Oh! You Pretty Things

This outfit is a true testament as to why one should never throw anything away. Aside from the espadrilles (we’ll get to those babies in a minute), every bit of this outfit has been in my closet for years. I bought the skirt last spring, the bag is about two years old, and honestly, I think I got the shirt when I was a sophomore in highschool. Talk about bang for your buck! Now onto the shoezzz…

I received these pretty things last week and was at first a bit skeptical because of the ginormous platform. Would I be able to walk or would I be galumphing around like a dog wearing socks? Well, get this my friends: I walked TWENTY blocks in these suckers and not once did I trip, stumble, groan, cry, or even feel the slightest hint of a blister. Now that’s my kind of shoe! Another perk? They’re super duper flattering and make your legs look like they go on for days which is always a plus in my book. So, if you’re going to learn anything from this post my young grasshoppers, learn that throwing your old clothes out is silly and that you should probably buy these shoes. Now. Go on…don’t be shy…do it!

    I like seeing you in sweet adorable colors and fabrics, don’t know why but it just makes you glow. The orange looks perfect with your skin tone. Love that delicate skirt, so pretty in spring. The best part is the high waist, it makes your legs endless

    I LOVE finding those hidden “oh how did I forget I owned you” pieces in the closet! I have been on the hunt for the perfect espadrilles for a while now. Thanks for the tip!

    I love those shoes! Ninewest is my favorite shoes that I buy from, not necessarily my favorite looking but they do a great job with design and comfort. Great photos!
