i’m considering a new shoe. normally this wouldn’t be blog-worthy news, but these ballet flats from linge are actually a modified ballet shoe, and not just like every other heelless shoe deemed a ‘ballet’ flat. i think i love them, but i’m not quite sure.
the colors are great and they seem super functional. but i continuously run into the big foot dilemma, where i tell myself “yes dani these are cute in a size 5, but what happens to them in a size 11?” either they still maintain said level of cuteness or they instantly become clown shoes.
over the last six months i’ve found myself in the midst of a pretty intense obsession with barre and perhaps this plays a role in my wanting of such a shoe. p.s. ladies, if you haven’t been to a barre class, try it, you’ll never look back. coming from a sports background, ballet is such a challenge for me. the strength, grace and body awareness involved in barre workouts is unbelievable. i have mad respect for dancers.
anyone tried these puppies out? i’m also seeking opinions on the whole ‘barefoot’ shoe revolution that i’ve basically ignored since its inception. i’m all ears y’all.

two things that are fantastic right now:
[one] we have been graced with cold weather and that is exciting.
[two (and more importantly)] austin had his first of many tattoo sessions, which is rad.
he’s been planning this sleeve for awhile now, and this was just the first of three sessions. (it’s his birthday & christmas gift this year) even without the shading i think it’s beautiful already.
i can’t stop looking at his arm, which is probably pretty annoying, but who can blame me?
the entire inspiration came from the book ‘goodnight moon’ which holds a lot of meaning for him so we’re thrilled it turned out so well. the rooster is my favorite part.
er, not much to be said about this except wow.
the styling is perfect. and how ’bout them orange shoes?!
see the rest here.
a noteworthy collection…
are you kidding me right now? these floral prints are phenomenal. spring here we come.
we’ve decided not to do gifts this year on account of having absolutely no money. but, in an alternate universe somewhere where i make a sound living napping and watching imdb movie trailers, here’s what i’d be getting my man this year:
perfect for a casual date night.
it’s almost december folks. that means an assortment of holiday hangouts and festive buffoonery is on the horizon.
on our calendar for the next month is:
a birthday party (festive cocktail attire)
a classy office party
a wild office party
the only words that come to mind when deciding what to wear to each of these are:
and when in doubt, accessorize your little black dress!
our first party is this weekend. i’ll be sure to share what i decide on!
lace: one.two.three. bold colors: one.two.three. sparkle: one.two.three. accessories.
sometimes the best outfits are the ones you throw together in five minutes. perfect for a day on soco.
