Blowfish Shoes
I'm finally back with an outfit post! With the weather starting to turn into full blown winter I haven't been feeling very motivated to get out of jeans and sweaters, but I got this dress in the mail a few days ago and I knew I needed to put this outfit together. If I look composed in these pictures, I wasn't, haha. I ripped both armpits of the dress when I put on my cardigan, and I put in a run in my tights when I pulled them on. Oh well, that's just how things go sometimes :)

I wore one of my favorite vintage brooches but I didn't get a very good picture of it! It's a cute little bunny with a jade belly and a ruby eye. So so adorable.
Blowfish Shoes Heda
I got my Heda wedges from Blowfish earlier this week, and I could not be happier with them! They're super classic, and I can wear them just as easily with jeans and a t-shirt as I can with a fancy vintage dress. They have this pin-up look that isn't cheesy, but goes so so well with my style! They're totally comfortable too, and I don't have the easiest time in heels :)

Chris and I both work late today, so we're enjoying a little quality time before we head off. I cleaned up our house yesterday, and it's always so nice to just hang out in a tidy and organized place (which is an embarrassingly rare thing in these parts!). We're going to make a conscious effort to keep it up, I think my problem is that I just get so wrapped up in my routine of work-work, come home, etsy-work, sleep, that I just skip by all the responsible stuff. We're ready to make some changes to our way(s) of life though, and I'm really excited about it! Kind of a pre-New Year's resolution :)

I hope you're having a wonderful (and warm!) day!!

  2. I've heard so many great reviews about those shoes to the point that I may even get a pair....and I'm not even a heel girl!
    Also, you look stunning.

  5. I have to agree with the above leg comment, hope I'm not being creepy but I'm envious of the stems.

    You look fabulous in blue/aqua and I love this dress, it is very flattering on you. I've ripped the arm pit out of many a dress, cardigan, sweater, and everytime I stare at the hole and admit defeat. Oh, how could I forget, these wedges are to die for.

    I agree with you about a clean and organized house/room/what have you. I always feel so much better when my place is clean.

  12. @Eva: mine are black, but you're right, the website only shows brown! Weird! Maybe you can get in touch with them, Elise on twitter (@blowfishshoes) is really helpful, or email customer service!

  13. @Eva: Just checked on my laptop instead of my phone and they have the black ones in 7.5, 8.5, 10, and 11 :)
