+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: April 22

These coral heels would look wonderful with navy, grey or white separates.  You could also wear them with mint, blush or cobalt.  These particular heels have a mid-height heel and a padded insole for comfort.  If you like coral, I also found these adorable suede, ankle strap sandals from Dorothy Perkins.

In addition to coral, I like red heels for every season.  They breathe boldness into any outfit.  These Isola Suri Pumps come in a beautiful garnet, while these Nine West Drusilla heels are lipstick red.

Also for spring, try pumps in a medium purple hue, like these Rockport Hecia kitten heels.  Cobalt heels make a statement, as do these mint pumps from Ivanka Trump.  And if you want something really on trend, try a bright hue like citron.

Do you wear colored pumps?  If so, which shades are your favorite?

    I love colored pumps! Even though it’s not terribly adventurous, I really like navy. But also anything pink is fabulous.

    I’m definitely leanimg more toward coral than red this summer. Not that it has to be one or the other, but last summer I used red to pair with navy and camel. This summer I want something different.

    Agree on the Navy, my favorite blue shoes are almost on their last legs and it makes me want to cry. I bought some Missoni pumps a couple years ago and have been pleased with how versatile they ended up being – so much so that I bought some flats too :).

    I wear all neutrals all the time, except for shoes. In my closet right now are pink, burgundy, and turquoise flats; coral, pink, and red heels; and turquoise wedges. I’d like add a pair of either cobalt or bright teal heels to the collection this spring.

    I love that color of coral. There were a pair of bright red Vince Camutos at Nordstrom that I can’t stop thinking about, though. The last thing I need is a pair of fire engine red shoes, but I really, really liked them.

    I’ve been wearing all neutral shoes lately. I think I need to branch out.

    Have people seen the Sophia Webster for J Crew items? I don’t love all of them but some are really funky and cute:



    I had picked these up in their last shoe collaboration and I’ve been wearing them a couple times a week now that it’s warm (again way more versatile than expected with the bright shoes).

    I have multiple pair of coral shoes and purple shoes. Most of my basic wardrobe is gray it seems and I like those colors with gray. For $29 I think I might give those Liz Clairbornes a shot!
