An Old Man Mowing A Lawn Made Me Do It!

Worn to work Thursday, April 21




 

Dress-Ann Taylor Loft/Cardi-BR/Necklace-Macy's/Shoes-Urban Outfitters

Never before have I worn socks (tights) with open toes sandals...so today is huge milestone!!  Just bought these shoes at Urban Outfitters and they reminded me of something at Andrea from
The Blonde Bedhead or Jen from Jen Loves Kev would wear with tights or socks...so I thought, I love their style, so I will try it too...force myself to think outside my comfort zone. Know what...I love the look.  These sandals have enough of a wedge to  make me feel tall and the open toes remind me that spring might just be coming.  I have a feeling that these sandals are going to become a staple this spring and summer...cannot wait to wear them sans socks! Since it was sunny out today...just so you know, sunny does not mean warm here in Chicago...I decided to take a detour via the lake front on my way to work.  Evanston has so many great places to take pictures...there are just not enough days that I actually have the time to explore them.

Now that I have my timing issues worked out with my camera remote, it definitely makes taking pictures more fun and much easier!

LOVING the wedge sandals with tights. You look awesome. The location is really pretty, too. I think I've convinced myself enough times to step out of the box that I truly don't care what anyone else thinks, anymore. It's a good feeling. :)

Love how the bright yellow necklace echoes the warmth of the animal print!

That yellow necklace totally gives this outfit a 'wow' factor. Love the combo with the animal print cardi. The sandals look really cool. They look good with tights but their detail will probably show more on barefeet or colored tights even better! :)

Love the tights with open toed shoes look on you! As well as the bright pop of that necklace.

Those shoes are amazing, with the tights, and probably without them, as well. I can't wait to see that look, too :)

And I love the cardigan!

Woah lady! You are looking all kinds of awesome in this outfit. The necklace really stole the show until I saw the shoes. Home run.

I love this location! And you get a big YAY from me for both tights and open toes and (especially) for stepping outside your comfort zone. I love your necklace - it's so bright and sunny!

I really love your necklace and shoes. I also love how you wore them with tights a la some of your faves. Those shoes actually remind me a bit of Jen, as well ;) Looking great :)

ADORE the necklace. Especially with the leopard cardi. Here's to pushing the boundaries of our comfort zone! The wedges are fab.
