My name is Miki, and I am addicted to the color taupe. Especially for shoes. I've been noticing lately that every time I spot a pair of taupe shoes, I have to investigate.
Unfortunately, there have been two times in the past couple of months that I haven't been able to just say 'no'. So today I bring you the manifestation of my obsession.

These boots. Yes, these boots. These boots are the only reason I'm okay with summer not being here yet (Although I can't promise I'll stop wearing them just because it's flats and wedges season). These have faux-leather panels on the back and toe, along with the belt-detail, and a canvas panel on the front. The 3.5" stacked heels give nice height whilst still being extremely comfortable. I've worn these on day-long shopping trips and my feet had no problems. Again, these are true-to-size but with a sock-adjustment (I go up half a size for shoes that I wear with socks, so I got the Mary Jane's in a 6.5 and these in a 7). The best part is that these are now on sale for only $32 (and Kohl's is always offering coupons for additional savings), so definitely snatch these up before they're gone!
Besides the color and comfort of these shoes, I also love how versatile they are. These shoes can be paired with dressier, more feminine styles but also with super-casual ones. Here, I've paired both pairs of shoes with a white, lacy skirt and my favorite distressed jeans. And honestly, I can't even decide which way I like better. What shoes have you been loving lately?
