Tuesday Shoesday: Sharp Soles

Casadei Blade Pump

I love to pair these stunning Casadei pumps with bright colors and sleek accessories. This pair was my first dip into high-end footwear. They came into my possession about two years ago when I won RueLaLa’s super fun ShoeLaLa competition with a photo of my favorite MK sandals. I’ve bought and sold many shoes since then, but these aren’t going anywhere anytime soon! I usually go for shoes with four or five inch heels, but I chose the lower version of the Blade pump because I wanted to wear them comfortably. Definitely one of the more sensible choices I made!

Tuesday Shoesday: Minimalist

Express Runway Sandal Ankle Strap

These incredibly simple sandals have become my absolute favorite! I ordered these from Express on a whim because they were having a 40% off sale, and I’m so glad that I did! The minimalist silhouette is extremely versatile, and so comfortable that I find myself wanting to wear them almost every day. These sandals go great with everything from jeans to dresses! Just recently, Express released the sandals again in tan leather and red suede; I’m dying to get them in the other colors. I tried on a 7 in stores and they’re way too big, but I’ll cross my fingers and hope Express will make them in half sizes again.

Tuesday Shoesday: Lady in Red

Enzo Angiolini Nyambi Red Suede

Red shoes are a must-have in every woman’s closet. Although classic pumps are the obvious choice, straps and edgy details are always more interesting. The Nyambi by Enzo Angiolini is a fantastic alternative to tamer styles. The three chunky straps are balanced by a thinner heel, and the zippers are accented with tiny dagger charms. I absolutely love how they look!

Tuesday Shoesday: Hello Spring

Michael Kors Jenna Strappy Sandal

I like to welcome spring with a bang. After months of wearing boots and closed shoes, slipping my feet into a fantastic pair of strappy sandals feels so great. This particular pair by Michael Kors is one of my favorites. I plucked them off the shelves at TJ Maxx some time ago, and didn’t even debate putting them in my cart after trying them on. The color is probably my favorite thing about them, but I also love how comfortable they are. Needless to say, they get many complements. I even won a couple contests by sharing these!

Tuesday Shoesday: Casual Minimal

G-by-Guess-Malden-Black-Glitter-Flat-Sport-Sneaker

I remember wearing slip on sneakers when I was a kid, they were huge in the 90s. Those and Keds were probably the most popular styles in my small town when I was growing up. Of course, basic styles never really go away, and when they do come back, they’re better than ever before. I’m so happy that there has been a shift towards comfortable and fashionable sneakers lately. Don’t get me wrong, I love my heels, but there are days when this shoe lover just wants to slip into something more low maintenance. I’m dying for a pair of leopard print pony-hair slip-on sneakers (ala Céline), but I came across these glitter ones at DSW and fell in love. And they were on clearance!

Tuesday Shoesday: Summer Sneak Peek

BCBGeneration-Laser-Cut-Sandals

Greetings from the Dominican Republic! My boyfriend and I took a much-deserved vacation and jetted off to enjoy some warm weather. Although it’s definitely spring in Philadelphia, it’s nothing compared to the gorgeous 80 degree weather down in Puerto Plata. The sun has been shining during our entire trip and my feet are enjoying the sandal weather. The pair above was a birthday gift from my mom (she’s guilty of fueling my shoe addiction but I’m not complaining). They’re perfect for summer, super comfortable, and I love the laser-cut details!

Tuesday Shoesday: Glittering Gold

MICHAEL-Michael-Kors-Fulton-Fulton-Silver-Glitter-High-Top-Sneaker

Back in October, I spotted a pair of black Michael Kors Fulton sneakers at Nordstrom Rack. They weren’t quite my style, so I let them go. Just recently, I came across the ones above at my local Marshalls, which I love. The tan color, accented with gold lining and silver glitter, works wonderfully as an updated neutral for casual outfits. Although both versions of the Fulton are super cool, it’s not surprising that I prefer the suede to the patent. Head over to your closest Marshalls to check them out!

Tuesday Shoesday: Green with Envy

MICHAEL-by-Michael-Kors-Brena-Ankle-Boot-Green-and-Black

I’m not a big shootie person, I don’t really like how they look on me. Since I’m a runner, my calves aren’t exactly bird-like, and my personal opinion is that shooties look better on long, thin legs. Since the tops of shooties and short ankle boots end at just above or just below the ankle, they tend to make average legs look stumpy, especially if you have disproportionately small feet for your height (like me). So I generally stay away from them. However, I couldn’t resist trying on these Michael Kors Brena booties when I spotted them at Nordstrom Rack. They have an old-school Victorian feel, but they’ve been updated with modern metal accents, and I adore the deep green color. They looked as I expected on my feet, so they went back on the shelves for someone else.

Tuesday Shoesday: Neutral

White-and-Grey-Asos-Deny-Wedge-Sneakers

As much as I have come to love wedge sneakers, I haven’t gone overboard in purchasing all the amazing styles I’ve seen out there, such as this pink pair and this leopard pair. I chose to stick to plain colors and simple details for versatility. The wedge sneakers above from Asos were the first pair I bought, and they’re very comfortable. I’ve gotten a lot of comments about them, so it was definitely a great choice. I also own a pair of black Ash sneakers, which I find slightly more painful if I wear them for long periods of time. They’re a little less flexible overall. But both of them are far more comfortable than other wedge sneakers I’ve tried on, so they’re winners in my books!

Tuesday Shoesday: Buttoned Up

Sergio-Rossi-Spats-Buttoned-Boots

Sorry about the low quality image (my hand was shaking at the awkward ankle). The tone does kind of suit the style of the boots though, doesn’t it? A bit of vintage touch. Anyway, I spotted these gorgeous Stuart Weitzman Spat boots at Nordstrom Rack for the amazing clearance price of $174 (compared to $695 retail). The gold buttons sparkled at me from the shelves and I just had to try them on. They are very comfortable, and extremely easy to walk in despite the height of the heel. There’s a lot of extra cushioning inside, and the thicker heel makes them stable. Although the deal was too good to pass up, I did put them back on the shelves because they were slightly too large on my feet, even with thick socks on. But if you’re lucky enough to snag them, they’re sure to get you many compliments!
