When I Turned 30, I Had No Desire to Wear These Shoes

Just as the eyes are the windows to a person's soul (or so they say), I find shoes to be the windows to a person's style. I build my outfits around shoes, I spend a sizable piece of my shopping budget on shoes and I rarely meet someone without taking a look down at their shoes. Maybe it's just me, but I find shoes to be a big deal.

When I turned 30, I realised several things about my style, which resulted in an edit of my wardrobe—and, in particular, my shoe collection. Hoping to achieve a more polished, grown-up vibe, I ditched five shoe styles in particular. While, of course, there's no right or wrong shoe to wear at any given age, for me, my overall style shift meant it was time to say goodbye to these styles.
