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.

4 Winter coats you need from Target

Today I am sharing some great coats from my Target run try-on last weekend. You cannot beat the price for the quality of these coats! Some of these coats I gravitate toward every year, others I normally would not go for. A good stylist will tell you that when trying on in store to go for a few pieces you normally wouldn’t try. You will never know if you like it if you don’t try!

Fall & Winter Outfits Ideas

Looking for some new outfits for the cooler days ahead? Check out this post for some fall outfits to go with these coats!

Here is a preview of the four coats I tried. Click the product image below to shop, or shop via the link in my reviews below.

 

  • Quilted Bomber – This has a snap closure and zipper. It is lightweight with a lightly padded quilt texture. Perfect for layering and for mild winter days. True to size, I tried on a medium for an oversized look. Size up to wear with thick layers.

  • Buffalo Plaid Sherpa – Love this coat. It is the softest sherpa I think have ever felt. The wrists are banded, which is something I love in a winter coat. This hits just below the waist line. Features a snap closure and notched-lapel for a timeless look.

 

  • Wrap Coat – This coat is GORGEOUS. First, it is fully lined in satin which is a must for winter coats especially in cold areas. The outer fabric is comparable to wool texture, but is so soft. It is not heavy, which makes it comfortable and perfect for layering. There is one hidden button to secure it closed and is considered knee length. The belted wrap design creates a beautiful silhouette when tied. This is a perfect dupe to a Cole Haan coat I saw recently, going for almost $300. It is just beautiful.

  • Parka – Water resistant and warm. Perfect for those extra cold, snowy days. It has full zipper and snap closures, is fully lined, and has an attached faux fur hood for extra warmth. This hits at the thigh, which I personally love for very cold days. Comes in 4 colors, I am really loving the green!

Trends we wore then, and now

There have been a lot of new trends popping up recently. I wanted to walk through some styling options for a few of my favorites that are back from the 90s! Seeing these trends now brings back so many memories from growing up in the 90s.

I distinctly remember “mom jeans” and telling myself I would never wear them… now here we are. I love a good mom jean today!! They are so comfy and cute. Here are a few I’ve tried recently:

Four trends to love today

  • MOM JEANS: Loose, relaxed fit. I got the Sonoma brand from Kohl’s and they are so soft and stretchy. I prefer a jean that stretches. Below are a few great mom jeans!

Mom Jean Looks to Try

Black Top  //  Mom Jeans  //  Shoes  //  Bag

Sweater  //  Mom Jeans  //  Shoes  //  Bag //  Necklace  //  Sunglasses

  • CORDUROY: I bought a vintage J.Crew sherpa lined cord jacket and it is so incredibly warm. I instantly remembered why this was so popular years ago. I’m actually glad this is making a comeback. Corduroy is one of those fabrics that you either love or hate. Giving a few options below, I hope you love! Tried dressing it up a bit! Scroll to the end of the post for pics of my vintage coat.

Corduroy Looks to Try

Cord Blazer  //  Black top  //  Pants  //  Necklace  //  Shoes  //  Bag

Cord Jacket  //  Black top  //  Pants  //  Shoes  //  Bag

  • BIKE SHORTS: Great for lounging around the house or an easy summer outfit. These are easy to pair with oversized tees, hoodies, and jean jackets. I like that they can serve a purpose (for workouts) and also be stylish! Be sure to click on the products below to view all available colors.

Bike Short Looks to Try

Oversized Sweater  //  Shorts  //  Shoes  //  Bag

Sweatshirt  //  Shorts  //  Shoes  //  Bag

  • FANNY PACK: I love that these are now a trend and reimagined as “belt bags”, which elevates the look so much more. Fanny packs I guess are the more casual vibe these days, while belt bags are the more polished bags. Below are some of my favs for both looks.

Fanny Pack Outfits to Try

Long Shacket  //  Dress  //  Fanny Pack  //  Sunglasses  //  Watch Band  //  Shoes

Black Top  //  Mom Jeans //  Shoes  //  Fanny Pack 

My Vintage Cord Jacket

Fall weddings can be tricky because of cooler temperatures.  I always check stores like Nordstrom Rack, T.J.Maxx & Macy’s because you can usually find something great at a discount. Stores like Target, Kohl’s, and Forever 21 are also great options for fall wedding guest outfits if you are attending a more casual wedding.

Some things to look for when shopping for a fall wedding guest dress:

  1. Color – Stick with the fall vibe; deep red, burnt orange, brown, cream (not white), and black.
  2. Texture – Pay attention to movement and feel of the dress; ruffles, layers, satin, fringe, and sleek sweater (for those extra chilly fall days)
  3. Length – Long or midi dresses are ideal for fall weddings, but short can be done too. If you’re going short, you can pair the dress with boots or a versatile coat, especially if it is a sleeveless dress.

