You should be well aware of my mission to help you multitask your closet (more on that Thursday).  But along with that mission, I am also on a quest to introduce you to new brands (starting with shoes).  This will be the first #shoesday (among many more to come) that will highlight just one brand – perhaps one you haven’t tried before.  The first brand in this new format will be Linea Paolo.  It started with these cuties that I ordered last fall. #PopOfPurple

This pop of color was perfect with the darker tones of Fall and Winter.  These shoes have also held up well and I’ve become a fan of the brand.   So much of a fan that I ordered three more pairs of shoes of varying styles (I fell in love with about twenty) to compare.  I wanted to confirm their sizing and quality were consistent across the brand.  Guess what?  I can indeed confirm that their fit is consistent and TTS (I ordered my usual nine in all four pairs).  The quality is also top notch.  My original suede pair was great and the three new pairs all appear to be of a consistent quality. #QualityIsKey

My love for the brand justified, I also opted to style the three new pairs and to have some fun with the shoes!!  I mean if you can’t have some fun what’s the point!!  #AlwaysHaveFun

LINEA PAOLO Valerie Pointy Toe Pump

My favorite of the three new pairs that I ordered is actually this simple little number.  It is a slight upgrade from my original pair with a little heel and some studs to take it to the to the next level.  #Literally

These are such as easy way to upgrade your classic black work pants.  The heel is minimal for those wanting something low but high enough to notice you are not wearing flats.

For styling I opted to play up the studs with a coordinating brown jacket and animal print belt.  If you aren’t a fan of all black simply change out the base layers for the color of your choice.  The shoes also come in off-white and pale grey making your color choices for pairing endless.  #Endless

Parke Blazer | Leopard Belt (similar) | MM Lafleur Shell  | Oshima Pants | Valerie Pump

This is look is very easy to recreate because it is all closet staples (or should be).  The Parke Blazer comes in tons of colors and is always available from J.Crew.  My base pieces are from MM.Lafleur.

LINEA PAOLO  Cecilia Slingback Pump

You know my love for studs so off course I had to try these!!  They actually come in five different color choices but I loved the black and white mix.  The strap of pink was simply a bonus.  They also make a flat version that is very similar if you aren’t a heels person.  #HeelsGirl

To style these I really wanted to play up the pink strap.  I apologize because the lighting in my kitchen shows neither the pink strap nor my pink shirt.  #TrustMe  I opted for a classic button down (more on that this coming Thursday paired with a not-so-classic leather pencil skirt to match the edginess of the shoes.  I should have added my black leather belt as well but I didn’t think about it until I saw the photos after.  #AlwaysEditing

COS Button Down | Faux Leather Pencil Skirt | Cecilia Pump

Since my blouse is currently only available in white, I opted to recreate the look using a darker blouse with one of the other pump color choices.  You could also pair the flat with a midi leather skirt for an equally adorable look.

LINEA PAOLO Darcy II Genuine Calf Hair Slingback Flat

For my last pair, I opted for a slingback flat.  How cute is the little bow on the side.  It also comes in three solid colors.  Or for even more choice they make a heeled version of this shoe which comes in TEN color choices.  #StillAHeelsGirl

For this pair I wanted the black and white theme to continue from head to toe.  I chose this Ann Taylor camp shirt from last Summer’s Capsule Wardrobe.  The classic black and white stripe is not currently available but the current stripe version would be even cuter. #AlwaysAvailable
