Top: Asos | Skirt: Urban Outfitters | Heels: Christian Louboutin | Glasses: Prada

What I β™₯Β about fashion is that it gives us permission to be fearless & experimental. To once in awhile, push us out of our comfort zone.

Except…leather & pleats ARE my comfort zone, so there’s that πŸ˜‰

*I have to give a big shoutout to the Hubbs, who surprised me with these red soled beauties the night before I left for Vegas a few weeks ago. I was shocked! They are my very first pair, which makes them all the more special. The truth is, I’ve always heard such horror stories from other gals about how uncomfortable they are, so I was always leery about investing in such a shoe. This one has aΒ square toe and much lower heel than the “So Kate” pair, so they are actually pretty comfortable. I was able to wear them last weekend for 5 hours straight, no problem!

Thanks for stopping by!Β XO

    Good job, Peter!! I was going to ask you what style this was because I’ve had my eye on a pair too but I figured I would look like an Amazon woman if I got the So Kate since the heel is super high haha! These look so fabulous on you and I’m in love with that ruffle one shoulder top. Have a great week, Shauna!
