31 July and 1 August 2012: Summery

I love the color of this dress, although it’s sometimes hard to wear, but I think the length is problematic.

I wanted to wear my new white sandals, but it pushed it over into total Lucy Ricardo territory. Not my aim of the day.

I think I might have strayed old lady style in these sandals, too. Rats. Maybe it’s just my mindset, I’ll keep trying.

Jane requested a better shot of the other new sandals:

Two inch cork wedges, super comfortable and easy to walk on. But are the colors/braids better suited to an old lady? Tell me true, because I think I can still return them.

  1. Love love love the pink dress on you – the length is fabulous on you as well. Why do you think the length is problematic to begin with? It looks as if it hits you right below the knee – which is a super flattering length.
    Thanks for a better shot of your sandals. I dig the cork heel. They do look really comfy & easy to walk on. I say keep ’em because something made you like them enough to buy them to begin with & finding comfy shoes is so darn tough anyways. Yeah, the color & straps are kinda old lady-ish……but….having comfy shoes that fit matters quite a bit. BUT….if you don’t really love them & you doubt you’ll reach for those first, second or third..then it’s always better to hold out for a better pair! So there ya go – clear as mud eh!


    • Hmm hmm hmm. I guess I feel like the skirt is maybe an inch or so too long? Or maybe I think that because it’s so voluminous, which didn’t quite show through in the picture. I love the color, but it’s a whole lot of bright to wear all over – sometimes I have to gear myself up to be that noticeable, you know?

      Maybe I just need to embrace the old-ladyness of them and choose to rock it. I need brown sandals and Karey has a point that they could look cute with pedal pushers. I need to play with styling so I get used to them and they become a go to.


  2. I’m with Jane. The dress length looks fantastic on you! Other than saying, try those sandals with clam diggers or pedal pushers instead, I shall stay quite clear of the shoe discussion. As you know, in general my thoughts on shoes are ‘yuck’. 😉
