I just wore this suit last week, but it seemed like a perfect way to finish off the neutral challenge week, bookending the WHBM outfit I wore on Monday. Another look copied straight from the catalog! But the spectator pumps they had in the catalog were super high, so I thought of the perfect alternative--the All Black Fish Bow pumps that Angie recommended! Now I can be shoe twins with Shannon! (and I think maybe Sona?)
The shoes definitely run small--I'm normally a size 7-7.5 and the 8 fit best (I also bought a 7.5 to compare but it was too small). But it's a size 38, which is the same size as my Dansko clogs (my Chie Mihara sandals are a 37.5). So it runs 1/2-1 size large based on the American size, but relatively true to size if you know your European size. The shoes are really comfortable--low heel and roomy toe box--and I think it'll go well with my retro ladylike style (which is very similar to Shannon too)! Great pick Angie!
Oh, and another DD funny--she saw me putting on my skirt and said "Mommy, you need some pants to go with your skirt" (because I always have her wear leggings under her skirts). I said "No, I'm just wearing the skirt." And she said, "But then when you twirl, everyone will see your underwear!" Daughters are so much fun! :)
