I‘ve been here before going on about my love of heels and what they do for a woman. I’ve also given you an ode to sneakers and why I came crawling back to them after year’s of sashaying in my stilettos. But now as a mom of two and constant busy bee I have dived head first into the world of mules and slides. Now I just need a closet full of caftans and turbans to fully become the lady of leisure I long to be. Jump into this post to see why slides are my shoe of the moment because baby I don’t know if I’m coming back!
At every turn lately there is a slide that goes with everything. I’m not sure if we should blame Rihanna for the fur Puma craze or if we can give this one to the grannies that came before us who spent their lives in beveled heeled slippers making breakfast. Whoever it is I’ll just give out these thanks now. Whether it’s my Birkenstocks, these denim beauties from Jeffery Campbell, or the pair of bejeweled Oscar De la Renta’s that I’ve got my eye on, slides are the Lucy to my Ricky these days. Mainly because they offer a touch of chic while not risking my comfort level and for that I am grateful. However I must say ladies if you’re going to jump into this slide game, I’ve got to keep you snazzy. That’s why I’ve rounded up a few pairs that will keep you covered!
These three are among my favorite in the bow slide category. Each has a feminine element that will give outfit just a hint of pretty even if you aren’t stepping through with your heels on.
Looking for something that has a more casual flair? The pairs below will go perfectly with your outfits when you leave the gym or if you’re taking those leggings on a spin around town to run errands, give a little jazz to your yoga pants girls.
Now if you’re going for that lady of leisure style I mentioned earlier then these last few pair are just for you. Something a bit gussied up that can take you to the office, a dinner party, or even brunch on Sunday morning. Mimosas anyone?
And there you have a it a full break down of what you need as summer approaches and where you can get it. Don’t ever say I didn’t give you anything! Now I just need to figure out which I want to add to my closet.
Are you down with the slide trend? Let me know!
