Continuing with the swap, this time with an extremely versatile green sweater vest. I've said this before, but the one problem with participating in a swap is that you end up wanting to keep so many of the items. Alas, this will have to be the one that got away.

Meanwhile, I must profess my love for these darlings. They combine pretty much all shoe elements I coveted in the fall 2011 collections. Oh yeah, and they're cobalt. Sold.

Love it! Those shoes are everything anyone would ever need in a heel. I've been searching for cobalt shoes lately, just seems like the perfect color to be on feet haha.

Okay, so I totally just bought those same shoes off Zara's website. They're at a HUGE discount! I'm so excited! Be prepared to see those on my feet in 2-4 business days.

Oh those shoes! I adore them!!!

Lydia said...

I die over your shoe collection. I kind of can't believe those are Zaras! They look much more expensive.

LyddieGal said...

I'm completely smitten with your teal trousers, and i love the color gradation within the outfit.

Christina said...

I love how all of the colors of this outfit are completely different but look so perfect together. Too bad you have to give the sweater back. This would be an amazing office appropriate outfit for St. Patrick's Day.

Alison said...

The whole outfit is lovely..but the shoes really steal the show...and I NEVER think of Zara for great shoes..I need to "rethink" that, no?

Happy Weekend.

How have I never discovered your blog before?! You have such beautiful style: understated while maintaining personal style, chicness and a strong sense of sophistication. Such a rarity in a blogging world saturated with a "more is more" mentality. You're one of my new favourites! Oh, and great shoes!

By the way I added your blog to my "Non Mommy Inspirations" blog list on my site.

What a perfect outfit. Green is my favorite color so this is just amazing. The shoes are great too, very reminiscent of Alexander Wang.

That skirt is the best thing I've ever seen. Go crazy with your outfits, dude. Better to be known as crazy than normal.

Also, I know it has been a while, but for whoever has followed me in the past at www.lqvbr.blogspot.com. I have a new blog that I started with my two best friends! I will continue to write about fashion, music and discuss social issues and happenings. Please check it out and follow! It will be great!
