I actually came across a photo of these suede Topshop boots when they were sold out and instantly became obsessed with them. I knew I had to have them, so I checked the site every day until a pair that I guess someone returned had become available in my size. They arrived and were everything I imagined them to be!

Simply put: Alexandre Birman's tie sandals make me happy. They're simple without being boring, so comfortable, and if you ask me, beautiful! I want them in every color, but for now, these more than suffice.
The shoe: Alexandre Birman Patty Knot d’Orsay Sandal ($595)
While I was hesitant about buying these pre-distressed sneakers, I'm so glad I did, because I wear them every weekend (and even to work, when I can get away with it!) My go-to move is pairing them with glitter socks because, well, why not?
The shoes: Golden Goose Low-Top Trainers ($530)
These boots are the perfect color combo and heel height for wearing with anything from jeans to a midi dress from day to night.
The shoes: Isabel Marant Danae Snake-Effect Leather Ankle Boots ($915)
This is another pair of shoes I obsessed over without ever having seen them in person. I had a hunch they'd be amazing, and it paid off, because thanks to the low heel and neither-gold-nor-silver metallic details, they compliment any outfit and thus, I wear them constantly. Plus, they remind me of Alexa Chung.
Similar style: Miu Miu Decolette Patent Jewel-Heel Pump ($885)
Another low-heeled favorite? These Barneys New York brand sandals are my 24/7 shoes for spring and summer. They perfectly complement everything from jeans to jorts to dresses.
Similar style: Barney’s New York Crisscross-Ankle-Strap Sandals ($295)
Silver, shiny, and ankle-tie bows… I feel extra ladylike when I wear these pretty flats.
The shoes: Bionda Castana Denni Lace Up Flats ($725)
You caught me: I've got a thing for shoes with adorable ankle ties.
Similar style: Aquazzura Sexy Thing Suede Heels ($565)
I love wearing these Nike sneakers when I travel!
The shoes: Nike Juvenate ($85) in White/Pure Platinum
I thought these guys would be a one-and-done wear after NYE, but I've actually found plenty of ways to work the fancy heels into my wardrobe.
The shoes: Topshop Reese Feather Sandal ($90)
When I want to update a simple outfit, I throw on these printed heels.
Similar style: Loeffler Randall Pari Pumps ($350)
My love for these boots has been a slow burn. My colleague Nicole Akhtarzad actually was the one who encouraged me to buy them. Now I'm obsessed with the square toe and vague bowling shoes vibe.
The shoes: Marni Suede Ankle Boots ($602)
I've always found that a black-and-brown combination is supremely versatile, even when it's a very specific print like these Valentino sandals.
The shoes: Valentino Covered Printed Leather Sandals ($538)
Leather laces, you have my heart. The two-tone feature is fun, too. Side note: Apparently the insoles in these are supposed to form to your feet like Birkenstocks.
The shoes: Feit Hand Sewn High Tops ($660)
These are my most special shoes, and they surprisingly go with more outfits than you'd think. I like that they have a Marie Antoinette feel but still look completely modern.
Just when you think you've seen every iteration of a mule possible, leave it up to Proenza Schouler to come up with something fantastic. I love everything about these, from the mixed metals to the fringe.
The shoes: Proenza Schouler Leather Fringe Banded Mule ($602)
Between the interesting long vamp and the chunky heel, I love these for a standard pump alternative. Be forewarned, though: The heel is actually shaped like a horseshoe, and depending on the flooring, the clacking sometimes sounds like a Clydesdale!
The shoes: Acne Studios Alvara Pump ($434)
