Autumn shoes too…

Well, of course I am going to talk about shoes!
Shoes, these days, are “a girl’s best friends”, since we can’t really have diamonds anymore. Never actually been interested in diamonds to be honest, but shoes? Never have enough!!!

So, as I said in the previous post, autumn wear isn’t that exciting, in order to make it different, accessories are the way to go.

Ballerinas are going pointy this season, which is good, even if one wears flats, with that nice “extension” at the front, we will all be able to look taller and thinner! The colours are nice too, navy, grey and colours. I even like, for the first time in my life I think, the ivory ones, in fact, I really like them!

The other shoes I think should never be missing from one’s wardrobe are the lace-ups. I adore the Dutti brogues…

Loafers are a classic and back on the stage…

I am afraid, as usual, I left out heels, I can’t help it, I prefer flats. Anyway, I don’t like high heel shoes with jeans, they look too ’80s…

Lace up shoes with an attitude!

I saw these lace up shoes on my favourite site Zalando and…

fell in love with them! Now, I know they are everything but simple….I know they can’t be worn with many things…AND they are expensive. … but, aren’t they gorgeous?!?  I think that if one  had a little money to spare and wanted something special, one should have them!

Here is how I would wear them:tmp_Collage 2013-10-13 08_00_24-82882433

Let’s talk autumn shoes!

Shoes! I adore shoes! So I thought I would start my autumn style suggestions with what I like best.
I think shoes are very important and make a huge difference to any outfit. Quality is very important too, having said that, I think that if one wants a pair of fashionable pretty pumps to use for only a season, one could buy something less expensive, as long as it is fun and different. But,the basic black shoe has to be good!

As mentioned before, I don’t really like heels much, that means you are going to find, at least for now, lots of very flat shoes.

I would divide them into three different styles:

1 LOAFERS/SLIP-ONS
2 BALLET PUMPS/BALLERINAS
3 BROGUES

Ok, the first group is what I am really excited about, as it is something new! Well… something which hasn’t been around for a while. I have always liked the “Gucci” loafer a lot and I think the “slipper” looks fun and very chic. I think they are going to be great both with skirts and trousers, although the set of legs need to be quite good…. anyway, keep the skirt quite long and the trousers short.
There are a few pairs which are rather flashy, so be careful! Only to be worn with a very understated outfit.
Here we are:





Next, ballet pumps, although some of the above perhaps could be considered to belong to this group…
I am happy to say ballerinas are going pointy again, which is good news as they make legs look much much longer!




And finally…. some laces. I can’t help it, I have always loved this kind of shoe and I have always had a pair. I generally prefer them with trousers but they are occasionaly nice with skirts too, something not short and tight, perhaps a tartan skirt or knitted dress. I like the chunkier version, not too much though. These too make your legs look thin and long.


I don’t want to talk about boots yet…..
Have fun with your “shoes shopping” and don’t forget to take a pair of socks with you! Speaking of which…. need to think and do some research about those too…
Bye bye.
