Lady Lunching

IMG_3214IMG_3215I happened to have a lunch meeting at the country club. The occasion created the perfect excuse to dress like a lady who lunches. I think Dorothy would approve.

What I Wore: Tunic/Cape/Sequins – oh my!

what I wore: pants (similar here)/bow ringforever21, heels – bcbgeneration (similar here), tunic – jaloux, ear cuff – icing

You can’t really tell in the photos but the tunic/cape is very sheer so I wasn’t as overheated as it looks.

Bridal Inspiration {Shoes}

In dreamland, my bridal shoes would be Miu Miu, McQueen, Jimmy Choo or Louboutin. Dream with me, won’t you? This is if I go the more traditional route…I will have to devote an entire post to non-traditional shoes.

Socks with Sandals?

The age-old question, “can I wear tights with open-toed shoes?” has taken on new meaning for me lately. I am ever-more tempted to wear socks with my blatantly strappy sandals. I actually think it looks really cool. Why should all those perfectly fun cutout platforms be hidden away during cold weather? I do realize that one has to be careful with outfit decisions, as this trend can easily go awry. But I think I’m going to try it! What about you?

If you want to try the trend but don’t want to spend a lot of cash, try Forever21 or ASOS. What do you think about these socks with these platforms? Click the pictures to shop!
