Happy Friyay all!
Throughout the week I’m constantly scoping out sales and new releases, and by Friday I always have a wishlist of purchases. Sadly, I’m not magically a billionaire so the large (and I mean large) majority of these finds don’t make it home with me, BUT I thought that since we don’t actually share a closet, I could share my favorite finds each week and help some of you find some rocking purchases!
CONFESSION: *gasp* I have a slight addiction to shoes (ya’ll should see my closet) so I figured we’d start off Friday Finds with a post dedicated entirely to shoes. And since today marks the first official day of Fall (bring on the cozy sweaters and apple cider!!), I decided to walk you through some of the trends you can expect to see this Fall and Winter.
*Also #1-3 are from TJ Maxx and they are offering free shipping on all orders today!
First up: Fall/Winter Shoe Trends
1. Over the knee boots
Try the trend without breaking the bank! I’ve been hesitant to try this style because I’m on the shorter end of the spectrum, but at $49 these are a great way to try things out without investing too much.
These will look great over skinny jeans with an oversized sweater and are perfect for taking those mini skirts and dresses into Fall.
2. Velvet & embroidered Booties
Okay, at $79 (though down from $125) admittedly these are a little pricier than I might normally suggest, but these are by far my favorite I’ve seen of this style. The velvet and embroidered trend is all over the fashion scene right now and these are perfect: on trend, but not so bold that they’ll be out of style by next year.
So I forced myself to only pick two to include here, but there are SO many awesome versions of these everywhere right now! We’re talking versions with tassels, embroidery, velvet, fur lined, to just classic leather. There are options at every price point from the super popular Gucci classic black leather with gold detailing, to the knockoff Gucci version at Target right now!
These are both Dolce Vita, so you know they’re on trend and quality shoes, but at TJ Maxx pricing, you can get the style without the $$.
Now if these studded beauties are still a bit much for you, DV has a slightly more tame version:
4. D’Orsay Flats
I absolutely love this velvet version! I immediately snagged these when I saw them, because I love the velvet trend and this color! To be honest I don’t think they look that much in this pic, but trust me they are super cute. I got a pair and will be styling them for you soon, and at $23 you really can’t beat the price.
I sized down a half size in these, but sometimes I run in between sizes, so just something to think about!
5. Slip on Sneakers
The slip on sneaker is HUGE right now! you can find them in just about every style! I opted for this pair 1. because they wont break the bank and 2. they’re fun but are classic enough that they can go with a ton of different looks.
ALSO I’m showing you a picture of the pink pair because they actually look cute, whereas I fully acknowledge that the olive color on the site looks like a poopy brown. I got the olive pair in the store and the color is WAY better in person and actually looks the color of an olive, so don’t get freaked out if you decide to order online.
Well, that’s it for this week’s Friday Finds -don’t want to overwhelm ya’ll. I hope your weekend is off to a great start!! Let me know if you have anything in particular you want to see for next week’s edition!
