[The 12 Days of Summer] #8. Eight Shoes You Need For Fall

Hello all and welcome back to THE 12 DAYS OF SUMMER! I’m counting down my last few days of summer and you get to see a new post every day! Hollaaa! Today I present to you:


Now, this list, mind you, is more for people who go to schools like mine: cold cold cold. Basically, if you live in the south A) So cool how did you find my blog?! and B) Probably not the same issues.

8. Winter Wedges

I call them “winter wedges” really just for the alliteration but what I mean is really for any season that isn’t spring or summer. So instead of your eyelet fabrics and toms canvas wedges, go for deeper, darker colors, maybe some leather (or pleather depending on your animal rights views)

Why You Need Them: warmer on the feet, good to go out in, manageable to walk in

7. Chunky Heeled Boots

I love these boots for fall because they’re casual, and yet you still look so put together when you wear them to class!

Why You Need Them: The chunky heel won’t slow you down, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress them up or down

6. Riding Boots

Frye “Melissa Harness” Boot


Tory Burch Bristol Riding Boot (because a girl can dream, can’t she?!)


Why You Need Them: Literally a staple in any fall outfit! They go with jeans, leggings, skirts, dresses…. am I forgetting anything?! I’m more in favor of brown rather than black, but it’s your call 🙂

5. Slippers

I never wore slippers until I went to college, but once I got to school I couldn’t live without them!

Mudd Knit Snowboard Slippers


Why You Need Them: Cute and fun way to keep your toes warm! And for all you incoming freshies out there, just think: what will YOU be wearing when you have to run to the bathroom in the morning and it’s chilly? Because socks and sandals is never an option.

4. Hunters

Get one, collect them all! Hunters hunters hunters!


Why You Need Them: To fashionably splash around in the puddles on your way to class of course! Bonus points if you have the Hunter socks to go with.

3. Converse

A similar story as Hunters, you can never have enough Converse shoes.


White is very in right now.


But I can’t help but love all of the colors!

Why You Need Them:  Perfect to slip on when you’re in a rush somewhere like the dining hall or to a quick discussion section (or, if you’re like me, are going to wear them during actual rush—sorority recruitment), super comfy, and young and fun.

2. Ballet Flats & Loafers

Had to combine the two shoes into one bullet point but they’re sort of interchangeable I think in terms of if you’re going to wear one with an outfit you can probably wear the other too.

Kate Spade New York Terry Flat


Why You Need Them: So comfy (usually) and an easy way to make an outfit look more put together if used properly

1. Sperrys

Please dear god only wear anything other than a neutral-colored sperry if you are under the age of 12. Some exceptions may apply, but probably not many. Please and thank you.

Sperry Top-Sider Bluefish 2-Eye Boat Shoe


Why You Need Them: Once you break them in they are too comfy to be ignored. They prep up any outfit, and are a classic shoe. I, too, was once against a shoe that my dad had literally been wearing since I was a twinkle in my mother’s eye. Now I see what I’ve been missing out on.

BONUS: Because going back to school also means….Shower Shoes


You’re welcome for reminding you.

WHEW wasn’t that a thrill?! See ya tomorrow for day 6 of THE 12 DAYS OF SUMMER!

xo, K
