Transitional Mules For Fall

Nordstrom Vince-Oren-Loafer-Mule

As the new season is approaching, I am eyeing a few pairs of shoes to help me transition into Fall.  Of course they are all black, but each has a cool and interesting element that makes it special.  I was very specifically looking for an investment pair of mules (in black) of great value that I could wear on the go, dressed up or down.  This pair had my name all over them.  First off, I am a growing fan of the brand Vince.  The products are high quality, timeless & super chic.  Pricey but worth the cost, their pieces are those that stay in the closet & become your classic “go-to” wardrobe items for years, not just a quick season.    Whether you’re looking to splurge & invest or spend under $50 so that you can eat & pay rent (I feel you), this round up of black mules will help you smoothly transition out of your sandals & into the Fall months.  Browse below where I started with affordable & fabulous.  Which pair is your favorite?

At times you must treat yourself. I did with these, & I treasure them.  Goodbye summer sandals.  The leather on these gems is so soft & smooth.  They have a house slipper feel to them that makes them easy to throw on to go grocery shopping, yet they are sophisticated & elegant.  This is hard to do, & Vince got it right with these.  I’m obsessed with them.








You can have all four of these stylish mules and still keep it under $100. Now that’s a pretty big shoe win.

UNDER $100

I want them all.  Each one has a unique characteristic that gives it some flair while keeping it totally minimal & classic.  All can be found at Nordstrom for free & easy shipping & returns.

UNDER $200

Sam Edelman is one of my favorite go-to shoe brands always, & these do not disappoint.  I tried on this pair at Nordstrom. The heel and rounded toe keep them classy. And this pair from Via Spiga is the perfect blend of sporty & chic. These would all be investment pairs.  They’re great to add to the wish list and save up for!

      Hi Pauli! I’m glad you like them! Aren’t they so cute?! I tried them on but had to add them to my Wish List, as they’re by Rag & Bone and quite expensive! They’re called the Weiss Mule by Rag & Bone. I did post an option under $200 that is also studded, by Sam Edelman, but it looks like they’re sold out! I can hunt around for a few options for you if you’d like! You have good taste – haha!
