OOTD - Boyfriend Jeans and Heels

I actually wasn't going to post these photos.  I thought to myself "it's just a pair of boyfriend jeans and some heels, what's so special about that?" Life isn't always maxi skirts and curled hair, sometimes it's a Thursday night after a long day of work and you're running out the door in a pair of boyfriend jeans and unwashed hair trying to make your dinner reservation on time. Thank the heavens for shoes, am I right?  Just getting into the shoe game, I'm amazed how a great pair of heels can elevate even the simplest outfit. These pointy-toe stilettos from Club Monaco are a great addition to my humble-but-growing shoe collection, and really pull together a simple outfit of destroyed boyfriend jeans and a white tank.  A great pair of shoes is everything - they may not be able to wash my hair for me, but they make me feel good and that's all that matters.

So among many other things, I am also a shoe Noob.  I had always fancied myself more of a bag person, but lately you can't tear me away from the shoe stores.  Taking a page out of Ms. Carrie Bradshaw's book, I'm trying to pair fancier heels with any old outfit and love the effortless look it produces.

What do you guys think - are you into the simpler looks?  Where do you stand on your love for shoes?  Are there any stand-out shoe brands that you think I should check out?  Let me know!

  3. Ah boyfriend jeans! You know they are my fave. I am usually all about comfort over glamour, but I think adding heels instantly glams up the outfit.

  5. Other than lipstick, shoes are my favourite accessory! They can instantly change an outfit, and I love pairing some killer heels with a casual outfit to change the look instantly. I'm totally guilty of buying the same shoe in multiple colours too :P
