shoe alert! shoe alert! i may have just found my new favorite pair. if you have been following the blog for any length of time, you may have noticed i sometimes become attached to my latest purchase. and you see it on numerous occasions. like this black handbag with faux bamboo handles, i’m carrying in today’s ootd. we’ve seen it here, and here, and, yes, here too. this same habit applies to shoes. who remembers my orange louis et cie shoes? seen here, and here, and here. or my black and brown ivanka trump loafers? well, you get the point. but guess what? oops, i did it again. this time with a pair of pointy-toed slingbacks from j.crew. several of my all-time favorite flats from years gone by were purchased from my fav preppy store. and i have a feeling these cap-toed beauties are going to join the hall of famers. don’t you just love the first blush of love?

OMG, I put those shoes in my J Crew cart two days ago as well! I think we have the same taste. they look great on you! I am a sucker for a spectator style shoe, and this one looked like a winner. And I have used that black bag over and over again this summer–I love it. You look elegant.
i told you we were separated at birth! so you better go back and add these shoes to your cart. you won’t be sorry. i know these will be on heavy repeat here on the blog…
The shoes were the first thing I noticed! I, too, am a sucker for spectators. It stems from my girl-hood when the stylish grown-up ladies wore them. They have always seemed to be the height of good taste to me.
thanks for stopping by. we are of like mind because i vividly remember my mother always swooning over spectator shoes! i guess they just never go out of style.
The shoes steal the show! They are fabulous without being over the top. It’s great to see pretty flats. xoxo
aren’t these cap-toed beauties the best! and super comfy, get ready, ‘cuz you will be seeing these on repeat in the months to come.
This outfit would be perfect for me when I go to our summer conference. Business casual. Cool, trendy, and professional! I love it!
girl, you are just on the move! but this vest jazzes up any skirt, pant or shorts. have fun!
