I’m a shoe fan. I’d have fifty million pairs of shoes if my budget and the space in my house allowed for it. I think if I could come back as anyone in the next life, it would be as a shoe designer. Mostly so I could have an endless supply of shoes that always fit and were the perfect shades to perfectly match my outfits in that matchy-matchy way I love. Sigh. Can you imagine? Shoes.

I wear a size 11 shoe. Buying shoes has always been a bit of a pain in the butt. For years I even squished into a 10 or 10 1/2 when I could buy them, so I didn’t miss out on the new season styles and looks. As you guys know, I’m from a relatively small town, so my options weren’t that great. Target was one of the only places I could buy an 11 in a fashion type of shoe. So this month, we’re talking Target’s shoes and how something so simple can make or break an outfit!

Take THIS outfit, for example, with kitten point toe heel is cute, casual and fun. But, with an edgier ankle boot, something for a movie or dinner with girlfriends would be great. Then if you add a wedge, ankle strap heel like these babies, well, it’s date night material, and the woot woo appeal is cranked up more than one notch. The shoes make a whole heap of difference.

I know you’ll hear me loud and clear if you’re a shoe girl too. So now, let’s talk about choosing the right shoe for your outfit!



My tips for choosing the right shoe for your outfits


  • Consider where you are going and what you will be doing.
  • Are you going to add colour to your outfit with your shoes or match one? Or neither?
  • Will the shoes get in the way of any of the outfits? Think ankle straps and harem pants that fall at the ankle.
  • So, what do you WANT to wear? That has to factor in!
  • Sometimes if an outfit looks bland, I change my shoes from flats to heels or from boots to a wedge.
  • Take a moment to check your choice in the mirror. Does it work?
