How to style granny shoes?

September 4, 2017

Granny shoes? I have never thought that I would find myself styling granny shoes! I do love ladylike, classy outfits but granny shoes? That’s a whole new world to me. 🙂 I am always up for a good fashion challenge so I couldn’t pass this pair of beauties and try to style them in “my way”. This outfit has been completely built around these shoes and I hope that you will like the outcome as much as I did. 

My both grandmas were very strong, beautiful ladies which I have looked up to a lot when growing up. My Croatian grandma was the one which I have spent most of my childhood with and I have always been impressed by how bottomless her closet was and that it’s been filled with so many pretty dresses and blouses I have rarely seen her wear. She’s been “that woman” who only took special pieces of clothes out when there was a very special occasion to attend to but the rest of the time she wouldn’t mind much if the clothes she wore were all matching or after a latest trend. She was more of a free spirited, only natural, no make up or hair colouring kind of beauty. She always made a point to me that a clean, well taken care of woman is when the woman looks the most beautiful and it doesn’t matter which clothes she has on because her beauty will shine more than any fancy dress.

My other, Russian grandma was such a fashion and style influence to me as well but in a different way. She was always all dressed up and made up no matter if there was that special occasion to attend to or not. She wouldn’t even go out next door to the grocery store if she didn’t have her hair combed back nicely or lipstick on. Her passion for accessories, ladylike dressing and putting on make up and perfume was something that left the biggest influence on me. I still remember clearly those moments when she was getting ready to go out and my little face staring at her in an adoring way witnessing the magic of how “clothes do make a person” because they sure did make my grandma look even more grandiose and beautiful than what she already did.

Both of my grandmas had couple of pairs of their special “grandma shoes” and now wearing those white ones in my outfit I felt very special and emotional at the same time… I miss both of my grandmas, they were exquisite ladies which both have passed away way too soon and neither one of them have seen me grow up into a woman I am today.

This outfit is my dedication to my both grandmas, to all of the strong, beautiful women out there who are soft, loving, caring, feminine, yet very strong, determined and in a classy way balancing all of their “hats” in their granny shoes and unconsciously being of a great inspiration to all of us younger girls.

    They are not granny shoes! They are hella cool! Maybe it’s cause you can style them so well! Personally, I love the old school look. There’s something so classy about it!

    You’re killing the granny shoe look! Although I totally don’t think they look granny-ish. You styled it perfectly with the vintage vibes girl! Love it!
