Jungle Fever

Saturday afternoon I popped in to Aldo on the hunt for flat black sandals of some sort, as I have no flat sandals that survived the summer last year. While I did fulfill the need for black sandals, they definitely aren't flat - I walked away with these fun suede lace up sandals which I justified for two reasons:

a.) They were regularly $100, on sale for $70, and they were having a 50% off sale - that's right, these were $35.

b.) They are suede and sturdy enough that they can easily be worn with tights in the fall. I'm all about multi-seasonal clothes & shoes, as our summer is sooo short.

Also, I have Kristin to thank for telling me about his cute leopard print blouse - she found it for $18 and I rushed in the next day to get it. Copycat/Twinsies! 










Blouse: Urban Planet, Skirt: Lush (Envy), Shoes: Aldo, Bracelets: Joe Fresh and H&M, Clutch: ASOS, Sunglasses: Le Chateau

  5. I had to go on the hunt for a new pair of sandals too since my favorite ones died at the end of last summer too. And I ended up getting a pair of suede ones too.
    Love the whole outfit, I think the hint of color with the clutch is perfect.

  6. You are so cute in the feline print, and the pair of suede lace ups is so beautiful and for a steal of a deal!

  63. What a great deal, Kate! I wish we had Aldo here on Maui (it's only on Oahu, in Hawaii).. and it's a bummer that they don't even ship to Hawaii!

    I'm also loving your blouse. I NEED IT! Is Urban Planet a local store there in Canada?

    Happy Canada Day to you!! Any fun plans?

    xx Love & Aloha
