Borrowed From The Boys

    Borrowed From the Boys: Johnston & Murphy Wingtips

    Have you ever put on shoes that just make you feel like dancing?

    Because that’s exactly what I wanted to do when I slipped into these wingtips from Johnston & Murphy.

    True story: I love J&M for you fellas (obviously, since I recommend them all the time), but up until a month ago, I didn’t even know they offered women’s shoes! Live and learn people, live and learn.

    These shoes are sturdy – unlike so many ballet flats that us ladies keep stashed in our bags for lengthy commutes, before changing into more stylish heels upon arrival at our respective destination.

    So it’s already saying something that I actually want to wear these flats all day long, given that I’m a girl who loves a little height in her shoe.  I’ll happily stand at average height for the day in these bad boys.

    Beyond that, these kicks have so much personality! I feel like I could break out into the Charleston every time I wear them. Which would be pretty impressive, considering I don’t know how to Charleston.

    These shoes are such a great look on a guy, and as you’re well aware by now, I don’t mind stealing your style and making it my own – in this case, with a cute skirt and the promise of somewhere fun to go (dancing, perhaps?).

    Tell me: How would you style wingtips like the men’s version above?
