It is shoe time on the blog again! Its been a while since I have devoted an entire post to shoes! If you are new here, then let me get you well versed with the fact that, like most other women, I have a healthy 😉 shoe obsession. Most of my shoes are for practical work purposes with a some impractical ones few and far between! Feel free to check out the previous shoe posts under here.
Coming to the raging Half Yearly SALE that Nordstrom is having, what better time to stock up on the essentials for the year than now! I have curated a collection here that should suit all your needs for spring and summer, irrespective of the occasion! Also if you are on Instagram, check out the awesome $575 Nordstrom giftcard GIVEAWAY a few of us bloggers put together just in time for you!!
PUMPS: Pumps are my go to shoes for the regular work day and I wear it year around, but I am also realistic about the heel height, comfort for a full days wear and quality, so while I highly recommend owning neutral colors by Italian/European designers, many contemporary designers like Sarah Jessica Parker’s SJP, Cole Haan, Sam Edelman, Kate Spade and now MGemi make extremely good quality daily wearable pumps.
SANDALS: I seldom wear sandals to work, but they are my go to shoes for weekends or after work events. I am not a huge wedge heel lover, unless the wedge is narrow like this Sofft one or this Tory Burch one, and it is simply a personal esthetic choice for me. However I understand not everyone likes how that might look, so while I put aside my choice, I am absolutely loving the block heel trend that is back with a vengeance! Take for example this Via Spiga beauty OR this Vince Camuto peep toe mule! This style is here to stay and would work like a charm for any weekend/weeknight/day events where casual is the memo.
A word of caution: most sandals are open toe, and for that reason I must warn you, that you have to be very sure your toes will not stick out of the peep part of the shoe. That is an unsightly view and only means the shoe is not well made and/or smaller for your feet. Make sure the peep toe part or the front cut out part holds your toes perfectly in place without either squishing your little toe or pushing your thumb toe out to lick the ground.
I strongly suggest going for medium to high heels for business-casual/formal wedding events that are not being held in a garden/beach etc like settings. In those situations, refer to the wedge/block sandals guide. Otherwise, ankle tie heels are the best way to go. Take for example these Stuart Weitzman beauties. I am sure you have seen them everywhere, but I can tell you, they are as comfortable as they are sexy and you will be the best dressed guest at any occasion. If the heel height gives you vertigo, choose from these gorgeous laser cutout sandals from Vince Camuto, Ivanka Trump or the new MGemi.
FLATS: Given my bulging belly, I have started gravitating towards loafers, oxfords and flats. They are not just your average boat shoes, but something that is almost always wearable irrespective of work or play. For instance, after a long event, when your feet are about ready to kill you, give them a welcome break in these beauties.
Hope this post was able to provide you some insights into what you should get yourself during the upcoming Memorial day sales events! If you do buy something, please do share here, I am always curious to see what others end up buying eventually.
