This is a little delayed, seeing how we’re already halfway into January, but Style Darling (still under construction) has returned to the blogosphere nonetheless. I’m gonna do my best to open up some style inspiration here with some shoe talk- can’t get any better than that! Just because it’s a new year, it doesn’t mean that I’ll be any less careful about spending, so buying on a budget is, of course, central to these selections. The first pick of the new year, as it should be for all of winter is something with texture. Gravitating toward some suede, wool, velvet, croc, canvas (& so on) will adds loads of extra detail to your outfit & take place of a pattern, while complimenting bolder colors that you may be wearing like red or tangerine. Neutrals like gray, brown, black, & navy will look all the more richer & expensive in textures, as well as less basic- especially if you wearing two textures in one item. Thus, bringing us into the shoe talk. Investing in pieces that are both versatile and timeless will make the most of your wardrobe in an effortless way!
These ‘In The Mix’ peep toe pumps from Payless by Fioni are in a dark gray soft felt (also available in navy) for a tailored wool look. The black patent leather lining around the ruffle adds visual interest and just enough detail for your footwear to look so much more luxurious than their $26.99 pricetag. Check out these other textured shoes that will instantly punch up any office or casual look.
