Here are those new jeans again, this time cuffed as I described before. And check out the depth of the cuff! If these suckers weren't folded they'd be all the way over my feet and right out onto the floor. I'm pretty sure I've never seen a woman with legs that long, at least not in person. Those gams would be like stilts.
I digress. This outfit was really just a rework of this one, which I loved and couldn't help repeating slightly. The soft, sheer floral over the button-down stripe is such a great way to feminize a structured, business-like shirt. This time though, I changed up the pants, shoes, and belt.
Let's talk about the shoes. These adorable lace-up pumps were a gift from the folks at Tsubo, and believe me, I was pretty excited at the prospect of receiving them. The shoes actually arrived while I was in Argentina, but when I first got back my broken toe sadly prevented me from wearing them. Obviously I've now healed enough that these were just fine for all day at work.
I've heard Sal sing the praises of Tsubos many times before, and indeed I have a pair that she sent me, so I was already expecting a well-made, comfortable shoe. But holy smokes, I actually forgot several times during the day that I even had heels on, that's how comfortable they are. If these came in some non-neutral colors I would be online ordering all of them right now. Or more likely, they'd already be in my closet. This is a perfect style for me, with the laces and the quirky heel. I could imagine a whole lot of awesomeness if they carried these in other colors -- and what if the panel on top of the foot were a second color!? How about a 2-tone olive and tan, or butter yellow and ecru, or PINK AND BURGUNDY! C'mon, guys, Tsubo lovers are funky, we're adventurous, we are ready for the 2-tone Nabus! Or at least, I am. Feel free to custom make me a pair, or three. Ahem.
On to the coat. Oh, so many wonderful new things in this outfit! The coat came from the mega super Tulle sale I took advantage of back in August. I picked up this navy pick-stitch cutie for something like $12, and as you may remember, a navy coat was on my shopping list for quite some time. I have only one complaint about this coat: the lining is cotton, which means it sticks to my clothes and causes the sleeves to bunch up inside the coat sleeves. But for $12, I'll forgive it.
