Date Night

6.09.2012


Elizabeth and James chain mini skirt, 
Vero Moda mesh panel tee, 
Ralph Lauren sandals (similar style here), 
Vintage lariat necklace, 

Micol is always trying to get me to invest in new shoes. Not because I don't have any, but because most of them are black, platforms or wedges, and not exactly the kind of shoes you would slip on to attend a dressy event. 

So when she found this strappy pair of beige heels in my closet, she was more than a little surprised. I was forced to buy these shoes when I was a bridesmaid at our friend Meena's wedding, and literally threw them into the back of my closet when the event was over, certain I would never wear them again.

Never say never! Micol discovered them one night as we tried to come up with an outfit for me to wear to a fancy dinner with my boyfriend. She had to force me to try them on at first, but I must say... I kind of liked them! I loved that the nude color and the dainty shape made me instantly feel more feminine. And paired with a super tight, metallic mini and a bright clutch, I heard no complaints from my boyfriend either.

  3. Great date night outfit! Love the mini skirt. I don't have many pairs of dressy shoes either. I really need to invest in a pair esp since I'm a bridesmaid this summer at my friends wedding.

  24. I think the shoes look great – and the chain mini toughens them up nicely. Plus, simple shoes like that always come in handy for additional bridesmaid duties.

  31. Love the heels!!! It's good your friend forced you to wear them again cuz they do not belong at the back of your wardrobe! I think they look lovely on you and the straps gives it that sexy edge when paired with your metallic skirt.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog by the way!!!=D
