Take Two

Music Playlist at MixPod.com

This morning was much better-thank you all for your thoughtful well wishes! However, I somehow managed to delete all the photo shots that I took of this outfit earlier, you know, when the lighting was perfect, the shots came out all smiley and my makeup didn't look like it had been blasted with heat all day. But, looking on the bright side, I did get these quickies in just before quarter sized raindrops fell.

As soon as I saw these cutie booties on the F21 website, I knew I had to have them.  I am a sucker for real quirky, statement kinda pieces and these are supposed to be inspired by 1920 football booties.  For the record, they are great with wide leg pants.  And skinny jeans.  And, they really (paired with the jacket) helped put the BA (that's Bad Ass for those of you who speak Dane Cook) in this outfit to even out the sweetness of the sheer floral skirt.

I honestly don't remember if I got this skirt from my mom or my sister or even if I thrifted it, but it is one that takes some . . . second looking or a once over if you will.  It's not something that jumped out at me like "oh, I love this", but I saw potential.  The blue us actually a silk layer under a black, sheer floral overlay.  Eh, I dig it.

  1. What a cute outfit, I love the booties as well!

    And you look radiant and fresh-faced, if you did not mention it I would have thought you took these at the start of the day!

    Hope it's been a happy day for you so far. :)
