Why I Love Men's Shoes: Top 10 Reasons (Part I)

Happy Thursday lovelies!

I hope you all are having a great week thus far. It's almost Friday so I'm super excited about that.

Today's post was roused by this inspiration board and my new-found love for English brogues-better known as OXFORDS!

Let me tell you the reasons why they make my days complete...

REASON #1: They're cutely comfy. I love that I can still be stylish and 'appear' to be dressed up with these babies. They are great for those excruciatingly long work days when heels are not an option.

Blazer-Thrifted (American Eagle)

REASON #2: They're fabulously feminine-even though they were inspired by menswear. They can be pulled off with with a variety of different 'fits and never lose their feminine touch. I particularly like to cuff the bottom of my pants to show off the shoe and all of its beauty.

Brogues-Dollhouse

REASON #3: They're pretty preppy. I  have always been drawn to the 'preppy' feel of button ups and cardigans so being attracted to these oxfords was a no brainer. They have the ability to make any look appear clean and polished.



Sweater-Thrifted (Old Navy)

REASON #4: They're totally timeless. Season in and season out, oxfords will remain doable. Wear them without socks in the spring and summer and when transitioning to fall and winter the addition of tights and/or leggings will keep you warm.




REASON #5: They're incredibly inexpensive and if you know me well enough, then you would know that I like to shop logically and wisely-especially for trends like this which for some,  may be considered to be out of style within a month's time. I purchased these oxfords last year for $7 during a season-end clearance sale.

This is Part 1 of a 2 part post.

Stay tuned next week for more reasons why I love oxfords.

Thanks for reading.
A very HUGE THANK YOU to all of my new followers and subscribers.

XOXOXOXO

  1. Yes! Oxfords are super cute! I wish I had more. I have a pair I bought from Zara last summer and I am highly annoyed that I have not been able to find one of the shoes for the last 7 months. I have no clue where that shoe is....LOL!

  7. Love it! :) Here are my reasons #5 and #6. Mens shoes are made better and since I have big feet so it's hard to find women's oxfords that fit me anyway.
