The whole sequin-tank-over-button down look is one of my favorites during the wintertime. If you are a new reader, I should warn you that I love cold weather because it gives me more opportunity to layer. I love layering! That being said, I didn’t know if this look would be appropriate for the summer months, but I’ve found that it is not too warm. Adding a sequin tank to an outfit gives the look an upgrade! Whether you are going to the office, church, or maybe even a wedding, this is fun way to dress up a chambray & pencil skirt.
Okay, now. Let’s talk about the shoes. Rachel Parcell & her pink Rockstud Valentinos made me go a little crazy. (Did you know she liked TWO of my photos on Instagram??) It’s no secret that I love the color pink, so when I saw those beautiful, studded, $900 shoes, I fell in lust. Per usual, these types of purchases do not make the medical school budget so I did what any bargainista, med-student wife would do and began hunting for Valentino-inspired shoes. Thanks to a Twitter/Instagram friend, I was led to TORRID.com where I found these Valentino Rockstud Knockoffs at $44! (Now they are $30!) No joke. We all need to give Heather a round of applause for finding these & sharing! If you are not aware, Torrid.com is a plus-size clothing store – thus the shoes run a little wider. I recommend sizing down if you are a half-size. (I am an 8.5 and I needed the 8.) Also, let it be known that these are mid-heel - so they are actually super easy to walk in and rather comfortable. Not to mention, mid-heel is kind of the in-thing!
I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Being home is no doubt one of the best things. Spending Father’s day with my dad, the weekend with my niece/nephew, & laughing so I hard I cried while being with my Mom has reminded me why I love Arkansas so much. I’ll be sharing photos from my weekend tomorrow!
