The shoes you have to have

I have an excessively large shoe collection. So much that I “lost” about fifteen pairs of my summer shoes that I had stowed away and completely forgotten about! While it was exciting “finding” them and having new shoes to wear, it also made me realize that I could afford to simplify my shoe wardrobe. By looking through and picking out the shoes that are worn out, outdated, or that I simply never wear, it made it clear which shoes should stick around and which could go to Goodwill.

I am getting ready to move into a new apartment in coming weeks, and it’s very likely that the storage space will be very limited. (DC apartments are not very forgiving when it comes to size.) I want to make sure I have the necessities that will be versatile, yet still fun. If I HAD to narrow it down to ten, these are the pairs I’d have to have:

1. CLASSIC PUMPS

01

Adelia D’Orsay Pump $158 $95 code BRFIND40

These will never go out of style, they are the perfect height, and you will feel amazing in them!

2. BALLET FLATS

06

Gap Classic Leather Ballet Flats $40 $26 code HALF

These will always be in style, and they’re perfect for any and every outfit.

3. T-STRAP SANDALS

045

LOFT T-Strap Sandals $30

Easy to walk in and goes with everything – your basic go-to summer sandal.

4. POP OF COLOR

07

Sam Edelman Zola $130 $90

A fun shoe can make for an amazing outfit! (I can’t wait to start wearing bright shoes with white dresses for summer.)

5. SIMPLE WEDGES

02

Banana Republic Tecla Espadrille Sandal $98 $59 code BRFIND40

The perfect summer shoe. I love the height – a lot of wedge with a little platform!

6. LEOPARD PRINT

4

Saks Fifth Avenue Leopard Spot Pumps $325 $150

Because “leopard is a neutral,” and all that.

7. POINTED-TOE FLATS

2268519-1-MULTIVIEW

Michael Kors Janae $325 $163

On the days you don’t want to wear pumps, but still want to look professional.

8. NEUTRAL SLIDES

03

J.Crew Cyprus Sandals $78 $43 code GETSHOPPING

Minimal yet chic – you can easily dress up an outfit with these pretty sandals.

9. SNEAKERS

654

Keds Pointer $50 $30

Great shoes to kick around in when you’re running around, or just hanging out.

10. COLORBLOCK FLATS

Rachel Roy Nola $225 $90

These will add a bit of polish to any outfit. Black and white goes with everything!
