I love shoes.  When I was younger, I loved clothing and accessories (especially belts!) and I wasn't a fan of shoes.  Now I'm a total shoe whore, or as Urban Dictionary like to call it, 'a bag hag obsessed with shoes'.  :)  Last year I did a huge closet clean-out and got rid of SO many shoes and since then I've gotten better at what kinds of shoes I invest in.  I've been guilty of buying a gorgeous pair of shoes and not wearing them because they are too high and uncomfortable.  I'm already on the tall side, so I stay away from anything over 3.5".  Classic shoes are worth the investment to me.  I'll do a post in the future that covers shoes worth the investment.  (Espadrilles are not) I would never spend over $40, and usually stick to the $20 range.

Onto the shoes I'm wearing, I scored these for an amazing deal in the winter.  They're normally $340 and I got them for around $80.  I haven't seen that good of a deal again, but you can get them close to $125 which is still an awesome price.  Now that it's spring time, I like to pair my 'uniform' with heels or open toed shoes instead of booties and I'm still warm enough while being spring appropriate.  Everything in this post is still available, and exact links are below.  :)
