Ways to Wear It: Part II









Outfit
Blazer: BB Dakota via Loehmanns
Top: Forever 21
Skirt: H&M see it differently here.
Wedges: Sam Edelman Javi get a closer look here.
Necklace: Kenneth Cole $19 fashion STEELE! via Loehmanns

Here's my favorite top again in ways to wear in part II. These Sam Edelman wedges are ultra comfortable. They were a gift from my mother for my birthday. Check out my other birthday splurges HERE! I got these wedges at Nordstroms. The design of the heel is what caught my eye. The heel of the shoe is very detailed and I love the extra height of the back portion of the wedge. I love this skirt so much that I got it in this off white color, black and orange. The cut of it is just so unique and flattering.

I have totally turned into a platform/wedge woman. The last 5 pairs of shoes I've gotten are all either platforms or wedges. The awesome thing about wedges are how freaking comfortable they are. I'm the kind of girl who wears heels to go shopping so in a city with concrete streets like New York you need great sturdy shoes. Wedges and platforms certainly take the edge off.

I'm also the type of girl that loves shopping alone. I hate having to wait for my friends..lol. I usually have a set vision when I go shopping. I also really like showing others where to find awesome deals which is why I started the Thrift and the City shopping tour. Check it out if you are in the NYC area.

What kind of shopper are you? Do you like shopping alone or with friends?

Which ways to wear it do you guys like better? This one with the forever 21 shirt or the previous look with the Zara stripe skirt?

XOXO

  1. That really is a pretty blouse! I like to shop alone too. Shopping with my sister and mom is fun also, but you can really concentrate alone and obsess over items like I tend to do! Shopping with people is more like a social event. That skirt is sooo cute! love it

  7. I have become a TOTAL wedge person! Yours are beautiful - your Mom has great taste! And I love that skirt! I tried to recreate a similar gathered effect on a regular skirt of mine and somehow it's not quite the same!

    Thanks for visiting us, your blog is lovely!

  26. Yellow is such a great colour on you and I love the detailing of this skirt's waistband and those wedges are fierce! I also prefer to shop alone- it's more efficient and you can focus on you :)

  27. honestly, this is super hard to decide. i love it this way too! you look great in both ways to wear it. and, like you, i love to wear wedges because they do take the edge off--and i also enjoy shopping by myself--so much easier!
