Occasion: Work and lunch with a friend
What I'm wearing: Love 21 top, H&M skinny pants, Forever 21 necklace, J.Crew metallic flats (not pictured)
I really like what I came up with today. After a few days of blah outfits, it put a spring in my step to be wearing something that I felt really good in. I got more compliments from my co-workers today than I have all summer, and I think its partly because the outfit is cute but partly because of the attitude I was wearing it with. Whenever I feel good about myself in what I'm wearing, I carry myself with a completely different confidence than when I feel just so-so about my outfit. Kinda silly, but I'm sure you other stylish ladies out there can relate. Like for instance, when I put on a pair of heels, I instantly feel more confident, powerful, and pulled together. Unfortunately, I have a very minimal heel tolerance; I really don't think my feet are meant to last longer than 20 minutes in heels. If I was actually doing this outfit justice, I would have worn it with these babies:MICHAEL Michael Kors Berkley T-Straps
I bought these killer heels for myself as a birthday gift (haha yes you can judge me for buying myself presents and using my birthday as a justification to spend too much money), and sadly, I have not worn them nearly enough for how much I paid for them. I'm half-considering putting them in my 30 items for the 30 for 30 challenge to literally force myself to wear them. What do you think? Do you wear torturous heels? Is the pain worth the beauty, in the name of fashion?
