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!
Apparently when you purge your closet you can actually see all the items you have in it. Novel, right? As much as I used to be a trend follower, you'd be surprised how basic I've really become. Ridiculously basic. Perhaps a basic bitch. <wink, wink>
So here we are. Day 3 of me trying to complete a singular blog post this week and it's 9:20pm on Wednesday night. I am a writer by trade so you can imagine how incredibly unnerving this is for me. I used to crank out five posts a week with ease. And now...I am lucky if I manage two a week. Why? Well...
It's hard to beat a LWD for summer. It's cool, feminine and crisp even on the days when you feel like you're melting. Melting is in full effect in these parts but I'm not mad at it because that means double the popsicles!
After a long pause from color, I am dipping my toes back in for the 4th of July in a big way! Hello Americana! I am so excited at how easily this outfit came together. Completely unplanned in the best kind of way. I always works that way doesn't it?
Well Happy Friday my people! The temps are rising and I am sharing my favorite summer fashion find - this $28 orange dress! I get more compliments on this lil diddy and for that price, gosh, take two!
You can't take the city out of the girl. It may be Sprummer here in Chicago but black will always be a wardrobe staple in my closet.
I've managed to hang onto these faux leather shorts for nearly a decade and I am so glad I did.
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!
