Best Foot Forward

by creabain

Fall is absolutely my favorite season – for the weather, the pumpkin flavored lattes and beers, the haunted houses and scary movie marathons, and definitely for the shoes. I’ve been (sub)consciously preparing for fall by picking up some fun new footwear now that my favorite trends are becoming more cost effective. Here’s a snapshot of my favorites, both high and low ends of the price spectrum (and heel height):

METALLIC FLATS

Prada’s metallic flats with a prim bow are clearly out of my price range…but oh so pretty!

Instead, I picked up these loafer style flats from my favorite shop Zara

RAIN BOOTS

They’re clearly a must in the city. I love these wedged boots from Sergio Rossi. You almost wouldn’t guess they were intended for the rain!

For my more budget friendly option, I again turned to my girl Zara and went for these more traditional wellies. I really love the color… maybe because it reminds me of wine?

THE NEW D’ORSAY

One of the most popular trends right now (and definitely my favorite) is the new D’orsay flat. They have a certain modern take on a retro shoe style that is perfect for everyday. Jenni Kayne has some of the most fun and stylish combinations right now, but they come at quite a price

Fortunately for my wallet there was a more affordable pair from Chinese Laundry (plus I had a gift card to Zappos!) and I think they’re just as cute

LACE UP HEELS

On the sexier side are these front lace up heels from Aquazzura that are perfect for going out… and sitting down 😉

Surprise, surprise, I found my pair at Zara. It’s too bad they don’t offer a customer loyalty program because I’d be a platinum member at this point

With so many great options this fall, I’m gonna have to start selling my plasma to keep up! Just kidding… kind of.
