Summer Prediction: Suede Shoes (Not Necessarily Blue)
Much like my last summer prediction, this post is about shoes. What can I say – I like shoes. The prevalence of suede for the summer comes as a bit of a surprise (I’ve personally always thought of suede as an autumn material) but is something I’m willing to go with.
