A basic, black pump is a must in any wardrobe. Paired with anything from a business suit to your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans, this classic shoe will be the one you reach for time and time again. Don’t shy away from owning different pairs for different occasions. You might want a higher heel and a platform style for a night on the town, while a Mary Jane, round-toe version might be better suited for your 9-5. Some of my current favorites are as follows:
1. Modern Vintage Callan Platform Pump - $125
2. KORS Michael Kors Galli Suede Mary Jane Pump – $195
3. Dolce Vita Devon Pump – $100
4. Cole Haan Mariela Air Open Toe Pump – $230
5. Forever21 Pointed Patent Pumps – $37
6. Aldo Bolus Pumps – regularly $110, marked down to $40!

And now….a Wardrobe Check Challenge! I’d love to see the outfits that you put together using your basic wardrobe essentials. Send a picture of yourself wearing your wardrobe check basics to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll feature it in next week’s post!
