Casual Friday - Those Darn Shoes

I struggled with this outfit on Friday - it was hot still, but I didn't want to wear another dress this week, so I went with my white denim skirt, which I love.
I'm kind of "meh" about the rest of it. The shirt is nearing the end of its life in my wardrobe (it's gapey and I hate ironing, so I never iron it). The vest is vintage, but not really meant to be in regular circulation as it's starting to fall apart.

But the shoes...I got these last year and loved them. They're Aerosoles, too, so I thought they'd be awesome. BUT. They tear the crap out of my feet: ankles, toes. And they hurt. So I think this is going to be the Last Wear. Buh-bye, bad shoes.

See? Aren't they cute? But too bad, so sad.

Vest (Dunn & Co., vintage), blouse (Esprit), skirt (Club Monaco, consignment), belt (Plum), necklace (Plum), earrings (Le Chateau).


  1. Oh, they are adorable! Bummer about the fit.

  2. I think the outfit look great, too bad that the shoes were hurting you because they are beautiful and usually Aerosoles are very confortable.

  3. Oh god, sorry - I read your description of your shoes as 'arseholes' not 'aerosoles', ROFLOL!! I suppose that they are really if they hurt so much - thanks for the laugh - even if it was unintended :-)

  4. I love the skirt and shoes. The top half looks a little too warm.

  5. Hi, I love the shoes.... maybe give them another opportunity ?
    When this happens to me, I moisten/almost wet newspaper and stuff the shoes - wait about a week and they usually feel better.

  6. Thanks, Beth. Yeah, I keep hoping: "This time they won't hurt." But no.

    Nurmisur, thank you. I know! I've got a couple of pairs of Aerosoles and they are usually awesome. These are devil shoes!

    Kiltsnquilts - welcome! Glad you had a laugh. ;-P

    Jane - the top half was fine, actually. The blouse is linen/cotten and the vest was loose enough not to be hot. Thanks!

    Thanks, Lorena, and welcome! I know...I keep giving them one more chance and every time, they tear up my feet. Life is too short for bad shoes. That is a good idea for tight shoes - but these ones fit perfectly; they just rub in bad spots.

  7. This is an adorable look and the shoes just make it.

    I have had to stop my fashion blog 'Is That New' because of security issues (very disturbing). I am really disappointed to say the least. Thank you so much for your support. However, my writing blog is still up and running.


  8. Those wedges are great and I love the white denim pencil skirt...I've been looking for one for awhile now but just can't seem to find anything for one reason or another.

  9. Thanks, Mervat! I did notice that your blog was down - I tried to visit you yesterday. I will check out your writing blog soon.

    Watergirl, thanks! There is actually an identical skirt (even the same size) at my local consignment shop.
