Let's just assume this week is likely going to be all about J.Crew, with the sale and new arrivals coming. ;)J.Crew's extra 30% off sale is still going strong this week (code MUSTHAVE), with some new markdowns this morning, including the cute Blouson Dress in cerise stripe (I take a 2 in these dresses), the Kira sandals in leather, the Martina tortoise wedges (I have the flats, and they are worn constantly), and some really fun jewelry (snail bracelet, beehive pendant)
Kira Printed Sandals -- I know the apple print is love/hate, and I'm in the love camp, but not on every item. I couldn't do the Jardin skirt, but a little bit of red apple on my feet? Yes, ok. They were marked down during the last extra promo, and I snagged a size 9. They have a leather lining, and the upper is a kind of canvas-y feeling fabric. When I tightened the buckle to fit snugly, the buckle rubbed a bit on my ankle. So I went down a hole or so, and it fell below my ankle bone and was totally fine. I do wish they'd have made the between-the toes section leather or something smoother (and less likely to attract dirt), but overall they're really darling.
Here's how I'll wear them first:
Viv Patent Flats -- These babies were marked down recently, and pretty much flew off the online shelves quickly. So they're sold out now, but might pop back now and then. A great basic flat, in a great emerald green -- hard to pass up! I sized up to a 9 for these, due to the pointy toe and less-elastic patent, and am glad I did. Definitely couldn't have gone with 8.5. So cute with pinks, yellows, and navys this spring, but all just for a nice pop of color with neutrals. Jewelry for your feet.
Olympia Leather Sandals -- These were $60 in store before discount, and I grabbed a 9 and thought they'd be a definitely purchase. But after putting them on, they just felt...not me. Too clunky or something and not all that flattering on me for some reason. They were super comfortable, and you can slide them on and off w/o unbuckling (huge plus IMO), and the red color was lovely. But if it isn't love, it's not for me. :)
What do you think of this batch of shoes?
Have a great day!
