Today's So Shoe Me is the Cambridge Cutout Oxford, $48, available at Need Supply. Could this oxford cut it out with the cuteness already?! With a pastel hued colorway, dainty laser cuts and a price tag that will make even the biggest Scrooge smile, there really is no stopping this sweet and happy shoe. The oxford has proved its staying power over the last few seasons, but why splurge on trendy pastel hues when you can get the same look for under $50?! The faux suede upper looks like the real deal and is easier to clean and also leaves you without guilt when a spill or scuff eventually happens on this light grey upper. Cute and dainty cutouts add a bit of ventilation for summer, but also add the opportunity for a pop of colored sock for spring. Pair these must have lace-ups with a pretty floral print a-line dress and swiss dot ankle socks for a retro 50s spin on spring style.

So Shoe Me a pair of pretty in pastel lace-ups with dainty cutouts and an even more delicate price tag that will still leave room in my budget for other summer style necessities.
