Haul | Shoe Edition

Fun fact: I’m not a shoe person. I’ve never been the girl who’s dying to go shoe shopping. On the contrary, shoe shopping is actually pretty stressful and overwhelming for me because I tend to overthink, much like I do in my everyday life. It sounds ridiculous, but it’s a pretty stressful experience because when I see a pair of shoes I like, it takes me forever to buy them. I always think about the price, the quality, how comfortable they are, how much I really like them, how long they’ll last, and if I will realistically wear them enough to justify the purchase. Because I hardly buy shoes, most of mine are too small so I’m in the process of replacing them.

Floral Canvas Lace-Up Boots from  Charlotte Russe
Victoria Lace Up Bootie from O’Shoes

I was looking for classic styles, but a few “trendy” shoes caught my eye instead. The floral lace boots aren’t my typical style but I like them. Sometimes fashion can be so odd that it circles back around to being cute. That’s what floral combat boots are to me. I feel like if they’re styled with a very minimalist approach, the boots can really pop in a subtle way. I like a challenge, so we’ll see how I wear them in a future outfit post. The black boots are a similar style to Jeffrey Campbell Litas, but for a much cheaper price. I plan to wear them with super dark denim and an oversized cozy knit sweater once Fall rolls around. I also purchased nude boots with a thin heel from JustFab, but I haven’t received them yet so they aren’t pictured. I’m actually not even sure I’ll get them because the website had my old apartment number, so cross your fingers!

It’s pretty clear from this post that boots are my favorite shoes, what’s your go-to shoe style?

      Thanks! The floral are a bit different, but I’m excited to style them and make it work

    Omg! I love both of those. I thought last year when I found my patent leather combat boots that they were the best shoe ever! That floral boot has totally changed my mind!

      Same! I wasn’t super into them at first, but overnight floral boots started to catch my eye. I love how unique they are.
