Your shoes tell the world everything about your style, and can elevate even the simplest outfit. I want to introduce you to Pamela of lifashionablefoodie.com and Instagram @li_fashionablefoodie, who always elevates her outfits with gorgeous footwear. When you’re wondering how to make your daily outfits look more polished the rest of this season, you can find inspiration with her choice of summer shoes.
One word: heels. Heels are hot, and they always make an outfit look more polished. Pamela has perfected this tactic. Whether she’s wearing a pump in a bold color or a cut-out bootie in a neutral, her shoes always emphasize her outfits and make them look extremely put together.
Pamela admits that when she was a brand new mom, she didn’t focus as much attention on her personal style. But once she and her husband decided to make date nights a regular event, and she had a reason to get dressed up, her love of fashion came back into her life.
“When I first became a mother, fashion took a backseat,” she says. “My days were spent at home nursing or preparing bottles, changing diapers and running to Gymboree classes.”
“None of these events were very glamorous and I didn’t really have a reason to dress up. Unfortunately, I don’t have any family members living locally that could help babysit, so my date nights took a brief hiatus. Once my daughter turned 6 months, my husband and I decided to hire a babysitter to watch her once she was sleeping. I started dressing up again for date nights and felt like not only a mom but a woman as well.”
“To any new mothers out there, I cannot recommend date nights enough. It is very easy to become overtaken by the role of being a mom but equally important is taking care of yourself. When I throw on a great outfit, do my hair and make-up, and finish the look with a great pair of shoes, I feel completely transformed and ready to face the world.”
She’s ready to take on the world, indeed. Check out her array of gorgeous summer shoes, below.
