For the past few weeks (maybe months), I’ve been obsessing over velvet booties. Velvet is such a winter fabric, but I’ve always been a little indifferent about wearing velvet shoes. Wet velvet can’t be a good idea, right? Yet, despite my logic, velvet ankle boots have been popping up everywhere. So much so, that I’ve developed an obsession. You can get a pair of these ‘it’ shoes in various colors and prints, if that’s your thing.
So, please join on the plight of finding a pair of cute velvet booties.
I’ve been having a very difficult time selecting the right shoe in the morning. Here in Memphis, the weather has been very typical; inconsistent. One day it’s a perfectly chilly day to wear your favorite denim jacket and the next day you find your self looking under your bed for your other black flip flop. I was so frustrated with my fall shoe options while I was getting dressed this morning. I needed an option that was chic and comfortable enough to wear to the office, but didn’t have many options. The answer was a pair of leopard print loafers.
I firmly believe that every stylish closet needs a pair of leopard print loafers, which I had until this past spring. I wore out my Jeffrey Campbell loafers until they were too big to wear. Leopard print loafers are so easy style and comfortable to wear. So, I need a new pair ASAP! There are plenty of options out there and here are the ones that I’m leaning toward.
Aside from cozy sweaters and big mugs of hot chocolate, fall shoes are the best. From booties to loafers, I love all the different options available for braving the cold. But instead of focusing on the traditional types, this post is going to touch on some of the more unique, but equally stylish, footwear that’s trending for autumn. Take a peek at my picks below to get some seasonal inspiration!
When fall hits, I become obsessed with a certain number of things that don’t quite feel appropriate any other time of year, such as burgundy manicures, multiple pumpkin flavored foods, and loafers. Ah, loafers! Some people hear “loafers” and think of retired grandpas and librarians. However, loafers are not your grandpa or favorite elementary school librarian’s shoes any more. Loafers have evolved into some pretty cute and style shoes in different shapes and styles. Now, you can find a pair of loafers in multiple colors and materials, including metallic fringe loafers. I’m obsessed with metallic fringe loafers!
In case you are new around here, I love metallic, especially metallic shoes and accessories. Since I’m not really into bright and sparkly clothing, I opt to look for accessories that subtly add some unexpected sparkle to my look every now and then. So, it’s not much of a shock that I’ve been eyeing and dying over all the metallic fringe loafers out this season. They are the perfect mix of classic meets fun and trendy. I’m so down for this trend, FYI.
I first became of obsessed with this style of loafer when Gucci (of course) released the metallic version of their leather fringe loafer pumps. Ridiculously amazing, in my opinion. The only thing I couldn’t fall in love with was the price. Thankfully, other brands realized the beauty in metallic fringe loafers and followed suit with their own renditions of this revitalized classic shoe style. So thankful for mass production and lower prices.
So, you know your girl some low and high options for you to strut in some glitter fringe loafers this season. Check them out!
This weekend I began my annual loading up of leggings to replace my thinning (and maybe holing) summer leggings. When I think of fall and winter looks that involve leggings, 98.9% of the time, combat boots are the shoe pairing of choice. For some reason, the combat boots and leggings look is an everyday no-brainer for a casual fall look. It’s probably one outfit that I could and sometimes do wear 7 days a week.
Unfortunately, it hasn’t been quite cool enough for me to break out my beloved Jeffrey Campbell combat boots that I’ve had and worn for over 3 years. Although they are perfectly aged and still look great, it would be nice to had a “newer” looking pair to the fall shoe gang. I’m not sure if I want to get another flat pair of get casual sexy with a heeled one. How about a shiny pair or over the knee pair? So many options, but I’m loving the hunt.
Here are some stylish combat boots for fall that are very worthy contenders.
