It's funny how I began the capsule wardrobe with only my "clothes" in mind. Over the years, it has developed into something that I practice with my shoes, outerwear, accessories, work out gear and even home decor. I really love having less items of higher quality in all areas. My items last longer and are usually more comfortable when I have invested a little more in them.
|My dressy shoes!|
I've recently added a pair of nude peep toes to the collection.
So, let's talk shoes. Remember last week I blogged about the 2 top places to invest your money? Well, in case you missed it, "shoes" is one of them! It's so funny how a shoe can practically transform an outfit. Take a plain black dress...you can blend in almost anywhere. However, if you add a pair of red heels (instead of the typical black), you're going to find yourself getting compliments everywhere you go.
|My cold weather boots are my favorites :)|
Or if instead of just another pair of normal winter boots, you wear your leopard print Tom's wedges, you'll be shocked at how many people come up to you and comment on your shoes! I've heard it said that people don't really notice your feet. Remember in Shawshank Redemption, how the main guy was able to steel the boss' shiny shoes and break out of jail with no one noticing his feet? I never bought that. People do notice. If you are wearing a great outfit and not the right shoes, it's obvious. Just like if you are wearing a great outfit and a great pair of shoes, it's obvious...you will get compliments left and right because people do notice what's on your feet.
|Gotta be practical right? |
These are my workout, camping and hiking shoes!
|And summer...don't you love the warm days where you|
can just live in your flip flops?
Give me some ideas! I really do love shoes...cute shoes. But, I like to be comfortable and I'd like to keep my feet in good working order (which means I need more flats in my wardrobe). Any brands that have cute flats with colors and patterns that I could add to my capsule wardrobe? Plus, I'm tall (5'8"), so I don't have to wear heels since I am usually taller than everyone anyway. Shoot me with your favorite brands!
