First let me start by saying that I have been searching for leopard printed loafers ever since last fall. I was especially keen on the Steve Madden pair but wasn't too comfortable with their price ($70-90 USD). When I spotted these I was very surprised by both the quality and look of the shoes. They are comparable in style to the Steve Maddens but are far more comfortable in my opinion. The leopard print isn't as large and lovely as the Steve Madden shoes, but it is still a nice print and doesn't come off cheap. The best part of these shoes is that they can be paired with just about anything. I can see myself mostly using them with skinny jeans and leggings, but feel they can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. The leopard print and several other colors are available in store and at target.com for $19.99 (what a bargain)!
The second pair I picked up are these short-style booties that have a bit of a western feel to them but will be a lovely touch to any outfit this fall. I love that they have a bit of a heel on them, but it is a perfect height that doesn't make them a pain to walk in. As I have a 20-minute walk to work every day, this was an important part of my decision to purchase them. I think these will pair nicely with leggings or skinny jeans and an oversized sweater. They could also go nicely with a casual dress but it will depend on how pale my legs get this autumn! The short boots trend has definitely carried over from last year so these will definitely come in handy. This style is available at target.com and also comes in black at the reasonable price of $29.99.
I know that wasn't the largest haul you've ever seen, but as I get better at this blogging thing, I will give you guys a peek into all the items I purchased this summer in preparation for the fall season. Let me know what you think of the shoes, what you'd wear them with, and if you enjoyed this post. Thanks so much for reading!
