The Perfect Pump

Pumps come in all shapes, colors and sizes. There are all types of embellishments, styles and heel heights that you can try. I love a fun heel, but first off, I always opt for a classic simple pump. A simple pump goes with everything. It won’t take away from the dress, rather it is the perfect complement to your ensemble. Not all heels are the same, I look for shape, heel style, and heel height.


Here are my favorites:

Jimmy Choo love is my favorite! I really like the shape; it comes in a variety of fabrics and colors (fabric, glitter, suede, rhinestones etc.) and it comes in three different heel heights. I’m really liking the beige suede color for the summer.

A close runner up are the Jimmy Choo Romy pumps which also come in three heel heights. They are a slightly different shape than the Love, it’s mostly just a matter of taste and how it hits on your foot. Again, they come in multiple colors and fabrics. The heel heights start lower than the Love so if you like a lower heel than the Romy, these will be good for you.

Gianvito Rossi makes an excellent pump. For many people, it is their go to favorite pump (I’m still a Jimmy Choo girl though). There are three heights and numerous colors to choose from. They also have a fabulous sling back which I feel is worth mentioning. I love the shape, and a slingback is a nice transitional piece for spring.

Stuart Weitzman makes a nice pump at a bit of a cheaper price point, though it’s still an excellent quality shoe. These shoes are available in numerous colors. I am especially loving the metallics for the upcoming spring season. These shoes are actually quite comfortable too.

If you are looking for something less expensive, Sam Edelman (great shoes, at great prices!) has two great pumps, one checking in at 2.8” inches and the other at 3.75” inches. They have a wide variety of colors and a slingback version.

Now this shoe is a special secret that I don’t even know if I should share (because I never saw anyone else wearing them – I like feeling unique). I absolutely love these shoes! They are all elegant in the front and party in the back. Surprisingly, they are my most comfortable pair of heels. They also have an anti-grip on the sole! How cool is that. They also come in a super high stiletto but I cannot vouch for their comfort.
