Sometimes I feel like women who are interested in fashion are pre-programmed with a gene that makes them lovelove shoes. It’s like shoes are the holy grail of fashion — they’re creative, a little bit impractical, and completely irresistible. Every girlfriend I know has a closet full of them in every height and style.
Well… I have a confession. I am not that woman. I am quicker to go for a rack of breezy dresses, blouses, or even jeans (gasp) than I am the shelves of shoes. I’m picky when I purchase shoes, and then I just do my best to take extra-good care of them so that I can have them resoled as necessary.
I know. It’s weird! Especially for a girl who — admittedly — never feels like her closet is complete. I mean why stop at shoes?! Recently, I’ve been thinking about branching out into uncharted shoe territory a bit — perhaps a floral print heel for spring? Or something a bit cheeky, like a cat ballet flat?
In the meantime, here are some of my favorite staples (from Nordstrom — shoe shopper’s paradise!). You can bet that these styles will be on frequent rotation in my closet in the coming months.
Are you a shoe lover? Tell me your ways! :)
