Is Someone Behind Me?

Dear Kelsey,

Ahh the perks of being a style blogger. Fashion week, fun events, millions of free nail polishes… constant paranoia that someone’s in your frame. All in a good day’s work.

This offensively bright ensemble is what I ended up wearing to brunch at Punch. More than a year later and I’m still trying to break in these Pour La Victoire flats. I love how they look but they’re very tough on my feet.

I’ve been pulling all my brightly colored things out of storage. Must be spring!

    You look good in brights! Also, love how you can’t even tell how dreary it was that day in these pictures- your bright, happy colors chased the bad weather away.

      Oh you should definitely look– if it’s a winter one there will be great sales, and if not I’ve always thought red was a great spring jacket color!

    Sometimes I think that breaking in shoes is a myth. I’ve got some pairs in my closet that no amount of time or wear seems to make any more comfortable. And if it really does take so long, by the time they are comfy, they will probably look like crap. So I think we need to just focus on buying shoes that don’t hurt straight out of the box.

    Glad to see the return of the bright pink pants, and why did you wait so long to take out that gorgeous red coat?

      With these shoes I’m willing to consider that breaking in is never going to happen.

      So I haven’t worn this coat because it’s so old (like college old) and it hasn’t fit for a while… until now. But it has Thinsulate in the lining and now it’s too warm for it.

      Guess there’s always next year?
