Saddle Up

Blazer: UO, Tank: T by Alexander Wang, Jeans: c/o Blush, Shoes: Vans, Bag: Aaneta, Necklace: F21, Watch: Gucci, Sunnies: Michael Kors

Fashion trends always come full circle, which is a HUGE problem for me cause knowing this I never like to get rid of anything (hoarders anyone?). Talk about making a come back...Case and Point: Saddle Shoes. Every time I put these babies on I want to break out the bobby socks, throw on a poodle skirt, and dance the night away in my cat eye sunnies! Clearly I was not born in the 50's (or I may just have the most fantastic plastic surgeon you have ever seen) but dressing up for 50's parties was one of my fave things to do when I was a kid and I love that Vans brought these guys back to life!

I can't believe that necklace is F21! If I wasn't boycotting them (we'll see how long it lasts) I would stalk all of the stores near me to get it! As for the shoes- awesome! It is hard for me to get rid of things, too, but I think it helps you create a really unique personal style...so we are justified...right?! ;)

I love that white blazer! Its so fresh and crisp for Spring! It also looks fantastic with those saddle shoes! I have a pair of patent leather oxfords I've held onto for quite some time and I'm glad I did :)
