Blue and green (again)


I suspect these shoes will not last through the year. (Though that's not for a lack of quality.) When I bought them back in March I wore them at least once a week, and now I wear them at least twice a week, sometimes more. And I wear them to do ridiculously active things, like going on evening walks with Josh in our hilly neighborhood, or on hikes. They're so comfortable, though, and if I can be moderately comfortable while wearing heels, I will choose that over being incredibly comfortable in flats nearly every time. At least I only paid $20 for them, so when they inevitably fall apart at some point during the summer or fall, I won't feel like it was a waste of money. Do any of you have a piece of clothing (or a pair of shoes!) that you love so much you wear it until it literally falls apart?




Blue sweater: Gap
Green skirt: thrifted from Crossroads Trading Co.
Blue and green wedges: Nine West from Nordstrom Rack
Green hat: free from my aunt
Green necklace: purchased in Hong Kong
Turquoise bracelet: Charlotte Russe
Light blue bracelet: gift from my aunt, from B. Lee Designs

I'm linking this post up to Monday Mingle and Visible Monday.

  2. The sandals that I wore yesterday and I am wearing again today seem to be on a fast track to being a staple. I love these sandals and have yet to get sick of them yet! Great skirt too!

  3. I hate it when a beloved pair of shoes falls apart. nothing is sadder. but i guess you are right, when they do, they will have had a great life.

  5. I can see why you love those shoes. I've had a few favorite pairs literally fall apart, but they got a lot of love : > You look wonderful in your floral skirt!

  6. Beautiful outfit!! Seems so effortlessly chic! And I do have clothes I will likely wear until they fall apart, although there are some I am trying to wear sparingly so they last longer. :)

    And sometimes, I love my clothes so much that I start mourning their loss when I get them. Like the shirt I am wearing today. I love the color!!! But it's very unique so unless I go back and buy more from that store in that color, once this is gone, the color is gone.

    (So I might buy one of the jackets in this color)

  10. The wedges are absolutely perfect with this skirt. And I'll bet that the shoes are really comfy too. I teach school and my wedge heels are the most comfortable for being on my feet all day.
