When you decide to invest in long-term or statement pieces for your closet, what types of items are you most inclined to buy?
If there’s one style investment I consider the most important for me, it’s definitely my shoes. I occasionally buy secondhand shoes, but it’s not really where I’ve had the most luck (that would be dresses). Instead, I know how important high quality shoes can be to my overall happiness and health. I love how they feel, that they can make or break an outfit, and chronic back problems for me make the right shoes a must!
If you haven’t noticed, I wear A LOT of Cole Haan shoes. I’ve developed a bit of a crush on them due to the simple, chic and classic design as well as the comfort and high quality. I doted on my purple pair of Cole Haan flats a while back. Then, I shared how much I love my black flats too! I also have cream flats, nude flats, and silver flats as well (and apparently a Cole Haan flats problem…).
I don’t generally write about a single brand just to let you know how much I love it. But Cole Haan shoes can be a bit pricey, so I wait to buy new pairs when their clearance section is on sale. That is happening right now!
So… if you’re in the market for a new pair of kicks and Cole Haan is in your wheelhouse, I can definitely attest to their value relative to their slightly higher price point. We get what we pay for, right?
In any case, I’ve shared today my most recent Cole Haan purchase (these boots I’m wearing today) that I bought from their last clearance flash sale. I wore this outfit to work (on a casual day) and then switched up the jacket to head to an after hours work party. Similar to my day to night sweater dress posts (with the gray leather jacket and the cognac leather jacket), it’s crazy how switching up a jacket can make such a difference in the vibe of an outfit.

I have had great experience with Cole Haan products and share this with you only because I think it could be a great investment for a closet in search of a new or replacement pair of high quality kicks.
