The Essential List Of Shoes

It’s safe to say a majority of women, particularly those of you reading this, appreciate a great shoe! Today I’m sharing 8 types of shoes for woman that should be in her closet. Shoes are fun because, generally speaking, there aren’t as many restrictions in terms of size & fit compared to other clothing items. Pants, for example, come in so many shapes and sizes and fits and colors, which gets complicated. Shoes are so much easier! They can turn a bland look into a polished, fashion forward look. Sometimes though, it can be hard to pick the right shoe.

This post is here to help you out and make sure you have all of the shoe staples you’ll ever need in your closet. That way, when you aren’t sure which shoe to choose, one of these 8 choices is sure to be a winner! Everything is under $100 as of writing this post! These shoes aren’t trendy. However, they are timeless styles that can be worn with a majority of your outfits. Many of these are featured in capsule wardrobes, like this one, and packing lists, like this.

8 Types of Shoes Every Woman Should Own

1. Black Pumps

A classic black pump is the ultimate essential of all types of shoes for women, generally speaking. It can be worn with a t-shirt and jeans to instantly polish an ultra casual look. Or it can be worn to a formal black-tie event. Even if your daily lifestyle doesn’t require a heel, I recommend having a pair for special occasions.

2.  Black Flat

I consider a black flat a more comfortable version of a black pump. Whether you work in an office or are a stay-at-home mom, a black flat fits any lifestyle! Wear with pants or a nice dress. A good black flat is extremely versatile.

3. White Sneaker

White sneakers made a huge comeback in recent years. Today, you see them styled with pants and even dresses! There are even professional office wear looks that look good with a clean, modern sneaker. The versatility makes it an essential shoe every woman should own.

4. Leopard Flat

In my opinion, leopard is a neutral. Are you with me?! I think leopard, when used in moderation, can be paired with any look. I even like to pair a nice leopard flat with a plaid top. The options are endless, that’s why I have included a leopard flat on the essential list of types of shoes for women.

5. Tall Boot

For boots like this, I do recommend keeping the color either black or brown. I like the cognac brown personally. These are essential for cooler climates but can also be worn in climates that are warm (not hot) with dresses and skirts.

6. Ankle Boots

Ankle boots, particularly suede or leather, are a must for fall and winter. The lighter tan color can also be worn well into the spring. I recommend a lighter tan because you will get more wear for your money. However, if you work in an office setting, black would be my recommendation.

7. Sandals

The outfit possibilities are endless with a great sandal. Sandals can be worn from late spring to early fall, which is why I recommend most women have at least one good pair in their closet. I also like to take a nice sandal when we go on a beach vacation.

8. Slippers

Whether you work from home or not, you need a nice slipper. Having a structured slipper not only keeps your feet warm, but it makes you feel a little more “dressed” on days you’re not leaving the house. When I’m not working, I like to have a slipper that resembles a real shoe for when we have company.

 

BONUS

There is one more shoe I think every wardrobe needs. A chelsea boot. These are so comfortable yet stylish! I have a pair and wear them so much during the fall. In the winter, I like to layer cozy socks over skinny jeans with these boots. I prefer the rainboot style, that way I have a stylish shoe for wet weather.

MY RECENT AMAZON PURCHASES

August Amazon Purchases

Scalloped Sports Bra & Matching Leggings
After seeing this set on my friend Kendi, I immediately ordered it for myself.  The color I wanted wasn’t in stock in my size, but I was surprised by how much I loved this aqua hue (and by how tan it made me look!).  The leggings have a nice high waist and fit perfectly!  I found both pieces to run true to size – the quality of the fabric & compression is perfect, even for more intense workouts.

Waterproof Dog Leash
When we took our anniversary getaway to the beach last month, we brought our dog along with us & he had the best time running through the waves and digging in the sand.  But, his leash got so wet & muddy and it took forever to dry out.  So, as soon as we got back, I ordered this waterproof leash to take with us next time we go hiking, camping or to the coast – it’s super durable and a portion of all sales are donated to help local animal rescues.

