Keeping the Dogs Happy

And when I say keeping the dogs happy... I mean my feet. Along with buying a new house, I have had a change in my job. I am spending a lot of time out and about rather than at my desk. In honor of this, I bought some new shoes. If I wasn't an advocate of Marshall's before, I would be now.

I bought these Naturalizer Akin's for like $29.99

I found them here on Zappos for $74.95.

These shoes have been perfect for 3 straight days of lots of walking. They look cute under suit pants, with a skirt, and I am trying out cropped pants tomorrow (I think).

I am undecided about the other pair. I also came across a pair of very similar Naturalizer shoes for a similar price. They felt like sneakers when I put them on! But they were white. I am not sure how much use I would get out of the white shoes. Do you wear white shoes? What do you wear them with? What don't you wear them with? Can you dress them up with a suit? HELP!

I only own white sandles, but I'm tempted to buy white pumps, I just need to find the right ones. I know some bloggers have white shoes and I've seen them wear them and I'm still not convinced they are for me, but I'm really tempted to give them a try.

Let me know if you decide to get them, would love to see how you rock them!

Thanks for reviewing these, I was just eyeing them last week. Same thing - looking for some basic black COMFY shoes for work. All mine are way too tall to be comfortable for a long period of time. Love Zappos - might get these!

On white shoes - I don't have any, but I'm sure they'd be versatile depending on your wardrobe. I worry about scuffs with light shoes. Actually I do have a pair of white wedges with a cork heel and wear them a lot with dresses that have white in them.

Lovin' your blog!

I like the idea of white shoes, and I've bought white shoes in the past... but I can never manage to actually leave the house wearing them. I dunno, I'm weird sometimes.

Loving the black peep-toes!

i like white sneakers, it can be paired with any color. And white gladiator sandals too, perfect for summer!

I pretty consistently steer clear of white shoes, but I think that it's more because my darker hair and complexion make the white almost blinding. However, I've seen girls wearing white sandals with anything from darkwash jeans to maxi dresses and totally rocking them. Plus, it's after Memorial Day now (almost!) so you're in the clear with wearing white!

I don't wear white shoes alot. I only just bought 2 pairs this year. I beat them to death. they last for only a short time for me.
