Start with the shoes…

So when you start your day, how do you go about coordinating your wardrobe? Do you have a shirt in mind that drives the entire ensemble or perhaps some accessories lined up? Well, I usually start with the shoes…

The shoes are a critical fashion element as they are a focal point. Everybody notes awesome shoes.

So am I feeling fun or sexy? I’ll start with the heels. What’s the weather? If it’s cold, then those heels take the form of boots. If I’m leaning more toward sensual, I may wear boots that travel over the knee. What if the weather’s hot? High strappy sandals win.

If I’m feeling casual, what type of casual is this? Am I going to be walking far? Then a cute pair of sneakers will do the trick. A standard out and about day might dictate ballet flats or sandals. Combat boots are great for winter.

And don’t get me started on the importance of color. Or heel shape…Do I want a narrow heel, block heel, or wedge?

Once I have the shoes, I build the ensemble from there. Wait a minute…Which handbag?


Stay groovy…
