BEST CASUAL SHOES FOR WOMEN

Well! The responses to this post about shoe basics made it pretty clear that you lovely folks would like some casual shoe-specific input.

I am most certainly NOT looking forward to a long, cold winter … but our marvelously warm autumn is making me hanker for true scarf weather. I loved how this old scarf and new-to-me blazer looked together so I kept myself swathed all day, but I think it was about 70 degrees. Sometimes the weather and the season just refuse to agree!
