you've made a fair lady of me.


Zara fit and flare dress | Asos boyfriend belt | Zara d'orsay heels | Zara colour wallet

There is something about the spring/summer season that makes the sight of water so refreshing. Maybe because its the source of a desert mirage, or the heart of a cascading waterfall in the tropics, or that it encompasses playful summer activities that all make us children again. The beauty of water causes me to be drawn to fountains. I love to watch the water perform its waltz and hear the natural symphony as it falls and rises in unpredictable motifs. 

As most of you are aware, I'm a girl who is a sucker for shoes. Some girls fill their closet with purses, or empty their wallets on makeup, but my thing is shoes. I've had my eye on d'orsay pumps for quite some time, and then my sister, Jennifer, found the perfect pair for me. Totally obsessed. I feel like a true lady in them, and can hardly resist scampering around town in them. I am also a bit compulsive when it comes to taking care of my shoes, so in fear of scuffing them (since I can be a tomboy at times), I mostly just want to hide the pair from the outside world and get dolled up in them unless absolutely necessary. But how can I conceal such an extraordinary pair of shoes? Sigh.

Soft, beautiful, and sweet. This is a fantastic outfit! This black look with subtle pink accents (the clutch and belt) makes this look truly lovely. While the majority of the look is sweet and beautiful, the open-side pumps offer a sexy edge. Out of five stars, this look gets six.

Nikki said...

There's something to be said for a ladylike outfit. I love the fullness of the skirting on this dress, and I must say, longer sleeves on dresses are hard to come by and definitely underrated. You are killing with the pops of neon pink! So fabulous.

This outfit could seriously not be any prettier! I am absolutely in love with it! Those shoes are amazing, I've noticed them on a few bloggers, and I actually have my sister on the hunt for them on the other side of the country as we don't have a zara here! The spots of neon pink are so perfect with the black, too! Gorgeous, lady!
