Daily Covet: Sam Edelman Becker Sneakers

There’s nothing bigger in footwear than slip-ons at the moment.

That’s why these Sam Edelman Becker Sneakers are on my must-have list.  Well, that’s not the only reason. Carrying bags, baby, keys and more out the door is tough to do – which only leaves one hand to put your shoes on… if that!

Sam Edelman’s go-with-anything sneakers would be perfect since I can’t wear flip-flops all fall and winter too. I’m wild about these sneakers and would love to try them on with denim skimmers, sweatshirt dresses and even shorts!

Where can’t these Beckers in such a cute animal print go?






Daily Covet: Leopard Calf Hair Pump

I adore calf hair pumps.  I especially adore calf hair pumps when they have a chic leopard print and coordinating piping.

The classic lines of these J. Crew calf hair pumps are my absolute favorites for a number of reasons.

  1. The block-ish heel will be in style for-EVER!  Don’t believe me?  Go back an look at Prada’s shoes from past decades.
  2. The rounded toe means the toe box offers a little more rooms for those of us, who have wider feet or are out of the practice of  wearing high and pointy heels.
  3. With a heel of 3 3/4″, they are still manageable for us girls, who used to wear heels often, but have given them up with our day jobs.

Again, these shoes are cute with pencil or pleated skirts.  Denim and schoolboy blazers (like my previous Daily Covet.)  Ankle-skimming pants in bright hues or wide-legged trousers that need a heel for a long and lean look.

It’s a no-brainer, really, that these J.Crew calf hair pumps are a must-have this season and the many that follow it!

Take a peak at peep-toe Cole Haans

There are few things better than the marriage between shoe maker extraordinaire and sneaker maker extraordinaire.  Several years ago, I bought two pairs of Cole Haan ballet flats with Nike Air technology.  I was pregnant at the time, and just needed comfortable shoes that I could chase my then 2 1/2YO  around in, without looking like a schlep.

They were on sale, so I treated myself to both pairs, one leopard calf hair with chocolate patent around the edges and the other, which were zebra calf hair with black patent edges.  They have been amazing shoes now for over 3 years, and may just be the first pairs of shoes I have actually “worn out.”

So, I’m looking for new ones.  These Cole Haan Air Tali Jeweled Ballerina flats are a little more summery and a little less all-purpose than the calf hair ones, but I still love them.  And if I’m going to pay good money for a pedicure, I definitely want to show off my toes anyway!
