When I opened up the plain brown box and saw this cover for the shoebox I was super-excited. And then even more excited when I put the shoes on my feet and knew that I was in for a new love affair. Especially since I got these on super-sale :).
I had a more inventive outfit in mind to pair with these heels as their debut, but unfortunately there was not enough time in the morning to try it out, so I quickly scanned my closet for a simple dress. This J.Crew beauty was pulled out and kept. Paired with my two-tone belt and black cardigan it was already a winner. And I threw on this necklace (a new favorite - I would probably wear it with everything I owned) cause I knew its versatility would work well with this outfit. I also tried out my black floral pin pinned to the belt, but it didn't make sense or look good enough to keep, so it was discarded.
I feel like it was a challenge to take pictures today. I didn't feel like I was getting any good shots and then my camera battery died and I was stuck with what I had. Fortuitously I ended up really liking these shots.
Hooray! Love my new loves...
And once I get my camera batteries charged up again I will post some pictures of the TOMS that I need help styling! Thanks for the ideas so far!
