If there is a season for shoes that just makes me smile it is Holiday shoes.  Tartan and glitter … yes, please.  Velvet and embellishments … the more the merrier.  So much SWOON factor.  My current Holiday Shoes collection is rapidly approaching more than the number of events I can wear them to, but I fail to see the issue.  #BeautifulShoesAreNeverAProblem

I’ve grouped the Holiday Shoes collections into three categories with a sampling of silhouettes and price points in each.  There is Velvet, Sparkle and Tartan.  I also included more than a few outfits that I would wear with all these beautiful shoes!  Most of the shoes I selected come in at least two color ways and some in so many more!

And while we are on the ‘fancy‘ shoes topic can we take a moment to talk about shoes for weddings (because most of these will work their too).  If I see one more question about wearing booties to a wedding, I may cry.  Unless the wedding is in a barn … in winter … and both the bride AND groom are wearing denim … then don’t.  Just don’t.  There are so many better options.  If budget is the issue, I made it my mission to find several Under $50 pairs (some are less than $35) and they are all clearly marked.  #NoExcuses  I also included a few investment pairs if you want to splurge.  I have worn my velvet ankle tie shoes for at least four years worth of special events and I know they are good for at least another four.  #WorthTheSplurge

Happy Holiday (or wedding guest) shoe hunting!!

Velvet Holiday Shoes

There is nothing more luxurious than velvet for the holidays!!  I’m loving all the shades of blue this season but there are tons of other fun colors.  They come in every silhouette you can imagine tall or flat.  Just try and pick one!!  I picked the Velvet Chelsea Bootie if you are curious!  #TooFun

Holiday Shoes with Sparkle

If you have been reading this blog any length of time then you know I love shiny objects!  Weather it is studs or jewels or simply glitter it is all a yes in my book.  I already have these glitter booties so my pick here was the Embellished Cheetah but I also tossed in the Fishnet Pumps for fun since they were such a bargain!! #AlreadyAtMyHouse #Under50Win

Outfit Ideas

I feel like embellished pumps are meant to be dressed up but the booties and flats could go either way!  Here are a few looks I plan on using for my holidays!

LBD | Hoop Earrings | Purse | Fishnet Pump

For both of these next outfits, depending on how fancy I wanted to feel I would wither wear a black turtleneck or cami or even a T-shirt if I was keeping it casual.

Circle Earrings | Plaid Jacket | Flower Earrings | Tulle Skirt | Velvet Crops | Quilted Purse | Embellished Cheetah | Studded Loafer

Plaid Holiday Shoes

I had to get the Mary Jane’s but @HauteNavy sent me the D’Orsay flats and those are equally good.  Such an easy way to up your Holiday look with minimal effort!  #Done

Outfit Ideas

I really love the Tartan dressed up but for a more casual look these all pair perfectly with denim.  And for the fanciest of all outfits go full red satin for a formal holiday look.  #Yesss
