Just Add Shoes

May 22, 2015

Can I be honest? I’ve been in a bit of a fashion funk this week. I had another post planned for today but due to a mix-up it didn’t arrive in time (It’ll be coming at you Monday so stay tuned!). I don’t like dressing for the warmer months as much as I do the cooler ones. Frankly, I’m just not feeling very cool. It seems like everyone is doing it all better than me. Anyone else ever feel that way?

This plaid drop waist dress is one of my favorites. You’ve seen it before with my OTK boots. In the late spring and summer, I turn to dresses often. Unlike in the cooler months, you don’t have as many layers to add personality to your outfit. Personally, I love to let a fun shoe to do the talking for me. I found these knock off Valentino rockstud flats for only $60 on Amazon, and they are amazing. They come in a ton of colors and are really well made. I’m even considering ordering another pair. They are a great outfit maker. I’ve had some funny reactions to them. I’m referring to them as my kick ass shoes (did I just say that on the internet?). But they do make me pretty happy, so when all else fails, just add shoes. Of course a killer pair of sunglasses doesn’t hurt either. Obsessed with my latest pair from Ditto’s Endless Eyewear Program.

    Oh wow! Love those flats! I just posted on how I was sort of over studs and on to grommets, but a faux rockstud just drags a girl right back to stud love doesn’t it?! 🙂 Thanks for sharing these darling shoes! I’m sure a pair are headed my way shortly. 🙂

    That dress is perfect, love the shape and the print! I remember the outfit with over the knee boots, but it looks equally great with those flats!

  • Reply Patricia Blaj May 23, 2015 at 10:47 am

    I guess that is the perfect recipe for everything, just add shoes! Also, I agree! There are so many layering options for the colder months and jackets and all the good stuff 🙁 I’m not a big fan of summer dress either.

    I totally agree! I prefer cool weather clothing as well! (I think we’re in the minority;)) So happy to see you bring out this dress again, though! It’s one of my faves:)
