Happy happy Monday skrillas. I just got these shoes in the mail last week (free with my Mintsider reward points!) and they are just gorgeous....the only thing is they are super va-va-voom....now, don't get me wrong I love a little bit of voom but I wanted to tone them down a little with something more masculine....like boyfriend jeans.

This lead me on a wild goose chase which ultimately ended in defeat....every pair with either too loose or too tight. I came home and scoured through my closet (my mecca, the only place in the house that is entirely mine) and pulled out these cropped trousers from Loft. A cobalt blue light bulb went off! Just enough balance off masculine and feminine......perfect for a trunk show (one of the only times during the month that I actually get to dress up!)

PS I'm linking up with Molly today so be sure to check that out.....you really need to see her new dynamite haircut!!




And for the necklace du jour....The Stella & Dot Stevie which i just found out this morning is 50% off when you use the code "PEOPLESD" at stelladot.com/brookeallen
