I came to find that the round toe looks better when in need of shoes to be paired with black opaque tights and a skirt. Even though I am a fan of the pointy toe, which many, especially guys, think look like witches shoes...hehe...they don't look as great, in my eyes, paired with tights, especially if they have any straps around the ankle! :)
One of my favorite stores, as many of you know, is Forever 21 for finding a variety of fashionable looks at super affordable prices, so, that even if it is just a phase in fashion or current trend, it is okay if you only wear it a few times during one season. I especially love Forever 21 for accessories and think accessories can really tie an outfit together!
Since the nautical look is in, as I displayed in one of my previous blogs, I picked up a silver and gold anchor necklace. Truth be told I stood there looking at both, putting them against the nautical colors they had out, and was trying to decide which I thought I would pair most with the red, white and blues. After much deliberation...hehe...I thought the silver looks good because blue and white are cooler colors, but I love gold paired with red and when pairing red, white and blue together, like during the 4th of July, I always go with gold accessories, so at $5.80 each, I just went ahead an bought both.
I figure if I pair the blue and white striped look with a white skirt or blue jeans, I'll wear the silver one and if I wear blue and white paired with my red hobo bag or some sort of red for an additional punch of color, as my mother always says, I'll wear the gold! :) Let me know which you think, gold or silver, pairs best with the nautical look and which you would choose to wear if sporting that look in the comments below!
Other than that, I picked up a few basics, which can always come in handy! :) Plus, Forever 21 has an assortment of colored short sleeved T-shirts, in both scoop and v-neck, for only $3.50 each! You can't beat that, especially when you can get them in a wide variety of colors and when they are super soft with a hint of spandex, which will help it keep a good shape over time.
Thanks so much for coming on this mini haul with me, I'll be sure to post more in the future and even videos of my shopping adventures and all the affordable goodies I pick up along the way!
