How much do I love these shoes? A LOT! I bought them on March 1, the first day off my shopping diet, and I've worn them at least twice a week since. I've walked to lunch, walked to coffee, walked to dinner in these shoes. Cute + comfy + cheap = THE BEST EVER!
Ok, enough gushing. I love the fact that it's nice outside when I get home from work. Since I got my nice camera last fall, I haven't had a chance to take many outdoor photos, since it got dark so soon afterward. I am super-excited to have nicer (and easier to work with) shots this spring! And K is really starting to get the hang of this thing (it only took 13 shots to come away with these three good ones). A quick auto-color/contrast/tone in Photoshop and these pics are ready to go (after resizing, that is). How much easier can it get? And how many rhetorical questions can I fit into one post? (Just watch.)
A wrap (or faux-wrap, as it were) dress is an office must-have. I love this one because of the collar detail and the print. Chain link never looked classier. The super-subtle print mixing (chain link up top and houndstooth down below) in different colors added a really fun element.
I think the gray top and opaque tights were a little too matchy-matchy. If/when I repeat this outfit, I'd go with sheer black hose instead. Opaque tights can be really fun, but I think the sheer stuff generally looks better on me (and is more slimming).
What is your favorite pair of shoes? What do you love most about them?
