In this issue of Favorites we take a look back to some of my favorite shoe moments from 2014. It won’t be a complete best-of list as some of the shoes from my collection haven’t been worn yet this year, but close enough. March in particular was fruitful, or well shoeful, it had been a very good month mainly due to the lack of snow or ice we had this year. I’m willing to say it was the best winter ever!
I can’t believe it’s Tuesday already, time sure is flying by lately! These photos are from Sunday and I wore this outfit to a family lunch. The day was absolutely beautiful and so all I needed was my favorite cropped fake leather jacket and a pair of girly shoes:
It’s on rainy days especially that I like to brighten things up and have fun with my outfits. It’s because when it’s dull and grey outside, I don’t want to add to the dullness and greyness. I also love to wear bright pink, stripes and an interesting (floral) print – not necessarily all together but hey, why not?
The outfit above was worn only to walk Mr. Pig and consists of one of my favorite swapped tops, which I often lounge in at home, a pair of crazy leggings from the Versace for H&M limited edition, the sweater is super old and is from H&M, the scarf is also H&M, I have no idea where the socks are from – actually I think I may have stolen these from M after they shrunk in the washing machine. And the fun bright rain boots are from Gate.
The photo below is of another outfit, I wore this to work and had actually just bought that umbrella because it was raining so hard and I always forget to bring an umbrella. I needed a new one anyways, as M had lost my pale pink almost beige Topshop one that I had lent him. This one is from Sixx and is more pink and more coral so I like it more. The shoes I had just swapped that day, I don’t know what brand they are but I love the colors and was happy to change into them as the rain was particularly brutal that day (and a pair of jelly shoes is always better in the rain than a pair of leather ballerina flats). Oh and the red dress is a recent purchase from Asos.
First of all I hope everyone is having a lovely holiday and if you don’t celebrate (we don’t either, we just go visit family) then at least it’s nice to have the day off, isn’t it? In honor of the Easter bunny and his bright colored friends, I wore a very thematic outfit. Actually, I just have a thing for bright colored clothes…
To start this issue of Favorites let me show you one of my favorite outfits that I’ve ever worn. It symbolizes everything that is Very Veronique: a crazy print (Iron Fist t-shirt), a dose of a fun bright color (or fun tights in general, these are from Asos, the bag is from Pull&Bear and it’s personalized with a little picture of Dracul on the front), unique shoes (Iron Fist “Filthy Landlubber” wedges). Then add a favorite mini skirt (Zara Woman) and a fake leather jacket (Topshop). I wore this outfit to a lunch date and I have to add that the shoes were getting a lot of attention.
In this volume of Favorites we revisit April 2014. April is always a busy month, with the nicer weather there’s more to do and also so many people have their birthdays in April, it’s madness. Speaking of birthdays, this is what I wore to M’s brother’s birthday dinner.
