It’s an early Spring so that means it’s time to bust out a spring shoe. Of course I can’t afford a beautiful Christian Louboutin Lillian Mary Jane Platform on my salary – but I can certainly swoon after one. I was just looking at my wardrobe today and realized I was rocking a lil classic Courtney Love-esque Hole type look. Ruffled striped t-shirt, denim pleated mini, black tights and a Mary Jane pump from Aldo. It’s a clean but pretty look for work. Very comfy. I love how a Mary Jane can make a statement – professional but still preppy cute. If you are not into a Mary Jane Pump – try a flat. My friend T is a fan and has a lovely flat that she bought in the UK which I would love to get my hands on. I think they may be Clark’s. J’aime.
I found a pair of MJ flats at Zara a few years ago in L.A. for $20. They are perfect for a mini skirt, jeans and even a legging/mini combo. Be it for work or for play a staple Mary Jane is a good investment. Classic or a wedge can be somethings to consider as a good transition shoe from spring to summer be it on a bare leg or with tights.
Yours in fashion,
