a thousand pages, give or take a few...

What is better than a new pair of shoes, one might ask? I am a tad fussy when it comes to my footwear and, as a result, once I find a pair that I like I have been known to wear them to death.  I've been wearing a lot of heels and wedges as of late - partly because I was in the mood but also because I had been on the search for a replacement for my favorite (recently kaput) flats.
I ended up buying these woven flats at Urban Outfitters recently because a) they came in half-sizes (rare for Urban's shoes) and b) they seemed pretty sturdy compared to other flats I've tried recently. They are also black and brown so I think they will go with a wide rage of outfits.
So far so good, though I may be wearing them too much - in other words... three out of the last four days. Forgive me if they show up here again soon!
outfit details:
romper - h&m
cardigan & brooch - vintage 
shoes - u.o.

Now back to reading to F.Scott Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise!  I have been working on being a better reader as I have a collection of a dozen or so half-read books on my bedside table that have been collecting dust for months!

ha! i do exactly the same thing. i also collect a lot of shoes and then only end up wearing one pair. those are super cute; i hope they hold up. i am a little wary of urban outfitter shoes - i walk so much that they always collapse within months - bad!

Those are some awesome flats.  I really love the tassels.  I always have good luck at UO when it comes to shoes.  I buy the same ones over and over again though.  Those cheap skimmers they make come in so many colors!

Love the tassels on your shoes! Adorable.

I also wear shoes to death, I try not to, but it's hard!

I'm the same way with my shoes... which is why they all look TERRIBLE! Those loafers are adorable indeed. Oh, and that cardigan is quite heavenly! xoxo

ooh, This Side of Paradise is great! I was on a Fitzgerald kick a few years ago and read almost everything he wrote. Hop you enjoy it!

Love the shoes. I tend to get into shoe ruts and totally forget about all my other shoes. And then I pull them out and go "Why haven't I been wearing these??"
