If you follow me on Snapchat (username: merrittbeck), you’ll know that I purchased a new pair of oxfords since I arrived in London! No, they aren’t this Oscar de la Renta pair, although I’m kind of dying over these too.
The pair I picked up was much less expensive… I found this pair of patent leather oxfords at Zara while mindlessly shopping on Kensington High Street (in my ‘hood), and felt compelled to try them on. I’ve only ever owned one pair of oxford-style shoes, and I didn’t get much use of out them when I had them a few years ago. This time however, I think I’ll turn over a new leaf.
Oxfords are such an “it” shoe here in London. Because you’re walking so much, a comfortable (and cute) pair of flat shoes is an absolute requirement. While I love the flats that I brought and the boots, sometimes you just need spice it up and add a little something new to the mix. This pair is so sleek and very on-trend with all of the trim and tailored oxfords out right now. Also, they’re only $70!
I highly recommend buying into this trend for fall – whether you spend $70 or $700, it’s a chic, comfortable shoe you’ll reach for all season long!
