FAB MAMA STYLE – SHOE EDITION

CLICK ON ITEMS TO SHOP

The other day, I was talking to a friend who was asking me for fashion advice, and she said: “I only wear jeans and sneakers since having my kids”. But now she found herself in a situation where she had to look more put together and, after years of not really caring or worrying about outfits, she was stuck. In order to help you get to that point and show you that you can still look stylish after being a mom, I created the hashtag #FabMamaStyle on Instagram, where I invited other moms to share their looks so we can all get inspiration for one another.

Today, I wanted to dedicated this post to great shoes that are stylish and they are also mama-friendly! While you definitely do not need to be a mom to love any of these styles, all of them are great, affordable, and comfy enough to fit with your mama routine.

The items that I find myself gravitating towards since having Lennox because, believe it or not, I have reduced significantly the amount of time I wear heels, are:

Wedges: I have always loved wedges but now more than ever. They are the comfy heel. They can add the height, the elongation of the leg but they are definitely comfier than regular heels.

Fashion Sneakers: For the last few months, I have been obsessed with the fashion sneaker trend. I am the kind of gal that only wears sneakers to work out, but I have totally fallen for this trend because comfort is definitely key while running around town with a little one in tow.

Flats: well, these ones are quite self-explanatory. What I like to do if I am wearing flats (which immediately makes you look more casual) is to find some with great details, like the ones above.

Block heel sandals: these are great for when you want heels but you are still not willing to sacrifice comfort. There are tons of style of thick heel sandals available this season and I believe that this trend is here to stay for a while.

As always, I hope that you found some great ideas! Thanks for stopping by!

10 MUST-HAVE SHOES EVERY WOMAN NEEDS THIS SEASON

CLICK ON ITEM TO SHOP

One of the biggest challenges I face when styling my clients with pieces that they already have is finding out that they do not have the basics. So, quiet often, we find ourselves running around trying to find pieces that are missing to put the look together. In order to prevent this from keep happening, I created a guide for my clients of basic shoes for the spring/summer season that go with everything. Versatility is a must when it comes to shopping and not breaking the bank. To have ALL you need to be able to put a look together beautifully, you need a pair of pumps and sandals in BLACK, NUDE, RED, SILVER and GOLD.

Needless to say, a nice pair of black pumps is absolutely necessary and you’ll use it very much. Buy a nice pair, like the one above. Similarly, a pair of black strap sandals is super versatile and can be used to dress up or to give a little edge to a more casual look including distressed jeans or shorts.

Metallic shoes are a basic in my book because, often times, they can be used as a neutral and also add enough of a color that can also be used to complement multiple colors. I am in love with the gold pumps, and they are only $30!! I also love the detail on the gold sandals. These are a little pricier than what I normally recommend ($60) but they can be worn so often and they are very nicely made, so they are worth the little investment. The silver pumps are so fabulous and only $15!!! Need I say more? My favorite color to mix silver shoes with is navy and royal blue. Try it if you have not yet! The silver strap sandal is only $30 and it is another super versatile shoe. Dress it up or down and you will definitely stand out thanks to the very cute design.

Let’s talk about nude shoes. I am always SHOCKED to go into a closet and not find a good pair of nude pumps. If you don’t own a pair, you need to change that ASAP! These is the color that will save you every-single-time! Because of that, I also chose a pair that it’s not super cheap (they are only $44, though!), because you will wear them non-stop once you start playing with them. I own so many shoes from this brand, so buy without hesitation. They are wonderful!

I want to close with red because 1. they are super trendy right now and, 2. they make any outfit look immediately fabulous. I love wearing red pumps with skinny jeans and the pair I found you may need to find its way to my closet very very soon! The red sandals I included are not so basic, but I decided that they needed to make the list because they are all the rage right now and only $30!!

I hope that you found many wonderful ideas to up your shoe game. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Weekend!
