Summer Flats: D’Orsays

d'orsay-flats

If I have learned anything while working at Anthropologie, it is the importance of killer accessories!  I have seen the cutest of outfits that consist of just a simple jeans and tee combination but the accessories have amped the outfit to be stellar. So lately, I have been really going through my shoe collection and paring down to a capsule of shoes that will not only be comfortable, but will add to my outfit in a way that clothes can’t. And I may be a little late coming to the trend, but I am currently loving D’Orsay flats!  They look so chic and classic, but yet modern at the same time.  Even just a basic color in this style of shoe looks so stylish- I’m in love! And did I mention how comfortable they are? I found a nude and black pair this weekend for my summer wardrobe capsule.d-orsay-flats-4d-orsay-flats-2 d'orsay flats-summer styled-orsay-flats

New Closet Addition: Sail Away Pullover

 

sail away: a summer pullover
I believe in versatility.  Before I buy something, I have to make up at least 4 outfits in my mind with my new piece- it may seem excessive but I don’t want to fill my closet with pieces I can’t wear together! At the store, I have been passing by this little pullover because I don’t normally buy anything with graphics or lettering since I usually think it’s hard to dress up a graphic. But the more I saw this top (and then felt how soft it was!) I knew it would be a great summer addition. Pairing this number over a button down with trousers or pencil skirts for the office or with my navy and white striped dress or shorts for running errands, this will get a lot of wear!

MK Nature Center and a New Shirtdress

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend.

Last week, Chase and I spent an afternoon downtown together- we grabbed lunch at Bleubird and walked around the fish ponds.  Moseying around the MK Nature Center is incredibly relaxing (and totally free!)- for all the local folks, if you have never gone, you should check it out!  There is a path right off of the greenbelt that connects to the Stream Walk- the walk includes an interior pond that is full of massive trout and some of the biggest sturgeons I have ever seen!

And I was super excited to wear my new Anthro dress- for someone who is 5’10” it is extremely hard to find dresses that are longer than just a tunic, so this Veronia Shirtdress is perfect!

Have a good Monday everyone!
