If The Shoe Fits...

I love clothes, purses and accessories but my biggest style obsession/weakness/most$$spent is shoes! It drives my husband crazy but I just can't control it. So let me share a little bit of my obsession with you :)

My Top 5 "Must Have" Shoes:

"Classic Black Pumps"
My favorite black pumps and the perfect work shoe is the Ramona,  black patent pumps from Sofft. They are very cute and provide ultra comfort!! I have bought two pairs over the past two years since I wear them so often!
"Red Carpet Affair"It's always good to have a good "formal" shoe that you can go to at a last minute notice. Something you can wear to a wedding, banquet, formal shower, etc. I tend to wear a lot of pinks, blues and blacks so these Cassidy Peep-Toe Pumps in silver by Antonio Melani are a perfect shoe for me. I call it my "Cinderella Shoe", originally purchased them for my wedding rehearsal but have worn them so much since!
"Nude Pumps"
Nude shoes are a huge trend this season and I completely understand why. You can wear them with practically anything and whether you are supposed to or not, I wear mine year round! These leather platform pumps from Miu Miu are just perfect!

"Sandals with Bling"
This summer I indulged in the Set In Stone sandal by Lilly Pulitzer. I wear them so often, for so many different occasions, how did I ever do without them before! The sandals are not only comfortable and beautiful but our extremely versatile. I wear them to work on casual Fridays, with shorts, casual dresses, to baseball games and dinner dates. I really can't get enough of them! 
"Ballet Flats"For those of you who know me, you are probably shocked to see that this has made my "Top 5".  I never wear  ballet flats . That is until I discovered these Air Reesa Buckle Ballet flats by Cole Haan. I don't usually wear this type because a) I'm already so short and b) I have a high arch so I don't find them very comfortable. However, Cole Haan has a line of shoes with "Nike Air" technology to ensure comfort and support. It is the only ballet flat I wear and I love it! You can also get it in so many cute colors. 

And now for my top two "dream" shoes that I will own one day.... They are so beautiful they don't even need descriptions.
The "pink champagne" of shoes by Christian Louboutin
Rolando Python Pump in light turquoise by Christian Louboutin

Do you have a pair of shoes you can't go without?? Please share with me and my followers!!

Shoes are my addiction too!!! I have a great pair of black steve madden stacked heels (which I just bought a couple of months ago). Love them and I have a high arch too!! I wear flats only because I am too tall in heels around my 7th grade students :)

Thanks for following my blog! I'm glad you're a fellow shoe lover, because I adore them! These are gorgeous. What I wouldn't give for a pocket book to afford Louboutins...

I love those ballet flats! I've been wanting a pair for awhile so I can still look dressed up without wearing heels. I love heels but sometimes feel too tall in them. The flats here are so pretty!

And I need to get a pair of nude pumps. I have a pair of "champagne" colored strappy heels, but they aren't as versitile as I would like.
