Q. The fall season is coming up and I am ready to invest in some new shoes for my wardrobe. I am a busy mom and constantly on the go! I need to find 3-4 pairs that are comfortable and that will get me through different weather types and various occasions. Are there any specific styles you suggest?
A. Fall is my favorite season to invest in new shoes. I also find that booties and more cold friendly footwear are way more comfortable on your feet. If I was to invest in 4 new pairs of shoes this is what I would recommend:
A cute day sneaker. Something that is obviously very comfortable to walk around in and stylish enough to pair with your outfits. I love my high top Converse sneakers. During the day you will usually find me in leggings, so I find that my Converse go with everything in my wardrobe. I have a black pair and a white pair. Stick with a neutral color so that they are easy to match with your outfits.
A low bootie. These are perfect day to night shoes. A bootie is also extremely versatile as it can go with jeans, leggings, shorts, or even a cute dress. I love the grey color I picked out in the collage below. It gives you some versatility from your typical black and brown pairs.
Flat riding boots. The key here is to find boots that are both comfortable and made well. I would go with either a black or a dark brown pair. The black will get less dirty on those gross wet rainy days. These type of boots are perfect for any occasion and can easily be dressed up for a night out.
A classic pump. I would go with a fun bold color. Dark green or a pretty maroon would be prefect for fall. A closed toe high heeled pump will never go out of style so this is a safe investment. This would be an evening shoe but it’s nice to have this type of pair in your wardrobe. I love throwing on a pair with a skinny jeans, a pretty blouse and a leather jacket. My perfect fall outfit.
