What I Wore: Neutrals

Jeans: Marc by Marc Jacobs (similar) | Shoes: Vince Camuto | Blouse: Rugby

I love color, but most of the time, my favorite outfits consist of various shades of neutral. I am one of those people who probably could live in just black and white, and I actually find myself holding back from doing this during the work week; I’m not quite ready to give up my blues, greens, and pinks! For the outfit above, I paired classic style with edgy details, my favorite combination. These Vince Camuto smoking slippers are some of the most comfortable and versatile shoes I own. I find myself wearing them very often. (Also, my cat wanted to pose for this photo…she matches the neutral theme!)

Double-Take: Alexander Wang Aminata

I love seeing shoes in a bold, striking hue. Combine this with a sleek design and you’ve got a winner. The Aminata heel from Alexander Wang has a rather simple silhouette, but the crocodile texture really makes the red color pop. You can get these at Farfetch and Barney’s Warehouse.

Tuesday Shoesday: Silver Sprinkles

Vince-Camuto-Lilliana-Studded-Smoking-Slippers

I first ventured into the world of smoking slippers back in December with an embellished pair from DSW. And although my style is more feminine with a bit of edge, I’ve found the menswear-inspired flats to be one of my favorites. They’re very laid back, extremely comfortable, and are a perfect finishing touch to my more casual sweater-and-legging outfits. It’s now the end of February and I’ve just gotten my third pair of smoking slippers. I found these by Vince Camuto at the bottom of the clearance rack at TJ Maxx for a steal at $20. I love them because of the quilted look, subtle snakeskin texture, and tiny studs across the entire shoe. They look a bit more refined than my other embellished pair, which makes them perfect for casual Fridays at the office!

Shoe of the Day: Ravishing in Red

Vince-Camuto-Oljera-Red-Ankle-Strap-Heel

Spring is just around the corner, and I’m glad to see that lady-like heels are still around. Sandals with ankle straps are fantastic shoes because they are both sexy and comfortable, if you find the right pair for you. An ankle strap helps keep the shoe stable on your feet, and the open structure reveals the feminine arches and painted toes. I especially love the Oljera by Vince Camuto because the color is so bright and the texture makes the shoe interesting. The little buckles on the side are the cherries on top of a fantastic pair of shoes. And if bright red isn’t your thing, they’re also available in black. I haven’t had the pleasure of trying them on in person, but I bet they’re very comfortable; I own several Vince Camuto shoes (both flat and heeled) and have never been disappointed. You can find these on Revolve, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale’s.

Shoe of the Day: Golden Sprinkles

Vince-Camuto-Follie-Wedge-Sneaker-with-Studs

I currently own three pairs of Vince Camuto shoes, and they’re all extremely comfortable, even the really high heels. So there’s no doubt in my mind that the Follie sneakers (available on ShoeBox and Dillard’s) would probably be one of the best wedge sneakers out there. Even without holding them in my hand, I can tell that the modest 2.75″ heel paired with lacing and padded suede upper adds to the comfort of these shoes. The quilting and teeny studs are such a great detail and add to the uniqueness of these sneakers. If I get a chance to try on a pair, I’ll report back! In the meantime, grab yourself a pair (they’re on sale!) and let me know what you think.

Double-Take: Stuart Weitzman 5050

These 5050 boots by Stuart Weitzman have everything: comfort, glamour, and even a little sex appeal thrown in. The mixed material makes them easy to wear with anything, from dresses and skirts to jeans and leggings. You can get them on Zappos, Bergdorf Goodman, Piperlime, and Bloomingdale’s.

15 Must-Have Sneakers

I’ve been slightly obsessed with sneakers lately. I remember a time when cool, fashionable sneakers for women were harder to find. Nowadays, you can spot them everywhere! The only problem I have with this is that some designs are becoming slightly over the top, such as studded to the point they become weapons, or a ridiculous clash of textures and colors. But for the most part, there are some really amazing and unique styles out there in addition to the timeless classics. One of my favorite pairs is the Marc by Marc Jacobs lace high top above (Lord & Taylor, SSense, Bloomingdale’s, Zappos). I love the touch of femininity the lace adds, and the peek of blue among the black. I started looking for few pairs of fun styles for myself, and I’ve come across so many different options. It was quite hard to narrow the selection, but I’ve picked out my top 15 choices that will add a little pizazz to your casual look.

Tuesday Shoesday: Mixed Media

Louise-et-Cie-Warren-Buckled-Pony-Hair-Ankle-Boot

On a recent trip to NYC, I had some time to pop into the 34th Street Vince Camuto store. I immediately gravitated towards these buckled ankle boots. The shape and style is fantastic, especially the golden heel, but what I like most is the use of mixed materials. The front is made in smooth leather with a matte finish, while the heel is made in shiny pony hair. The rich black patent straps around the ankle add the finishing touch to these fantastic ankle boots. These boots are from a relatively new line by Vince Camuto called Louise et Cie; you can find this particular style online at Nordstrom, and in different color variations on Vince Camuto.

Shoe of the Day: Bad-Ass Boots

Vince-Camuto-Winchell-Boot-with-Gold-Hardware

I’m a sucker for boots with buckles, not sure why; it’s probably because they just look so cool. Plus, they can turn any casual outfit into something that looks more edgy and high fashion. I’m dying to wear these Vince Camuto boots with super-dark jeans and a loose white sweater. But first I have to get my hands on a pair. I saw these boots go one sale last year (the retails price of $170 is a bit steep) but all sites were out of my size. So I’m extremely happy to see that they’re back this season (Zappos, Macy’s, Amazon). Hopefully I’ll be able to snag a pair for myself this time!
