Dress? h&m by Sonia Rykiel
Plaid shirt? ?, Winners
Leopard pumps? Steve Madden, DSW
Belt? Roots, thrifted
I wear this shirt a lot. It's been on my blog often and countless times it's also my 'Matt's yelling at me to hurry up and I don't like what I'm wearing' back-up shirt. I try to wear something else but this shirt always wins. It's plaid, it's long enough to tuck in and it makes any outfit so cheery. I may not always be cheery but my shirt is. Hey, a plaid shirt doesn't have PMS...
I love taking pictures at this spot by the bay. Unfortunately, if the weather is nice, it's over run with people trying to cram in family time. It was rainy so I took advantage of the isolation and got some pictures. My shoes were also a product of the weather. I had other shoe plans but I didn't feel like dealing with squishy, wet toes from the rain. So I wore my trusty leopard print pumps. They are so comfortable and the shape is very classic and they work with anything. I have worn them a lot, so they have seen better days and the cobbler but they look nice out of direct sunlight. This winter I saw a pretty pair of zebra printed, horsehair (or cowhide?) booties and I thought they might make a good replacement. I didn't really need them, so I patiently waited for the final sales. I saw them later for $102 and I was still unsure. This kid needs at the very least 50% off and I figured I'd wait some more. At the bitter end of winter I saw that the store (a reputable chain store, no less...) had an extra 20% off final prices. I thought with another discount off $102 (it was about time for another discount), plus 20% off and I might be in for some wild new booties. I checked the price and they were marked back up to $120, minus 20%...so, let me do the math for you.... that makes the boots $98. I wait patiently for months for my boots and they are going to give me just $4 off? Is that even allowed? Jacking the prices up and down and tricking shoppers (not me... I'm too sale savvy)? Soooo... I didn't get the booties. And I added a store to my not cool list.
