I’ll admit that I let out a collective grown with the rest of you when I heard that the mule was making a return in “fashionable footwear”. All I could imagine were the horrible soft soled, suede slingback shoes. You know the ones I’m talking about- they are six steps [in the wrong direction] away from the casual Merrell.
But the updated, modern mule has gotten me in quite the tizzy. I imagine that — depending on the heel — they could look good with just about anything. I plan on wearing my pair (black wedges) with soft pants, maxi skirts, boyfriend jeans, and all my dresses well into summer.
As soon as even before my intermittent freelance check came in the mail, I was thinking about shoes. Functional snowboots. Tory flats. Nike wedges. And yes, mules. I love the Steve Madden nudes in the middle of Elizabeth’s collage!
