I can assure you I am either thinking of shoes, buying new shoes or waiting for new shoes to arrive in the mail at any given moment in time. Right now, I'm waiting for two pairs of ALDO shoes to land on my doorstep. As this blog post will show you, I'm still thinking about shoes even though I have some on the way. Is there a shoe division of Shopaholics Anonymous? I might need to start one.
Vans have been a favorite footwear choice of mine for years, as some of my Outfit of the Day posts will prove. Vans epitomize California cool, which, if you can believe it, is a hard attribute to materialize. In sort of a shoe-Inception move, Vans created a California Collection. That's how you know these shoes are extra Californian. Sarcasm aside, this set of shoes has exquisite details and high-quality materials. I'm in love with these punchy prints that are only slightly subdued with an earthy color palette. You can wear these shoes with neutral-colored pieces and the complimenting apparel of the collection. Keep your look relaxed, natural and layered to give these California kicks the spotlight. Even if you're thousands of miles away from the state of sunshine, these shoes will all but make you a California native.
