Raise your hand if you are guilty of buying a SUPER CUTE pair of shoes ... and then buying new clothes to GO WITH the new shoes?!?!? Anyone? Anyone?
My hand is RAISED loud and proud. ;)
I can't help it. I'm a shoe gal. I knew when I saw these shoes (in black) on my friend Julie I had to have them. In fact I think I may have taken them off of her feet to try them on my OWN feet to see how they'd look! HEE! And I was in love. The beauty of TOMS is that they are comfortable and this style is also CUTE. I love a good wedge style shoes though, I'm a fan.
So on a whim I bought the shoes in taupe the other week. They came and I LOVE them. But needed a few things to wear with them. Why taupe? Because I have so much black and I wanted to mix it up a bit. This first outfit I pulled together all from my own closet with no purchases! WIN!
(old boyfriend jeans from The Gap; sweater a clearance Gap find and a cheapie Old Navy tank. I really never know what to wear with this sweater so I just paired it with another bright color and called it a day. I think it works but I could just be telling myself that! :) )
And here is the outfit I purchased specifically to go with my new boots!
Boots are TOMS as mentioned above; lightweight sweater is from Free People and I cannot say enough GOOD THINGS about it. Longer in the front and back but higher on the sides -- it is so flattering. I need it in more colors!! And then the patterned leggings from Old Navy.
I was unsure about this outfit and sent it to Julie to get her thoughts and she gave me the overwhelming thumbs up so I felt secure about it! It was sooooo comfortable AND stylish -- a true MOM win! I give you the go-ahead -- COPY IT! In fact, if you want a similar style of wedge bootie for less $$$ go to TARGET! I picked these up in black and I love them too ... for more than half the price of TOMS! You heard it here friends.
Alright. Happy Monday. I hope you are enjoying finding fresh fall looks as much as I am! One of the great reasons for a season change! YAY!
