Along Abbey Road | A Lifestyle And Family Blog : 5 Shoes Every Girl Needs In Her Closet


5 Shoes Every Girl Needs In Her Closet


My closet has been stripped down and ripped apart in the last month. You see, I am one of those weirdos that gets sentimentally attached to my clothes and shoes -- especially my shoes. But, after watching one too many episodes of Hoarders, I bucked up and rid my tiny closet of the tattered clompers I haven't worn for a year and probably will never wear again. 

Then I had a shoe epiphany... 

"Abbey, you really only need five pairs of shoes. Simplify, girl. SIMPLIFY!"

And simplify I did!

Okay, so I obviously have more than five pairs of shoes, but if you feel at a loss as to what shoe styles you need, this guide is for you!

1) Basic Pump: It is like the LBD (little black dress) of the shoe world. Don't argue with it. Just go get yourselves a pair of basic black heels. The pointed toe will help elongate your legs too (please and thank you)!

2) Flat Sandal: This is pretty much what I wear all summer long. I like to buy mine in a basic brown or black color because they will go with everything. Shorts, skirts, pants, you name it!

3) Versatile Flat: It seems counterintuitive to buy a flat that is in a bright or metallic color, but I am telling you that they are the best basic! The bright color can dress up your look or give you a polished finish to a simple look.

4) Wedge: These bad boys are easy to walk in, comfortable and add the right amount of boho and glam to your look. Need I say more?

5) Fun & Edgy: This is your wild card shoe. And every girl needs one! It's the pair of shoes that is maybe a bit too colorful or crazy, but you feel like they are your soul mate (or sole mate! People, I'm full of terrible jokes). In that case, I say buy them! And wear them with pride! The world is yours for the taking!

All of these shoes I found are from Shoedazzle. I have been weary of the whole shoe club thing, and was hesitant as to which one I should sign up for, but then I saw that Rachel Zoe is the guest stylist for Shoedazzle and the price point was right up my alley. Sold and sold! And bonus, you get 25% off your first pair of shoes. What's not to love?  

So, my fellow fashionistas, what shoes do you have your eye on? Happy shopping!

I just got rid of my power heels. I just couldn't do it. I probably have too many boots ha

I'm already 5'9", so I don't feel a need to be any taller. And the flats, I'm weary that I'll feel everything that I walk on.

These shoes are gorgeous. I am still lacking some of those basic shoes. Perhaps a reason to go shopping???
