It's funny how I get on a kick and don't realize it until several days of wearing something so similar. This week's kick was twofold. First, I wore some version or other of this blazer several times over the last few days (here and here). The blazer for me has been the new cardigan. My office is usually freezing so I need something and that something used to be a cardigan. Lately, the blazer wins out every time.
Second, I wore these Valentino shoes almost every day. As the lovely LCT commented "Those Valentinos are a great score. They're the new classics!!!" And they really are for me. The color makes them so versatile, the little kitten heel gives me a break from my normal 4+ inchers and the studs give them that extra special something.
