Oh my god SHOES! Welcome to another fashion post where we show you the REAL things we’ve bought and love in REAL LIFE on REAL bodies! And this time we’re chatting shoes, guys. A few weeks ago we were in a team meeting and Caitlin told us how she can’t stop buying statement shoes (and this was at the time where she could hardly walk due to back issues). Then we chatted about how we’ve all been buying fun out on the town kind of shoes although there aren’t that many places to go still. SO we thought…why not round up all the shoes we’ve purchased and have been wearing and then share it with you all??? Are ya ready? Let’s do this.
From left to right here we go. Obviously, these are classic, but make any “boring outfit” look intentionally casual and cool (not ANY, but you get the idea). I throw these on 3 times a day and the more they are worn, the better they are. These are the mules I bought for the Target shoot a few weeks ago and I’ve been wearing them almost every day since. They’re EXACTLY what I need for running around town doing errands, plus they’re incredibly affordable.
HELLO, IT’S ME, YOUR FRIENDLY EHD GIANT. Not to be dramatic, but discovering these clogs kinda like…changed my life? Maybe you can relate – I’ve always been a little self-conscious about taking up too much space (shoutout to my fellow tall & curvy pals!), so the idea of investing in 4″ platform shoes for “everyday-wear” was LAUGHABLE. But last year, I discovered Charlotte Stone and now I’m the proud owner of 8 (!!!!) pairs of BIG ASS SHOES. They make me feel really confident and powerful (but maybe that’s just because I’m now 6’ tall and I can step on anyone who is mean to me before smothering them with my surplus of tops with balloon sleeves) – and beyond that, they’re just really comfortable and easy to pull out for daily wear. I have two pairs of Marlos (the printed clog and the tan leather clog – the latter is such a good dupe for Em’s infamous clogs) but I’m most in love with Bonnie, the one with the back strap, because they’re so secure and I truly feel as if I could run a mile in them. LOVE LOVE LOVE. (I think this link generates a special coupon code and then we can both be giant women, taking up a ton of space together!!!)
I had been eyeing these clogs since Em got them! Then when she so generously let us raid her garage, there they were and are now mine. They are SO cute on, the perfect amount of height and are “a statement” without being a statement. They are still available at Madewell so if you have been wavering, waver no more. Thank you again, Em! (P.S. These were those jeans I talked about two weeks ago!)
I wrote about these bad boys in the link up last week (BEFORE I KNEW WE WERE DOING THIS POST, OKAY?) But they’re both so good that I just had to tell you about them again. The flats on the left are my everyday running around summer shoes and the wild statement shoes on the right are my sassy brunch shoes. Both are SO comfortable and so cute!! I’m such a shoe hoarder.
I have these ballet flats in tan and blue and I wear them almost every day. I love how they go with everything in my closet and I feel very cute and ~effortless~ when I wear them. Over on the right…THESE are my favorite flat shoes ever. They surprisingly go with everything, they can be dressed up or down, and they are just classic and so cute.