Here are a my top 8 favorites:

ROW 1: Dress 1//Dress 2//Dress 3//Dress 4

Row 2: Dress 1//Dress 2//Dress 3//Dress 4

 

Here are a few other I’m loving (click to shop)

 

 

Below are handbag and shoe options that are on trend this season (click to shop) Keep scrolling for shoe pairings I’ve picked for the dresses above.

 

Here is a link to my dress, it comes in black too! This cream dress has the prettiest dusty blue floral print!

 

Check out the image below for some shoe pairing inspiration. I always thing shoes can be difficult for fall weddings, too. I personally love the long dresses paired with boots for fall AND winter weddings! You can never go wrong with the ankle strap heels though.

Hi friends! Yessss, my fall decor went up this week. Yay! Now it’s time to talk about an essential fall wardrobe item. The flannel shirt. We all have our favorite flannel top or two that we get out of the closet this time of year. For me, I have owned the same ones for many years. This year, it is time to switch it up! Don’t get me wrong, I love pieces that have a long closet life, but change can be a good thing! Crop tops are trending, so today I’m sharing four cropped flannel top outfits.

I always love hearing from you! Let me know what you think on Facebook  and Instagram (@ppfgirl)!

 

What I’m wearing: Top, Pants, Bag

Reasons to try this top style

– It pairs perfectly with high rise (and ultra high rise) pants

– Can be tucked in a high rise skirt without having excess, bunching, fabric

– Layer with bodysuit or long tee and wear unbuttoned

– It is so comfy! Try it out and see!

Cropped Flannel Top Outfits

   1. Corduroy Flares: This is honestly my favorite. I wore this outfit with boots but it could easily be worn with sneakers too. These  pants were a bit snug (I bought Medium), so size up if you want a more relaxed look.


 2. Black Skinnies: Black high-rise pants, with a simple bodysuit, and cozy black boots. Fur-lined boots are my favorite for fall & winter.


3. Classic Skinny: Skinny jeans, white tank, and white sneakers. I like this look worn with the top unbuttoned. So easy!


4. Mom Jeans: Another simple look. Relaxed jeans and modern ankle boots.

Hi! This weekend we went and got pumpkins for our front porch. Too soon? Maybe, but they’re cute! Our son is almost two, so pumpkins are a new and exciting thing for him! The look on his face pretty much summarizes how I feel about these handbags! I’ve been waiting patiently to share these designer dupes with you.

Affiliate links may be used in this post. To learn more, please review our full disclosure statement below (on mobile) or to the right (on desktop). Thanks for your support!

Designer & Dupes

Do you like designer bags? Me too! They’re pretty!

Do you like to save a little money? Me too!

Ahhh, the feeling of getting something great at an amazing price! There is nothing like it.

Just to bring everyone up to speed on what a dupe is… So I like this red designer bag from a runway show, but I could never afford it. A local clothing store sells something very similar to that runway bag and I buy that instead. The look-a-like bag from the clothing store is a dupe! It could almost be mistaken for the runway bag, it is the same color and has similar features. Make sense?

Look at the bags below, they are all gorgeous. Column one are all designer bags, column two and three are dupes. Just take that in for a moment before I spill some more tea. haha

Red Satchel: Designer, Designer clutch, Dupe, Dupe Under $30  |||  Black Bucket: Designer, Dupe, Dupe Under $30  |||  Green Chain-Link: Designer, Dupe, Dupe Under $30  |||  Scrunchie Hobo: Designer, Dupe, Dupe Under $30  |||  Computer Tote: Designer, Dupe, Dupe Under $30

 

Column 3 bags are all under $30.

You read that right. I ordered all 5 bags in column 3 for under $100! When I ordered the red bag, it was on sale for $10! Sadly, it is now going for $25.. but that’s still pretty great in my opinion. Now let’s take a look at each style. Scroll all the way to the end to see how I styled 3 of these bags.

Red Satchel: Designer, Designer clutch, Dupe, Dupe Under $30

First, the color. It is heavenly. The under $30 bags appears to be bright red in the photos online, however I would call it a burnt brick red in person. Still gorgeous. It comes with the cutest leopard print clutch, making this an even better find! Second, how perfect is this satchel for bringing to the office? When I was working at a fancy office I had a large tote bag for pretty much everything: computer, wallet, keys, shoes, workout clothes (we had a gym on-site), everything.. it was in that bag. Well, then someone would schedule a lunch and there I was juggling my wallet, keys, phone, employee badge, and chapstick to to lunch. HAHA.  This bag is the perfect addition to your office computer bag or tote bag. It is not too big and fits daily essentials. I would even use this to dress up any weekend outfit.

