We talk a lot about basics on this blog, but what about fun and whimsy and personality? The way I see it, it’s my job to help women learn the basics so they can add other, more fun pieces to the mix. And one of the easiest places to have a little more fun is with footwear.
Jaclyn Day and I are equally smitten with these striped flats with a red patent toe-cap. They’re great for weekends wearing jeans or a breezy white dress.
Like flats? How about a studded loafer? Or a bright coral flat ballet slipper? I also like these laser-cut flats in ashy-pink, these grey ankle-strap flats with peach accents are lovely and I love the Middle Eastern look of these graphic-printed flats.
Prefer shoes with height? I love the tonal accents on these grey suede pumps. This Ivanka Trump pump takes the basic “nude” pump and kicks it up a notch with great styling and accents. And I love the mix of textures on these shoes, they’re perfect for summer weddings or cocktail parties.
But if you want a wide selection of unique, cool shoes at fiscally feasible prices, you want Zara. I find the best shoes there. Nearly every pair I own that people comment on are from Zara. They’re online shoe shop is my little secret…well, not anymore.
I wore these crazy, printed, studded wedges on my birthday, and I love them. They’re really a departure for me, and that’s what I like most about them.
