Summer To Fall Transition: Shoe Edition

Happy #fashionwednesday!! Today we are taking a little peek inside my closet to look at…SHOES! I am probably the world’s biggest shoe lover. I am obsessed with them. In my opinion, nothing quite brings an outfit together like the perfect pair of shoes. As we exit summer (I know — how did that happen, right?) it is time to think about transitioning our wardrobe a little bit. One of the biggest things to transition are shoes, of course! So here are 5 types of shoes you can carry over from summer to fall seamlessly. 


Summer To Fall Transition: Shoe Edition

Shoes are a key part of every outfit. They can make or break your look, so it’s important to choose the right pair. The other key part of buying the perfect pair of shoes is versatility. I personally like to get as many seasons as I can out of the shoes I buy, so let’s dive into this.

The Strappy Sandal.

Summer To Fall Transition: Shoe Edition

This shoe is PERFECT for summer, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be just as fabulous in fall, too. These gold sandals will transition well because they are a metallic, neutral shade (as opposed to like hot pink or something like that) and they have a chunky block heel. These shoes pair perfectly with white jeans and a chambray top, but they will also go with a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans and an oversized cardigan. 


The Open Toed Booties.

I love open toe booties. SO MUCH. They are STINKING CUTE. These work perfectly for both seasons as well! The open heel and toe makes it wearable for warmer months, while the solid leather look and tasseled zipper make it transitional for fall. Incorporating both styles into one shoe will allow you wear them July – October, no problem. Once it starts to get chilly and snowy, though, you may want to grab something with a closed toe.

The Glitter Slip Ons.

So I know that I say every shoe is my favorite…but these seriously are amazing. I get compliments EVERY TIME I wear them. They are sparkly and bright, and I actually wear them all year long. They’re fun with a white pencil skirt in the summer, with a jean jackets in the fall or with an oversized cream or pink sweater in the winter. These particular shoes were only $10 from Wet Seal, and to this day (over a year and half later) it’s the best shoe purchase I’ve ever made. You can hardly tell they’re worn (and I’ve worn them a LOT).

The Converse Classics.

This is obvious. These are a staple for every closet. I firmly believe that EVERY person should own a pair of white chucks. I constantly wear these with my overalls in the summer, and to transition to fall, all I’ve gotta do is throw on a red cardigan. They are comfortable and cute, and unless it’s raining or snowing, they pretty much work for most seasons. There are countless ways to style them, and I consider them a must-have for myself.

Cowboy Boots.

Confession time. I love cowboy boots. I really really do. I got these for Christmas a few years ago and they are such a go-to shoe for me all year round. In the summer, they are GORGEOUS with a red or white sundress, or ripped jeans. In the fall, they are obviously adorable with a boyfriend flannel of your choice. I would wear these every day from August-November if I could. I’m a fan of brown boots anyways but I think cowboy boots add that extra needed flair to spice up an outfit.

It’s so easy to put shoes on the back burner when deciding what you need for your wardrobe. HOWEVER. You don’t need to spend incredible amounts of money to get the look you need (remember my $10 Wet Seal STEAL?). I have tons of shoes, but trust me, it’s never enough.

Let me know in the comments below what shoes YOU carry through multiple seasons! Maybe I need to pick up a pair ASAP.
