Look Book – Mules

By on May 24, 2014

One of the many upsides to summer finally arriving (fashionably late) is that I now have an excuse to get a pedicure! There are so many sandal trends to keep up with, and the ‘mule’, also known as the old lady shoe because it typically is a lower heel and is made more so for comfort rather than fashion, is making its way back into the youthful wardrobes of the fashionistas around the world. Many designers are sending their models down the runway in these slip on sandals and you my friend, are next. The shoe is trending big time right now, so go get your toenails painted ladies, because the mule is back for the summer, and here’s how to wear it.

These shoes are great because they are so versatile and can be worn during the day, at work or out at night. Try pairing these cute slip on’s with a pencil skirt and a flowy tank. Trade in your briefcase for a cute clutch and some jewlz before you head out at night.

Simple chic is always underrated. The elegance of a timeless outfit is underappreciated nowadays with most people sticking to the trends of the moment (yes, I am one of those people) but I love a clean slate and looking clean as well, so try a more minimalist approach now and then by trying a white one piece. You can mix you accessories any time you wear it and it’ll always look classy. These amazing mules have a special place in my heart, so perfect. End of rant.
