sandals'Tis the season of stems, sandals, and stilettos, but you know what I just hate about the summer? All those leg workouts I wish I did.

While I should've been in the gym workin' on my fitness all winter long, I was in the kitchen, snacking on cookies, cannolis & cupcakes -- and now instead of happily showing off my lean legs, I'm worried everyone is going to notice (gulp) ... my cankles.
