Daily Threads: T-Strap Debut


{shirt, pants, & belt: j crew | cardigan: liz claiborne | shoes: isaac mizrahi for target}

I almost re-took these photos. After uploading them onto my 'puter I realized that the camera was focused elsewhere and the quality (once zoomed in) is horrible. Then I did a bit of editing and decided I could live with them - hope you can too!

Today's look is most definitely J Crew inspired. I love how J Crew has transformed over the past couple years. They sometimes go for a hipster-chic (but still classic) kind of theme and it speaks to me. I just love it. And these shoes... probably my favorite pair. T-straps are classic, but sassy.

It's rainy and gloomy here. Makes me want to change back into husband's sweats and fall asleep on the couch. But I won't. I have some cleaning to do and if I get things done, I may even take a trip to the stores and shop some sales. Happy Wednesday!

edit// I've had a few people ask about the shoes. They are not a recent buy - I purchased these in November of 2008 at Target. Since they are Isaac Mizrahi for target try a Google or Ebay search? (here's a 7.5 and another)

This just may be one of my favorite Linley looks yet. I am definitely getting a JCrew vibe this look - absolutely lovely.

I love the ruffles on the shirt and those shoes are amazing. I'm seriously considering bidding on some on ebay.

Very sophisticated outfit--love the T-straps with the cropped pants. I agree about the J. Crew aesthetic. My bf's aunt got me a gift card for Christmas and I am BEYOND excited to go on a shopping trip!

I'm glad you linked to the shoes on eBay because I was about to flip when I first saw them, ready to rush to Target immediately! They're much more flattering than vintage t-staps, which tend to cut the wearer off at the ankle.
That shade of pink just works for you. All at once, you look delicate and strong, flowery and tough. Love it!

Sooo true about J.Crew! I keep copies of their recent catalogs on hand for whenever I feel uninspired by my closet.
This outfit is so sweet and romantic but modern as well..gorgeous! If Anthropologie and J.Crew had a child, this would be it =]
