Houndstooth Booties, Shoulder Pad Tank, YSL Bag

August 23, 2020


Finally some photos worthy of my chic new houndstooth booties, unlike the ones I had to rush through last week.

Shop the Look:



Loving my Louise Et Cie houndstooth booties from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  They’re a textured fabric, which I think is cool, though a few people I know were disappointed that they weren’t suede or calf hair.  Also wearing my Kendra Scott Ryder hoops from the sale. So glad I kept them!

One of my favorite new trends is the tank top with shoulder pads, so I added that to the look, along with some black denim kick flares that I’ve had for years.  Of course everything looks classier with my Lafayette 148 NY black blazer.

I know you’ve seen the new bag!  Wish I had someplace exciting to take it out for a spin.  Hopefully soon!  Also wearing my favorite Prada oversized sunnies, on sale in classic black. Oh, and my new chunky chain necklace, an Etsy find!
