Style Shopper: Boots, Sandals and Heels, Oh My!

I am loving the offerings from Sole Society as of late.


There is nothing more casual but chic than an ankle boot.

To be honest, I was not on the bandwagon for a long time but then out of the blue I realized that they were a preferred alternative to actual shoes that cut off at the ankles.

I can’t wear actual SHOES because I find it kind of awkward to wear with skinny jeans and leggings (my preferred pants option).

After I discovered how nice an ankle boot could look tucked into boots, I was a goner.

Here are my picks.

As you can tell, I love the neutral coloured flat boot, with a little heel, and possibly a wrap detail somewhere. I think it is more versatile than a really chunky, rugged moto boot or a very sleek leather option. It is both dressy but casual.


I like heels, but I know most people can’t wear high heels (3.5″) and feel comfortable. I like the pitch of a 3.5″ heel but here are some lower heeled shoes in fun patterns I’d love to wear .. in a higher heel.


I’m starting to get into things like loafers, smoking slippers, or low wedges because it is a nice alternative to ballerina flats.

Here are some of my favourites!


This last one has nothing to do with shoes. I just really like armoured rings and statement rings, so I had to throw it in here.

    I need dressy shoes that are really comfortable, as in I have to be on my feet for 12 plus hours and walk miles (not an exaggeration) in them when I am at a convention or trade show and going to events. Any suggestions?



      1. Find the sloped sole pitch that works for your foot. Too long of a sole and your foot will feel uncomfortable and loose. Too short, and it will be squished toes.

      2. Find the heel height that works. Stand on your tippy toes and go all the way to the top. 1″ below THAT height, is a comfortable heel height. I can wear up to 4.5″ for instance when I go on my tiptoes, but I prefer 3.5″ for long periods of time. Anything shorter and it is not comfy.

      Brands I like: Manolo Blahnik (thrifted, as they’re $600 – $1000 a pop), and I recently discovered Club Monaco April heels, which were 3.5″, padded and VERY comfy. I also think Ivanka Trump makes a good heel but have not tried them yet.