Black Bucket: Designer, Dupe, Dupe Under $30

That Gucci bag though… googly eyes. This style is perfect for everyday use, when you don’t have a lot of things to carry around. It is the perfect size for a phone, small wallet, ear buds, keys, lip gloss, and a spare mask. The under $30 bag comes with two detachable straps, one for crossbody and one for handheld. There is no zipper on this bag, just a magnetic button closure and cinch tassel. When I am in a hurry to change bags, this will be my go to, and I won’t have to worry about it going with whatever outfit I have on since it is black.

Green Chain-Link: Designer, Dupe, Dupe Under $30

Loving the color of this designer bag… really thought green wasn’t my color, but it has been catching my eye a lot lately. This is another bag that is perfectly sized for all of your essentials and the chain-link detail adds trendy flare to it. Honestly, I almost prefer the acrylic chain of the under $30 bag. Whenever I have something metal dangling around, it is so easily scratched or the metal scratches things: like my screen protector. The acrylic chain also complements the color of the purse without being too contrasting.

Scrunchie Hobo: Designer, Dupe, Dupe Under $30

Effortless and creamy is how I would describe this bag. I love each version shown. I got the under $30 bag from Walmart, msrp on the tag says $98, so this is a great quality find! The fabric is very soft and the interior fabric is the prettiest blue paisley. This one has a zip closure. Did you check out my last post on earth tones? This item would go great with a lot of pieces highlighted in that post!

Computer Tote: Designer, Dupe, Dupe Under $30

Let’s talk office bags again. This one is important. The under $30 bag is really grate for the price. It has a magnetic button close, exterior pocket; 4 interior pockets, 1 snap close for laptop, 1 interior side zipper, 1 middle section zipper, and 2 open side pockets for phone, pens, etc. This bag comes with a lot and is great if you are only going into the office periodically, as many people are these days.

What I’m wearing: Jacket(similar), Tee, Leggings, Shoes (similar, mine are Kate Spade bought second hand)

The  trend  continues…

With fall and winter right around the corner I want to share a list of budget friendly faux leather leggings under $50. These have been very popular the last few years. Each year, I think the trend will fade, then they pop up again in stores! I was happy to see them as new arrivals at Target recently simply because I hadn’t bought into this trend yet.

There are so many ways you can wear these. They can be dressed up or down. You can wear them for a night out, running errands, or just around the house. Seriously, you can’t go wrong. Later this week I will share some outfit inspirations, like the one above. Wear them with whatever makes YOU comfortable. For me, I like to wear longer shirts or tunics with these leggings.

When shopping around for these, I read reviews and saw photos from women of all body types, the options I’m sharing here have great reviews across the board. I personally don’t buy anything without digging into the reviews, so I encourage you to do the same to make sure they’re exactly what you’re looking for.

Now, if you aren’t a fan of leggings to begin with, this post may not be for you. If you’re just starting out with incorporating leggings into your wardrobe, maybe you don’t want to jump into the leather look. I get that. It took me the longest time to buy leggings that weren’t standard black cotton (2020 changed all that)! If you’re in that boat, and want a good black pair, I recommend these from Target, currently $20. They are my personal favorite. I like them because they are a thicker fabric, stretchy, mid-rise, they stay put, you cannot see-through them, and you can put them in the dryer. I always wash these in cold water and dry on the lowest temp.

OK – back to the faux leather. If you have a little bit more room in your budget and want to invest in a high-end pair, Spanx has great faux leather leggings . These are just under $100, but have outstanding reviews and set the bar pretty high for faux leather leggings. At the time of writing this post, they had over 3,400 reviews with an average 4.4 star rating. I personally can’t bring myself to spend that much on a pair of leggings, especially knowing I will not wear the leather look often. If you try these out let me know what you think! This is becoming a wardrobe staple for some, so it may be a good investment piece.

For those who want a similar look, for less, I’ve put together a list of faux leather leggings under $50 below.

 

Affordable  Faux  Leather  Leggings under $50

In the order they appear in the photo above

1. Aerie Crackle Legging, as of writing this post, these are on sale for under $30!

Unfortunately, there are only limited sizes currently available in black. Sad! Hopefully you have some luck snagging these. From my research, these seem like an amazing comparable to the higher end faux leather leggings. I do love the other colors they have too! If you get these, I would love to hear what you think, so feel free to comment below.

2. Nordstrom brand, original price of these is just below $60, so be on the lookout for sales and other discount opportunities for these! They were under $40 with the recent sales promo going on.

Reviews are SO GOOD for these. They are said to have a thicker lining which makes them more suitable for winter, compared to other options. If you live in a cooler climate, you can extend your wear on these throughout winter! I live in Ohio and can say there is nothing worse than a cold winter breeze seeping through your clothes when you step outside.

