Elastic

These are my new shoes:


They are from a brand called 80%20.  And they make me feel 80% elated and 20% ecstatic; they make me feel… elastic.  They came in the mail yesterday and I carried them around the house for an hour cooing, petting the shoes and feeling elastic.

And of course I had to wear them today:



I paired the booties (80%20 “Tessa” in Cream Kiwi via Piperlime) with an oversized white shirt (thrifted) layered under a wool, double-breasted cardigan (vintage Pendleton, thrifted) and black leggings.  I added a bit of color with a red-orange beaded necklace, but otherwise let the shoes shine.

In exercise news, I went back to pilates last night.  I fell off my mat twice.  I don’t know.  Don’t ask. 

Happy Wednesday, All!

  22. The shoes look great on you, Gracey! They fit in with the leopard trend but they're a little different. And gosh darn it they make your legs longer!

  23. OH.MY.GOD. I love love love those ... I want them. I am on a hunt right now for them. How do their sizes run? I would pet them too. I had to return the pair that I got because I couldn't walk in them. I think I could walk in these!
