In Someone Else's Shoes


{Loafers: Thrifted -- Tights: H&M -- Dress: Modcloth -- Scarf & Hat: Charming Charlie -- Cardigan: Thrifted}



Hello sunshine! And not only cloudless skies, but a hint of Spring temperatures as well. Considering it just snowed on saturday, I'm a bit confused. Anyone else feel this way? Not that I'm complaining, I fully enjoyed the mini snow storm on saturday as well as some nice vitamin D today. After class I went to my car {his name is Pierre} and cracked all the windows down. I leaned my chair back and just sat there enjoying the simple pleasure of being warm. It almost felt like I was back home in California, I've been a bit homesick lately and today helped a lot. See, it even motivated me to go and take pictures! 






Okay let me take a quick second to explain these gorgeous flats you see above. I am out taking my boyfriend's little sister to our local Goodwill. We are browsing through, and I casually look up at all the shoes, even though I know they won't have my size. I've mentioned I have giant feet before, right? A size 11! Then I see these pretty brown leather loafers all the way in the corner. I cocked my head to the side, because I was in shock, they actually looked like they could be my size. I took off my Dr. Martens and slipped one loafer on. And then... they fit perfect and I decided these must be my Cinderella shoes! These are my glass slippers, even though they might be a little bit less extravagant. It's amazing to find my size at a thrift store and I am so happy, I've even worn them the past three days. Comfiest shoes ever!


Happy Monday Darlings!

This is such a cute dress, the colours are just perfect for spring! :) Ahh, I know how you feel on the shoe front, I have super wide feet so I can never find shoes that don't cut my feet in half and it's always the best feeling when you find that perfect pair! Yay, love the loafers though!

I never would have guessed you have such large feet! Your feet are double mine! Damn! But those shoes are gorgeous. I've always wanted a pair of loafers like that. And I totally agree this weather is so strange. It's getting me a bit sick.

the dress and shoes are both gorgeous although i agree with the above - i would never have thought that your feet were particularly large :P x

you're so lucky to have such warm weather and you look lovely in the floral dress!
I completely understand the thing with thrifting shoes - I'm shocked if I ever find something that fits me and that I like.