3. Target Wild Fable Liquid Leggings, currently $18! I’ll say that again… $18. Skip buying your morning coffee for a few days and buy these instead.

Ok. You just can’t beat the price here. They have so many good reviews. I bought these and love them! I was torn between size small and medium, so I ordered both online and ended up keeping the medium. Small was just a pinch too tight and I don’t want them to shrink up in the wash. These are super lightweight and have good stretch to them. They are not see-through. I will definitely be adding these to my WFH wardrobe rotation! P.S. These are my favorite!

4. Amazon Ginasy legging, as of writing this post, these are under $35.

These are lined, which make them warmer than other versions. I had to buy these to try because the reviews were so good. Also, when I purchased, there was a coupon available and FREE shipping. So I got them for under $20! WIN! Even if you can’t get them at this price, the original price is still good, in my opinion. These would be great for cooler weather.

5. Retro Gong, Amazon, these are going with a coupon right now for under $40, original price is just below $50.

Over 6k reviews with 4.4 average rating. That is a ton of good reviewing on these!! I like the look of these in photos. Some leather leggings can look plastic and fake, but these do not.

Thank you to Nordstrom & ShopStyle for kindly sponsoring this post.
All opinions are 100% honest & all items were hand-selected by me.

Several of my friends never used to shop at Nordstrom because they thought it was out of their price range, but ever since I turned them on to their budget-friendly in-house brands, they have been hooked!  Since I consider you all my friends (even though most of us have never met face-to-face), I want to share with you the same great scoop because there are some truly incredible gems to be found.  So, today I’m highlighting my top 3 knitwear picks for winter from their BP, Leith and Treasure & Bond lines – everything is under $60 and, as always, all shipping & returns are free!

THE WRAP SWEATER

Leith Wrap Sweater

Similar to a wrap dress, this silhouette of sweater is so complimentary to any figure & can be easily dressed up or down.  Because it isn’t bulky, you can tuck it into a midi skirt (like this or this) + the plunging neckline provides the perfect backdrop for layered necklaces – this mixed metal style is great buy!

The one I’m wearing here is a faux wrap, which I personally prefer because you don’t have to worry about it staying tied in place as you move around throughout the day.  Because it doesn’t have a closure in front, though, you will definitely want to pin it or layer a cami underneath for coverage (like this or this).  This rust hue is one of my favorites because it’s flattering on any skintone, it works well in both fall & winter and it pairs beautifully with blue, black or white denim. Other lightweight knitwear I love: this raglan sweater (such an elegant neckline), this puff sleeve sweater, this crewneck sweater (a great basic) & this mock neck sweater (just ordered in black!).

THE SWEATER DRESS

Belted sweater dress

I typically don’t wear dresses this time of year – mainly because I hate being cold and I’m not a big fan of tights.  But, this cozy sweater dress has changed my mind!  Because it’s a longer length, I was able to go without tights (though you could easily layer them underneath if you live in a colder climate).  This is made from a soft knit blend that’s not too bulky and it isn’t itchy at all – and it’s currently on sale for just $27.50!!

What I love about sweater dresses is their versatility – you can wear them with booties, pumps or sneakers, depending on the look you’re going for.  A lot of knit dresses I’ve tried seem to be overly clingy, but this one has such a nice relaxed fit that I found very flattering.  I got my usual size, but if you prefer a more fitted look, you’ll want to size down in this one. More chic sweater dress options to try here, here & here.

If you’re shorter or on the petite side, this one may be a better length for you.  But, if you’re in the Nordy Club, alterations are free…so you could simply have this hemmed to suit you.  If you’re not already a member, you can sign up here – it’s quick, easy and totally free + you’ll earn points for every purchase you make.  For every 2,000 points, you get a $20 Nordstrom Note (basically a gift card) that you can use on anything you want at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook or Nordstrom Trunk Club – it’s like getting paid to shop!

THE FAIR ISLE CARDIGAN

BP Fair Isle Cardigan

By now, you know what a big fan I am of fair isle patterns, so I couldn’t resist this amazing budget buy!  I actually like this one better than the other cardigan I shared with you last week because it’s a softer knit, it isn’t as cropped and the shape is much more flattering (recommend sizing down).  I front-tucked it into my jeans here, but it’s actually long enough that you could wear it over leggings (these are my all-time favorite!).  More fair isle sweaters worth checking out include this crewneck, this mockneck (currently on sale!) and this splurge-worthy metallic style.

You may notice that I’m wearing the same booties in all these outfits…and it’s because they’re THAT good!  Real leather with a comfortable block heel, under $45 and over 200 five-star reviews – these are such a steal.  I went up 1/2 a size as the listing suggested and found them to fit comfortably with knit socks.  As you can see in these photos, the shaft height is perfect for wearing with jeans or dresses.
