Look For Less: Leather Mules

A year ago I would have laughed at myself for even considering purchasing these shoes. I really didn't get the whole 90's shoe/ugly shoe/etc trend when it first came about. Lately, however, my style has really been evolving and changing. I suppose it's a natural side-effect of getting older combined with graduating college and moving to a new city. Whatever the reason, I've come around to this look in a big way. Gotta love how things can change, eh? :)

During one of my many post work shopping trips on King St. (so dangerous to work here) I came across the J. Crew Marlow Mules and fell in love with their un-fussy, chic vibe. The style is such a fun alternative for the typical heels/wedges I wear throughout the warmer months. However, this post-grad budget can't really swing almost $200 for a pair of shoes, so I left broken hearted empty handed.

Fast forward to a different post-work shopping trip last week. I walked into Urban Outfitters to browse and kill time before attending an outdoor movie event nearby. After looking around I discovered their Sloan Mules- a doppleganger for the pair I had been coveting from J. Crew! I tracked down the last pair in my size, tried them on, and immediately walked to the register. Comfy, stylish, and a full $100 less than the pair I originally wanted? Sold!

Always exciting when something like this happens! Have you found any great style steals lately? If so, please share! Happy weekending! xoxo
