Are you old enough to remember collecting box tops? You saved a certain number from cereal boxes and could send them in for a prize. Or maybe your family collected Green Stamps or Blue Chip Stamps? I think we may have done all three in my family at various times.
This is a different kind of “box top” though, or rather a boxy top. Once again I find myself bending one of my own silhouette
rules guidelines: avoid tops that are boxy or chunky. This Eileen Fisher sweater is both, but I really like how it looks on and how it moves, and the bootcut jeans seem to balance it out.
The weave of the sweater is open enough to lighten the look a bit too.
If you were trying to read this blog between Wednesday evening and yesterday morning, you may have landed on a screen telling you that you’d encountered a Fatal Error. (Hyperbole much, Software Deities?) I’d tried to do a routine application of a software update which completely crashed the blog. (Apparently I wasn’t the only one this happened to.) I couldn’t even get into my blog “dashboard” to try and restore the prior version. It’s a horrible feeling and I spent most of Wednesday evening trying not to hyperventilate! But fortunately our young tech savvy cousin was able to come to the rescue and set everything right by yesterday afternoon.
I first saw these Clark’s open-toe shoes over at The Coveted, and they indeed are as comfortable as Jennine said they were. These are one of those rare look-higher-than-they-feel shoes. They’re a bit more covered up than a sandal, so may be more office appropriate for some of you.
Have you bent any of your own style rules lately? Were you happy with the results?
