White Maxi Skirt: Thrifted, Pink Top: Thrifted, Necklace: Vintage, Ring: YSL, Shoes: Miu Miu

I’ve been contemplating buying these shoes for over 3 months now and after painfully watching them sell out online over the weeks I told myself that if they became available again, I would buy them in a heartbeat. I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of platforms for so long and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to find them, but boy was it worth the wait. They’re the perfect height, extremely comfortable, a versatile camel colour that suits my skin tone, apposed to a nude that washes me out, and they fit me perfectly. They’re exactly what I’ve needed to style with my light, feminine, and whimsical outfits and are impossibly more beautiful in real life. I know I seem to declare my love for every piece is show you on here but it’s different with these shoes. To put it simply, if I was a shoe, this is what I would be. To me, they, are, perfect. I’ve been quite obsessed with penny loafer platforms ever since I found a brown pair in a vintage store last year (which you can view here) so you can imagine how ecstatic i was when i saw Topshop and Miu Miu was now making them too! They seem to be the perfect balance between vintage inspired and modern and I’m hoping to get my hands on a pair from Topshop too. Unfortunately this is just one of three outfit posts I have coming with yet another maxi skirt so I’ll apologize in advance, but isn’t this white flowy one I found opshopping last week just so pretty? I can’t bare to part with it, and it seems extremely appropriate for Spring – don’t even get me started on how comfortable it is either. So these are my new Miu Miu’s! I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend and don’t forget my auctions are closing over the next two nights so be sure to have a look here – many pieces are still only a few mere dollars! The sun is finally out so I’m in a hurry to be outside making the most of every ray. First thing I’m going to do today? Plant some brightly coloured flowers I bought for the office and then I’m off to try out a new sushi train.
