I love the way ankle strap pumps look. They cover only a tiny sliver of your foot, making you appear taller and letting your outfit be the star of the show. I first admired this shoe style a couple years ago, when luxury brands made them available. Now you can get the same look for much less - mine were only $25 from Payless! (I also have them in black, worn here.) I got this outfit idea from Beyonce, below. I think she looks way better (seriously, it's Beyonce), but overall this an outfit idea I'd be happy to steal!
