With spring cleaning in full swing, I wanted to document my spring capsule shoe collection.
It makes me more aware of what I have and what I do not need.
For the past several years, I’ve been streamlining my closet to the point where I’m content with what I have. I don’t go to the mall as often since I want to spend my time on more meaningful experiences.
Still, that doesn’t mean I don’t buy things at all. In fact, my first shoe purchase this year are these mesh black flats from Saks Fifth Avenue this past weekend.
I absolutely live in flats and my leopard loafers look horrendous. I’ve had them for four months and they are completely falling apart and no longer supportive! Tragic, no?
I strongly dislike it when shoes don’t last more than a year because I skimped on quality for price. I thought I was buying quality, but who am I kidding? I picked the leopard loafers because I thought them pretty, not really checking for their durability. This time, I checked the quality and it’s a step up from the loafers. So, I bought them and walked out the door with them on my feet. $50 well spent.
Anyways, here’s my spring and summer shoe collection. 10 pairs of shoes including my new flats.
Black pump || Brown pump || Brown brogue || Beige sandal || Beige wedge || Black wedge || Brown sandal || Gold sandal || Leopard print loafer
I’m not very creative when it comes to shoes, I much prefer neutrals that go with everything. Black, brown, beige…it’s what works for me. I tried to go bold with leopard print loafers and though I love the shoe, it didn’t last long. I’ll probably wear them for a few more weeks and it will be time to retire them.
My shoe collection has a little bit of everything to suit my lifestyle needs. I didn’t include athletic shoes since I don’t pair them with an outfit, I just wear them when I’m working out or going on a hike. I could pare down more so I’m using this season to see which shoes I wear the most and which I don’t wear at all. If I could get down to 10 shoes for my entire shoe collection, that would be amazing, but I guess I’ll find out what I need in a few months.
What do you have in your shoe collection?
