Spring 2016 Wardrobe Basics Update: Shoes

With the wardrobe clothes basics all covered here and here, it’s time to focus on one’s shoedrobe for Spring 2016. Get the shoes you need to see you through Spring and beyond.

Of course, we would would like to have a shoedrobe like Khloe’s:

aka the unlimited options shoe closet that is Khloe K’s

but really, five basic pairs should be able to see you through the next season…and them some. Now I realise some babes love heels waaaaaay more than I do, so this edit may be a bit flat (ha ha, shoe pun right there) for you but this is what I’m loving and sneaking into my shoedrobe right now. As a sneaky aside, the next post in this mini series is the on trend Spring pieces which may or may not include a couple of extra pairs #shhhhh I’ve headed straight to The Iconic for this edit, because they really have a massive array with all price points covered and their delivery, let’s just say, you want it tomorrow, ok then! (in most cases!).


the basic white kick:

the cult Stan Smiths, worn by bloggers & the fash pack alike, are now available in all sorts of colourways so if this original green is not to your tastes, try pink, navy or all all white $130

the black slide/mule:

This Suri Leather Mule (& others similar) is THE shoe for the season. Taking their cues from the fur lined Gucci loafer that is on every fash bloggers foot at the moment, this simple, furless version goes with simply everything. Buy it. Now. $119.95

the block heel mule:

Working with everything from shorts, culottes, denim and pants to skirts and dresses, this Edith Buckle Mule (also & equally fab in white) is just $59.95 and can and will be worn to death by me

the platform espadrille:

Soludos is a brand adored worldwide & their espadrille quality & comfort is second to none (IMO) these tan leather platform babies will look absolutely FAB with (faux) tanned pins & your denim cutoffs, cropped jeans, skirts or any skirts, shorts or dresses for that matter. A rad basic spring/summer shoe for $149

the sporty slide:

whilst the Fenty Puma Fur Slide is THE slide of now, quirky statement slides are also having their moment in the sun & these fun Schutz Follow Me slides are no different. Wear them anywhere & everywhere to inject some fun into your day 😉 $89.95


These five basic shoes should see you through nearly every day and occasion for Spring…if your life is anything like mine anyways! I will add a couple of others into the on trend edit that will be out in a couple of days for those days you want to change things up or that seasonal date night you have planned. Because we all only have a date once every few months yeah? Or is that just us?! Every time we plan something, one or both of us end of inviting others along turning it into a catch up/group date night which is sometimes just as perfect and needed. Although now we have found some babysitters, it is a little easier to get out of the house.

The pic in the header is via pinterest but Kmart have this beaut version that has just arrived in store:

kmart a frame bookshelf
A Frame Bookshelf $49

which will hold all the above shoes and then some plus you could hand your hats on the ends! Or be a really clever cookie and stick some 3M hooks on for necklaces, sunnies etc. Your accessory wardrobe all easily accessed and looking beautiful <3

Do you agree with my chosen five? What would you change/take out/sub in? xx
