I’m in love


Sweater: J.Crew outlet (similar) (similar for $15)

Jeans: AE (buy)

Shoes: Ivanka Trump (buy)

Scarf: H&M (similar) (here at Asos

Ok, so the last time I wore these shoes I didn’t tell you if they were comfy or not.  Since it was love at first wear I thought my judgment might have been clouded and you might not have heard the truth.

Well, I wore them again to work today….and oh my…I’m in l.o.v.e.

I wore my Banana Republic trench coat with this outfit and I seriously loved the whole outfit (and I don’t say that every often about anything I wear). It felt put together, chic but it didn’t look like I tried hard. Simple outfits are definitely my favorites. 

Now about the fit. When I tried them on the for the first time I thought I might have to size up, half size. It felt a bit tight in the toe area. I decided to wear them around the house with the socks..hoping the toe area will stretch a bit. It might have worked. The first time I wore them was with tights and today bare foot and both times I was able to be all day in these babies (and they’ve been getting a lot of  compliments).

    I love this look! I have a black & grey leopard print scarf from Express and I love the animal print accent in my outfit when I'm wearing something simple! Not to mention, i like your shoes too!

    I love the shoes. Because of you, I will probably purchase these. Ivanka should thank you!! On another note, tell me about AE jeans. I don't do inexpensive denim because it stretches and I hate pulling on it all day. How are these skinny jeans?? They look superb on you (as I imagine anything would). Are they just as great after multiple washes and wear? And if not, what skinny jeans work for you?? LOVEEEE your blog (as I've mentioned previously)!

    This is such a great simple outfit- one of my favorite outfits of yours. I love the shoes with those skinny jeans; but then again those shoes are so beautiful I think they would look great with just about anything.

    Thank you ladies. 🙂 Right now these are definitely my favorite pair of pumps.@Virginia – You're so sweet 🙂 Thank you! I'm picky about my jeans but this pair is a great fit. They stretched just a tiny bit, but I hardly notice it with these jeans. I've washed them quite a few times and actually dried them in the dryer and they still look great. I just got another pair of skinnies from AE, lighter color, they're different fabric and even though they're same size the fit isn't as good at this dark pair. My only complaint – I wish they were not super low cut.
