Last time we saw this Floridian-by-way-of-Canada, she was rocking the black leather Michelle pump with an easy work outfit and breezy hair; a look every stylish woman should embrace on a regular basis. Michelle, creator of the style blog Mash-Elle, is back with our “most fitting pump”, coincidentally also named the Michelle, in a dramatic bordeaux hue–perfect for long, cool October days and nights. Michelle a decidedly fashion-focused spin on her look, pairing the bordeaux suede Michelle pump with an ivory mini-dress that mixes a mod, ’60s-inspired shape with ’70s bohemian lace. A black velvet choker necklace and deep wine-colored lipstick finish the look with ’90s flair. One thing we especially love about this outfit is how seasonless it is; for Sunbelt denizens like Michelle, this shoe and other dark accessories add an autumnal twist to the summery dress–while still embracing balmy weather. If, like us, you live in a cooler climate, simply add tights and a leather jacket to make your Michelle-inspired ensemble perfect for fall.

“I wore this look for girls’ night out. We celebrated my best friend’s birthday at a local club. It was Beyoncé night. Needless to say, there was a lot of dancing! I can always count on my Michell pumps to keep up with whatever the night holds.”
“Girls’ night out typically involves a potluck dinner, a pre-game lip-sync session to top 40 songs and then a night out on the town. We’re on our feet a lot, so comfort is key when it comes to footwear! I’ve been wearing my Michelle pumps a lot lately, and my feet are loving it!”
