shoes I heart right now

I've always been a girl about her shoes. Seriously. I once bought a pair of 7" platforms with a chunky raffia heel that looked like a woven Easter egg as a freshman in high school just because they were on sale at Nordstrom and I convinced myself "I would totally wear them....somewhere". In the small town I grew up, you didn't find a place to wear heels like that. Unless it's a high school sports banquet. And I wasn't about to eat shit in front of the whole town walking up just to accept a participation award for being a jv cheerleader. Now, maybe if it was for varsity soccer senior year.... 

The only chance I wore those heels was every time I wanted to wear them, I put them on, danced around my room, and before I broke both ankles, I decided that my pink patten flats or low-top chucks were a safer idea (in terms of social norms and my well being). 

Now, I actually wear what makes me feel 100. (I'd probably still decide against the raffia heels because I would seriously break a bone wearing those out, who am I kidding with my clumsiness!) I wanted to share some shoes that I'd wear to feel totally FiRe or maybe buy just because I had to own them. 

 

 Always leave room for a pair of suede ankle boots...

 I've always loved a kickass pair of biker boots. I love the sole on these.

 Cowgirl boots are a staple of mine. I like that these are more of a riding boot, which I usually don't go for. But these, are modern and cool without being stale.

 Long-time love for Loq's simple yet beautifully architectural heel, so of course I love this leather strappy number.
