Hello hello! Happy Monday to you guys! I wanted to share with y’all my “Spring Shoe Capsule”, because lately I’ve decided to be more intentional about my clothing and shoe purchases. I have this terrible habit of shopping for a specific occasion with no regard for whether or not I’ll re wear the item OR I impulse buy when I see something pretty. Then, I end up with tons of shoes or clothing items that I hardly ever reuse which is just a total waste! So – because of this decision to shop more intentionally – I have started to curate a Spring Shoe Capsule that will serve me for work + play all throughout the spring and honestly even into the summer.
Birkenstock Style Sandals – this is a shoe that is a staple for me. I always have some style of knock off Birkenstock sandal for casual days so that I can easily slip them on and go. I’m not a flip flop kinda gal – and these slide sandals are the perfect substitute without leaving you looking so not put together like you can tend to look like in flip flops. 😉
Leopard Slip On Sneakers – again, this is another staple in my closet and really it’s not exclusive to Spring time. I wear my leopard slip on sneakers all year round BUT it was time to replace the ones I bought last year which meant this new purchase ended up falling under my Spring Shoe Capsule.
Slide Sandals (work and weekend appropriate) – these sandals are Free People dupes and I’m smitten. I think that they are casual enough to go great with jeans and a t-shirt but they will also look good with a more “dressed” up business casual look. I got them in black and gold so that I can match them with any outfit.
Heeled Sandals for “Casual/Dressy” occasions – these sandals are going to be perfect for nights out with my best girls or for a date night with my boo. I think that they could even be comfortable enough to wear all day at work if I felt the need to wear heels one day. 😉
Heeled Sandal for Dressy Occasions – sooo yes, another shoe in leopard. But listen, leopard is the perfect neutral and I can’t think of much in my closet that wouldn’t get great with leopard print shoes. I think that these will be perfect for dressier date nights or dressier girls’ nights out!
And that’s it! I can’t promise that I won’t buy any more shoes BUT I can’t really imagine why I’d need to! How do you guys shop for shoes and clothing? Do you do it on a whim or do you seek out specific items?
