Shoe Game

Over the years I have become somewhat of a minimalist.  It is refreshing not to have a million things to chose from when you know you only wear about 50% of why not just do away with the excess and only keep what you need!  Trust me you will feel light and free just by donating all of the wardrobe and shoes that you do not wear.  I do this every so often and it feels fantastic!  

Here are my 5 footwear must-haves
(wardrobe must-haves coming soon):

1.  Boots(two pairs of favorite neutral colors)- 
Dressy-can be paired with dresses, skirts, or under jeans.  For this pair I’d prefer black because it compliments the majority of my wardrobe.
Mid-calf to knee length
Mid-high heel

Casual-can also be paired with jeans or skirts.  Mostly for your non-formal environments. For this pair I would choose a dark brown, gray, or tan.
Ankle to mid-calf length
Low-mid heel

2.  Flats(two pairs in your favorite metallic color)
Ballet flats-I would personally like bronze the best because would match everything
Sandals- This is where gold or silver would be the best.  Love jeweled embellishments on sandals so much!

3.  Sneakers(two pairs)
Flat- stylish, casual, and comfortable.  A converse style would be perfect. 
Running shoes- for exercise.  One of my old favorites was the Nike Airmax.  There are so many to choose from!  Take your favorite pick!

4.  Heels(three pairs)
Black, medium heel, conservative style perfect for work or formal occasions.
Nude, medium to high heel.  Any style that fits your personality.
Strappy/Dressy/high heel sandals.  Any color.  Think about your clothes and accessories and choose a pair that will compliment them the best.  It’s always the worst to have a fabulous pair of shoes waiting to be worn but nothing to go with them!  So choose wisely!

5.  Last but not least a wild card!  A pair of heels that have a wow factor that you can wear to make any of your favorite outfits pop!  Of course, you know I chose heels because I love them but pick anything that makes you feel amazing and confident!

By only keeping what you own to a minimum you have done yourself a favor and still have what you need to keep your style on point!
