I’ve mentioned a few times how partial I am to chambray, particularly in summer. What I probably haven’t mentioned is my tendency to collect really eclectic pieces and then find I have no idea how to wear them, or what to wear them with.
I had a really bad habit of doing this when I was about 16. I’d buy things and they would sit in my wardrobe for years because I couldn’t bear to throw them out, but they never saw the light of day.
I didn’t want these sandals to end up being another failed statistic at the bottom of my wardrobe. They are the very sort of thing I would have ended up doing this with 10 years ago. I decided I needed either a skirt or a dress. Something casual and plain (because there would basically be a full-blown party happening on my feet).
Enter this cute-as dress with its little rah-rah skirt. I’ve owned chambray dresses before, but never one quite as feminine or sweet. It seemed the perfect choice to pair with these shoes.
I’m hoping I’ve broken a cycle with these shoes. I try not to buy things I don’t immediately know what to do with, but sometimes it’s hard to resist. I guess that’s what the Internet is for!
