It’s been awhile since a did a brand based shoe round up but my new Boden catalog arrived over the weekend and I’ve been drooling over ALL the shoes!  My closet always has at least two pairs of Boden shoes in it (typically something colorful like my orange ones above).   While I was drooling over the shoes in the catalog, I also eyed a few dresses and skirts to wear them with!!  Here are all the Boden beauties that caught my eye with some styling ideas on what to pair them with for Shoesday with Boden.  #NotSponsored

Shoesday with Boden

Adrianna Heels

These are so classic and gorgeous.  I’m loving the fawn rose color but it comes in four other choices that are all good!  The ribbon on the heel is classic Boden attention to detail.  #DetailsMatter

I would pair these stunners with an equally stunning dress.  This green dress fits the bill with perfect styling in a beautiful color.  It also comes in a Pretty Woman-esk navy or brown polka dot.  #kPrettyWomanSongNowStuckInMyHead

Clarissa Midi Dress - Highland Green

Florrie Kitten Heel Slingbacks

Kitten heels are still trending for Spring and Summer and these cuties are the perfect find!  The also come in four other colors if red and navy doesn’t work for you.  #NavyGirl

I would continue the Americana love and pair this with navy and white stripes.  This is really separates as a dress (which you know I also love).  #TwoAsOne

Rebecca Midi Skirt - Navy and Ivory Stripe

Flavina Mid Heel

Similar to my blue Boden shoes but with a ribbon tie rather than a buckle, these come in four prefect colors but I was partial to the green.  #GetLucky

Play up the green even more with this navy dress trimmed in green and white. #WinningStripes

Sylvia Knitted Dress - Navy

Hazel Heel

I purchased a pair of woven heels from Zara earlier this Spring but I’m loving the deep brown hue of these even more.  They also come in Navy.  #SummerLoving

I would keep the Summer vibe going by pairing these with a jumpsuit that has received more than 190 positive reviews!!  #YesJumpsuit

Clarissa Jumpsuit - Navy

Melody Loafers

These Gucci like loafers come in four colors but I am really loving this rose color!  #PickPink

Colorblock the loafers with a bright blue skirt and either pair with a silk blouse or add another layer of color for head-to-toe color blocking.  #WearAllTheColor

Theodora Pleated Skirt - Cobalt

Blouse (10 color choices) | Skirt (5 color choices)

Henrietta Flats

I’ve been eyeing these ones for awhile.  They also come in a heel and four color choices.  #PickPinkAgain

Keep the color clashing going by pairing them with a pink pleated skirt and red top!!  #ColorClashCuteness

Kristen Pleated Skirt - Strawberry Split

Margot Heels

If you saw the last two weeks of sandal round-ups (neutral and colorful) then you know that Margot block heeled sandals are the exact type of sandal I’ve been looking for.  They come in three gorgeous colors including this on-trend bright dijon.  #GoGold

To style this beauty I would opt for something contrasting to really make the shoes pop.  I love the color of this blue linen dress but it also comes in two other colors or prints.

Tori Midi Dress - Delave

Primrose Sandal

These Primrose sandals are adorable.  I’m always on the hunt for a good navy sandal and these are the best I’ve seen this season … aside from the the gorgeous Tibi ones that I am absolutely in love with that keep showing up on my Instagram feed … the Boden version is much more budget friendly, however.  #SaveBig

I would pair these with a flirty dress to match the vibe of the sandals.  #FunForSummer

Octavia Jersey Midi Dress - Multi Stripe

There you have it … my top eight shoe picks for Shoesday with Boden (and how to style them)!!

I’ve got #momduty today. What this really means is that I have to take the birthday boy for his annual check-up (and shots). Insert all the tears. And since there will be tears I am wearing the softest, snugglest sweater I can find so that he can cozy up like he is still two years old when it’s over. I’m not sure who cries more at these appointments – the boy getting the shots or the mom watching the boy get shots. There is also the inevitable realization that my ‘little’ boy is now seven. I might be crying already. #BlinkOfAnEye #plaidstyle #RagandBone #Tibi #ThursdayStyle #dressingformyday #dressedforsuccess #boden Update: My brave boy whined about the shot all the way to the doctor but did NOT cry and after said the appointment was awesome! I, of course, recorded this to use against him next year. #plaidstyle #wednesdaystyle #whatiworetoday #whatiworetowork #mylooktoday #realoutfit #chictopia #momentsofchic #chicworkchick #9to5chic #9to5style
