Well Happy Wednesday my loves!
Only 2 more days left in the work week and I'm hella excited. This past 3-day weekend just didn't seem to be enough for me.
There are some pretty exciting things going on in the blogosphere today; for one Marion over at MarionBerryStyle is hosting her monthly trend challenge. I'm also hooking up with Laura at ALittleBitOfLaquer for Work It Wednesday.
This season I'm really into oxfords. I just don't feel up to putting on heels everyday so they are my go-to fashion item. Last week, I expressed 5 reasons why I love these English brogues in Part I of the 'Why I Love Men's Shoes' series.
If you missed Part I, don't fret...view it here!
Today I want to share with you the remaining 5 reasons why these babies will be the first shoes that I grab for after getting dressed.
REASON #6: They're courageously colorful. This yellowish/rare gold hue immediately caught my eye. As they did everyone else's. I hate when people don't understand your style so they find everything negative to say to express their huge dislike for something that you have on. I never get dressed to please others-that's exactly why it's called personal style right!? Anyhow, I figured that though this color is bold and bright, I could pair it with the many neutral hues that I have so as to make for a great statement piece.
REASON #7: They're very versatile. I love that you can pull off so many different looks by pairing them with skinnies, boyfriend jeans, and also shorts.
REASON #8: They have plenty of personality. Need I say more- these brogues have a mind of their own. They speak volumes of 'effortless chic' without saying much at all.

REASON #9: They're some kinda stylish. They're classy on men; sexy on women and they come in a variety of different styles. Whether you like high heels, flats, or even sneakers-oxfords undoubtedly have a style to match your flava!
REASON #10: They're freaking fancy. Over the weekend I paired my oxfords with a flirty skirt and I felt like a doll. Follow me on instagram (@sherockwell) for updates on that outfit. I also love the fact that they can be dazzled up and worn with party dresses, tuxedo pants, maxi skirts, and blazers to make for a more sophisticated look.
I could go on and on with reasons why I love these shoes but I think the 10 points I listed are more than enough. Maybe I will make this a regular series highlighting different things in my closet that I love, similar to the 'I Really Love My' series that they feature in People Style Watch Magazine.
How do you feel about oxfords this season?
Are they hot or NOT!?
Thanks for reading.
