12 Must-Have Shoes I Can't Live Without
Ladies! If there's one topic I am passionate about it's SHOES! You've probably noticed a trend with my footwear and it's pretty simple. Once I like something...I wear the hell out of it. So, today, I'm sharing 12 of my must-have kicks that transform just about any outfit and have boat loads of versatility.
Every single pair is in rotation, rarely do I pull from the archives unless it's a fancy occasion. The good news? Many of them are under $100, too and I am most certain that there are some major deals to be had as we head into the winter season. Here are the 12 shoes that you need in your closet at all times:
- A classic low pump
- A pastel high heel for Spring
- Strappy, neutral midi-heels for dresses and jeans
- A nude patent leather - worth the splurge!
- Fun, strappy red sandals
- Black OTK boots
- Classic, red ankle strap heels - I wear them constantly!
- Neutral espadrilles for shorts and dresses
- Anything cork - hello 70's!
- My weekend kicks - shell toes FTW!
- Strappy velvet heels for Autumn
- The classic black suede heel - always in rotation!
Happy Monday...get your shop on below!
T-minus two days before the big 4-0 and our long awaited trip to New Orleans. I'd like to pretend I've not a care in the world but the truth of the matter is that I have a ten mile long list of items to check off that fluctuate between work, groceries, manicures and most importantly, my littles!
The return of track pants has got to be one of the most welcome fashion trends to hit my closet. Now they can be dressy or for the weekends. I just love them and this particular pair is high waisted making them just a bit more "extra".
I got 99 problems and Spring ain't one of 'em. This is Day 2 of glorious weather and it feels like the biggest gift. Windows open, kids playing in the yard and long after-dinner walks. We've been waiting a long time for this and I think the Midwest deserves this.
I am digging these flared pants in a major way. Not only are they completely slimming but the color is so rich and saturated. Kind of unexpected, too!
I swear it was 70 degrees recently. And this, my friends, is the perfect outfit to transition into Spring; ideally for work. I bought it at my girlfriend's boutique - Sanems - and she advised that I could wear it with tights in the winter but I haven't been that brave. I do picture textured, black tights with booties though. Definitely going to file that one in the back of my brain.
Ever have one of those days where you have no idea what to wear and the weather gods are behaving like total misfits? Yep, that was Sunday for me. Today, currently sleeting, hailing and snowing. Oh brother.
It's true that trends are often recycled over time but polka dots for Spring is one I will never tire of. It seems like every website I turn to is laden with polka dot tops, shoes, headbands and bags. This is one trend I never worry about going too overboard with. Polka dots = happiness!
I cannot even begin to describe the last eight days to you. It was equal parts heartbreaking as it was exhausting. Our family got hit bad. As in...got hit by the flu bug and it took every single one of us down. My kids JUST returned to school today. Yep, they missed an entire week of school.
Another day of smiling through the cold. That's how it works in February, right? Whelp, if you're gonna do it, might as well stay stylish.
Consider this week an official week at home. We now have three out of four of us down for the count. My living room looks like an infirmary. I have calls and one meeting scheduled but beyond that you will find me in sweatpants this week. I think my body is still trying to decide if it's gonna give in to this nasty flu virus that has taken residence in our house.
And a Happy Tuesday to you! I feel like I am still recovering from the Super Bowl despite remaining completely sober. Is that possible? Maybe sleep is the answer. I have so much on my mind and some pretty tight deadline. Am I already dreaming about next weekend? You betcha!
