If I had to pick one shoe that has really tugged at my heart strings this past year, it has hands down been the humble mule. Effortlessly chic (in that cool, Parisian kind of way), they’ve become my go to for the office, for lazy weekends spent pottering around the house, and for nights out; there just isn’t another shoe that I can slip on quite so easily, and be out the door in a flash (which honestly, most days I’m usually on the cusp of running late!).
If we’re counting – and I usually don’t – my mule and slide collection is currently pushing 10 pairs, and with my sights set on a punchy tangerine pair (also this pair from Dear Frances conjures up all kinds of goodness), it clearly shows no signs of stopping any time soon. Every girl has her weakness, and as much as I try and keep my wardrobe as tightly edited as possible, a new pair of shoes is something I just can’t seem to resist. It’s not often that I fall for a trend this hard, and thankfully down to the minimal silhouette and easy-going nature of the mule, it seems like they’re currently here to stay – and my wardrobe’s not complaining.
So in an ode to the mule, I’ve picked out some of my current favourites from around the web which you can check out below! x
