Style Diary – Ugly Shoes

Style Diary - Ugly Shoes

Ugly Shoes

Do you wear “ugly” shoes?  I put the word ugly in quotation marks because it is so subjective.  My ugly, may be your beautiful.  And my beautiful, may be your ugly.  You get it.

To me, because I happen to dress more elegantly, anything big, clunky, and manly looking can be ugly.  To my sixteen-year-old daughter, Kate, anything with a pointy toe (which is pretty much all I wear) is ugly.  (You can be sure that I don’t ask her if she likes my shoes).

Where to Wear?

The outfit above is fun.  Wear it to brunch, on a date, out with friends, to a very fashionable, creative office, shopping, sight-seeing.  If you change out the shoes and throw on some pretty sandals or pumps, you may be able to wear this look to a shower, a wedding, cocktail party, in other words, a more formal occasion.

Investment Pieces

All of the jewelry would be investment pieces.  The purse is pretty conservative and may be something you wear for a few years.  The midi skirt and crop top are pretty trendy, so maybe not for them.  The jacket would be an investment piece, assuming this mustard color works well with the rest of your wardrobe.  Those ugly shoes – well, you know how I feel about those, right?

Thoughts

Have you had those weeks at work where every thing seemed off?  Where “you” seemed off?  That’s the type of week I have had.  I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, but knew that something wasn’t “right”.

I am a “highly sensitive person” or, HSP, and because of that I am learning to trust my intuition and feelings more and more.  In fact, I am trying to rely on this intuition more in learning the truth, than I rely on the meaning of the words spoken. 

Are you an HSP?  Do you know what that is?  Check out Dr. Elaine Aron’s website and her book The Highly Sensitive Person.  She will tell you all about it.  She’s the expert on HSP’s.

See…when you come to my blog, not only do you dress cute, but you also learn so much about the inner workings of your mind.  I am proud of you for putting equal energy on fashion and learning about your mind.  I always knew you were bright!!!

Have a great Saturday my friends, thanks for stopping by.

Fondly, Sonya

 

Full Skirt

The Full Skirt

The full skirt makes me want to be taller.  Can us petite women wear full skirts?  Probably, but every time I put on a skirt like the one shown above, I feel “huge.”  Not exactly the desired feeling we seek in our outfits.

The look above is beautiful, though.  I love how the stripes of the skirt turn to flowers.  With a full skirt, you probably want to wear a shorter top or tuck in a longer one.  The idea is to define your waist.  Adding a belt may be fun, too.

Where to Wear

I was somewhat stumped in deciding where to wear this outfit.  One the one hand, I was thinking you could wear this just about anywhere, and on the other hand, I thought, could you wear this anywhere?  Dilemma – really not an ideal way in which to start your day, I wouldn’t recommend it.  Maybe y’all could make this decision for me – I will be working on budgets at work today, so I need all this “decision-making energy” to go towards that.  Sorry to leave this on you, but I do appreciate the help. 🙂

Aren’t those earings and bag a terrific color?  I love the watch, too.

Happy Thursday, after making the tough decision about where to wear this outfit, I hope the rest of your day is as decision-free as possible.  Have a great one!!
