Guest Post from Londyn

Today we are bringing you a guest post from Londyn, of BlogFashion—a great blog where she writes about fashion and SHOES! She daily posts pictures of her ensemble with some great advice about how to make the most of your wardrobe by mixing and matching and what looks good with what. You should definitely check it out. She has a lot of fun with it. And she loves vintage as much as I do—which is what drew me in.

I discovered her blog through a comment she left on ShoeLove, and it turns out that Chris had already been frequently reading another fashion blog—What I Wore Today—whose writer is a friend of Londyn's! Small world!

Anyway, after perusing Londyn's entire blog a couple of weeks ago, I found that she has a great collection of shoes that she writes about from time to time. Since she seemed to appreciate ShoeLove and seemed to have such great taste in shoes, I thought it would be fun to have her do a guest post. So she agreed, and I'm so glad. You're sure to love her shoes below, as well as the great advice she has for shoe lovers everywhere!

Shoe Love…. Ahhh….. What do those words mean to a woman who loves shoes as much as I do…..?!?

I have to say I recently stumbled over the Shoe Love blog and am so happy to know that there are other people out there as much in love with shoes as I am!

As I looked through this delightful blog – it made me think about my own shoe collection and specific shoe style. I have often heard the phrase that “Accessories are the best way to show personality in an outfit.” Shoes, for me, are most often that accessory.

I think my shoe wardrobe (all 110 pairs and counting…) could be broken down into 4 basic categories: 1) Chic, 2) Classic, 3) Trendy, and 4) Comfy.

It is my hope and belief that every woman should have (at least!) 2 pair in each category.

Here are a few of mine.

1. The quality or state of being stylish; fashionableness.
2. Sophistication in dress and manner; elegance.

Old Navy

Nicole Miller

Stewart Weitzman



1. Basic; fundamental: the classic rules of warfare.
2. Of the first or highest quality, class, or rank: a classic piece of work.
3. Serving as a standard, model, or guide.



Nine West

Newport News

1. Of, in, or pertaining to the latest trend or style.
2. Following the latest trends or fashions; up-to-date.



Giani Bini


Nine West

Anne Klein


1. Producing or affording physical comfort, support, or ease.
2. A state of ease and satisfaction of bodily wants, with freedom from pain and anxiety.
3. Being in a state of physical or mental comfort; contented and undisturbed; at ease.


New York Transit

Hope you have enjoyed looking at some of my collection!

(Yes, Londyn—we did!! Thank you.)

More pretty shoes from Payless

I personally adore those minty green peep toes with the tiny black bows (translation: I'm buying them the first chance I get). But there's plenty more to choose from at Payless, which seems to impress me more and more these days. Get them all here.

Start 'em young

My sister Sam bought these mary jane baby socks as a gift for my cousin Quinn's wife, Jonneal, for her baby shower this weekend. Everyone oohed and ahhed over them, and thought they were just the neatest thing in the world. Where were these when I was a little tyke???

Anyhow, you can get them here, or just google "mary jane socks" and you'll find lots of retailers that carry this adorable footwear.

My trusty new Sportos

I just simply adore these waterproof boots by Sporto. I was in need of some sturdy, warm boots—yes, I actually NEEDED boots, not just WANTED them—and found these wonderfully cute yet functional boots that suited my needs. And the perfect test drive? Our annual Christmas tree trip yesterday, which involved lots of hiking, snow, and freezing temps. These beauties performed flawlessly. Not only did my feet stay toasty and dry—a first for me, ever, with winter boots—but they repelled dirt and moisture like no one's business, and looked super cute to boot (ha ha). My feet felt great all day, and even after a long hike through a snowy forest, I had no aching arches or tired toes to speak of.

Needless to say, I was thoroughly impressed and kept repeatedly saying to no one in particular, "I can't believe it! I have never had boots that have kept my feet so warm and dry in my life, ever! I love these boots!" People kept giving me weird looks, but that's okay. When I really like something and it exceeds my expectations, I like to share with the world.

I have the pretty black pair you see above, but they also come in a rich brown and a gorgeous winter white. I'd suggest ordering a size larger because your toes will rub the tips otherwise. I normally wear an 8-8.5, but I got a 9 and they're perfect. Plus this way you can layer socks if need be. You can try them on at DSW, but they don't seem to carry them online in their store. However, I've given you an online site (Planet Shoes) with the cheapest prices and free shipping, too, so check 'em out. Enjoy!

(P.S. Zappos also carries these boots, albeit at a higher price, but they offer a pretty taupe color as well.)
