Daily Threads: A Silhouette


{Mossimo Ruffle Blouse | Merona Black Cardigan | similar skinny jeans | similar booties}

I apologize. This lighting is horrible - you can really only see my silhouette. But it was raining. All day. If I wanted to be outside it was in a breezeway. The only thing you are really missing out on is the ruffle detail of the shirt, but this shirt is going to be pretty popular for the next thirty days, so hopefully you'll get a better look at it next time. Stupid rain. And stupid storm! The power went out for an entire 10 seconds, and now I have to re-set all the clocks in this place. Ugh - don't you hate that? I do.

Moving on to these shoes! I love them! I have wanted a pair of cognac, lace-up booties for a while and these were worth the wait! They look super high and uncomfortable, but there's a platform - which is every heel-lover's best friend. They are my new favorite pair of shoes!

Those shoes are to die for! I just got some similar ones in gray and I really love them too! Hmm, maybe I'll spoil myself after the 30 for 30 and go for a cognac colored pair as well!

Cute outfit! I love the shoes. I don't think I could ever wear shoes like that, they are so high.

Great outfit! I love the skinnies on you. You definitely have the legs to pull them off. And of course, the shoes are fabulous!

I have been wanting some booties in that color...stupid shopping ban, guess I will get them after the challenge is up! It has been raining off and on like crazy here too but that's better than the mountains of snow some bloggers have been getting.

I think it's a great silhouette- it sort of reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in funny face, but with more fun shoes!

Alessandra said...

I LOVE your booties! So chic. I have been hunting all over for the steve madden annton cognac wedges that are kind of similar to this but cannot find them for the life of me. We had rain all day yesterday too. So annoying.

LOVE those shoes...like seriously IN love! And I do seriously hate when the power goes out and you have to reset everything. Poops!

Work With What You've Got said...

Love this. The combination of the shoes and the pants make your legs look about one bajillion miles long!

Angela said...

You're a trooper! Even in the rain you found a place to take pictures outside :) I like your outfit.. the necklace and shoes look so pretty with the dark colors of the clothes.

LIZ said...

Jealous of your oxford pumps! And I can totally see the detail of your ruffle shirt, you know since I've been thinking about it all week since passing it up at Target.

Molly said...

Yeppers! Those shoes are fantasmagoric. Beautiful.

Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

I am in love with those shoes. You have inspired me to track down a similar pair of high heeled oxfords ASAP!

CC said...

Your shoes are awesome!

Lisa D. said...

Those shoes are killer! I keep trying to pair up my cognac platform oxfords w/my skinny jeans, but it just doesn't work for me w/my short legs. I'm going to have to live vicariously through you because you've definitely got the legs to pull off this look. Stay dry! =)

mk said...

I love those shoes and that outfit! After this shopping ban is over, I'm definitely going to be on the hunt for a pair of cognac lace-up booties!

Katie said...

You look great! Love the outfit :)

Melanie said...

Nice! Those booties are so freaking cute, but I agree--they look ridiculously high and not terribly comfortable. I guess looks can be deceiving! BTW-- great silhouette ;)
