Gray, Olive, and a Short Shoe Story.

Sweatshirt: Martin & Osa • Pants: Urban Outfitters • Shoes: Hispanitas • Sunglasses: Oliver Peoples • Necklace: Urban Outfitters • Bag: Coach

Twist Out

Nail Lacquer
Fingers & Toes: OPI Tickle My France-y

These shoes are like butter on my feet. I'm kinda sad about boxing them away for the winter.
Did I ever tell you the story about these shoes?

I don't think I did.

Well...I spotted them in Nordstrom years ago for $200, tried them on & fell in love.
All leather. Made in Spain. Tapper.
But, two-hundred bucks...I couldn't! Not for shoes that weren't particularly practical for Midwest weather.
About a year, or so later, these babies called me from the aisles of Nordstrom Rack, for $35!
The end.

Love the shoe story! I'm also in love with your nail color. I purchased it recently (but a different brand). It's my new fave.
