Urban Shoe Myth







There is something really crisp and fun about Stella McCartney's Spring collection. This look in particular feels simple, classic, and really easy to re-create. I added just a little bit more quirkiness to it with the baby floral socks.

I actually like my See by Chloe skirt a little better than the Stella version because it is a little more slouchy and less boxy. It's really interesting that this Chloe skirt is almost identical to the Stella version considering Stella used to hold the design reigns at Chloe a decade ago.. That's fashion coming full circle for ya.

Both the skirt and the shoes were found way marked down at Bergdorf Goodman.. Even though I can't afford tons of designer pieces full price, I still go to the big stores for inspiration and to find classic pieces marked down that have a long closet shelf life.. Like, for example, these Manolo Mary Janes.. Carrie called them an Urban Shoe Myth, but I can also proudly put that myth to rest.

I also just got a hair cut.. Can you tell? Probably not, which is good because I don't trust hairdressers so I make them only cut a little. Someone asked me recently about my hair routine and it is pretty simple. I use Pantene Beautiful Lengths Shampoo and blow it about 70% dry.. then I put it up in a loose bun on top of my head until it dries all the way... Then all I do is take it down and go! I actually learned that trick from Gisele so I figured it was a good one..

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
