Hottest Shoes for Fall
Nothing makes me more happy than a gorgeous and oh-so-fabulous pair of shoes!
“Give a girl the correct footwear and she can conquer the world.”
I believe that, I really do. Our feet are the root of our body, they are our foundation... you might as well dress them up, right?
It's funny, I bought each of my sons (all four of them) 2 pairs of shoes for Back-to-School... that's 8 pairs of shoes. Everyone got new sneakers and then everyone got boots or Crocs. I didn't flinch for a second buying them shoes because I knew they needed them for Fall. I went on the practical and sensible side, and - of course - made sure they looked "cool."
But for myself?
Actually, as a mom... I absolutely look for practical and sensible shoes, but I want them to be crazy cool... not just a little cool. ;) They need to be "bananas" cool. As a working mom, I need to make sure I'm fully ready to pair shoes with skirts and dresses for the out-of-the-house work days AND find shoes for the I'm-working-from-home (with the kids) and picking them up at school and dropping them off at swimming days. In other words, I need to be ready for anything and with the right shoes. I want comfort, great fit and ultra fabulousness... and truthfully, I found some.
Here are my top 5 picks for the Hottest Shoes for Fall (for us mamas!):
1. Platform Loafer...
Let me just say that these babies bring me back to 1994 when I had about 3 pairs because of the movie Clueless! I love seeing a classic loafer with a sexy heel twist. These can easily be worn to work with skirts and dresses and suits. I just think it's fabulous that you can get the perfect mix of business appropriate and crazy-cool style.
2. GRAY BOOTS...
I just bought my very first pair of gray boots and I LOVE them! I cannot wait to rock these babies out. In a boot world where usually brown and black boots rule, it's refreshing to see another color and taste of boot. This is why I love gray for the Fall... just think how fabulous a pair of gray boots will look with a monochromatic black outfit. It absolutely adds a different punch. It's also very cool to see that gray boots ARE just as versatile as black or brown are! Go bold with some gray boots this Fall, mamas!
3. Wedge Pumps...
Every woman needs a pair of black pumps, hands down. Actually... every woman needs a pair of many pumps in her closet. So... are you ready for a crazy cool pump style for the Fall? Wedges! Last Fall/Winter it was all about the wedge boots (and it still will be, don't worry!), but this season we're adding in the wedge pump -- and it's fierce! What I love about this look - besides the fact that you're 100% reinforced here -- is that when you need to head out in a Little Black Dress and you're looking to "dress it up" a bit, by just wearing these pumps, you'll be good to go! I love that the shoes within themselves are the statement piece. Definitely worth the investment!
4. Fringe boots...
Everyone keeps asking me about what kind of boots will be HOT this Fall... well, here's another fabulous added trend -- fringe! I don't own any boots with fringe, but I'm definitely going to add some in this season. This is what I think about the fringe... it's an adorable added accessory to a boot and I think that it can easily be pulled off with jeans/leggings and a casual sweater. The boots standout and that's the way it should be! Plus... if you're a mom of girls -- they'll think you're SUPER cool! :)
5. COWBOY BOOTS (or COWGIRL!)...
HEE-HAW!! Oh, yes MAMAS... grab your cowboy boots! My good friend Lori Falcon is an actual cowboy's wife and she has the style down to a "T!" I've been wanting to get a pair for a couple of years now... and this is the kick in the behind to finally just do it! Personally I think cowboy boots are one of the coolest, most relaxed and most confident kind of boot you can wear! Go BIG! Go BOLD! Ride em' cowgirl!
