Last month, one of our favorite California girls, style blogger Audrey, styled a preppy work outfit around the navy leather Michelle pump. This month, the mom, full-time college counselor and creator of Putting Me Together is back with her most fitting pump ever, but this time it’s dipped in wine suede. We can’t get enough of her take on light, all-occasion layering; this is one outfit that you’ll be able to wear anywhere–from desk to dinner, whether you live in San Diego, like Audrey, or Saint Paul, Minnesota. Beginning with the bordeaux-colored Michelle, Audrey built her look from the ground up, pairing a grey silk blouse with black skinny jeans, a leather jacket and lots of statement extras. She finished it with glossy waves and glowy skin, both of which, like the Michelle pump, complement every woman and are always in style. Find out more about Audrey’s fall style inspiration–and where she took this fabulous look–below.
“How did you style the Bordo Suede Michelle, and what make it so great for a night out?”
One of my favorite color combinations is all black with a bright pop, and this shoe was perfect for that! My outfit in these photos was basically just jeans and a T-shirt, but the Michelle’s bordeaux shade brought life and sophistication to it. Plus, this shoe is possibly the most comfortable pump I’ve ever worn. Its slight platform makes the heel so easy to walk in all night long!
Why is the statement shoe such a fun wardrobe addition?
Bordeaux is one of my favorite colors, especially in the fall and winter. Because it’s so rich, the Bordo Suede Michelle an elegant way to add color without standing out too much. It’s professional enough for the office, and looks perfectly chic on a fun night out!
