Is anyone out there a shoes-person? *raises hand*
Well, let me share with you my new favorite pair. When I first put them on, it was after a long day of wearing these really tight shoes, so my feet were all swollen. Of course, I thought it would be a good idea to try on another pair of shoes. Anyway, I put them on and was like damn, I am so upset that these are uncomfortable. I mustered up the bravery to put them on again the next day, and they weren’t bad at all. In fact, for heels, I would say they’re pretty good on a comfort scale. It was like overnight, a miracle happened, and they became comfortable. That or my feet just shrunk back to a normal size.
Anyway, now that you’ve been introduced to the story of me trying on shoes, let me talk about these babies. They are literally perfect for work, job interviews, class, going out… They are so versatile. They’re little heeled, black lace-up oxfords which means they’re dressy enough to turn this casual outfit into something that looks a little more polished and casual enough to make a night outfit a little more bar-casual and a little less Vegas-strip-club. You’re going to be seeing so much more of them. I’m hoping to pair them with some business casual outfits in that series I mentioned a little earlier.

I listed this striped shirt once on Poshmark and despite the interest in it, it never sold. So, I finally bit the bullet and put it back into my closet where it’s currently living a great second life. The sweater is the perfect blanket sweater from my girls over at Maude boutique, complete with a cute little hood for those days where I just don’t want to make eye contact with anyone. This pair of jeans was a more recent purchase. After seeing these frayed hems everywhere, I bit the bullet when I saw this pair from Lucky Brand. They were half off too! I love Lucky Brand, so this is another one of my favorite new additions.
Since I’ve been shopping my closet a lot lately (and cutting back on spending), I try my best to link similar items below. A girl’s gotta save sometimes, ya know?
