WIW: Warming up to the oxfords

Today is still only my 2nd wear from these, and I really can see myself buying another pair of these in a different color.  They're very soft and comfortable - I even walked across campus in them today (that never happens in work shoes!).

Yesterday, I wore them with the new boyfriends, also on their first trip out.  I'm pleased that these Kut jeans have some give, but were not falling off my behind by the end of the day.  I hate overly stretchy pants, and these passed the test, even though I spend 3 hours in the car yesterday.

Today, I was having a style dilemma and quickly went with the green pants + this top. It works OK, though it's not how I really wanted to style the shoes on their first trip to the office. I'm pretty sure I lost a pair of black capris somewhere along the line...but the pop of green works with the very warm day we're having here.

    Oh Von, I especially love them in outfit 1. The brown (+ the lighter taupe of your bag) is just so gorgeous with those shades of blues (love the light grey blazer with it too). And those BFs look excellent on you. Two great finds for sure.

    And hurrah for finding comfy shoes that are also stylish. Which colour are you thinking of next?-)

    So glad they worked out for you!  Fab shoe, and it works beautifully with both outfits.

    They are a great shoe and #1 looks super.

    I love both outfits and need the shoes!

    really love them with the BF's!! - glad they made it across campus!! - I'm not so thrilled with my pair yet - they're comfy but I'm struggling just a bit to style them with my BF's - you've inspired me to try again!!!

    Great look, Von - oxfords and BFs are a perfect match!

  • JAileen replied 6 years ago

    I love outfit #1 - brown and blue look great together, the shoes look great on you, and your bag is beautiful, too.

    More oxford outfit love.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    See, I KNEW they'd go great with your bags. #1 is especially fab but both outfits are terrific.

    Nice oxfords, they work really well for both of these looks.

    Picture #1?  You. Look. Epic.  Gorgeous!

  • Catnip replied 6 years ago

    The oxfords look great on you and are perfect with both outfits. 

    Oxfords are one of my favorite shoe styles.  I now have four pairs, so you can certainly get another pair. Initially I bought them because they were so comfortable, but now I love them for the way they look.  What can be better than comfortable shoes and a big smile on your face?

    More love for #1 but #2 is good too!

    Thanks everyone!  You all know I have "big foot fears" of oxfords making my feet look giant -- but I was told yesterday how SMALL my feet looked (that has never, ever happened to me!).  In addition, I'm giving this shoe a DEFINITE thumbs up for comfort.  They really do go with about 4 of my bags, so that's a bonus as well.

    For anyone interested, here is the link to the shoe -- I'm thinking the light gray would be as close to "summer whites" as I could get without fear of dirt and scuffs.

    secret handshake for us big foot girls ( wiggles backside and fingers while pointing our oxford clad toes!!!)

    Oh these are fantastic Von! Love how the oxfords play with that fabulous handbag.

  • leopardluxe replied 6 years ago

    Great outfits! I really love the leopard-like print top and brown oxfords with the green pants. Such a cool juxtaposition that really works! YLF!
