Celebrate the Shoe: Days 18-20

I know, can you believe we're still celebrating the shoe? I'm hoping to wrap this up in the next week.  Here are pairs 18-20.  If you missed any pairs prior to these, you can find them here, here, here, here, here and the original post here.

Day 18:  I had a conference last week so I knew I would be sitting most of the day. As much as I love the formal feel of these patent leather peep toes, they are pretty tall so I save them for sedentary days.  I paired them with this patterned dress and this steal of the century leather jacket.  It has the most beautiful quilted sleeves but its hard to see them.
Jacket - Nordstrom Rack, Dress - Nine West, Shoes - Cole Haan, Earrings - Forever 21, Necklace - Eastern Market, DC


Day 19: This outfit is all about the details; the pearly buttons, waist tie, metal skirt rivets and fun tassels of the shoes.  It has taken me a long time to learn how to walk in these platform shoes, but they are a ton of fun with skirts and long, flared jeans.
Shirt - Ann Taylor Loft, Skirt - Marshall's, Shoes - Via Spiga via Ruelala, Necklace/Earrings - Eastern Market, DC


Day 20: Two of my co-workers said I looked like Yankee Doodle in this outfit.  I disagree, I think I look dandy, Yankee Doodle Dandy if you will. When I put this together I wanted an excuse to wear my new statement necklace and a comfortable pair of shoes to wear after walking miles in heels the day before.  It was raining so I threw my anorak on as headed to work.
Jacket - Betsey Johnson, Shirt - Michael Kors, Skirt/Shoes - Nordstrom, Scarf - Vintage, Necklace - Eastern Market, DC



I have some fun posts this week; a sweet recipe, craft project, and of course more clothes.  I can't wait to debut my new summer 'do in Wednesday's Wardrobe! Have a great Monday!

Coral and cobalt blue look totally great together and loving the hair scarf. Statement necklace and neutral coat finish off the look!

Haha, you DO look dandy! :) That's a great dress in the first picture. I like how you toughened it up with the leather jacket.

Happy Monday!

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by & leaving the sweet comment. BTW...I linked to where you can find that tank on OldNavy.com so maybe go there & snag the turquoise one! They only had the turquoise & the yellow options in my ON store so I got pretty giddy when I saw the other patterns online.

I love this idea of celebrating your shoes! I'm actually surprised women average only 17 pairs of shoes. They clearly did not ask fashion bloggers or Sex in the City lovers for this survey! Great idea of putting all your shoes to use though. :o)
