Yikes, I didn’t get this posted in time to go out early this morning, but here it is! In today’s post, I’m sharing how much I am loving my lilac shoes and ruffle-sleeve tee outfit! You may remember these shoes from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ve written about them here. I also mentioned that I was in search of lilac clothing, as it is a color that is very limited in my closet. So, here it is!
The lilac shoes and ruffle-sleeve tee outfit
Are you as crazy about beautiful shoes as I am? I already know you are or you wouldn’t be reading this! Haha! There is just something alluring about a beautifully made shoe and this one is one of those shoes.
The heels, made by an Italian shoemaker, Lewit, have a conical heel and ruched slingback feature. These heels are higher than I usually wear, but, for me, a slingback works well, even in a higher heel. The suede is soft and the color is gorgeous. They are pricey; if I hadn’t picked them up during the sale, I probably would’ve passed, but on sale, I couldn’t resist.
If you’re in the market for a lovely pair of lilac shoes, check these out. The pointed toe is totally on trend.
The ruffle-sleeve tee came in a Trunk Club selection. It’s a boxy shape but has enough length to make it work. The fabric is a light sweater weight, making it perfect for a summer evening or for early fall. It will look great with a fall scarf and booties!
Of course, the dark wash in the jeans made a nice contrast to the lilac shoes and sweater. And these high-waist jeans are so flattering! You can see them here.
A vintage-look necklace was the accessory of choice for my lilac shoes and ruffle-sleeve tee outfit. It tied the whole look together, don’t you think? (Read about Casa Romantica here if you missed it.) This one is from a little shop at Casa Romantica, a historic home here in San Clemente and is made by a local artist. A unique piece like this can totally change the look of an outfit.
A leopard clutch is the final touch. If you don’t yet have one in your wardrobe, you should find one you like! A clutch is the perfect bag and in an animal print, it makes a great statement piece.
The lilac shoes and ruffle-sleeve tee outfit made casual
Pairing a beautiful tee with a well-fitting pair of jeans allows an outfit to be dressed up or down. With the lilac shoes, the outfit was dressy enough for business casual (assuming your business allows jeans or denim) or for a date night or girls’ night out. Just by changing the shoes, it takes on a more casual feel.
A pair of calf-hair mules goes with almost anything, and these are my favorites. They are comfortable and a slip-on is easy to wear.
The bag also gives the outfit a more casual look. Cognac is very popular for fall, and why not? It complements almost everything and pops when paired with an animal print. Here is a similar bag, also by Sole Society.
Ready to add some lilac to your closet?
What do you think of my lilac shoes and ruffle-sleeve tee outfit? (The tee is very inexpensive and comes in several colors including a stripe!) Or how about styled with the calf-hair slides? I am loving this outfit for color, comfort, and style. You can easily do the same. Add some lilac pieces to your fall wardrobe, add an animal print anything, pull on some well-fitting jeans, and you will look amazing!
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check in next week when I’ll share some other items from the Trunk Club selection.
