Happy Wednesday, friends! Well, yesterday we had a lot of interesting discussion on picking the right shoe, but I did get some good questions so I thought we would address them today.
First, I think it’s important to know when it comes to fashion there aren’t any rules. You can dress how you choose and how you feel comfortable. I also have said this before, but I never say never when it comes to fashion. Fashion is fun and should be an extension of your personality.
I have found some things that work best for me since I’ve been in this fashion business for several years. I prefer a nude or some shade of tan shoe 75% of the time. A younger fashion blogger will wear a skirt with black booties, and they can rock that look, but I don’t feel like it’s my best look.
I recently styled this dress, and while I think the black heel works, I think it gives you a look at how nude shoes elongate. You’re drawn to the floral dress in the first picture but not as much in the second one.
BP Floral dress (I’m wearing a small)//Earrings//Handbag//Block heel sandal (TTS, less expensive option here)//Nude heels (similar option here)//Faux Leather Jacket(runs small, I’m wearing a medium)//Strapless Bra
Of course, I will wear a black heel. This dress was on the shorter side, so I didn’t want to elongate my legs too much.
It would have been easy to put black shoes with this dress, but I felt a light shoe looked better.
These pictures are older so I don’t have outfit links because they’re sold out. Several of you asked about black tights and would I wear black heels with black tights? Absolutely! I also love black booties with black pants and jeans.
Here’s another look at a different color bootie. While I think the red bootie works, it does stand out, and I think a black bootie would have made the outfit flow better. But sometimes it’s fun to step out of the box.
Of course, it’s safe to say I’ll choose animal print any day!

I hope this helps. Wear what you feel good in, and I know you’ll look fabulous!
Beauty For the Heart~~There has been so much already said about this day. I don’t think any of us will forget where we were on September 11th, 2001 and I am praying for the families today that lost loved ones on Sept. 11th.
I read where someone said they never want another 9/11, but they miss 9/12. Stores ran out of flags to sell because everyone wanted a flag. People were Americans before they were Democrat or Republican. We hugged people without caring if they ate at Chick-Fil-A or wore Nikes.
We need to practice Mark 12:30-31 more than ever, “And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”
Have a blessed day!
