Cinderella Story: Slip On A Velvet Shoe

If you've always wanted to be a Disney Princess, this season's must-have shoe will have you sourcing out the nearest tiara - I've already found mine!

Spring is coming, and that means less in the way of rain (I hope). For that reason, we can step away from the boots and the heavy materials, and slip into something a little more magical - enter the velvet shoe, fit for Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty herself!

 

VELVET CASUAL

You might think that velvet has to be dressed up or not at all, but that's not the case! You can easily dress velvet down while still adding a nod to fashion in your daily ensemble. These funky JSLIDES slip on sneakers are ideal for shopping, heading to a dinner date, or simply popping out for a coffee - why not do all of that while looking fab and on trend? 

Because the weather is taking a turn for the warmer, why not bare those legs? This SACAI striped mini dress is the ideal mixture between chilled out/off duty sports and chic Parisian - I love it!

VELVET BOOTS

Okay, let's not get too ahead of ourselves, it's not summer yet, so we may still need the odd pair of boots. In that case, this stylish pair of RAPARO velvet ankle boots will help you switch from office to night out with ease, able to be dressed up or down however you please. Throw on a pair of skinny jeans, or dress them up with a cute mini dress and tights.

CLASSIC VELVET

If you prefer to stick with the Disney Princess vibe, this cute but edgy pair of classic velvet dolly shoes are ideal! Super fashionable, these pumps by Marc Fisher look ideal with jeans or a skirt, such as this WAVEN denim skirt, which basically goes with everything! You can easily rock the princess vibe while still living in the modern day. I, for one, love these cute shoes out of the three featured here!

Disney magic is certainly alive and well, with the return of the velvet shoe. While I can't promise you'll meet your Prince Charming as a result of wearing them, you are going to feel uber-fashionable and downright pretty as a result, which is basically the same thing - right?

Next week I'm going to go all sporty. With the summer fast approaching and a plethora of sporting events to check out, I'll talk about what to wear to these events to help you stay fashionable and sporty at the same time.

Enjoy your week!
