Usually, if I need a chic, easy outfit, I will throw on something simple and then put on a great pair of heels. I immediately feel "dressed" and confident.
The same day that I had an event to attend (the Saint Louis Fashion Week Kickoff Party - do you have your tickets for Fashion Week yet?), I made a quick stop into a Goodwill and found both this top and these shoes. The top was actually a wrap top, which wasn't going to wrap anything on me, so I cut off the ties and sewed down the raw edges. The shoes - well, I had been coveting them for a while, but had been trying to save my usual clothing budget for upcoming baby stuff. They're from Sam & Libby from Target, originally retailed at $40, now currently on sale on Target's website for $32, and I paid $8 at Goodwill! How could I resist?!
So, long story short, I felt awesome - for about 45 minutes. Luckily, I found a parking spot right outside the venue and could only stay for said 45 minutes, so I made it, but my back was not happy the next day. One pitfall of late pregnancy. However, I freakin' love these shoes and they'll be back in the rotation soon.
For the next 4-6 weeks, I'll be sticking to flats...
