I Wear My Heart On My Sleeve





No frilly gills outfit title today! I think Mike might be outside in the hammock so I'm going to try my own go at it! I feel like it's appropriate seeing as I'm wearing a heart pattern cardigan. Ooh la la! It's currently Friday evening and I'm wasting the next hour away until I leave for work. Work... ::grumble::. This is the outfit I wore to Nashville on Thursday when we took my Xterra to have the window motor fixed. I'm lucky they gave me a rental car, and it seems that I'll be in my granny-mobile until Monday. I hope they don't try to stick me with the bill! I'll be one hot tamale!

Anywhoo, I was overjoyed when these shoes came in the mail! I tried them on originally at Edge of Urge in Wilmington when we visited 2 weeks ago. They were *perfect*... and by perfect I mean half a size too big. I departed NC without buying them, thinking I could find a smaller size online. Um no. Apparently they don't exist. I'm not sure what it is with Jeffrey Campbell shoes but they go like hot cakes and they're impossible to find when they're sold out. Hours of Googling failed me so I just bit the bullet and ordered these online. Thank goodness for that option! They're skyhigh and perfect! I still need to get a little heel insert so they fit perfectly, but I'm in awe! The dress is a black eyelet pattern frock from Forever 21, and the cardi is from F21 as well. The belt is a 25 cent Goodwill find and the tights are old Target ones. (Note all of the makeup smudges and puppy hair! Yeesh!) The bag is my Salvation Army thrift find from earlier this week and the shoes, of course, are Jeffrey Campbell Daisy-D Platform Wedges! *swoon!* I feel like a giant in them! Definitely a change of pace for little ol' 5'2 me.

Mike is headed down to Alabama on Saturday to assist a photographer friend with a bridal portrait shoot. I'll be spending the day pouring over rental homes, crafty plans, blog designs, emails, and scheduled posts. Always on the go! Well.. I'm out of here! Stay tuned for a little birthday wishy-wishlist and sponsorship introductions later! xo

  4. I love the cardigan! It's so cute and pretty :)

    The shoes are gorgeous! It's always annoying when you find a pair that you love but they're either too big or too small! Luckily you can get a little insert for yours!

  9. i love it! i've just recently discovered jeffrey campbell shoes and now my obsession has started! i would love to get a pair eventually. and heel inserts? what are those? do they go underneath the arch of your foot because if so that's usually my problem with heels too and i didn't know there was a solution to them lol.

    ps - i just found your blog like a week ago and i was immediately drawn to it because of your tattoos. i'm tattooed as well (though no sleeves yet) and it's nice to see a tattooed person dress well instead of the standard punk or goth uniform!

  29. Oh YAY! I'm so glad you got the shoes! I saw you tweeting about it and yep, Jeffrey Campbell shoes are SO hard to find. I thought I would never find a pair of JC splendid sandal platforms after they sold out online, then I randomly saw a pair in a store here in New Zealand! (And snaffled them up, of course!)

    All that to say I love your shoes, you look gorgeous in them, and your outfit is adorable :)
