Some people say that all you need is love. I say that all you need is a pair (or twenty) of new shoes – practically the same thing, right?
A few years ago, I could care less about what shoes I wore (if you’re asking yourself what was wrong with me, I don’t know the answer but I was truly deranged). I spent all my shopping funds on new tee’s & dresses, which are good things to buy, but I totally disregarded my feet.
If you really think about it, your feet go through a lot. They step on questionable grounds, are wounded with blisters, and are constantly moving to get you where you want to go. You only have two little feet to get you through life, so you might as well thank them with lots of beautiful shoes (and pedi’s – but that’s a discussion for another blog).
Over the past few months, I have been LOVING three shoe trends: the gladiator style, lace-up sandals, and chunky heels. Although shoes focusing on any one of these styles individually are to-die-for, shoes that are a combination of the three are reaching perfection.
So, I’m sure you can only imagine the amount of excitement I was feeling when I found these Stephanie Heels from Laura’s Boutique. Not only do they come in four colors (olive green being my personal favorite), but they are are so affordable! The less the shoes cost, the more you can buy – that’s my motto.
Another great thing about the gladiator/lace-up/chunky-heeled style is its versatility. I can wear these shoes with ripped shorts and an off the shoulder tee (as pictured) for a more casual look, OR, I could wear them with some killer black, high waisted pants and a tight black tank for a hot date/night on the town (OW-OWWW).
When you look great, you feel great. So go, get out there and invest in some gladiator/lace-up/chunky-heeled shoes – I promise you won’t regret it. And remember, shoe love is true love.
XOXO, Maddie Perry
