Fashion rules



Happy Monday!  I wore this outfit to dinner with friends on Saturday night.  I realized recently that I have these little unspoken (well, until now) fashion "rules" that I pretty much always stick to, and this outfit is a great example of one of them.  If you follow this blog or have even read more than one post, you already know that comfort is a HUGE thing with me.  So one of my little rules is that only one piece of my outfit can be the least bit uncomfortable in the name of fashion.  In this outfit, I wanted to wear these shoes - and while I truly can't complain that these Sam Edelman's are unbearable - ANY and ALL heels over about 4 inches get sketchy after a few hours.  So for the rest of this look I was suuuuper comfortable - with this basic pair of dressy black shorts and a lightweight sweater.  Also, as I've said before, these shoes just do not need any help whatsoever making a statement.

Okay, maybe red lips help just a bit.  :)  What are your fashion rules?






Karen Millen shorts, Ann Taylor sweater, AT Loft necklace, F21 earrings and bangles, Francesca's ring, Michael Kors watch (here), Sam Edelman shoes, Coach shades, Eliza B clutch

  5. I swear you always look like you stepped out of a magazine. Totally jealous! I love this looks. Although it may be totally comfortable (aside from the shoes), you still look chic and pulled together. Love it.

  6. Love this outfit and you are totally right, after a few hours shoes with 4"+ in height can get sketchy... My #1 fashion rule is always flashy never trashy...LOL!

  9. This is such a cute outfit. My sister who does not blog or anything just walked pasted the screen and said "what a cute outfit." It's that great.
    I totally get you about wearing tall heels. No matter how comfy they are they eventually get un-comfy at some point.
    Cheers,
