Shoe! Glorious Shoes! Well, I am most excited about shoes this season, which is why I am posting my shoe capsule wardrobe before my clothing and handbags this holiday season. Can you blame me? Shoes are glorious!

This holiday season, life is more casual and quiet and than in holiday seasons past. This means I am looking more for utility rather than sparkle in my holidays 2020 shoe capsule wardrobe. These block heel booties are perfect to pair with jeans. They are comfortable for walking plus they have a little bit of lift to make me a couple inches taller. They really add polish to an everyday look. Love!

Lug soles are hotter than hot this season, and while I thought I might avoid the trend since I already own a couple pairs of lug soles boots, I couldn’t help myself. After all, I didn’t have a flat pair; only heels. So of course, I felt the need to add a flat pair to my closet! This pair of lug sole boots is super comfortable for walking and standing, plus, they are waterproof! They will be perfect once our rainy season starts. I tried to clean them up as much as possible for these photos, but my apologies, they have been getting quite a bit of wear and are showing it. They are my go-to boots right now!

My grey stamped croc loafers have been in my capsule wardrobe since fall, and they are great for warmer days. If you haven’t jumped on the classic loafer trend yet, I highly recommend snapping up a pair. They come in tons of colors, and never go out of style! Love that!

‘Tis the season for cozy and soft slippers. I cannot get enough of these fabulous slippers. They are super cozy and soft. They would also make a great gift for the holidays! Love that they are priced under $75.

These square toe heels are on trend and a must-have for any capsule shoe wardrobe. Fingers crossed I have somewhere to wear them this season! They are very comfortable, but with all of our lockdowns, heels haven’t been something I have needed to wear. When we get our vaccines, I will find a lot of excuses to wear high heels! Just wait! haha

Lastly, we all need one pair of fabulous sneakers for walking and everyday wear. As you may have noticed, these have been in my seasonal capsule wardrobes for the last couple of years. They are high quality and super comfortable. If you are looking for a great investment, these are it!

Fall 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe

fall handbag capsule autumn 2020

Fall 2020 capsule wardrobe from top left: Mansur Gavriel bucket bag black/flamma / Givenchy Antigona small / Mansur Gavriel Cloud Clutch black/flamma / Chloe Marcie small black / Chanel Boy Bag (similar under $200) /

This fall, I decided to pull bags I already own, which fit into the current fall handbag trends, and put together a capsule wardrobe; instead of buying a new bag to add to my collection. While there are bags I would like to purchase, I am undecided on which one to actually buy; so I am going to wait until next season to decide. I am eyeing the Bottega Veneta Cassette Bag in black, the Givenchy Antigona Soft in grey, a few bags from Staud, and a few bags on Miirta. It’s hard to pick just one!

The fall handbag trends for 2020 include heavy chain straps, bucket bags, pouch clutches, hard clutches (due to shelter-in-place, I don’t have a place to wear this trend), geometric shape bags, and top handle satchels or totes.

The Givenchy Antigona is celebrating ten years, so it’s a fun bag to wear this year. My Chanel Boy bag takes care of the heavy chain trend, and of course Mansur Gavriel’s bags are always on pointe. I am wearing my Chloe Marcie because it fits the satchel trend, and it is also a fabulous casual bag for everyday use. Sometimes practical can be fabulous too 😉

If you are looking for classic bags with longevity, all of these bags have it! I have owned these bags for several years, and one bag, over a decade! The only new-ish bag is my Mansur Gavriel Cloud Clutch which I have had since late winter. Handbags rarely wear out, so it is always a good idea to invest in a handbag with a timeless vibe; that way you can pull it in and out of your closet. Investment dressing is always the way to go!

Which handbags do you plan to carry this season?

Fall 2020 shoe capsule wardrobe

Fall 2020 shoe capsule wardrobe from top left: grey stamped croc loafers / fuzzy slipper slides / snakeskin booties (current season here) / stamped croc square toe pumps / Gucci platform sneakers / black high heel booties (current season here) / Pictured below: black loafer slides (similar style under $150 here) /

It’s time to talk shoes!! Don’t we love shoes 🙂 The fall 2020 season is a season of comfort, practicality, and function. That being said, there is no reason we can’t rock the current shoe trends!

When it comes to shoes, fall 2020 is all about the rise of the square toe, stamped croc, the return of the lug sole (which I am skipping until winter), simple platform sneakers, and fabulous slippers. There is also a classic vibe in shoes; which brings back classic loafers, loafer pumps, and loafer slides.

While we all look at the current trends, and would love to rock them, sometimes we need to pick and choose in order to make our wardrobes work. This season, I am keeping things classic. I plan to rock the square toe, but on a simple pump. I am also re-wearing some shoes from previous seasons since they are either classic, or still on trend; such as platform sneakers, snakeskin boots, and slides.

The trends I am putting off for now include combat boots, lug sole loafers, log sole boots, and square toe sandals. I don’t really wear open toe in the fall, and I am not really in a lug sole mood; despite their emergence this season as an important trend. I want to keep my footwear simple and comfortable. My sneakers are super comfy, and of course these slippers will get a lot of use!

Boots are always comfortable, and these two pairs from last year are still on trend, and perfect to wear this autumn season. I invested in a new pair of loafers, since stamped croc is hotter than hot this season. These loafers will last several seasons since they are a classic style. Love that!

I’m excited to be able to re-wear so many shoes this season, and also have some variety to pair with my fall 2020 capsule wardrobe. When shopping your shoe closet for fall, look for classic styles such as loafers and neutral booties. If you have platform sneakers, rock them this season! Also, if you have any square toe pumps from last time they were hot, bring them back to the front of your closet.

What to invest in for fall 2020. If you don’t have shoes which fit into the current trends, I highly recommend investing in a pair of loafers, loafer slides, square toe pumps, platform sneakers, and fuzzy slippers. These are classic, or long lasting trends to look forward to for several seasons; if not years!
