I started second-guessing these shoes right after I pressed “publish” on my fall capsule wardrobe. Are they too fancy? Will I actually wear them — you know, for more than say, 20 minutes?
The last time I put a pair of heels in my capsule wardrobe, it didn’t go so hot.
But. I’m happy to report that there is no more second-guessing in this girl’s brain anymore. Turns out I’d been craving some dress-up time after the world’s most casual summer wardrobe. I tend to want to dress up in the cold-weather months more anyway. Do you?
Oh, and you’re wondering how I’m getting along walking in high heels?
Well … eh, I’m still no pro, but it’s getting better. I’ve learned to moleskin the hell out of them + add sole cushions + do a heel-toe walk. (This video actually helped me understand the art of walking in heels.)
Anyway, we’ve established the fact that these shoes are cool. But let’s talk about the rest of the outfit.
Modern + minimal, but not boring because of texture. Loads of texture! The nubby knit of the sweater. The liquid smoothness of the leather leggings. Then throw a bit of pattern into the mix — the cutout shoes + the cheetah print clutch + the chevron necklace.
And it’s ON.
