      I'm really excited about the oxford trend for fall. I was in Macy's a couple weeks ago and was able to pick up a pair of black suede oxfords which will be perfect for those October/November months. As mentioned before, I'm pretty uncoordinated so anytime there's a shoe trend that doesn't involve 5 inch heels, I typically jump on board. Although the oxfords have a masculine feel to them, there are lots of ways you can dress them up or dress them down depending on your mood. Obviously pairing them with a comfortable boyfriend jean would be perfect but since these shoes have a masculine feel pairing them with some feminine pieces (think florals) would add a nice balance.

     I researched some oxfords in a variety of different styles and prices and came up with 6 pairs that I'm currently digging. The top 4 are a little more casual, but each have their own special touch. Since I'm a big navy fan I had to look for a brown oxford that I could pair with my navy wardrobe. I am a big fan of ALDO's shoes, I always find them really comfortable and the brown oxfords are cute and affordable. 
        The Nine West patent leather black oxfords with the bow ribbon would look really cute for a night out where you don't want to wear heels, because the patent leather still adds a dressy-feel. I would definitely pair them with a brightly colored dress or a black blazer. Of course if you're feeling brave and are looking to really make your shoes a statement piece, than you should definitely go for those Kate Spade black tipped oxford. They are pretty jazzy looking but sometimes you have to go out of your comfort zone. 

      For you heel lovers, I did pick out a couple heeled bootie oxfords that I can only dream about wearing. These shoes make me want to strut my stuff down the street, I feel like you would automatically turn into a bad ass the second you put them on. I really like how the heeled oxfords transition well from workday heel to after work drinks with friends heel. My mom has this great pair of black patent leather oxford pumps from Nine West that she calls her "nun shoes" because apparently nun's used to wear heeled oxfords back in the day.... but I'm more than happy to take that trend from them. Hallelujah! 

Are you into the Oxford trend?


  1. I love the shoes you bought! I used to wear oxfords all the time in high school, it was one of the senior privileges. But I really like the Oxford trend for the fall!


  2. OMG they remind me so much of saddle shoes, which I wore all through high school. I don't know if I will be able to pull it off without feeling 16 again haha.

  3. Love the shoes you got!xx
