Cheap Nudes

It's not what you think.

Today is a small ode to our inexpensive nude pumps, ever the working girl's go-to.

Top: GAP / Pants: Just U.S.A. / Shoes: The Limited / Bag: Madewell

Monday.  Not ready for you.  None of us are.  Not me, as shown in this photo, and not my co-worker, who was coaxed out of his office to snap this in the hurriest of hurries.  

Thoughts on the outfit.  Should stop using this casual tote for work, even if I love it so much.  Thought these were my black skinny pants, but actually they're my black jeans.  The whole outfit is rather casual, actually.  But still love the sky-high patent leather nude pumps that can make even pajamas look alright.

Tiny faux pearls: Heavenly Couture
"ciao bella": Urban Outfitters

Love layering two necklaces, which sometimes works, sometimes doesn't.  The "ciao bella" came with some other Urban Outfitters items I snagged.  With the $4.99 necklace, I got free shipping.

Last thought.  That which I can't fix on a sleep-deprived face, dark eyeliner and/or dark lipstick usually can.

Cardigan: The Limited / Tank: Old Navy / Skirt: Merona x Target / Shoes: Mossimo x Target
Earrings (not visible): delicate handmade gold hoops (bridesmaid gift)

Here's the thing (or three) about my "nude" shoes: they literally go with everything, they make my legs look longer, and they are ridiculously comfortable.  Oh yeah, and at $30 they were a virtual steal. 

It follows, therefore, that I want to wear these shoes every day.  I rest my case.

(Sorry, too much lawyering going on today, apparently).
