Flowers on her toes...

So, I have a friend we call MaliBu, mostly because it suits her. She is funny, bubbly, laid-back, girly and the queen of all things pop culture. She also has this amazing set of gams that lend themselves well to shoes - particularly high, colorful, platform ones.

That's why when I saw that flower-printed, platform, high-heeled shoes are everywhere for spring and summer, I pictured her doing cartwheels. In the spirit of MaliBu (and spring fashion), get your manicured hands on your own pair! Their cheeky prints will add some girly flair to your otherwise standard outfits and some much-needed color to the same old, solid color ensembles we get so used to throwing on in the morning.

The shoe pictured above is the Nine West "Jai" Multi Platform Pump, the perfect platform peep-toe in almost too silly colors. Some others I find particularly fab are the Jessica Simpson "Brenda" Floral Denim Pump (a classic round-toe with a stacked heel and painterly print), the BCBGirls "Ariel" Multi-Floral Art Print Heel (another classic style with a truly versatile print) and the Guess "Carrie" Print Satin High-Heel Pump (a pointy-toe, sleek heel with a watercolor feel).

You know you want a go do some gardening in the shoe department!