Essie “On The Bright Cider”
One thing I love about Amazon is that you can often find discontinued beauty items still for sale.  This polish is from an older Essie Collection that I somehow missed out on, so I was happy to find it again – it’s the perfect neutral shade as we transition into fall!

Clarifying Post-Swim Shampoo
Now that we have a pool in our backyard, we’ve all been swimming pretty regularly…which is great exercise, but not so good for our hair.  I finally bought this clarifying shampoo, which removes every trace of chlorine while hydrating strands + it’s non-GMO, cruelty-free & has no parabens.

Self-Tanning Mitt
This was the summer when I finally started self-tanning regularly and it’s safe to say I’m hooked.  I’ve been using this foaming mousse and when I apply it with this mitt, I get a flawless application with no streaks!

24K Gold Eye Patches
I just ran out of my last supply of eye patches and wanted to try a new kind, so I ordered these and have been so happy with them.  They are quite a bit more slippery than what I was using before so I only apply them when I have time and can lean my head back or lay down completely.  But, it’s worth it because they have a major de-puffing effect & I really noticed a difference in brightness – will definitely be buying again!

USB Wireless Charging Alarm Clock
Our alarm clock died in the move, so I wanted to find a replacement that had a more modern look to it.  This one works as a Bluetooth speaker & a wireless charging station, so I can just set my phone on top of it before bed.  My husband also appreciates that the LED light has a dimmer on it so it isn’t obtrusive when you’re trying to fall asleep.

Over-The Sink Roll-Up Drying Rack
My parents have a very small dishwasher in their house, so we end up washing more than half of our things by hand.  After realizing that my mom didn’t have a drying rack, I ordered this one for her – you can place it over the sink or on the counter and it rolls up so you can easily store it without taking up too much cupboard space.

Detangling Hair Brush
My daughter has been growing her hair this summer and it’s gotten so long that it’s a bit of a challenge to manage her natural waves (especially after swimming).  I bought this detangling brush for her to use when we’re camping, but she loves it so much, it’s become an everyday essential.  If you have young kids with sensitive scalps, I highly recommend giving this a try!

Waterproof Sneakers
This was another item I ordered after our beach trip when I realized I needed a shoe that I could go in & out of the water in that still had good traction to it.  These look & feel just like sneakers, but they are made from a lightweight, quick-drying material so you can walk through creeks, puddles & along the riverbank or beach front.  Because they’re waterproof, they’re super-easy to clean…just rinse out with water & let dry in the sun!  I ordered my usual size & they it perfectly.

Stainless Steel Tube Squeezers
Although these are intended for use on toothpaste, I specifically ordered them because I have several beauty & skincare products that come in tubes that make it hard to get all the product out of (specifically this makeup primer, this exfoliating scrub & this face sunscreen).  Because these are more expensive products, I want to make sure I’m getting my money’s worth & squeezing out every last drop – so these handy tools are a must-have!

Laundry Bar Soap
I’ve been learning so much from my mom since we moved in with them and one of the things she recently showed me was how she hand-washes clothing.  I ordered this bar soap to practice her method with and I’m amazed by the results!  She gets one edge of the bar soap wet and then lightly rubs on the area that needs cleaning (if it’s a less fragile material, you can rub the fabric against itself to really work out the stain).  Then she takes a clean, damp cloth and presses it into the garment until it’s completely clean.

Nail File Buffer Set
Every time I buy a random nail file at the drugstore, I end up being unhappy with the grit or find that it isn’t exactly what I wanted.  So I was happy to find this set on Amazon for such a great price – you get 3 different files that are great for shaping and 3 different buffers for eliminating ridges, smoothing & adding shine.

Refrigerator Organizer Bins
One of the things in the house that causes us the biggest headache is the refrigerator – trying to store enough food for the 6 of us, especially when 3 of us have specific dietary needs, is a real challenge.  I finally ordered some more of these organizer bins for my parents to keep their things separate (so my kids don’t eat them!) and so everything is easier to see at a quick glance.

