Shoes That Are Comfortable AND Stylish

As of late, I’ve had multiple clients searching for fall shoes and boots. And while these women care about style, fashion, and how they look (I mean, obviously, they hired a stylist). They also equally care about comfort. Done are the days of shoes that feel like knives in your feet. Or backaches from wearing too high a heel or a shoe with minimal support.

However, these clients do not want to settle for orthopedic-looking shoes or defaulting to running shoes with every outfit. And while it might seem that comfort and looks can’t co-exist in the footwear category – I’m here to let you know they can and they do! I’ve searched high and low to find the best looking fall comfort shoes and boots for you!

And surprise, I found a lot! From tried and true comfort brands that have (finally) married comfort technology with fashion sense. And from brands that I’ve personally tried or had a client try so I have direct feedback. Now, that all being said, footwear comfort is VERY personal. One person’s most comfortable pair can feel torturous to another person. So consider this your guide – they all have my stamp of approval in the looks department – and sometimes you’ve got to try on quite a few pairs to find the one that fits.

Sale. Sales. Sales.

There are a gazillion fabulous sales going on right now and specifically, the Shopbop sale is just beginning. It’s a great way to save money. Quite a bit in fact, because many of the sales are a buy more, save more concept. However, it can be overwhelming as well. Too many choices can be paralyzing. Sometimes less is more… So let me help narrow it down for you… And offer a few tips on how to best shop online sales.

How to Shop On-Line Sales:

READ THE FINE PRINT! Make sure to see when the sale ends. And the return policy.
SKIP IT IF IT’S FINAL SALE. Unless you’ve tried the item and know your size, without a doubt. If not, it’ll be yours, like it or not.
KEEP A FAVORITES FOLDER. Most stores allow you to “heart” or “favorite” an item. That way you can keep an eye on it and grab it when it goes on sale.
ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS BEFORE HITTING PURCHASE. Would you buy it for full price? Can you think of 3 ways to wear it with items you already have? When you walk away from the computer, can you not stop thinking about it?  If you answer yes, then ADD TO CART!
BUY A FEW SIZES AND RETURN WHAT DOESN’T FIT.  Items go fast during a sale. As long as things are returnable, I recommend getting a few sizes (if you’re unsure of the fit) and returning those that didn’t work. If you wait to exchange, chances are it might be sold out.
It’s All About the Timing

Spring Wardrobe Refresh – Add Lavender and Yellow

Last week we talked about giving your wardrobe a refresh this spring, without spending a boat load of money.  (Here it is just in case you missed it.) Another easy way to refresh this spring, and make things feel updated is by adding a few key colors. Even if you’re a tried and true neutrals fan, meaning most of your closet is black, white, grey, and tan, adding some pops of color can be fun, and make you feel all springy and stuff. Spring is typically about bright florals which give that “spring is here” feel, and this season is no different – in fact,  the floral dresses available are abundant and fabulous. Hallie loves, this one,  this one and this one too. But, this season, in addition to florals, we’re gravitating towards a few particular colors, and so are the fashion gods. So we are listening…

There are two colors we recommend adding to freshen up your wardrobe this season.  Yellow and Lavender. Adding either color is an easy update whether you choose to add it as an accessory, a dress or as a whole suit.  Both colors are very cool, brighten up a day (and a complexion) and are available in stores right now! 

Mellow Yellow and Lovely Lavender-THE colors to add.

Since you don’t want to walk out of the house looking like rainbow bright, it’s good to know that, both yellow and lavender play nicely with your tried and true neutrals. They’ll both pair back to just about anything you already own making it really easy to update without investing a lot. Initially, you might think we’re crazy and that these colors are hard to mix in, but on the contrary. They are ultra easy to incorporate…

A TWC Tip

Hey, and a little TWC tip…IF you think you can’t wear yellow, you’re WRONG! Here’s how…
