Delicate

No, it is not your imagination, nor am I losing my mind. You will notice that, yet again, I am wearing the amazing sandals that I recently purchased by Michael Kors. I guess one could equate this type of behavior to that of a child who has just received a new toy, and continues to play with the toy until the newness wears out. Like a child, I'll continue to play with my new toy until the fascination decreases. However, that may be a long time from now, considering I am quite infatuated with them.

When I first introduced the sandals to you, I wore them with a classic ensemble in a post called On Broadway. Second, I paired them with a more edgy look in Dangerous. Now, I bring another look that shows how amazing the range of style these beauties truly have. Today, I'm wearing them with delicate pieces, a soft and flowing dress and a lovely wide-brimmed hat. How very important it is to invest in quality items that will truly enhance several items in your wardrobe. (tweet this)

Today's Look: Dress-Simply Vera Wang for Kohls, Sandals-Michael Kors via TJ Maxx, Hat-Eric Javitz via Nordstrom (old, but similar HERE)




 



I adore this outfit. What makes it interesting is the mix of styles. The soft, painterly dress and the hat offer a bit of nostalgia, while the shoes bring into play a more modern and edgy feel. I felt feminine, modern, romantic and playful all rolled into one. I enjoy playing with fashion, while remembering to stick to my personal style{wink}

    1. I'm sorry Cara. I tried to find the shoes online and I couldn't because the name isn't printed on the shoe.

      Thank you!

  3. That dress is so pretty! I love how you styled it with a hat and shoes that are more structured and serious played against the soft, floaty dress.
