My Leopard Print High Heels...

Today was just one of those days.

I woke up this morning and decided that my beloved leopard print high heels from Ann Taylor LOFT would see some pavement.  I have not worn them in several days.

As I mentioned in a previous post, this was really the first pair of high heels that I ever owned.  Now I am obsessed, some might even say addicted.

I believe that I have recently "upgraded" my membership in the "Society of High Heel Lovers."

Look at these shoes... wouldn't you be?

I often take DART to work so walking from my apartment to the station and then from the station to the office is required.

I must have shoes that I can walk in and these babies really do work!  They are wonderful to wear... all day long.  Incredible shoes!

It is still hot here in Dallas though so I knew I wanted to go with a very "light" ensemble. 

Last night I had planned a different ensemble but, alas, the high heels redirected me.

Given that I pulled this outfit together in a rush this morning I think I did okay.


Simple combination.  White blouse.  Dark pencil skirt.  Great pair of heels.

In other words, my daily "uniform."

As I said, "light" and "comfortable".

This incredible blouse did the trick.

I cannot help but feel so sophisticated when I wear it.

I feel so "grown up."

I mean, look at that wonderful neckline...

It is certainly feminine.

Wouldn't you agree?

As I have told you before, I am a committed member of the "Community of Girls Who Love Skirts."  

Mom is the founding member.  Hee Hee

This lovely "finished" denim number is also a recent Ann Taylor LOFT acquisition.

Unlike the shoes (paid full price... ugh!), I got this one for 40% off the regular price.  That is a little easier to justify.

Hee Hee

Truth... even at full price I see so many ensembles that this skirt will feature in... classic piece... perfect for my closet.

So everything comes together like this...

A simple combination.

A classic combination.

My favorite type of combination.

Perfect for a day in which the temps will close in on 90 degrees.

Throw on a light jacket and perfect for a walk home after dinner as well.


What do you think?

Did I do well?

 On a slightly different note...

Carrie Underwood is in town tonight.  LOVE her!  So wish I had tickets.  Have checked a few websites today hoping I would get lucky with someone needing to "dump" theirs at the last minute.  No such luck... at least not yet.

I will keep trying.

In the meantime... my girl is taking over on my iPod.  that will just have to do.

I truly appreciate every comment that is left on my blog.  Most are just so sweet and uplifting.

I do my best to return the comment in kind so I hope you will take a minute and leave me a note.
