Confessions of a Shoe Addict

Today was a shoe addict kinda day. I picked out my outfit quickly, in fact I laid it out last night, as I had snagged an adorable skirt at goodwill yesterday and wanted to wear it.



But then I had to pick shoes. So many possibilities!!! Here’s 3 I narrowed it down to (and the green flats I will explain later)


So, Strassed Manolo Blahniks, or the Christian Louboutin heels? The plain green flats were my choice for the outing to the cross country meet this afternoon, so you know. I’ve already made the mistake of wearing 3″ Strassed Louboutin heels in the dirt.

And the verdict?




Cardigan: Banana Republic
Blouse: Nanette Lepore
Skirt: Alfani, Thrifted
Shoes, Grey Patent Christian Louboutin Simples (I adore these shoes, they are seriously SO comfortable!!!)
Necklace: Vintage (was my great-grandmothers)

But I couldn’t resist having some fun:


I really really really loved this ensemble. The colours are a little wild, but I felt it worked. Therefore, I rocked it and none was the wiser that I threw together like a million contrasting colour/pattern/textures and it really didn’t match. But isn’t that fashion? Making the unthinkable look awesome. I received many compliments, as well as “I would have never put that together, but I love it on you”. My response is always this:

“You can wear ANYTHING, as long as you stand tall and carry yourself as if you are the most fabulous person ever”. It’s perception people, perception!!!

One last thing to share, two photos from the stunning location of my older kids’ cross country meet this afternoon. I sat outside in awe of the beauty around me!!



Hopefully all the birthday items I ordered will arrive soon! Although I have been seriously remiss in sharing new acquisitions!!!

Until next time,
