Stylin' Mamma: Red

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

I love a red shoe.  Why wear black when you can add that interest that is red?

Okay, let's be honest.  I love a shoe shoe.  If it's a shoe, I'm at least going to consider it.  I may not adopt it (the goth platform boot, for example), and I may not adore it, but I'll consider anything shoe-related.  But for the purposes of this post, I love a red shoe, and more specifically, I love a red shoe with a pointy toe just peeping out of an otherwise basic or conservative trouser.

Not that these trousers are basic, no sir.  First of all, how comfy do they look?  Yet how workplace appropriate?

A part of me (the mom part) is digging this season's take on comfy-classy.  Pajama- or active-wear-inspired styles are pretty much a slam-dunk for a gal who yearns to be elegant but (let's face it) spends an inordinate amount of time looking for lost Legos and water bottles that have rolled under the seats of the car.  So you can imagine how I swooned for Old Navy's embellished sweatshirts, how I raced to Fourth & Market and snapped one up to wear to early Fall soccer practice with black jersey pants.  

For a busy day, an oversized clutch has room to spare.  And the good news is, with a neckline like that you don't have to overthink your jewelry: a couple of stacked rings (here and here) by the stylist behind Damsel in Dior ought to do the trick.

Look at you: the Lady Who Lunches, the Lady Who Lounges, the Lady Who Lugs kids and bags and snacks all over town...Hey, I'm digging those red shoes!
