Neutral Shoes -- The Haul

Hello everyone! One fashion principle that I've learned over the years is to have neutral bottoms and then jazz them up with colorful tops, scarves, statement necklaces, etc. This concept applies to shoes as well. In fact matching up the pant and shoe color is tres chic. Taking that a step further, matching up the shoe, hose color and skirt is a great look as well. So, two weeks ago the neutral shoe gods were smiling down upon me as I acquired a few SEVERAL pairs of neutral shoes. Feast your eyes....

black ankle strap espradilles, Walmart, $10
Going to wear these in England this June for tea at Fortnum & Mason's

Beige, ankle-strap, Seycelles-like wedges, Old Navy, $20

Black, Seychelles-like wedge, ankle-strap sandals, Old Navy, $20

Spring, beige ankle boot, Old Navy, $20

Snakeskin cut-away flats, Old Navy, $20
For these last four at Old Navy I employed a new strategy of mine which definitely saves time. I go on the store website and zero in on some items I really like, then when I go in the store it's less overwhelming. I can zoom right to the items I came looking for, try them on and be in and out in 30 minutes. Remember, for us busy women it's gotta be fast, frugal and fashionable. I've had compliments on all the shoes in this bunch I've worn so far. I tell ya, you can't beat the price either. Similar wedge sandals seen on the latest post on Kendi Everyday go for $86. These were less than one fourth that price!!! So, here's to frugal, fashionable neutral shoes for the Spring and Summer. Happy outfit creating!

  1. I have lots of neutral shoes, but I am guilty of having lots of colored shoes too. I really like the look of colored shoes, I think they're fun. They may not work for everyone, but I wear my colored shoes A LOT! :) Great post Val!
