School House Rock

Jeffrey Campbell's "Lindy" is the cutest effing saddle shoe I have ever laid eyes on. Urban Outfitters had them on sale. Being the shoe junkie that I am...a few days later they arrived on my doorstep. Although they have a wide range of options for a statement shoe. I wanted their first paring to be sort of retro/ school inspired. This of course did not mean I dress like a stripper's interpretation of a catholic school girl. Just taking a few elements. Crisp collared shirt. Short but, clean silhouetted skirt. A school inspired jacket, and of course the saddle shoe's best friend, ankle socks. My actual school bag was thrown in the mix too...for school purposes, I guess. The finished look?! Yay, not a stripper! Just a something a bit fun.

Highlighters and Sunburns.

A recent trip to the beach left my ghostly white legs, crisp. Through no fault but my own, they were exposed to ridiculous unprotected hours of sun. Thanks to my dad, I've got some Latin spice. I tan like a mo fo. Therefor my burnt legs quickly turned to a rad base tan. Just in time to enjoy the summer sun wearing colors that compliment a tan. NEON! While breaking at work I wandered into a 3rd st. promenade shoe store. Iced coffee in hand I roamed the floor, admiring, but no plans to purchase. Wouldn't you know it, I spotted something irresistible. Patent leather oxfords in a few colors. One of those colors, a beautiful neon pink. At 50% off of $50...there was no question. Highlighter shoes and the starts of a summer tan. Happy camper.
