Went to a friend’s rather cold soccer game on Friday and, shocker of all shockers, I was the one dressed most practically. Don’t worry, I won’t make a habit of it. Even so, I feel like it’s not hard to wear flats when they’re as adorable as these. I’ve been putting off buying the oh-so-boring “work flats” for much too long, but actually got excited when I found these. Downside: I did not find them on sale until after I wore them for the first time. You do not even want to know what terrible screams of rage poor B was subjected to upon this unfortunate discovery. Nothing irritates me more than discovering an item on sale after the fact. Question: why does Anthropologie insist upon re-naming items with their own cute little titles and conveniently leaving out the brand name? Most displeasing when one is scouring the Internet for, say, “Candela oxfords”…

PS I want to send a (terribly belated) thank you the Capricious Club for the lovely award!
I love your shoes! The lace detail is beyond amazing.
I. want. your. shoes.
a great look for a casual day out! perfect, as usual!
I really love your men's wear inspired outfits, they are genius I really love those shoes and am really debating whether to get them…haha
I love these oxfords!!!! The look is absolutely amazing!!! Another HIT! Maybe we'll run into each and grab coffee when I'm back in DC for Memorial Day.
I love this fabulous silhouette, and I ADOREADOREADORE those oxfords. Wow.
ugh… that's the worst! i hate it.. some stores will actually let you go back and get a price adjustment if they went on sale within a certain # of days that you bought them.. guess you could try that?
either way tho, they're def a keeper =D
I love your shoes!
I feel like i say this a lot, but THOSE ARE THE CUTEST SHOES I'VE EVER SEEN! I want them! I love the big, boxy sweater and the dainty shoes. So cute!
i love the flats! probably the first pair of flats that i've liked. normally i slowly back away, but you scored!
Wow, I love this. And yes, I never understood why Anthro doesn't mention the brand name of their wares. I've also been double crossed in the manner you describe.
I wasn't going to comment, but I had to leave a quick comment on your oxfords because they caught my eye last time at Anthropologie. They're just amazing. (:

Those oxfords are so awesome! And I feel your annoyance at the name change thing. I get that they're trying to be cute and creative, but that's what the description part is for. leave the name alone! 🙂
Very cool outfit. Man, those shoes went down in price A LOT. Was it very soon after you bought them? In CA you can take the receipt and get it adjusted for sale price but I think it has to be within 15 days or something like that. I am so debating buying them but I just bought too many new shoes lately.
Those are the cutest shoes! Black lace oxfords are genius.
those oxfords are super cute!!
So tomboy chic! I love this so so much!

I am insanely jealous of your lace oxfords!
The sweater is perfectly proportioned, granted it's a men's sweater, for those jeans, and the color matches perfectly with that bag. Love this look.
Amazing! Chic and Fabolous!
Yes! That annoys me so much too about Anthro. They want you to buy the shoes on their site/at their store rather than someone else's. Annoying. You look adorable though 🙂
Great oxford look.
That shoes are amazing!
Those shoes. Are amazing.
badass shoes indeed! i love how the lace makes the oxfords look sexy :D:D:D
I love the color of your sweater
THIS is perfect.. Those shoes are amazing and that first photo is gorgeous!
Wow! I think those shoes are such a great purchase! At least, you could wear them the moment you wanted and didn't have to wait for the sale… Sometimes the wait is so annoying…
Seriously, they're amazing! 🙂
Your shoes are fabulous! Practical but with a splash of sexy/bad-assness : )
Oh my gosh I'm drooling over those shoes! How fabulous they are!! I'm off to check out the oxford site. Might have to get a pair for myself!

Hi my dear! All of your posts are beautiful surprises and read your blog is always a pleasure.
I really like your shoes and the outfit is perfect!
Big kisses from an italian fashion blogger 🙂
This is such a gorgeous look, and those shoes are amazing!
You look fabulous. I love those oxfords & hate when you find something on sale after you bought/wore them for the first time. That usually happens to me too!
This totally reminds me of a look I wore all the time when I was younger. I love the hunter green and the skinny jeans. Your version is infinitely more chic. Very lovely!
Prettiest oxfords EVER!!
I LOVE sweaters worn over collared shirts. The skinny jeans balance things out perfectly, and those shoes are indeed adorable. Love this look!
Oh my, I adore those shoes. I might just have to buy them…
I like this look, so comfy and preppy! I'm doing a Rodarte for Target tulle dress giveaway, if you're interested, please feel free to enter 🙂
Those shoes are INCREDIBLE! I am swooning.
Love this look, so cute and preppy!
Consider yourself linked lady!
