3. WIW Thursday to work
Anne Fontaine short sleeve ivory blouse
H&M plaid midi
Fossil floral bag
4. new Mackage Tessa camel coat (just wore it for the picture though).
The camel coat is from Nordstrom. I wanted it ever since it was on sale at NAS but it was sold out. But it recently became available again at the NAS sale price. But I'm not totally sure about how this looks on me and want to get feedback on it--I will post more details about it in a keep or return thread so stay tuned!
5. shirt tucked into midi--I like it both ways, which do you prefer?
6. ...and a new pair of Chie Mihara heels! I love my CM rust sandals so much and they are so comfy that when I saw these on the Anthro website I was instantly hooked! They are called Written in Stars heels and are taupe with bronze colored moon and stars and comet stripes across the back. These shoes were a bit tight in the toe box so I had to size up from a 37.5 to a 38. I was debating about getting these for weeks, because I already have a pair of nude Easy Spirit heels that are similar and have a lower heel (although the CM's are more of a darker taupe than a camel like the Easy Spirits). So it was totally impractical and irrational to get these. But I couldn't help myself...I was bowled over by their fabulosity!
There is a similar CM style with a lower heel called Rostar that are black with brown stars. I thought about getting those (since they would go with both black and brown clothes), but it felt a little too "witchy" and theatrical. I really like how the taupe and bronze is more subtle...it's perfect for my retro classics with a twist taste. They're normal looking conservative shoes, until you look closely and see the stars. Kinda like my bee blouse and yellow owl blouse. I love secretly whimsical clothes! I got a lot of compliments on my shoes today. They are very sturdy and comfortable for their heel height, with the stacked heel, ankle strap and cushioned outsole. I had to pay full price, but given how much I love and wear my other Chie Mihara sandals, I think these will be worth it too!
Comments and suggestions welcome as usual! Bonus shots of DD posing in front of the mirror (I guess she's starting YLF early!) and the kiddos together.
