My favorite part about February being around the corner is that high heels and exposed toes are returning to fashion fairly soon. Although it's not happening yet in most states, living in San Diego allows me to expose toes and embrace the stiletto world before others. The warmer climate lets me explore the sky-high club, which means I get to take advantage of high heels and peep toes before my East coast sisters. Although I look forward to wearing boots in October, by the time February is around the corner I'm bored with my calf-hugging boots. I'm excited to move on and free myself from the calf leeches.

Guiseppe Zanotti shoes are always sexy and bold. I love thin heels that exude femininity and daintiness. The thin heel looks more elegant and less bulky, especially when combined with a cute girly color like pink, which compliments pastel colors that everyone will wear in the upcoming months. Wear these sky high patent pink shoes with your pastel dresses and make up and you'll look like a girly girl who grew up and turned sexy.

Perhaps spending a good chunk of money on a pair of bright pink shoes isn't in the cards for you. I recommend checking out Bebe's ultra sassy suede looking shoes. The neutral color and golden strap on top can accompany any color scheme and will compliment any skin tone. Keep your toes exposed in this gorgeous pair that happen to be on sale!

Since I began with a high end feature, I will end with a luxury feature. My birthday is coming up and this next pair is the only thing on my wish list. I absolutely adore them! The Fendi 'Fendista' open toe platforms are killer shoes. This sexy 3-color scheme of pink, red and black are super sexy and I love the Fendi emblem in the front of the shoe.
