We all know how much I love dresses but sometimes, when chasing a toddler, shorts are an absolute necessity. And there is something fun about dressing up my distressed denim with a more 'proper' / preppy style top as it kind of speaks to who I am. Somewhat put together, somewhat distressed. A jazzy casual mess. That's me.
And then I came across these awesome shoes at Nordstrom Rack and decided to treat myself to an early birthday present. I have been looking for sandals like this for awhile as I know ZARA had a pair in all nude last season but I never got them. I hated myself for that. And then I found this pair while looking for graduation shoes for Sweet Pea and I figured they were meant to be. Originally, I had planned on them jazzing up shift dresses and skirts and maybe the occasional dressy short but when I threw them on with this combo it just felt right. And to be honest, the only reason I was wearing them is because I was in need of a paint job on my toes but lacked the time and energy to devote to picking a color and then actually painting them! It just worked out that they happened to look awesome and took my otherwise pretty plain and boring outfit to fun and flirty!
So there you have it. One of my random weekday outfits that worked!
