I've always loved shoes. My mom loves to tell me my first phrase as a kid was, "New shoes." Creating an outfit around new shoes is so much fun. And I used to think that the more shoes the better. But in recent years I've started to change my tune. I've been working on building a better quality shoe collection. One that is comfortable and long lasting. Now I really try to only buy leather or suede, look for variety in sizes (I sometimes border on wide), and make sure there is enough cushion and support.

I've been fortunate to try out some shoes that I've really found amazing like 4EurSole sandals and booties, JaVie flats, and now Foot Petals flats. So far I've really liked wearing these more comfortable brands and found them to be great compliments to my outfits! They are worth the additional cost because they last so much longer, too. These burgundy flats by Foot Petals are the newest to my closet. I got them through Influenster to try out and I love them so far! I have wanted a pair of burgundy shoes and these are really comfortable. The cushion in them is amazing and really absorbs shock while you are walking throughout the day. I would caution that they run small though. I am typically a 7.5-8 and the 8 is a bit snug, especially at the end of the day when my feet are a bit more swollen.

Do you go for quality or quantity with your shoes?

  4. Laura, you continue to look so cute throughout your pregnancy. I love the burgundy with the white and chambray. A perfect fall combo. I've finally reached the age where I will splurge (for me) on shoes. I haven't reached the age where I'll pay over $200 though. I'm not sure I'll ever be that old...hahaha!

  9. I think it's fabulous that we can finally get both comfort and style in our shoes nowadays!! Because even though I think a great looking shoe can make all the difference in our outfits, I also think it's nice for it to feel good too!!
    These flats sound fabulous. It's nice to have a flat that isn't too flat!!

  16. They are such lovely shoes! I had the hardest time getting shoes to fit while pregnant, ha! I've never been much of a show person so I tend to have just a small but comfortable collection - no time for uncomfortable shoes! :)

    Hope you're having a lovely weekend! We got outside to enjoy the sun a little today which was nice, after a tough day yesterday with an unwell toddler!

  21. Like Lydia said finding comfortable shoes can be a challenge, my most recent find which I swear by are my Dr. Scholl's suede flats - I highly recommend them here: http://shopstyle.it/l/l6dJ
    They are comfortable from the first wear.
