OOTD- Topped with a Pretty Little Bow





I was feeling all kinds of blue and green, but purple decided to take the spotlight on this outfit. I fell in love with a certain pair of Miu Miu shoes almost two months ago (see them here). I couldn't get them out of my mind (don't you hate, but secretly love when that happens), but my friend said I would be crazy to spend that kind of money on shoes and my wallet told me that it was definitely not going to happen. What's a girl to do when she's impatient and can't find a suitable alternative? This one makes her own!! It took me forever to learn how to design them and find the right sewing machine. Okay, I'm kidding about that last part, my sewing skills are basic at best and I can barely do a straight line properly.

What do you guys think about my creation?


Outfit Details:
Teal tee- Rogan for Target
Blue grandpa cardigan- Madewell
Green tweed skirt- J. Crew outlet (similar style here and here)
Lilac studded handbag- Spotted Moth (available here)
Peep-toe bow heels- Milk & Honey (check it out here)
