First off, apologies for the grainy photo. My camera is starting to act up, and it may be time for a new one. This was the best shot I could get with it. Stay tuned for a camera update later this month! Now, onto spring shoes!

My spring 2021 shoe capsule wardrobe is here! This spring, life is on the casual side. I put my high heels in the closet, as well as my wedge espadrilles, in the hopes of pulling them out this summer when things open up a bit more. Here in California, we are still somewhat locked down. We can enjoy outdoor dining, and outdoor activities, but everything that is open is on the casual side, and requires footwear to match. Shoes I can walk in are a must! So heels and wedges are stored for next season. Waiting for those vaccines!

Spring shoes for the 2021 season are a little bit more fun than they have been in previous years. We are looking at the puffy pillow trend, which started with handbags, and has now moved to shoes; and we are also looking at the square toe. Put these two trends together, and your footwear is fun!

I normally prefer neutral shoes, but for spring 2021, I decided one pair of fun, yellow shoes was a necessity. It’s been such a stressful, and crazy, twelve months, so adding a little bit of fun to our wardrobes this season will brighten the day as we look towards the light at the end of the tunnel.

I love this puffy yellow pair of slides. They are comfy and soft, yet offer a little bit of height with the block heel. I can walk around in them, and kick them off easily in the car. If you are only buying one pair of shoes this spring season, buy something fun!

If you have been reading my blog, you know all about comfort shoes for spring! I love these comfy slides, and espadrilles are also slipper-like on my feet. These are my two go-to comfort shoes this spring season. I also have a pair of Birkenstocks, but I tend to wear them around the house. They are well-loved.

Espadrilles, and any pair of open toe shoes, will easily carry us all into the summer season. These are good investments to wear for spring, and throughout the warm weather seasons. Closed toe slides will also carry us through fall. This makes slides a great investment shoe for 2021! Love that!

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!

cozy slippers holiday gift ideas

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 shoe capsule wardrobe

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!
