Edge of Classic

Shoes? L.A.M.B., Winners (here or in blue here) Skirt? Old Navy, thrifted (similar here... kinda pricey, or just thrift it) Shirt? Joe Fresh Bag? Tignanello, thrifted Belt? Thrifted (similar here)

I was originally wearing these vintage cuffs with this outfit as well, but I took the cuffs off to make dinner and I forgot to put them back on. That'll teach me not to make dinner again...
To be honest, I quite like the look without the cuffs. I like the contrast of the rather classic denim skirt and white button-up against the bright shoes.The bright shoes that have the been the source of many internal conversations in my mind. Meh... sometimes I talk to my cats and sometimes I just need to talk to myself. I left them behind at first while I struggled with the different voices that told me both 'they are so awesome and unusual' and 'they are mighty frightening to walk in'. Obviously, the 'awesome and unusual' argument won, mostly because I convinced myself that I like to live on the edge. Which, now that I think about it, is mostly a lie. I prefer to park between the lines, I hate roller coasters and I yell at Matt when he pulls the handbrake so he can do donuts in the snow. But I do like my heels to be very high and I like to run my mouth occasionally so if that makes me even a tiny bit edgy, I shall take it...

I find skirts with slits like that fairly often at the thrift stores. After buying a few and wearing them, I feel like I know why they were donated. It is damn hard to wear a skirt with a front slit like that and not flash someone at some point! I just don't have the skills, and so I sent them back to whence they came. You look beautiful, can't go wrong with jeans and a white shirt!

Heehee, cute post! Well, we all gotta find a little thrill somewhere. Shoes are a marvelous thrill, if you as me. I like to call them my "big girl shoes." Because I feel so tall (and a little mighty?) in them.

Dying a little bit over these shoes! HOLY SMOKES, they are gorgeous. I am glad the awesome argument won! I'd probably not be able to walk in these, but I do love rollercoasters, so uh, there's that.
