The only thing that has kept me from trying a capsule wardrobe has been my shoes. I love shoes and limiting them feels like limiting happiness. That said, I've been working on narrowing down essentials lately, and have arrived at a few pairs of shoes I think everyone needs. These shoes transcend seasons and their practicality is beautiful. Here we go:
About this time last year I invested in a pair of Lucky Brand Basil boots. At the time I was a manager at a coffee house and was on my feet for hours. I wanted something classy and comfortable. I was not disappointed. This is not an ad and I'm not making money saying this. For all the people who have asked me about these booties, yes- they are worth it. You need a pair. They can be worn with everything, from sundresses to sweaters. These naturally distressed beautifully.
Everyone needs a good pair of moccasins. I have two pairs, one seen in the header (El Paso) of this page and another pictured below ( Moose driving moccs). Both are from Minnetonka and both are very comfortable. I quickly discovered the most amazing thing... the moose hide is coffee stain resistant. What a glorious realization.
And then there are rainy days. L.L. Bean boots are my go too. They are comfortable and extremely waterproof. They also go with any style. I have the 10" hunting boots. Pictured below is my sister in her 8" classic boots.
Don't forget about the sneakers! I love my vintage Nikes and have my eyes on New Balance for Madewell. Don't be afraid of bold colors! Most of my wardrobe is color neutral so a pair of blue suede sneaks adds a pop to my usual skinnies and gray tees.
Lastly, everyone needs classy heels- no explanation needed. Well, there you go! My favorite, daily shoe choices for 2016. Go be classy friends!
