One of the best trends in footwear had to be to comeback of the round toe. Comfortable, classic and oh-so-darn-cute, the round toe pump is a great addition to any work wardrobe thanks to its versatility. This black number in suede with croco-embossed leather and metallic trim looks fantastic with skirts, pants and dresses; it's simple enough for daytime and dressy enough for date time. Thanks to Aerosoles' patented cushioning, you can survive through both without killing your feet!
The handbag: ILI Handbag 6075 in Black
No outfit is complete without a great bag to match your shoes, and for work, it's no different. The great thing about this particular handbag is that it's structured and simple enough to convince people at work to take you seriously, but at the same time sophisticated and stylish enough to complete any outfit without looking like your granny's bag. The size is also great for toting whatever you need for that commute.
FOR THE EVENING:
The footwear: J. Renee Bauble in Ocean Blue
An evening at your favorite restaurant or lounge is never complete without a bit of sparkle. If you can achieve that and be comfortable at the same time, I say go for it! I know I can, in these stunning Ocean Blue leather pumps with a gorgeous jewel detail on the front. Pair these with a matching cocktail dress, or some pants and a cute gold-hued camisole and you're good to go!
The handbag: J. Renee Handbag 5588 in Ingot Gold
Playing off of the gold tones in the jewel on the Bauble, I love this deep gold J. Renee evening bag that's perfect for the evening. The cute little bow adds a feminine touch to the clean lines of this handbag, while the velvety fabric adds that dressy feel to it. The bold blue of the shoe and the metallic hue of the bag complement each other perfectly.
FOR A NIGHT OUT:
The footwear: Via Spiga Solar in Gold
This strappy metallic sandal, with its delicate straps and comfortable ankle strap screams hot summer nights. I love the light gold finish that doesn't border on garish like some metallics that are out there now. Pair these sexy sandals with a skirt or a dress and paint the town red!
The handbag: Marlo Handbag A31425 in Gold
Since no metallic sandal is complete with out a matching metallic handbag, this Marlo handbag does the job. As simple as they come, this clutch with a shoulder strap features 2 inside pockets and a flip lock closure in the front.
FOR THE WEEKEND
The footwear: Blink Venus in White
After a long week, the last thing you want to be is uncomfortable, which is why ballet flats are perfect for kicking back and relaxing. I like to keep my shoes simple, like these by Blink in white leather (contrary to popular belief, it is perfectly alright to wear white after labor day as long as you look cute). I like wearing mine with a pair of jeans or capris, but you can also wear them with skirts.
The handbag: The SAK Pink Ribbon Sparkle Hobo in Natural Sparkle
As if being the perfect weekend bag wasn't enough, this adorable hobo bag by The SAK is part of their annual breast cancer fundraising collection. A sparkly knit handbag with rhinestone details and metallic leather trim, the Sparkle Hobo enables you to look trendy and stylish while helping a good cause.
FOR THE ROCKSTAR IN YOU
The footwear: Harley-Davidson Natalya in black
Who said Harley-Davidson is all about the motorcycles? They're also about indredibly hot footwear! This fullgrain leather boot with a Leeward wrapped heel is great with a pair of jeans and the right leather jacket for a look that screams rockster, but a feel that screams hipster.
The handbag: Elka Pleats 'N' Treats F51558 in black
The other half of a match made in rockstar heaven, this pleated faux leather bag with pleats and studs looks and feels like a dream. With its unique design, it can give any casual outfit an edgy feel without going over the edge.
