In the spirit of fall, I recently purchased a pair of brown oxford lace-up shoes. I’ve always wanted a pair, but never got around to buying a pair. Finally, I did! They are a great alternative to flats and booties, and they go with a variety of different outfits, which makes them extremely versatile. Plus, they can be dressed up and down, and can be worn to the office and to more casual outings and events as well. I will include the pair of oxford lace-up shoes that I bought at SoftMoc in point #1 and #3 in this post. The best part is that I accumulated enough “dollars” on my account there that I only paid $20 for them! Now, let’s look at the the 3 ways to wear oxford shoes.
There are so many things that I love about this butterfly top. It has the versatility to take you from the office to casual nights out. You can even dress it up with skinny black jeans and black pumps, which is what I desperately need in my shoe collection! Since this butterfly top is cut in a baby doll style, you need a belt to create some shape and define your waist. Waist belts are something every woman needs in her wardrobe! This look that I have created here is perfect for the office, as well as dinner out after hours.
What is one wardrobe staple that you can’t live without?
Without a doubt, my wardrobe staple would have to be the little black dress. As you may already know, I have numerous versions of the little black dress. Because the little black dress is extremely versatile and never goes out of style, I wouldn’t be able to live without it. A basic black dress can be dressed up and down, worn out for drinks, to the office, on weekends, or just about anywhere. You can also easily change up the look with accessories such as statement necklaces, handbags and scarves. It’s a definite go-to when I simply can’t figure out what else to wear. A black dress also looks great with blazers, leather-look jackets and denim jackets as well.
In the spirit of the back-to-school season, I’ve decided to write a post about leather backpacks. Why leather, in particular, you may be asking? Leather is the most durable and will last the longest. It’s also the best option if you want to get more bang for your buck, have a busy lifestyle or have a ton of heavy textbooks to carry. Additionally, leather backpacks are chic, stylish, and will never go out of style. They are suitable for students, professionals, or simply for a busy woman on-the-go.
Would you wear tights with peep toe shoes?
In preparation for fall, I’ve been thinking about what types of spring/summer shoes that I can wear during the new season. So, I have been doing some research on the opinions that fashionistas and fashion gurus had about this topic. But I found out that the views were mixed. Some said that you can wear tights with peep toe shoes as long as the toes aren’t reinforced. Others said that you should never wear them together – it’s a fashion don’t. But, what do I think? Although, I have never worn tights with peep toe shoes, this summer season I purchased a pair and I was wondering if I could pull it off. I think I would try wearing black opaque tights (sheer would look too weird) with my black peep toe shoes. Or, I could see how grey or red tights would look. I am thinking that the contrast would be eye-catching.
I can’t believe it’s already fall again! We’ve had a very wet summer with a lot of rainy and cloudy days here in Edmonton, so it’s going to a bit more difficult to welcome fall. But, as you know, the best part about fall are the clothes. I love the layers, colours, boots, shoes, and scarves. So, this season I have decided to make a wish list about the fall items from SheIn.
