Oh, What a Shoe Can Do!

A shoe is not only a design, but it’s a part of your body language, the way you walk. The way you’re going to move is quite dictated by your shoes.

Happy Friday!

I hope you've been enjoying the first couple days of fall! It's still pretty warm in NYC, but you can definitely feel the weather starting to change, and I'm getting super excited for sweater weather, booties, and all things pumpkin!  

Today I'm talking about what a shoe can do. Shoes are like the punctuation mark at the end of a sentence - the last thing we put on, yet the main indicator of the statement we're trying to make. Depending on the style of shoe, they can make a LBD formal or laid-back, slacks business or casual, and a romper beach or club-appropriate.

The right pair of shoes can elevate you. Yes, a nice pair of heels can literally elevate you to higher heights, but a shoe with or without a heel can uplift you as well. The right pair of shoes can put a little pep in your step. A boost of confidence. They also can take any outfit and instantly make it more exciting. 

For my outfit inspo this week I'm rocking destroyed denim jeans and a tee, with my Steve Madden stiletto sandals - an example of using shoes to make an outfit more exciting. I love putting pieces together that don't seem like a match; the final product is almost always more interesting and unique than the traditional route. The jeans and t-shirt are very casual, but when paired with the right shoe it instantly takes the outfit to the next level. I completed the look with two of my every day staples: my Rebecca Minkoff bag and ray-Ban sunnies.

Break out your favorite pair of shoes and have a great weekend :)
