Shades of Nude | Blending in


I definitely gravitate towards neutrals when it comes to my personal style: black, camel & all shades of tan are my jam. When it comes to my feet, there is nothing I love more than a nude sandal! They are so sexy, go with everything, and elongate the legs which is a huge bonus for petite girls like myself. Unfortunately, “nude” doesn’t mean the same thing across the board and being a woman of color, it was always a daunting task shopping for nude sandals or lipstick: two things that sit flush against the skin. My brown skin.

All us forgotten girls on the spectrum are finally being heard. So many beauty & fashion brands are taking note and being the change this industry so desperately needed. That’s why I’m so excited about the new line of all-inclusive nude shoe line now available at DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse, which is made to complement a range of skin tones! I’m wearing the Aldo Melawet Sandal in the shade tan suede and it’s a perfect match, I can’t believe it! They’re barely detectable from a distance really giving me that long leggy look that I love so much, and they’re so comfortable to boot!

These have become such a staple in my wardrobe because they’re so easy to dress up or down, they’re low-key yet chic, and they make me feel even more perfect in my skin! They’re literally the nudes for everyone!
