spring shoe sunday: bows on heels.

so a new little series i want to try & get started is something i made up called "spring shoe sunday."  i've recently acquired a few pairs of shoes that i'm kind of excited about, & that, combined with the beautiful weather the past few days that i'm hoping will usher in spring full-time, meant that some sort of celebration had to happen!...sorry that the celebrating had to come in the form of a series of posts of me posing in silly ways in outfits that you may or may not love, but such is life. anyway. "spring shoe sunday." the series might edge its way into summer, & it might not always be posted on sundays, but i figured "spring shoe saturday" also sounds nice, so that gives me a little leeway.

first up is this pair of leather heels. they're a beautiful neutral color that means they match with...a lot of things. this is both convenient (you can pop these suckers on your feet with almost any outfit & it'll probably look great!) & incredibly overwhelming - it's almost nice to have a piece of clothing with a color or pattern that so obviously matches well with only a few things. but let's forge on!

look number one centers around this incredibly delightful skirt. with that much color going on, i wanted to choose other outfit parts that wouldn't distract from that. enter a slouchy white shirt & the neutral-colored shoes. don't want nothing to distract from the skirt...can you tell it's a favorite of my 'drobe? (i'm pretty sure no one shortens "wardrobe" to "'drobe" but maybe we should all start). anyway, skirt as focal point. 

shirt: gap, watch: michael kors, skirt: thrifted, shoes: j.crew (looks like they've only got them in black now), bag: kate spade (it's this kind), lipstick: mac "morange."

ben was all, "lift up your skirt so we can see the shoes!" hence this, uh, "pose" (i think he just wanted to catch a glimpse of my ankle, which is sooooo 1870s of him, am i right?! scandalous):

random fact: this skirt used to be a dress, which i once wore backwards (because of a weird stain in the navel area) & documented here. my sister helped turn the dress into a skirt (by way of an enchanted spell).

here's the second outfit, really playing on that whole pastel bit that's so nice in the spring.

& the weird wasteline bumpage the sweater is doing in this one (#notababybump):

sweater: zara, pants: zara, purse: urban outfitters, necklace: anthropologie.

& a funny thing: as i was standing there for the pictures, i misstepped a little & got some mud of the heels of one of the shoes. as i was sitting & trying to clean them off a bit, i used a bit of salty language in my anger (I'VE SINCE REPENTED), & ben was quick enough to capture those precious moments right after, as the echoes of the cussing still hung in the air around us. haha:

look number three is kind of a fun "american in paris"-y look with that full skirt & stripes. the skirt is a dream - i found it at h&m & unlike some things there, it's really quite hefty & doesn't feel cheap-y. it's a nice denim skirt i'm planning on getting a lot of wear out of this summer - i'm thinking pair it with slouchy white t-shirts & saltwaters this summer, perhaps? (you can make it less american in paris-y by switching the red belt out for a brown one, maybe?). i keep pairing this watch with everything but i just love the look of it. & red lipstick always makes things feel crisp.

shirt: american apparel (men's section!), skirt: h&m, belt: thrifted, purse: madewell, watch: michael kors, lipstick: maybelline "red revival"

& then there's this little camera purse that i really, really enjoy:

& now here we are at the end. my outfits are often shoe-centric (i often tend to put together outfits from the shoes up), so this post was a fun one to do. good night!
