Hello high heels!
One thing you don’t really have use for immediately after having a baby are high heels. Somehow going from the bedroom to the living room for those 6 weeks never called for fancy footwear.
But I was very happy to put them back on several weeks ago and start gaining back that feeling of fancy. Although my feet had a lot to say about it afterwards and revolted hard core (“Where are the slippers we’ve been living in!?”)
This past Thursday I got to get all fancied up to co-emcee a fashion show with Katie Roach at West Town Mall. The show helped to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I knew the outfit was going to have to include pink. I picked up this blouse at JCPenney (they’ve also got a leopard version I’ve got my eye on) and tucked it into my black and white stripe steal from Ross.
I didn’t actually steal it, of course, but all they required for me to take it home was $10 (there’s a similar one here).
And let’s all be thankful it’s tights season!! Even if you don’t wear them, you can be thankful I’m using them to cover up my white legs ;)
Finally, I threw a little pattern mixing in there by adding a leopard belt. It’s a small detail that really makes the outfit unique, pick up a skinny patterned belt for yourself and try it with your next striped outfit.
I had such a blast commentating on the fashion show which showcased looks from all over the mall modeled by breast cancer survivors!
