Fabulous Friday-10 Shoes For Every Occasion

“One shoe can change your life.” -Cinderella

As we get closer to spring, it’s time to take an inventory of your shoes!  Do you have tons of sandals but not much of anything else?  Here are some suggestions on basic shoes that you should have in your closet.  With these 10 pairs of shoes, you will have something appropriate for any occasion.

I know that some of you are going to say 10 pairs of shoes is not even enough for you.  I would fall into that category.  Don’t feel like you have to limit yourself to 10 pairs of shoes but make sure out of all your shoes, you have these 10 to round out your wardrobe.  If you’re thinking you don’t have anywhere near 10 pairs of shoes, consider adding the pairs you’re missing so you have a more rounded wardrobe.   Take a look and see what you think in comparison to your closet.  If you’d like more details, just click on the picture.

5) A cute pair of flats are another must have.  These can be worn to work when you know you’ll be on your feet all day or they can be worn on a fun Saturday with skinny jeans.  They have a lot of flexibility and give your feet a much-needed break from heels.

6) Wedge sandals are perfect when you you’re wearing a casual summer dress or skirt-especially if you’re going out.  They add that extra wow factor to something casual and make it more sophisticated.

7) A pair of flat sandals are perfect for those summer days when you want to throw on something low-key and low hassle.  I recommend them for running around in casual shorts or summer dresses and also for the beach or a vacation.

10) Western boots have been around forever but are gaining in popularity all over the world.  They look great with skirts, dresses, skinny jeans, leggings, just about anything!  There are so many different styles to choose from that you’re sure to find one you like!  If you don’t happen to be fond of Western boots, riding boots are also a great addition to your wardrobe.  They don’t have as much flexibility as the Western boot but they look fantastic with skinny jeans and leggings!

Trend Alert: Boots

I’m still living out of boxes but that’s OK.  I’ve decided that it’s OK to just take my time unpacking everything and to enjoy deciding where things will go.  I was sucking the joy out of life by trying to set a world record for the fastest unpacking!  Sometimes, we’re so busy with life we don’t actually LIVE our lives!

These boots were made for walking…and dancing…and shopping…and all the other fun things you’re going to do!!!  I just LOVE boots!  They’re so much fun to wear-especially with a great pair of skinny jeans or a great sweater dress!  My favorite pair of boots right now are my sequined cowboy boots.  Riding boots and military inspired boots are really big right now.  What are your favorite pair of boots?

If you’re like me, I’m always on the hunt for a good pair of boots.  Here are some great boots at great prices.  Now is the perfect time to snatch some up!  Enjoy your Tuesday!
