I Heart Saddle Shoes

Skirt: Banana Republic Outlet
Knit top: Forever 21, thrifted
Tank: Nordstrom
Cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft
Tights: For Love 21
Shoes: Urban Outfitters

This outfit started with the Urban Outfitters saddle shoes that my mom gave me for Christmas. You wouldn’t think it would be hard to build an outfit around saddle shoes, but today, for me, it was. I knew I wanted to wear them with this skirt, but I also really wanted to wear some cute ankle socks and go bare legged; however, the low temperature tonight will be in the 30s and I’m staying out late, so I had to stick to my typical tights. Also, this skirt is hard to work with because it doesn’t fit me that well. It sits too low on my body and looks a little off from the back as a result, but I keep wearing it because I love the pattern on it so much. As long as I pair it with a very fitted, not-too-short top that hugs the waist, it’s okay. I had wanted to wear a peach top with the gray, but it turned out to be too loose at the waist, and I wasted more time trying to tuck it in and create a paper-bag waist with a belt, etc. Despite all that, I am pretty happy with the final result! And this is the first time I’ve worn this heart-patterned top that I found at Goodwill months ago, so I feel a sense of accomplishment.

  1. I was just going to say, I've never seen those shoes before! They're adorable. I think you're right that little socks and bare legs would work really well- but eff that for now, it's freezing!
