Particularly Pleasant Printed Pumps

While our choice of footwear is usually an after-thought to the main event, our outfit, fashionistas everywhere are rethinking this age-old procedure of getting ready thanks to printed pumps.  These pumps are quickly becoming the spotlight of the entire ensemble due to the crazy prints and patterns they come in, as well as a plethora of colors.  So what about the rest of the outfit?  Keep it fairly simple or mix prints!  Just remember, next time you go to build your outfit for the day, start from the bottom up!

The Essentials : Now & Forever

While styles may come and go and we all look back on certain trends that we probably never want to revisit again, there ARE, however certain things that must really always be in your closet.  At all times.  For every and any occasion or outfit.  These are the old-faithfuls that have treated us well over years of fashion.  Here they are, along with some of my favorites in each category.

Black Ankle Boots – paired with jeans, skirts, dresses – you name it! The perfect go-to shoe to dress up or down.

Statement Necklace – Need to glam-up an outfit?  Look no further than the statement necklace!  It pulls together any outfit and can turn a plain tee and jeans outfit into a great night-out look.

Flats – These can be switched out with the first “must-have” and can be worn with almost everything.  Flats are great everyday shoes that you can just slip on and be off!  Plus, the colors and prints that you can choose to work them into an outfit are limitless – just look at the ones below!
