Classic with a twist

All remixed except shirt
Shirt: Gap
Skirt: Ann Taylor
Shoes: Steve Madden
Belt: Banana Republic
Earrings: Kohl's

This is what I wore Friday to volunteer. I have to say that I like button up shirts more in theory than in practice. I love the look of this outfit, but I hate feeling like my shirt is gaping all day long. It cooperated, mostly in this outfit, but I changed into jeans and sandals for the drive to Boston, and then my shirt decided it hated me.

Anyway, I really like the way this looks, especially with the bright blue shoes. Y'all should prepare to be tired of these shoes and this belt. I've been wearing them a ton this summer, and I don't see that ending any time soon.

I guess I just can't resist brights and leopard, especially together.
We'll be back from our mini-vacation in Boston on Monday, and I should be doing some regular posts after that. Can I just say that if it weren't for the winters, I'd be all about living in Boston? I just really hate winter....


  1. SO pretty! Love it. I will not get tired of the shoes or belt. I like it better when i see people remixing the same items - its what us people in the real world do! :-)

  2. "I have to say that I like button up shirts more in theory than in practice."

    same here. maybe it's because I have boobies :D

  3. I'm not sure I could ever get tired of blue shoes! This only solidifies my desire for buying fun shoes.

    I was at a baby shower the other night and participated this conversation:
    "K I like your new shoes! They're so red"-me
    "Thanks! P says he likes them too."-K
    "I have red shoes and I never wear them because I don't know what they go with."-L
    "Just pair them with neutrals for a pop of color!"-K

    I'm totally going to tell K about your blog.

  4. Looking pretty again! I love that belt that you have it just gives a little pizzaz to all of your outfits!

  5. Trust me when I say, if I owned a leopard print belt and bright blue shoes like yours, I would most definitely be wearing the heck out of them.

    You look fantastic, and you just go ahead and wear those all you want! They're awesome!

  6. @ Bianca - I am a remixer. Hahaha

    @ Fer - Yes, exactly!

    @ Too Tall - That's pretty much hilarious. Get some fun shoes, girl! ;)

    @ Shey - Thanks. I feel like it's served as the focal point for a lot of outfits lately, and I love it so much.

    @ Melissa - Ha ha ha! I will definitely keep wearing the heck out of these pieces. They just might make it to Turkey with me.

  7. I don't think I will ever tire of those shoes. I think out of the shoes I've seen you wear they top my list. It is just a beautiful color of blue.

  8. I've been eyeing some blue suede shoes at Modcloth, you made such a great outfit here! Must copy :)

  9. Nice outfit, I too am very talented in the art of looking away from the camera! :)

    I really like your blog so I've joined your followers.

    If you get chance please take a look at my blog Thank you! xxx

  10. love how you added flair with the blue shoes and the leopard belt!

  11. Thanks ladies! I'm going to wear these shoes as much as possible as long as the weather permits. And they're so comfortable they just might make it to Turkey for vacation.
