If I had my choice, I would have lived in 1865 and been best friends with Laura and Mary. We would have done all the things that pioneer best friends do together, including making sugar on snow candy and stewing pumpkin in big kettles over the wood stove.
However judging from the style (despite how cool petticoats are), I would have thrived in the ’60s. Mainly just because I love high-waisted pencil skirts. And vintage floral dresses. And wide headbands.
My favorite part about this outfit is the shoes!!!
I LOVE (!!) these shoes. I tried them on Macy’s a month ago and loved them so much that I almost bought them in a size 7 and risked losing all feeling in my pinky toe. But then I came to my senses and ordered them in the proper size a few weeks later. I told myself that if I kept thinking about them for three weeks, they would be worth buying. And well, I dreamed about those shoes at night. I walked slowly through the Macy’s shoe department, petting the beautiful leather and faux wooden heel. I had to have them.
So I finally bought them. And now I wear them every day even though it’s 95 degrees out and the rest of the sane population wears flip-flops or wedges. I don’t care. I wear what I want!
