I was looking back at my most recent shoe purchases and couldn’t help but notice a pattern forming in my closet. Lately, I’ve been really into simple designs with a little twist. Since I prefer to work a shoe around an outfit, rather than the other way around, I’ve been gravitating toward pairs with a neutral foundation. But I get a real kick (oh man, sweet pun) out of unexpected details like a delicate stitching, a glimmer of hardware, or a flash of animal print. What do you look for in a shoe?
