Like Carlton Does


My Threads: Shirt: GoJane (similar), Sweater Vest: J.Crew, Jeans: Hollister (similar), Booties: Target, Bag: Calvin Klein,  Necklace: Forever 21, Bracelet: Francesca's (gift from a friend), Watch: Michael Kors (similar)

I'm wearing a sweater vest. You probably already noticed. I'll have you know that the second I put this on, I started doing the Carlton dance. Then I couldn't stop. Just a warning, in case you own a sweater vest.  

Really, I kind of love it though.

Speaking of loving things, these shoes are my new obsession. I was eyeing a similar pair at J.Crew recently, but never got them. When I was at Target the other day (buying shampoo and toothpaste...ha), I spotted these on clearance. I snatched up a pair, tried them on, and was almost sold. Then I noticed the tag said they were genuine suede. Sold. Plus, they are super comfy. You can hardly tell the have a wedge. 

Hope you had an amazing weekend!

  8. Love this look. Very cute booties too. The colour mix is great. I'm a big fan of the sweater vest and the way you added your feminine touches really make the look your own.

  9. Such a cute outfit!! I have the same wedges, and I have probably walked almost 3 miles (not all at once) in them and couldn't even tell I was wearing a heel. I love this look! :)

  16. I am so jealous of your shoes. I saw them when they first hit the shelves and I talked myself out of buying them. Then a couple of weeks later I decided I needed them (yes, need) and went back to get them, only to find they no longer had my size. It was a seriously sad day.

  19. Love your casual, preppy look! And I tried those shoes on in Target and they were horribly uncomfortable to me. ;) Funny how that works isn't it?

  21. Now I want to wear my sweater vest. Hmmm...I just might and credit you.

    Also, I really love your writing style. I bookmark a LOT of style blogs, but yours is always one of the first I check because you never fail to amuse me. If I weren't so comfortable, I'd do the Carlton dance, too.

  23. I have been considering those boots for forever but I couldn't decide because I didn't know what to wear with them. Now that they are marked down, I will have to go for it.

  24. The fact that you Carlton-danced and didn't make it into a gif for all of us to enjoy makes me question if we can be friends. The fact that you look cute in a sweater vest makes me question it even more.
