I enjoy minimalist fashion blogs that review their wardrobes and aspirations for less items with more versatility. Behold my minimalist, nerdy streak as I spring clean and stock take! I find that multiples of some styles are needed with all the walking I do. Some of these shoes won’t be replaced so I expect to remain at 15 or less pairs on average.
Two are on probation for their lack of comfort or versatility. I wear heels less than 10 times a year so don’t need any more than two pairs really. In cooler conditions I adore black heels with black opaque tights and in warmer weather I like the continual tones of tan wedges on bare legs.
I acquired a few pairs of sandals for this summer as it’s a part of my wardrobe that always lacks and results in me unable to wear my dresses.* The ecco pair is really good quality for longer walks. The others are cheaper for events and parties and local cafes.
* I want to wear dresses more as I struggle to find shorts in my desired style and fit nowadays.
Classic loafers and street sneakers are staples for my fussy feet. I love them.
I need to replace my well-worn cross-trainers soon. I’m thinking of some fun coloured ones – blue or green?! I can crunch over anything in the 4WD shoes. It also means I’m less aware of the ground to help me navigate so I choose the right times to wear them.
The winter boots are back in their boxes until next year. This season I wore my brown ones most days and my cream boots only once. I feel that they’re too young for a 31 year old (?) so effectively they are on probation too.
How’s your spring wardrobe cleaning or autumn preparations for winter going? Anyone want to share their shoe stock take with me?
PS. I asked my husband to proofread and as he reached the end he sighed! Not exactly riveting subject matter for him, but I do hope it was interesting for some of you!
