Have you ever spotted a pair of shoes online, or in a store, and they spoke to you? When I first spotted these embroidered floral booties for spring online, I heard them call my name! They said: “Cathy, you need me in your life, buy me in black right now and you will have good fortune!”
Well. . .not really . . . but I placed them in my shopping cart, walked away for two days, couldn’t take it anymore, and clicked “checkout.” The rest is history! They arrived two days later, and it was love at first sight.
I always thought I was too conservative to wear embroidered floral booties for spring. I thought my style was more classic; staying on-trend through colors, and the way I put pieces together, rather than bold pieces which call out a specific year and season. But when I saw these booties, all of that flew out the window.
Whether or not these booties keep their cool factor in 2017, remains to be seen. As for spring 2016, it was worth every penny to experience their current cool factor. After all, they are perfect for transitioning from winter into spring, and they are comfortable too! Doesn’t that qualify as a practical purchase? I think so 😉
I am looking forward to pairing these embroidered floral booties for spring with leggings, skirts, and dresses, as the season progresses. They are definitely my obsession of the season!
This blouse from Banana Republic needs a shout-out too. I love the pale pink color, and the feminine flow of the blouse. Although I am wearing it on a casual day in the photos above, it looks better with a skirt, or trousers. I will definitely wear it with a skirt on a warmer day, and photograph it for the blog. I plan to wear it during New York Fashion Week later this month too!
