shoes are the one accessory that can make or break an outfit. so pay attention when it’s time to make your final selection. if you are in the beginning stages of a wardrobe edit, please make certain you have a black and nude pump on hand. these two shoes simply go with everything and are a worthy investment. after that, the sky is the limit on what shoes to add to your collection. personally, i have a variety of heel heights. from flats to kitten heels to 3″ pointy-toed pumps. each of these styles has a time and place depending on what i’m wearing and where i’m going. ballet flats tend to be workhorses in my closet as this silhouette goes with skirts, dresses, shorts, and denim. but pair a pointy-toed pump with humble blue jeans and you’ve created instant chic! don’t be afraid to experiment with different heel heights to see which ones suit your look best. and if you happen to panic when it comes to adding color to your day-to-day look, shoes are a safe way to infuse a little oomph. just don’t forget to overlook patterns as well. in today’s shop sunday style, i’ve scoured my favorite brands to find this season’s latest looks. gingham is trending right now along with block heels. and fringe remains a favorite. i always have one or two metallics sitting in my closet, several strappy sandals, and a couple of pairs of flats. so relax with a glass of lemonade and scroll through what’s caught my eye for summer shoes.
