Adding a sparkle to your step

The mule trend is alive and well and I’m its #1 fan. I already have about 10 pairs on my wish list for spring and summer. My love for mules started during the holidays when I was gifted my new favorite pair of Sparkler Wrap Mules from Free People.

What makes this specific pair so stylish? Maybe the fact the entire heel consists of a metallic sparkle that nobody can miss, to start. Also, they are extremely comfortable to wear – the block heel gives you enough support and the heel isn’t too high to put you at risk of twisting an ankle. I also swoon over the light grey suede. Grey is a neutral that I love in the shoe department since it goes with everything! The lace-up detailing sets these shoes apart from other mules that are standalone block heels by instantly making any outfit you wear them with, feminine and fabulous.

February is my favorite month to play up textures, layers and rock the soon-to-be daily spring color palette of pastels. In this look, I am pairing my sparkly mules with a velvet pastel purple dress that I scored from a little boutique in Parker, Colorado called Twisted Wardrobe I had the pleasure of visiting during the holidays.  It’s by far one of my favorite purchases to date. Have no fear, in the winter you can still make sleeveless dresses work. Layered over the top of a darker purple/grey mock neck sweater from Express is the ideal (and stylish) solution!

When it comes to accessorizing, I wanted to keep it simple and the focus on my glittery kicks. A statement necklace with metallic and pastel accents does just the trick to wear over the top of my sweater/dress all while complimenting the colors/metallic in this overall look.
