Do you ever have those days where you go into work with a set plan for what’s going to be going on that day and dress appropriately, only to find out you’ll be doing something totally different? That’s me the day these photos were taken… and the reason that I rarely wear heels.
On the day these photos were taken, I knew my day would consist of a social media management in the morning, a lunch meeting at the Chamber of Commerce, spending the rest of the afternoon working on the website, and then driving home for photos. Simple enough, and completely appropriate circumstances to wear my new little kaleidoscope dress and my brand new Alterre heels. Except that’s totally not how my day went. After lunch, I ended up doing a plant visit. And then I had to climb into the grass to take photos of a sign on one of our properties. And then I realized I needed to do 50 things on the way to my parents house. I ended up wearing these shoes for the first time for over 12 hours that day, and my feet didn’t even hurt. That’s when I completely fell in love with them.
I don’t usually love shoes or get excited about them. I buy practical shoes that will go with multiple outfits. When I heard about Alterre, I was really intrigued by the concept. You choose your “lift” (either a mule or sandal shoe base) and “look” (shoe strap.) The pieces are interchangeable… How awesome is that?! Along with saving cost, you also save storage space. And as someone who lives in a tiny apartment, I appreciate things like that!
Snap off the strap from the bottom of your shoe
Then snap on the other strap! Simple enough, right?!
For reference, this unflattering foot shot is a great close up on my shoes
I’m sharing this super unflattering shot of my pastel, bony little feet so that you can check out the quality of these shoes. Doesn’t the leather just look fancy? (It’s Brazilian!)
I love the Billie (above) for a night out! The fringe is so fun and flapperish, and I love wearing them with a little black dress to an event or even just to the wine bar! I can’t tell y’all how many compliments I have received on the shoes when wearing the Billie look!
The Marilyn (below) makes for a sexy work shoe! I really think the nude pump and ankle strap elongates my short, muscular legs!
And if you are a fan of the kaleidoscope dress trend, I’ve linked my favorites under $100 below!
Have I converted you into an Alterre fan yet?! Good news – the shoes are currently available for pre-order on their website! (I love pre-orders, because I usually order something, forget, and then a little gift to myself shows up unexpectedly! #thanksself) If you’d like to connect with Alterre, be sure to check them out on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
What do y’all think?!
