If the Shoe Fits, Wear it! How to Plan Your Entire Outfit Around Your Feet

Fashion & Style

I’ve always considered myself a shoe person. Now I wouldn’t say I’m totally obsessed by any means but there are not many things that make a bad day completely better than sliding on a new pair of shoes. Regardless if I’ve showered or even brushed my hair, I feel just a little bit more fresh and put together if my shoes are shining. While perusing through Pinterest the other day, I definitely got to thinking about how the bottom half of my wardrobe could use a little refresh. I actually haven’t purchased a SINGLE pair of shoes since Bennett was born, which is just silly because that’s the only part of my body that has gone back to “normal” almost 8 months postpartum! Inspired by the fact footwear is the one style choice I can make with abandonment, the team and I put together our top five must-have looks paired with our most longed after summer shoes! What do you think? Which ones should I buy??? And how are we feeling about this whole “mom mule” trend? I’m 100% on board.

    Wow!! Great photography and some amazing shoes. I was crazy about sneakers at one point in time. Though that phase is gone, I am still an ardent follower of latest designs in footwear.

    Thank you for this lovely post. Have a good day. 🙂

    The start in Europe of relentless and progressively fast change in garments styles can be sensibly dependably dated. History experts, including James Laver and Fernand Braudel, date the beginning pay someone to do my essay shape in attire the point of convergence of the fourteenth century; regardless, they tend to depend energetically on contemporary imagery and edified creations were not fundamental before the fourteenth century.
