Perfect Pumps

by fromsugarwithstyle

For years I searched long and hard to find the perfect pair of nude pumps. It seemed that all the ones I could find were either uncomfortable, really expensive or suede ( which I have too many pairs of in other colors ). This past summer I finally stumbled upon the perfect pair. They are easy to walk in, the perfect color and made out of a perfectly polished patent leather.

I get so much wear out of these shoes ( also seen here ) I am debating buying another pair just in case these get scuffed.

31 Days Of Creating A Wardrobe- Heels

by fromsugarwithstyle

Heels are my weakness. I tend to have way more than I need and not enough shoes that I can actually wear every day. I hear this is a trend with us girls! However if you’re going to be more practical with your wardrobe and start with the basics these are the heels you should have.

1- A nude pump- They go with just about everything and don’t compete with your outfit.

2- A basic black heel- If you were to only have one heel this should be it.

3-A Peep toe- doesn’t have to be a cage look like this, but something that shows those pedicures!

4- A Statement heel- A bold color or funky print is the best way to go.

5- A wooden heel for day- These are great with summer dresses and shorts.

6-A wedge- Much more comfortable than the high heel but still give you a confident lift.

31 Days Of Creating A Wardrobe- Boots

by fromsugarwithstyle

Finding staples when it comes to boots is one of the harder wardrobe tasks.  There are many options and they tend to be pricier then any other shoe. These are 7 that are worth investing in.


1- Flat riding boots- A must have for fall and so versatile I could almost wear them every day

2- A flat or a low heel ankle boot- These happen to be in a cowboy boot style but they don’t have to be!

3- Booties- If you only have one pair make them black

4- A chunky heel low or high boot- for when you want to wear a heel but still be able to walk

5- Ugg boots-  disclaimer -I am in no way saying that ugg boots should be used as an outfit staple or that its ok to wear them with a jean skirt if you are over 13 BUT  when you need to make a late night run to the grocery store or walk to dog on a windy morning there is nothing better than slipping these on!

6- Rain boots- these have saved me many times

7- Winter boots- If you live in a warmer state you can forgo these boots but they are VERY necessary for the snowy winter.

31 Days Of Creating A Wardrobe- Sandals

by fromsugarwithstyle

Sandals are fairly simple. You only need a few pairs to round out that part of your wardrobe and always have an option. Of course if you’re like me you’ll have 12 pairs sitting in your closet!. Good thing I live in California!

1- Flip flops- A MUST have- perfect for slipping on and heading out the door- My favorite are Reef because they end up forming to your feet and are super comfortable. Havaianas are also a great option.

2- A Brown pair

3- A black pair

4- Sandals that you can hike in- These are also great for theme park vacations

5- A pair that make a statement- Whether it be a bold color, fringe, metallic or studs.

31 Days Of Creating A Wardrobe- Flats

by fromsugarwithstyle

When it comes to shoes I am a firm believer that you can never have too many. The options are endless and you can wear many different shoes with each outfit in your closet. However I do think that a person can have 100 pairs of shoes but still not have the staples in their closet. Nothing is worse than throwing on an awesome outfit and realizing that you don’t have the right shoes to go with it! The next 4 days I will be showing you the basic shoes to have in your wardrobe in order to never be stuck in that situation.

1- Simple black flats-Great for Days when you don’t want a heel but want to look pulled together.

2-Oxfords- A great way to add polish to a casual outfit.

3-Moccasins- Wondering why?? They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned.

4-A pair of TOMS or converse- great for when sneakers aren’t really an option but you want something snug.

5- A pair of bright flats- An easy way to make a simple outfit pop.

5- Travel flats- for the times you just want to get out of your heels!
