Calling all Shoe-aholics…this post is for you! {Ahem. And me.}

In an effort to reign in my own personal footwear addiction, I am reminded of Marilyn Monroe’s profound quote,” Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” You heard it correctly ladies, all we need are the RIGHT shoes, not a million pairs to add a spring in our step.

Aside from the perfect accessory, I’m still pretty sure shoes will always be a woman’s best friend. With countless options each season, it’s hard not to amass a collection of fancy footwear in every shade, color and style. But if you’re looking to streamline you closet {remember: less is more}, here is a simple guide featuring the five “must-have” shoes for every season. Scroll through each lookbook to review some of my favorites and those I consider essentials.
