Please don’t let shoes stop you from wearing skirts! I hear a lot of ladies say they don’t wear skirts because they don’t know what shoes to wear. Let me tell you something…
Growing up we were not stylish with shoes. We wore what we had to wear with our skirts. I went through a a few years as a teenager where my feet hurt all the time. I was fitted for special orthotics, and could only wear tennis shoes with them. So during the week I wore regular Nike or Reebok tennis shoes with my skirts or dresses. Did it look cute?
Not at all!
Did it make me stop wearing dresses?
If you have a conviction, and want to dress a certain way, just do it. Don’t let something like shoes get in the way!
That being said, there are good quality shoes that you can wear that look better then then a standard tennis shoe! If you have feet problems, you might not have a closet full of shoes, but if you invest in just a few good pairs they should last you awhile.
These look like comfortable, basic walking shoes, and they are worn with a maxi dress!
A vintage dress with blue Keds! She looks lovely.
These flats from Payless are super affordable, but have really good reviews!
I’ve heard good things about these Bongo flats from Sears. They are not expensive, and the reviews say they are really comfortable. I would wear these everyday or to church.
These are so feminine looking!
I wear Mary Jane shoes quite often. You can look through many different styles of Mary Jane shoes on Kohls.
A lovely outfit with flats.
While spending money on good quality shoes can be an investment, think through how much you are on your feet. Some ladies can get by with cheaper shoes, others have to purchase higher quality shoes. Other good quality brands are Merrell, Keen, Born, and Toms.
Do you want to see what is on my wish list?
I really want to try a pair of TOMS crocheted shoes! They are so cute.
Winter is coming up on us and it does change the shoes we wear (unless you live in Florida and don’t get snow!). If we don’t have snow outside I will still wear Mary Jane style shoes with thicker socks, but I wear a lot of boots in the winter time. The next post will be about skirts and boots, so stay tuned!
I’d love to hear what your favorite everyday shoes are!
