Perfect Pair


Well here is something I never thought I’d say: I was so excited to find these little black flats. Not heels. Flats. For someone who wears heels 87% of the time, the fact that flats are exciting me is big. But lately I’ve been running around trying to get everything done and flats have been my go to. I’ve just about worn the sole out of this pair of Vince flats I got this spring, so I thought I needed to invest in a nice black pair for fall. I picked up these Ivanka Trump ones and just as I suspected — they were a perfect fit. I even wore them all day the very first day I got them and not one blister — and this never happens first day with flats. I mean, I was about to buy a lottery ticket I was feeling so lucky. So meet my new black flats, they are excited to join the team.

  1. I love this look for two reasons- first, obviously its real cute. Full skirt and black and white? Its like my own closet, but better. Second- I love this look because its so relateable. Usually fashion bloggers are just all about upping the anty and trying to outdress themselves- but this look is so down to earth and practical while still be aspirational- I love it. Its refreshing!

  3. I really like your bag! I always see all the colourful Kate Spade bags and am tempted to buy them. I am sure I would get more use out of a neutral colour like yours.

      I agree — I LOVE the colorful ones (hell I bought one with a cat on it) but I get the most use out of my neutral colored bags, hands down. I think once you have your neutrals down, then go for color but neutrals will always get the most use.

    I have that skirt too and adore it! I just love the way you styled it here. And black flats are definitely a bear to find but totally worth the hunt!

    You had me at shoes that didn’t try to murder your feet the first time you wore them. Shoes that fit well are a rare treat — treasure them ๐Ÿ™‚
