While We Go Dancing

Saturday night I went to a farewell party for my friend J, who is heading to Brazil for a month! It was a warm enough night to finally bare leg, and also to finally debut these shoes I've been holding in my closet since January!

Sometime last year I was looking at Lena's blog, Elenita, and fell instantly in love with the shoes she wore in this post! I looked them up immediately, as she looked so stunning in them, only to find her Surface to Air beauties rang it at just under $500. Insert broken heart.

Then, sometime in January, while perusing the Forever21 website, I spotted these. For 35 bucks. And I ordered them immediately. Thank you, Forever21, for making dreams come true!

The quality of these photos is not great, as it was dark by the time I was ready & had to take photos indoors. I always feel a little extra silly posing in my bedroom!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Happy Monday!

  9. That's so funny because that's the exact same thing that happened with me! I saw Lena's shoes way back and googled them and were like, "They are HOW much?!" and when I saw the F21 ones, I had to have them! Haha! Love it!

  10. That top is AWESOME and how exciting about the shorts!

    I like that you posted in your bedroom (even though you said you felt silly) as it's cool to see how you've decorated (looks nice!)

  12. Oooh I love the detailing on your top! It's so amazing, and I really love the uneven hem at the bottom. It makes the top so much more interesting :]

  13. Great look! I really like the long top, belted over a fitted skirt - not something I've thought of before, but always nice to get new ideas about how to wear stuff - one of the things I love about style blogs!
