Cap Toe Ballet Flats

I have a soft spot for ballet flats – they’re both easy on the feet and I’d swear I was a ballerina (minus a few feet) when wearing them.  The cap toe just adds a punch of fashion — all the better.

And – a bit of history for you – cap toes began on men’s oxfords or brogues.  The cap-toed ballet flat is actually just a feminine nod to the classic men’s style.

Python Pumps

I tend to go (fairly) understated in putting together an outfit; black is my weakness.  So when it comes to shoes, I throw caution to the wind.  I love me a funky shoe!  And I swear I have an “excuse” … when you’re a professional, or at the very least, a half-time professional – blacks, greys, creams, and nudes – tend to comprise a major part of your day-to-day wardrobe, but with shoes, it’s carte blanche.  My thinking is, the judge can’t see my mirrored tasseled python pumps from way atop that podium … err, right?

Which leads me to my latest love, python printed pumps.  As far as color goes, the python print mixes fairly muted colors together, with a bolder animal print (but not so bold as a dalmatian or zebra print).  Meow! (or hiss, or whatever.)

Shoes I’d Love to Love

But seriously, I love them already.

UPDATE: Thanks to Pinterest, I just learned that the shoes were featured in the DW by Kanye West runway show at Paris Fashion Week, and are likely a part of the new brand (fingers crossed that the hit store shelves!)  The shoes are designed by Giuseppe Zanotti for DW by Kanye West Spring 2012.

Shoe Love: Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney Kardashian sure knows how to pick boots.  And one pair of  flat over-the-knee boots in particular have really won me over, and wouldn’t you know it – they’re totally affordable!  One of Kourtney’s favorite pairs: Chinese Laundry Nevada boots (sadly, sold out).

Knee Socks + Boots

I am a tights kind of girl.  I wear tights in Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall, and rarely feel an outfit is complete without them.  (Seriously, catch me in a bikini and tights – I have no shame.)  But knee-high socks (would also look slightly more appropriate with said bikini), this is something I could dive into – they afford knee coverage (Amen to that!) while looking bohemian and put-together all at the same time. Paired with the right knee-high boots, these knitted socks add just the right element of funky to any outfit.

What say you?  Will you rock the socks?

Get the Boots: Free People Ash Destroyer Boots

Get the Socks: Free People Classic Cable Tall Sock OR the Striped Socks: SmartWool Frilly Knee Highs

NOTE: If you’re still scratching your head about my obsession with tights, read up on my style – I Wear Too Much Clothing.

Inspiration: Gold

Currently craving all things dipped in gold. Continue to blame the Holiday bug.  And don’t laugh at my dream pig.  Stare at that little gilded piggy bank, and within minutes, you’ll want one too.  It’s the power of the pig.  But seriously, how fabulous would he look on a mantel or fireplace ledge?  So chic.
