I really love how a great pair of shoes can change a look in an instant. I have some shoes that I have had forever, (and care for like they are my children!), while others can be a trend or fad that I try for a season and then give away. Something that I’m finding about my tastes in shoes and what appeals to me long term, is that they tend to be fairly basic, are a neutral color, and are easy to wear with everything. These peep toe wedge booties from DSW completely fit this equation for me. They have that edge, that something that makes you feel cool and different, yet they are completely wearable. I wanted to style them three different ways, because reality is that I wear times multiple items in multiple ways, and I like to find ways to make it work in my life. You in? Let’s go!
Here are THREE WAYS to wear ONE pair of (amazing!) peep toe wedge boots:
When I think of these boots, I immediately think COOL. Pairing them with a moto jacket, coated denim, and a flirty plaid slip dress epitomizes that notion for me. This is what I typically choose to wear on a night out with my kids and husband, or with my friends for a girls night. At this point of my life I like a darker look, with black nails, ear cuffs, and spiked rings as a centerpiece. I really adore how these wedge boots add to this vibe perfectly, and really fit into the vision of how I want to dress right now.
I wore this dress to my tenth anniversary dinner a couple of weeks ago, and now I see these boots with it and wish I had had them that night! I have a soft spot for a great black dress moment, it is my fail safe and go to. Yet when you go this route for an evening out you HAVE TO add in fun and unique accessories to make it shine. While I love a pop of color, or a simple and elegant strappy sandal, these peep toe booties seem more unexpected, and that is what I strive for when I get dressed most of the time.
This is a fairly casual look for me, I wore it the other day to volunteer at my daughter’s school, and then to grocery store after. My favorite part? It took me under ten minutes to throw it all on and get out the door (which is generally the time I have!) AND, I was surprisingly comfortable! My first thought when I’m getting dressed and I have a busy day is to wear a flatter shoe, but the wedge on these booties makes them super easy to walk in, and not uncomfortable AT ALL. And trust me, I’m not willing to be NOT comfortable, it makes me cranky and irritable;)
Not that long ago I completely went through my shoe collection and ruthlessly got rid of everything I don’t wear anymore. What was I left with? A smaller collection of shoes, boots, and heels that are truly me. These peep toe booties are something that feels like ME completely. They have that fun factor I look for, yet they go with just about everything I own. They seamlessly fit into my life and my reality, and I love that.
Plus, they are just so darn AWESOME. That’s a win/win in my book;)
Tell me, how would YOU style these peep toe booties from DSW?
