So many shoes... OhMyG, which ones to choose!?
A girl loves options, but sometimes the choices can be overwhelming!
Wedges, gladiators, flip flops, peep toe flats, kitten heels, pumps, platforms. Sheesh! With all of these potentially fabulous shoes to choose from, how do we find the ones that look best with which outfit? It can be very challenging Middle Sisters, but never fear! Your oh-so-fashionable Drama Queen is here to make these choices just a bit easier for you.
First of all, choose something comfy! Does fashion have to kill your toes? Well sometimes that is unfortunately unavoidable...But for the most part, we should be able to walk and dance and frolic in our adorable footwear.
Second, don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. Yes, everyone should have the standard black pump and nude flat to throw on at the last second, but your shoes are where you can go crazy with prints and colors!
Finally, stay true to your personal sense of style. Just because Sarah Jessica Parker can get away with wearing fuchsia heels with feathers, does not mean you should try to work them into your wardrobe :-)
So, here are a few of my favorite shoes available at Nordstroms this season. Along with the shoescome a few suggestions of how and where and with what to wear them.
This Kimball2 Flat by REPORT is sooooooooo cute. Now, I know the pom pom might be controversial, but look at the color of this turquoise! It is absolutely stunning, like I'm looking straight into the ocean. This can be a day or night flat. For day, pair with skinny black jeans (rolled slight above the ankle bone), a black and white striped tee or billowy white blouse. For night, scan your closet for anything deep purple or burnt orange. The colors will play off of each other creating a very romantic ensemble.
I am absolutely loving these chains. This Twist Bootie by BCBGeneration is incredible I know. Usually this Drama Queen stays away from chains, but these are very elegant looking. This is definitely a shoe that needs something more muted on top. Again, find a bold color in your closet to pair this with. Since this boottie is high above the ankle, wear this with a skirt or dress that hits mid-thigh or is at least a little billowy so as to create the illusion of elongated legs.
Ahhhhhhh I love this Syreta Pump by Pelle Moda with every inch of my beating heart. Look at this shoe! I think it might embody the essence of me... I would wear this solely as a day shoe. Pair with a white flowy beach dress or a fitted dress in earth tones. This is also suitable for office, as long as your clothing is on the conservative side.
The detailing on this Femme Sandal by Zigi Girl is incredible. They completely married the gladiator style sandal with more of a beach turned urban twist. Beautiful! Wear this sandal with whatever you want. Seriously. There are so many colors, making this sandal not only versatile, but vibrant!
Well, these are my ultra fab selections to round out these hot summer months. I'd love to hear what your go-to summer shoe is!? See you next week Sisters.
Your always fashionable Drama Queen
