shoes & sweaters.


sonoma sweater   ·   calvin klein skirt {thrifted}
blowfish mesa wedges    ·   merona scarf

happy monday! can i start off the week by talking about shoes?  i had a prepaid reward card i kept losing money on because i wasn't using it fast enough, so before the month of march was over i knew i wanted to spend the remaining balance.  the problem was, i didn't have many virtual shopping carts filled with items i wanted to keep an eye on.  i finally stumbled upon this pair of shoes at dsw.com and met my threshold of the card's balance.  is there too much going on with the faux-wedge/thick cone heel and cutout strap across my foot?  i wear my cognac colored wedges to death, so i figured having another shoe in a similar color but different style would be worthwhile.  plus, they meet the criteria i have for shoes these days (flat, wedge, or mary jane) and my resident who always scolds me for wearing high heels said they were a better alternative, so i guess they're keepers!

this sweater was also quite the find at kohl's yesterday!  i had a 20% off friends & family coupon plus i received a random $10 coupon in the mail.  i took a hot lap around the store and couldn't find anything in the shoe department or jewelry section that would come to around $10.  as i was about to leave, i saw a display of these sweaters in every color imaginable and i caught sight of a yellow clearance sticker on one of the tags.  they were marked down to $9!  i quickly grabbed two for myself and one for my sister and walked out of the store with all three for $13.  now that's my kind of deal!

get the look:  exact sweater / similar skirt / exact wedges / similar scarf
