It happens around this time each year, I think: I get restless with my current sandal selection and crave something new. This year I'm craving flat, walkable, yet chic sandals. Yesterday I brought home these Eileen Fisher Eva sandals, and today I'm trying them around the house. They are comfortable. I think they will be good walking sandals for my purposes (urban commuting, travel and sight-seeing, not on challenging terrain). I like that they are a little more refined looking than sandals that I usually choose. But are they me? One concern I have is the color, black. I tried on the camel, but didn't like the color against my skin. There were no other options. I thought the black looked good against my skin, but maybe it's too high-contrast? DH commented that they look "stark" with a dress. And I would want to wear them with dresses that I think would go with black, such as the one I'm wearing here.

What say you all? Yay (keep) or Nay (return)?

Decision: I think I'm keeping (scroll down for more on the decision, and more try-on photos)
