Jill Gott-Gleason has been blogging at Good Life for Less for nearly 8 years, so we knew that if anyone could give the Michelle pump a well-informed review, it would be her. Thankfully, the full-time writer and mother of two young children gave our most fitting pump ever high marks. She also styled it in a way that beautifully balances comfort (necessary for an on-the-go lifestyle) and every woman’s desire to look polished and chic. Turns out we can have it all! The look below is seasonless, but we think it feels especially fresh for fall, thanks to Jill’s knit moto-inspired jacket and easy, breezy hair. Of course, nothing competes with her smile, inspired, no doubt, by how good her feet feel! Learn more about the ensemble–and Jill’s easy-going approach to fashion–in our Q&A below.
Why do you love the Michelle pump?
The Michelle is a classic pump that every gal should have in her closet, especially if she values both style and comfort. I love the small platform and 3-inch heel that make them easy to wear. This is by far the most comfortable pair of pumps I have ever worn!
How did you style the pump’s classic color?
My work-from-home aesthetic is pretty laid back, but every once in a while, I need to step up my game for an event or meeting. Throwing on a pair of pumps instantly puts me in girl boss mode. Here, I styled the Michelle with leather leggings, a white tunic and a simple grey moto jacket for chilly Michigan mornings. This is my perfect working mom look!
Why is this color such a wardrobe staple?
Black pumps are mandatory! They can be worn with dresses, jeans, trousers–whatever your day demands.
