|Shoes by Chie Mihara|
I had a busy week! I am so glad it is Friday! I don't have any special plans except that we are meeting some friends for drinks and dinner tomorrow. Maybe I will also stop by at J.Crew to review those apple shorts.
But I have to do it tomorrow because in my county everything is closed on Sundays. Blue Laws. This is good for me, and even better for my wallet.
So this is just a catch up post with some OOTDs that I wore this week. Remember, I swapped some of my clothes so I was a bit more excited to create some new combinations.
Liberty Shirt with Bright Dahlia Wool Double Serge pencil skirt.
I have worn the shirt with another skirt HERE.

Silk Indigo is one of my favorite J.Crew prints, I couldn't believe it was not mentioned when Alexis had a post on top ten prints. This is one of the top five on my list. I am wearing a pencil skirt with GAP cotton cardigan in navy, also seen HERE, snap button elbow sleeve perfect fit tee in navy and Coach wedge booties, later swapped for Repetto ballet flats.
I have changed the shoes once in the office. I would not wear them outside for extended periods of time (and I walk to the train and back so I always need comfortable shoes). Read below for more about it.

I really like the skirt and my shoes happen to be a perfect match for the cobalt in the skirt. I love the print because even if it is a big floral the colors make it unexpected and sophisticated. If I remember correctly this was J.Crew 'interpretation' of Marc Jacobs very similar print. Does anybody remember the Marc Jacobs version?
A note on the fit of Repettos, in case you ever consider them. They run at least a size small. I wear 8 or 8.5 in J.Crew Ballets, I almost always take 39 in Euro sized shoes but these are size 40 an it is a perfect fit. They will mold to your foot, as their leather is extra soft, even in patent. The tie is functional and you can tie them like real ballet flats to adjust the fit. Because of the softness and adjustable fit they don't have a side gap between your foot and the shoes and that's why they look so nice. Bear in mind that the soles are VERY thin, you will feel every single pebble if you use them outside. I always have extra rubber soles added at the cobbler to protects the shoes and to add some cushioning.

Since it is Friday I can wear my flair jeans to the office! First I thought of the Dove Tee
