Mint Sprig Booties
These shoes are exactly as pictured. A very light mint green with a pretty silver trim and gold inside. They aren't too high of a heel, and they do run a little small. I normally wear a 7.5 and the 8 fits perfectly. This was expected but I still put 'slightly smaller' so that it doesn't look like they fit as sized. That's also why I'm giving them 4 stars instead of 5.
I will say that the top part does go up pretty high on my ankle- if I lean in certain directions it hits the bottom of my Lateral Malleolus (the sticky outie part of your ankle) and can be a bit painful. Fortunately I work in an office and will not be walking much in these shoes, and being so on sale it's not worth sending them back over (and they are honestly completely adorable). I think wearing them with tights or cute lacey ankle socks will help. I didn't let this take off a star for my rating, because not everyone will have this problem. Had I bought these for my wedding though I would be returning them because it's simply not wearable for me for that type of event.

These are so pretty in real life! I bought my regular size and they fit great! The color in real life is a bit more mint/teal, but it only adds to the beauty of the shoes. They feel sturdy and when tied are secure. I have worn them around the house for hours and only feel the normal tiredness of heel wearing sober. (all u ladies know what i mean) No rubbing or pinching. The only thing i dont like are the ties. They match perfectly but they dont tie into pretty bows that easly and kind of poke out. It is not going to stop me from wearing them what so ever. But if you are picky its just something I noticed. The first pair were not up to par for me and BHLDN had another pair shipped super quick while I kept the 1st pair so I could compare! Very nice of them and they were so helpful, shipping back to them was a breeze. I would totally use them again and I really highly recommend these shoes! Wish there was a pro pict of them with a white back ground! the color is just to cool!

so close to perfect
I was really hoping these would look "mintier" in person. They are only very subtlety mint. In some light they are a very light mint and in other light a very light silver/almost white.
They are very sturdy and comfortable shoes, however, so I am torn. I think I could wear these all day and I am not a girl who wears heels. Also, it said to size up but my regular size 9 was right.
