It’s Tuesday Shoes-Day and I’m showing you a repeat wear of shoes. Next week you’ll get a new pair, I promise
Last week I had the pleasure of meeting up with four lovely new mamas and their babies for a play date. And really when babies are <3 months old, the ‘playing’ is nonexistent and it’s more of a chance for the moms to gab / vent / compare experiences. And I loved every minute of it.
Despite my lil soybean being less than 3 weeks old at the time, I have been fortunate to get in daily showers and time to put a little effort into my appearance.
The look includes grey foldover booties by BCBG (size 7.5), red Michael Kors short trench and a Kate Spade diaper bag. I call the look ‘mama chic.’
Here’s a close-up of the booties:
My outfits haven’t been the most exciting couture lately, but my belief is skinny jeans, cute boots/booties and a structured top are great for a go-to look.
I may touch more upon my ‘looks of late’ in my 4 weeks postpartum update tomorrow.
In the meantime, what is your easy go-to look?
I need to apologize. I noticed on my WordPress “Dashboard” that I had quite a few Spam emails so I checked to verify. Wouldn’t ya know that in the last 10 days, 20 comments went to spam…and 99% of them were from regular readers/commentors. I’m sorry I missed them! But I got a smile reading them in retrospect And I’m super sorry if you posted on the Shoes-Day Giveaway and your comments to Spam. Next time I will make sure this doesn’t happen.
Oh and I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one that experiences backfire when the pressure is on to look good. Your advice: chill out, and eat in moderation. Will do!
Tomorrow I will be wearing wedges and flip-flops, but today I’m still sportin’ the boots Cali-winter style. I still have a few more to show you before warm weather footwear trumps all.
Clearly, I apparently wear this sweater far too often! Yikes! I’m committing my own fashion faux pas
But let’s get back to the boots shall we?
ShopItToMe got me again!
Each Sunday I visit with my own personal shopper via email and dangit if it’s not spot on with a high percentage of the finds. So when I saw this boot (in black) I knew I wanted it. Not to be too impulsive, I decided to get in a sweaty workout before making any decisions. Upon my sweaty return, my mind was made up. I clicked the link to Piperlime and GASP :O the black was all sold out in my size!
I noticed there was a grey option, and after mentally scanning my boot inventory, decided that these were different enough from any other boots I own. Click. Purchase. Win.
And what’s even better is that they retailed for close to $150 and I got them for the awesome price of $50!
Questions to ponder…
What was the most impulsive shoe / clothing purchase you’ve had? The most recent one is a Michael Kors oversized watch I got a Nordstroms this past weekend. It was pricey, but it spoke to me…what can I say?
If you had to live in flip-flops or boots, which would you choose? I’d say boots because they have more pizzazz and style! And boots are fab with a heel. Flip-flops not so much.
