Happy Tuesday, ladies! Today I’m styling a sweater dress from Target, but I wanted to talk to you about how to pick the right shoe. It’s one of the mistakes a lot of women make when adding accessories to their outfit.
Here is where I think we make a mistake, we pick too dark of a shoe. I’m wearing a tan dress, so I want to keep my shoes light. These peep toe sandals are a brown sugar color and to be honest that is as dark as I want to go.
Whether it’s a bootie, a sandal, a wedge, light is always a better option for elongating the leg. A lot of women will try to wear a black shoe because black is a classic. But black is also very stark, and it doesn’t always enhance your outfit.
My rule of thumb is when, in doubt, always go light. I rarely wear a dark shoe unless it’s with dark pants or jeans.
And while we’re talking about shoes, adding a heel even if it’s small, is always a good option. Heels also elongate your legs, especially when wearing a dress. In the summer, I wear a lot of sandals with casual dresses, but I prefer a heel with most of my dresses and pants.
This dress doesn’t have a lot of structure, so I think adding a denim jacket helps to add some structure to the outfit.
Do you have a hard time picking out your shoes with your outfit? Was this helpful?
Beauty For the Heart~~Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered—how fleeting my life is. You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath. Psalm 39:4-6
I don’t have to read the above verses to know that life is short and time keeps flying by. I remember as a child thinking Christmas would never get here and now I feel like I blink my eyes and I’m pulling out the Christmas tree to decorate.
Our time here is brief, and we can get so busy that we forget to look for the blessings in each day. Don’t let today go by without seeing the blessings…the sunrise, a child’s smile, a hug from a friend, food on your table, the changing season. Today don’t miss the blessings!
Have a wonderful day!
