I don’t know about you but if I’m heading out for a day where I know I’ll be on my feet and walking around a lot I always reach for some cute but comfortable flats. And thankfully the menswear trend is kicking into high gear this season because these Johnston & Murphy velvet slippers are favorites of mine. They’re easy and polished all at the same time.

They’re the kind of slippers that pair nicely with dresses or jeans during the day or night. Score!

Happy Saturday. I’m writing from Asheville, NC. Josh and I drove up Thursday for a conference (his) so I’ve been relaxing and enjoying the weather and view. I’ve been living in long knits and leggings because that is exactly what I want to be wearing when I’m lounging around and still need to look put together. Sure I could throw on my jeans but who wants to curl up in those? The key to pulling off leggings in public is pairing them with a long top because no one wants to see your stuff.

If you’re looking for a good basic black legging it doesn’t get better than these spanx leggings. I can never have enough pairs as I want to pull them on every morning.

I’m embracing the remaining warm days by mixing my fall wardrobe with my favorite summer things. These Johnston & Murphy Noel Booties are the perfect low bootie to pair with my cutoffs and dresses now and then my jeans later. I love how the little dip in the front of these booties elongates my legs (always a plus when you’re 5’4 like me).

The mushroom suede color of these booties is so versatile that I’ve found a million different things to wear them with, but they come in black and dark brown as well. They’re perfectly comfortable too, so I can wear them all day long.

Stay tuned for part two of my collaboration with Johnston & Murphy on Monday – I think you’ll love the next pair! Think menswear.

 

Happy Friday!
