Birthday Shoes

Shirt:  Vintage, thrifted
Cardi:  TJMaxx
Skirt:  Hot Mama
Shoes:  Go Jane

This outfit was an attempt at venturing outside of my style comfort zone.  It gets a C- for making me feel matronly.  I just can't seem to 'own' the maxi look, yet I continue to try.  Whatever.  This post isn't really about the outfit anyway.

Here, let me help you see those shoes a little better...

I got them at gojane.com for $13.95.  They were a birthday present to myself (yeh!).  They come in natural too, but the black seemed more dramatic.  They run big - that's no joke.  I'm usually a 7 1/2 - 8, and the size 7 fits me perfectly.  The heel slips a little bit, but other than that, they are super comfortable.

Buyers beware - Modcloth has these in red for $44.99  - (gasp!).  I love me some Modcloth and browse daily often, but the markup slays potential purchases.  Boo.

Is today your birthday???? Happy birthday!!!! I like your look actually--not matronly at all! Just cozy and casual. Those shoes are pretty killer as well.

Thanks, Franny! Birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and I'm just now getting around to wearing (blogging) my purchases! :)

Happy belated birthday! Those shoes are cute, and I am trying to fight looking at the red version. I love red.

OMGosh! I have that same top and never know how to wear it! Most recently I've worn it with skinny jeans. Love how you have it here!