Liquid Collagen Supplement
My hair has been falling out like crazy lately, so I’ve been researching what I can do to improve it & I learned that liquid collagen is absorbed in the body so much better than the powder version I’d previously been using.  This supplement is actually a combination of both Biotin & Collagen so it’s specifically formulated for hair & nail growth.  I just started using it and will keep you posted on how it goes.

We had a major scare with our sweet puppy yesterday, which resulted in a middle-of-the-night visit to the ER vet.  Thankfully, they were able to help him & he is at home resting now, but must be carefully monitored for the next 48 hours.  Apparently, he had eaten some acorns on the farm & we learned that they are poisonous for dogs.  My parents have a huge oak tree in their backyard, so we are going to have to watch him much more closely when he’s outside from now on.  Needless to say, those were some of the scariest hours of my life and I never want to go through that again!

For that reason, we will be laying low this weekend & trying our best to stay cool – it’s going to be over 100 degrees both Saturday & Sunday!  If you’re also staying indoors to avoid the heat & looking to do a little online shopping, here are the best sales & deals to check out:

Now that we’ve been living with my parents for 2 months, I’m starting to see where I got my passion for a good bargain from.  There is no one who does a better job of scouring the grocery ads & finding the best deals than my mom – I have saved so much money since we started doing our food shopping together & I’m quickly learning her savvy ways.

Mango Ruffled Crochet Sweater

I love finding pieces that feel one-of-a-kind and Mango has long been one of my favorite stores for unique items that you won’t see anywhere else.  The colorful stripes & flutter sleeves of this crochet top caught my eye because it’s so different than anything in my closet.  It’s perfect for pairing with cropped denim & shorts this time of year and I plan on wearing it into the early fall paired with a suede skirt & booties.

If you’ve never ordered from them before, I’d recommend sticking with your usual size – they are offering free shipping at $50 & free returns on all orders right now!  Some of my top picks from their site include this open-knit sweater, these gray high-waist jeans, this puff sleeve top, these strappy snake-print sandals (less than $20!) and this pretty floral skirt.

Their accessories are worth checking out too because they have such a high-end feel, like this woven bag, this raffia headband, this layered necklace, these chunky hoop earrings & this roomy tote (under $20!).  If you have little kids, they have the most adorable clothing lines for boys & girls too!

For some reason, this summer is the most consistent I’ve been with my workouts in a long time.  My family has been going through some difficult trials lately and I’m finding that I really notice a difference on the days when I’m unable to exercise.  Running, in particular, has been such a stress release for me & has helped tremendously with my mental health since we moved.  Though I do miss taking classes at the gym, I definitely appreciate not having to pay a monthly membership!

I don’t know about you, but nothing gets me more motivated to get moving than having cute clothes to break a sweat in.  If you’re wanting to update your workout gear, I’ve put together some chic activewear looks below that will work for various types of exercise – I also found a great sale on sneakers & all the pairs below are included (ends August 8th).  I just ordered this sports bra & matching leggings from & I can’t say enough good things about them – love the fabric & compression!  Here are more of my current affordable favorites:

ONE:  Strappy Sports Bra // High Waisted Leggings // Sneakers
TWO:  Tulip Back Tee // Colorblock Leggings // Sneakers
THREE:  Tie-Back Tank // Camo Bike Shorts // Sneakers
FOUR:  Keyhole Back Tee // Printed Bike Shorts // Sneakers

August is always the month when I stop buying summer clothes & start looking forward to the new season. Obviously, it’s way too hot to wear sweaters & bulky layers right now, so I try to seek out pieces that will be versatile enough to be able to style through multiple seasons.  I thought I’d share a few examples of this today, focusing on 3 key pieces, and showing you how to wear them both now & later.  Let me know if you’d like to see more posts like this as we get closer to transitioning to fall!

Hard to believe that today is the last day of July!  I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for a new month to begin and I’m hopeful that it will bring us closer to a more “normal life”.  This past week was a rough one for us, so I’m looking forward to turning over a new leaf with the beginning of August.
