back to basics

top: forever 21 (recent) // shorts: forever 21 (old) // loafers: steve madden // necklace: oia jules // watch: michael kors // sunglasses: ray-ban 

I have a blogger confession to make: I much prefer wearing heels over flats on the blog. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE LOVE LOVE flats x 10000 but I suffer from short leg syndrome (as I like to call it) and flats just accentuate them in my opinion. My little stubs just look so much better in heels. I'm also getting back to running on a regular basis, so I'm trying to make them look super great hhaha. Also, the fact that I live in a super casual small town, I rarely get to wear my heels as often as I'd like, so my little blog is one of the only places I can truly show them off. 
Anyways, when it comes to the rest of my outfit, I was very inspired by the amazing Alicia from Cheetah is the New Black and absolutely fell in love with her outfit here. I didn't want to exactly copy her look but rather give my own spin to it. That's where my beloved Steve Madden loafers and Oia Jules necklace come in. I cannot even count the amount of times I've worn these loafers and necklace. I'm still super in love with them both and I'm glad I can keep wearing them into the Fall season!

Have a great Friday everyone, and enjoy the last bits of amazing weather! 
and as always, thanks for reading! x


  1. This is such a great look, love the leopard loafers and that sweater!! Heels are just so impractical in my day to day life, I absolutely looove how they make my legs look but being on my feet all day is just too hard. Guuurl, you don't have short legs!

  2. Babe, much?! You look amazing here bud! xx

  3. I'm with ya...flats for me too! hehe. As much as heels are sexy and make a short gal like me feel taller...I love me some flats. =)

    Cute outfit!


  4. i have that same syndrome...but trust me, your legs look great in flats or heels!

  5. I love this outfit! Simplicity at its finest! I love the slouchy fit of the top. And I think that's something most of us do... I definitely wear flats a LOT more than I appear to on the blog.

  6. Absolutely loving those loafers!!!! Great post!

  7. I suffer from short leg syndrome as well, so I am with you there. Heels and boots just make my legs look better and longer than flats do....but like, to wear heels all of the time is just insanity!!

    xoxo Jackie
