Pinstripes, purple, spiderwebs

I kind of feel sorry mentioning how this was another foggy morning when my friends & fellow bloggers in the Midwest & on the East Coast of the U.S. are suffering with horrible heatwaves. But, um, I'm wearing tights again & grabbed a cardigan after taking these photos.

Let's just pretend I live in New Zealand for a few days so you won't hate me.

What I'm wearing:
Purple T-shirt, The Limited
Black pinstriped skirt, Newport News, gift from Lisa
Black spiderweb tights, unknown brand
Purple cross-strap pumps, Aldo
Black chunky beaded necklace, Target
Black beaded bracelet, gift when I was a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding
Pewter square earrings, from a local artisan
Black cocktail ring, Icing

Aldo is probably the only specific brand of shoes
I own multiple pairs of. Love them!
I wear these earrings sooooo often.
Such a great find & about time I photographed them.


  1. This entire outfit is awesome, but I would severely maim someone for your shoes. Sadly, I wear a 9.5 AA so I almost never get the cute shoes in pretty colors. I have massive shoe envy.

    Come to think of it, this combination is almost exactly what I wore yesterday (Monday). Same color of t-shirt, just substitute black shorts for black skirt and flip flops with no socks for your shoes/hose. It was hot here. Personally, I like the fog better but to each their own.

  2. In England we're getting constant rain and thunderstorms, even for us that's bad weather! Your skirt is simply wonderfully simple <3

  3. lazysubculturalgirl - I do loves me some Aldos. They come in European sizes, which seems to be a little more flexible than U.S. sizing (it accounts for half sizes better, imo).

    Julietslace - Ah yes, English summer rain! Well, that's rather like San Francisco summers ;-)

  4. Yeah, I am adoring the purple shoes. I don't think you can ever have enough maryjanes.
