I’ll be honest, I’ve been breaking my own everyday style rules lately. Last edition of Everyday Style, I preached about just changing out of your pajamas to up your daily style factor. I have so been breaking this rule lately, but I’m blaming it on the snow and freezing temps that have kept us somewhat homebound. Whatever my excuse, I’m back to keeping my own commandments because I did not feel good or like myself on the days when I went makeup-less, un-showered and bra-less until 3 pm. I get that it happens to the best of us, but I sure don’t prefer it!

This week’s tip is all about shoes. Buy cute shoes that you can wear every day. Choose shoes that have a low heel and are comfortable and stylish but still practical! There are PLENTY of cute shoes out there that fit this description. They don’t all have to be sneakers (although a cute pair of those will go a long way), but don’t spend much money on 5-inch heels, no matter how gorgeous they are! I have found as a mom, heck even in high school, as a college student, or pre-motherhood, I need fabulous shoes that work every day with all of my clothes. I will not wear running shoes daily and I almost never get to wear heels. Who does get to wear heels every day? I read a lot of fashion blogs and the main complaint I have is their shoe choice. I love beautiful shoes with a high heel or wedge, but if they are not workable on two or more days of my week, I almost never buy them!
Some of my favorites are Converse, TOMS, ballet flats, low heel or flat ankle boots, tall boots with a low heel and moccasins. I know some people love rain boots as well, but I don’t love them for everyday wear on me. In the spring and summer, I love to wear wedge or platform sandals, but they have to feel more like a shoe than a high heel. Otherwise I only real heels for dates or church.
What is your go-to shoe? Have I missed any great ones?
