There is always something about a quirky novelty shoe that brightens up my day. These bunny flats by Kate Spade have been on high rotation since nabbing them this past Fall. I admit, at first although I loved them I was unsure exactly how much I’d wear them; but sure enough, I treat them as a neutral flat with a cotton tail and they make their appearance every so often.
These are comfy to boot with soft brushed suede and a fuzzy pom pom tail. Perhaps even cuter than the tail- the spade nose, the tiniest gold accent. The only unfortunate thing about these is that they are so light I can only wear them when it is completely dry outside, or indoors only. I know it is only January, but I can’t wait for spring to some so these can accompany me as I hop all around town.
Anyway, are you a novelty shoe fanatic or would you rather keep it classic and cool? Let me know in the comments below. Happy weekend!
My outfit of the day or outfit of the…. other day, if you will. This is actually an outfit I took a picture of late last week but haven’t been able to upload until now. I picked up these red silky-smooth paisley pants from Michael Kors last Summer and have loved finding fun ways to style them since. Sometimes they are a bit challenging to work with as they can quite easily look like a chic pair of pyjama pants, but that is all in the fun of them. You can see how I worked with them in my Vancouver Photo Diary post as well.
So what did I do? I pulled out a light white linen sweater by wilfred which has been a closet favourite for years. I paired the garmets with my oh-so-comfy Lanvin smoking slippers and added some of my favourite gold accessories- my Tory Burch stud earrings, a J.Crew necklace and my Michael Kors runway glitz watch.
I admit that the outfit is a little too fashion forward to 99.99999% of people here but I don’t mind the looks, it is nice to be comfortable without looking like a set of barn hands.
Oh the shameless selfie… As I was awkwardly approached last week at work for a picture for the yearbook I felt myself tumble into some sort of awful pit of dread knowing that I would never approve of the picture to be snapped. Kind of funny for a girl who enjoys a good picture of herself (no shame here…). The thing is, I like being the one taking that picture, I like being in charge. I like knowing that I can sit or stand there until I get it right. The only other person I feel comfortable enough to get to snap a picture of me is my dad.
Needless to say, I approached my coworker in a frenzy worrying about them using that terrible picture (that I never even saw). She simply replied jokingly “Well why don’t you send me a selfie then.” Joke or not, I am taking her up on it.
This is what I came up with:
