Shoes. One of my personal favorites. Here's my thought in one simple sentence: Shoes make or break an outfit. No I did not come up with that, but that doesn't make it any less true! I could leave it at that, but lucky for you, I will expound.
There is nothing worse than an almost amazing outfit. Why almost you ask? Because of the shoes. Let me give an example.

Both of these women have cute dresses on and then it all goes downhill from there. I'd also like to take the opportunity to say how much I absolutely hate Uggs - or any off brand boot that looks somewhat like them. They are ok for snow activities, such as sledding, and it pretty much ends there. They aren't flattering AT ALL. The only thing they do is ruin outfits world wide. :) If you want to wear boots, you don't have to wear something super uncomfortable, but you CAN wear something like this:
They look much better, but still keep you warm! This goes with all shoes. If you are daring enough to wear heels, then that is awesome! I love heels, but I do understand that they aren't the best thing to wear everywhere, especially if you have to walk a lot or stand all day. There are plenty of cute shoes though that are also cute and fashionable. Try ballet flats instead of tennis shoes. You will look great, and if you get the right flats, they will keep your feet comfy all day.

Guys- this goes for you too. There are plenty of options out there for guys to wear that aren't tennis shoes- or at least ugly tennis shoes. :) Any of these are good options to wear with jeans. So look nice, why don't you?


  1. Dear GraceyFin,

    can I wear swootipers to my job interview tomorrow?

  2. Can I mention how much you would like Armenia? , You will be amazed as you look at a group of people who live in poverty and dirt and manage to have the most beautiful shoes. For cheap! Granted, it would cost you a small fortune to get there. . .
