WIW 3/7: Luxe sweatshirt and pointy silver mirror pumps

I've been absolutely drowning in work and kid stuff lately (just got off a hugely busy week of call and then yesterday threw a big superhero birthday party for my boys who turned 1 and 4!), so it's been hella crazy to say the least, and I haven't had a chance to post in a while. Finally getting a bit of a breather (now back to just regular everyday crazy). Here's an outfit I wore to work. Very monochromatic--dark grey, black, white, silver. I'm excited about this new pair of silver pointy toe pumps with a mirror-finish silver bow. I was looking for a pair of nude pumps to replace my worn out 15 year old ones that are peeling, so I went to the Kate Spade store to try on a pair that I had seen on sale online. The nude ones I tried weren't comfortable, but the SA suggested these silver ones which were on sale. They are mid-heel height so they're pretty comfortable for heels. They seem versatile--I could wear these for workday or evening or even to dress up a pair of jeans. People seemed to like the shoes a lot...got lots of comments on them. Paired them with my Vince luxe sweatshirt (yay for wearing sweats to work!), lace print midi tube skirt, and a statement necklace. Feels very "new new me" if you know what I mean. What do you think? Is this polished enough for work, or too trendy/blogger-y? Thanks for your comments!

Vince grey sweatshirt, Vince Camuto lace print midi tube skirt, black Michael Kors studded satchel (thought about doing matchy matchy with the silver satchel but in the end decided to let the pumps shine on their own), White House Black Market statement necklace, Kate Spade Janice pointy silver pumps

    Aren't you a super hero to take on all this. 

    Would we get to see the birthday photos of your kids?

    Love the shoes! I think your whole outfit is great. The colour scheme is subtle yet it's rich which texture. It all works for me!

    Love this whole outfit. The subdued tonal look allows the silver pumps to " work for work" plus the juxtaposing sweatshirt takes them back down a notch and the grays in the skirt tie it all together. Brilliant!

    Beautiful shoes! I like the outfit also.

    OMG, those shoes! The entire outfit is great! You are a true heroine, Natalie, toggling work and children like you do is no easy job. I'm amazed that you amidst all this manages to look so pulled together and fabulous. Yes, your outfit is work appropriate, and not too trendy at all, just very up to date.

    Very pretty outfit. (Hey -- guess what? -- you are my skirt twin.) Love how you've paired that VC lace print tube skirt with a sporty gray sweatshirt. (I should try that.) Your gorgeous statement necklace takes everything up a notch. Love your new silver pumps… so fab!

    Very nice style on you. Silver pointy toes are a smart, stylish touch. Necklace pairs beautifully with the sweatshirt. I have to admit, the sweatshirt would not have been my first choice because of its boxiness, but you have made such a good job here, it looks fresh and comfortable, adding tons of strength and personality to this outfit. It says "I am busy, I work, but I am still stylish". Your lovely hairdo complements it nicely too.

    I am seriously in love with this whole outfit...and those mirrored silver pumps are to die for! You look fantastic in the whole ensemble and I personally think it's very work appropriate/polished.

    Great shoes!  Fun way to mix the sweatshirt in and dress it up a bit.

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    Ooh, great outfit!  I love how the shoes and necklace really add some punch.  Those shoes are fabulous and will look good with so many outfits.

    Crazyfab!  On trend and polished.  You are amazing!

  • rae replied 5 years ago

    KILLER pumps! The silver keeps the bow from being too sweet, and the bow keeps the pointy toe from looking too lethal. Are you shrinking out of that tube skirt? :)

  • Day Vies replied 5 years ago

    The shoes are divine! I adore the lace print on the skirt and love the statement necklace. I'm on the fence about the sweatshirt but I think that's my bias for things that are polished.

  • Isabel replied 5 years ago

    WOW !  I also love this !  Just a great look.   ( It is nice to "see" you btw, I feel as if I haven't seen you forever ! )
