It goes without saying that we aren’t all quite like Carrie Bradshaw. Not every girl has a wardrobe packed full of Louboutins and we don’t all spend every month’s pay packet on our dream set of Manolo Blahniks. However, no matter how laid back your attitude is to footwear, there are some basics no one can afford not to own.  From professional, corporate attire to beach sandals, clubbing high heels to winter boots, these are the shoes we just can’t live without:

1. Ballet Flats

The classic ballet flat should never be underestimated. Comfortable, affordable and easy to match with a range of outfits, the ballet flat is a footwear essential. Try to find some flats of decent quality that don’t look like they’ll fall apart at the first sign of wet weather. Also, don’t always stick to plain old black. A pair of red ballet flats is a great option that adds a bit of colour to a black or navy outfit.

2. Winter Boots

Winter means puddles, snow and generally chilly weather. A must-have addition to every girl’s wardrobe is a pair of well-made leather boots. Brown leather knee-high boots can be perfectly paired with jeans and a coat for a subtly elegant look, whilst a funky pair of ankle boots is great combined with skinny jeans or leggings and a tunic.

3. Summer Sandals

Summer time means more open styled shoes. Unless you’re wearing a bikini and are physically on the beach, try not to be tempted by flip fops. They might seem like a comfortable option but they don’t stand up to much walking and, once scuffed, risk looking a little scruffy. Instead, opt for a well-fitted gladiator sandal.

4. High Heels

Everyone needs at least one pair of high heels to wear on a night out. These can be in a classic black or, better yet, can add a bit of colour with a Pair of silver shoes (click here). Always opt for a comfortable heel and never try to walk in a heel that feels too big for you, as chances are you won’t last the night.

5. Running Shoes

Finally, every girl needs a solid pair of running shoes – and not owning a nice pair just becomes one more excuse not to exercise! Good ankle balance and a strong arch support is just the sort of thing to hit the pavement and get jogging again. 

If your not the type to care about trends and all, this is the one to look into. Prints are the in thing now. This is my favorite trend because I am in love with colors. It is timeless and it will always come back in style.
It's perfect for the sunny weather, and can go from day to night and you are sure to attract the right attention on you.

What's your take on this trend?

Last week Saturday was really an interesting day, My Fiance and I only planned to go to an event we were invited to, and some how, we found ourselves caught up in a couple of things, to the point we had to go somewhere at the end of the day to chill due to all the running around. But it was a fun day, we got back home pretty late (tired). Anyway before I bore you, this was what I wore. we have to dress up for the event, but I wanted to wear something that was comfortable and a little simple yet chic. I'm so happy I brought my flats with me, because I really do not know how I would have lasted the whole day in those heels.

It was so windy, I would hardly keep a straight face.

This is how the neck is suppose to look like, but the wind made it look all crazy.

My Country is 52 years today, and unfortunately, I don't really have a green outfit to wear (which is actually weird), so I decided to go back and combine some of my clothes I have worn that has a hint of green, just to celebrate the day. I love my country and I know we would get better as the years go by.
