Summer is not yet ended and only the thought of it makes me cringe. I absolutely LOVE summer or at least I think I do. Until last year, summer was the time of freedom. But last year it was my last summer before ‘becoming an adult’. And by that I mean a summer of three full months of holiday. So after I officially became an adult, got my first real contract and started working, my preferences about seasons might have changed a bit. It is not that I don’t like the Sun or the heat anymore, or the long days full of light, but I think that over the past year I learnt how to appreciate the beauty of spring and autumn as well.
Apart from that, as any other fashion lover, the beginning of autumn means also changing how you dress up, new hot stuff in shops and a general refreshment of your mindset amd creativity about your outfits. This is why I am now SO EXCITED about this new season. Also because I have already spotted a few items that I want to add to my wardrobe. But given that there are so many, I divided them into categories. And so this article will be only about the shoes that I want to add to my collection and that are accessible to any budget.
I love how this year is again about long boots. I personally cannot wear them right now because my shins are too thick, but I always dream about them and now that I am on healthier diet and I also started doing some sports, I hope that I will soon be able to wear them too.
I tried so much not to choose more than maximum five pairs that I like, but it was simply impossible. For the past two years, almost three, I wore only flat heeled boots and finally this year I want to go back to heels. Or at least to some higher heel. This is why it was so difficult to choose less than what I selected underneath because I want to get so many pairs!! There are so many textures, patterns, sizes of heels, lengths – but I don’t discriminate, I like them all!
But I think that my favorite favorite favorite of all are these ones and I cannot wait to get my hands on them!
It was a bit easier to choose here because I decided that when it is about high heel shoes, I will only invest in high quality hand made shoes. And I already got a new pair less than a month ago. But I still saw a few that I like and that I definitely want.
Flat shoes & kitten heels
There are also days in which you don’t feel like wearing heels and I totally feel you. I wear flat shoes 85% of the time (but I really want to change this, I used to wear heels everyday and I want it back!). At the moment, I mainly have flat shoes that are casual or sport so I need to stock up on some nice flats. And one of the advantages of living in Florence is that autumn and even winter are not very cold so most days you can easily go for flats. I like a lot the tie-up and straps models that are becoming very popular lately, but also the ones with the short chunky heel.
Now that you have at least 20 pairs suggested by me, which ones are you planning to get?
