Focusing on Shoe Love

Changing it up this Valentine's Day and focusing on a new romance: my love for shoes.

My budding romance is a little different for this year’s Valentine’s Day. I’m focusing on shoe love – footwear galore. Yes, I’ll take all of the pairs. All of them.

I know I’ve gushed about my husband plenty of times on this blog. For those of you who followed my wedding stories, you’ll know that I tied the knot with Joe only a couple of years ago. Being a creature of routine, I implemented a Valentine’s tradition pretty early on in our relationship. Now that our family is slowly growing, we’ve got more traditions to fulfill. This Valentine’s, however, I’ve been bitten by a different love bug: my “shoe love” has soared to great, new heights.

Changing it up this Valentine's Day and focusing on a new romance: my love for shoes.

One of the harder parts of my pregnancy was my swelling feet. By the end of my second trimester, they were throbbing and slightly misshaped. I quickly outgrew all of my footwear so I headed out to purchase a couple of new boots. As I expected, my feet went up a full size after giving birth (I was an American size 6 my whole adult-life – I am now a 7). Since this change, I have been obsessed with browsing for new footwear. More specifically, I’ve been scouring the Internet for a pair of nude heels since I have a long line of weddings to attend this summer.

Here are a few of my favorites:

{one} I have always been a sucker for a classic pair of Valentino’s.

{two} My husband is a huge fan of anything Vans – these slip-ons are definitely a pair that I’d wear on a daily basis.

{three} Aldo always nails it with their booties. The golden zipper is what caught my eye on these ankle boots.

{four} I have yet to purchase a pair of Louboutins. These flats are officially on my wishlist.



  1. I am addicted to shoes. I don’t have a preference either, can be high heels, casual or even flip flops. I may never wear them but I have to get them if I think they are cute!

  2. I am addicted to shoes but I’m also addicted to traveling. I love wearing heels but I need a good pair of flats that also look good. I think those Louboutin’s would work perfectly!

  3. I love pair number two. A classic pair of slip on shoes is a must have for anyone’s closet. Comfy and they go with anything,

  4. Although my baby days are behind me I had the same issue. My feet grew half a size per kid, two total.

    I’ve started to get into flats and it has been hard to find really cute options.

  5. My girl is not into wearing those 5 inch heels anymore! She has wised up at an early age. Conformability first and foremost!

  6. I am a shoe lover. I would rather spend my money on designer shoes than bags ) My current favorite brands, I wear daily: Isabel Marant boots, Aquatalia boots, Giuseppe Zanotti.

  7. I’ve always been a handbag gal but lately I’ve had an affinity for luxury shoes. I splurged on a pair of Chloe flats and they were the best shoe investment I’ve made! Great post.
