Review: Microflora Mary-Janes

Thes Microflora Mary-Janes are so bright and pretty in person. I love all the fun colors in them and that they'll add a little kick to any outfit. The satin material used elevate these pumps, making them feel and look more expensive.

I haven't worn them out just yet but they felt pretty comfortable walking around on my carpet. The 1" platform certainly helps comfort-wise.

I ordered both colorways and liked each of them. The blue colorway seemed a bit more muted since there are less colors going on (mainly blue, green, pink and a little yellow) but they are certainly still a statement shoe. The flowers are smaller making the pattern a smaller scale.

The multi colorway are more colorful and striking to me. Lots of colors going on - pink, purple, green, yellow, red, black & white. They also have a mix of two patterns, using one for the body of the shoe and the other for the strap, platform and heel.

I found they ran true to size, despite the confusing online reviews. I am almost always a size 8 in shoes and that's the size that fit best. I also ordered them in 8 1/2 and those were slipping off me a bit as I walked around in them on my carpet. And a 7 1/2 would have been too tight.

I'm really happy with these and can't wait to style them. They are a fun shoe for the spring and summer and will add a little something special to my outfits. I know I'll have to keep the rest of my outfit pretty muted but I don't mind letting them stand in the spotlight.

So which colorway do you like better?? Although I like both of them, I don't think they're different enough from each other to own both. They pretty much add the same punch to an outfit. I'm partial to one of them but I want to know which Microflora Mary-Jane you like better. So go ahead and vote in my poll below...

OOTD: Pink Brights

Happy Tuesday! I forgot to post this outfit that I wore last week, as you can see from my hair being longer than it was yesterday. I love the bright colors in this top so I decided to pair it with a bright pink cardigan.

OOTD: Ardennes in Bloom

Hope you all had a great weekend! We had gorgeous weather so to take advantage of it we spent most of the weekend outside. On Saturday we went to the zoo and Gigi just loved seeing all the animals! And on both days we ate all of our meals on our deck. Safe to say that I won't be looking forward to Wednesday when it's supposed to rain. Here's what I wore to church yesterday...

My Spring Wishlist

Every Spring it seems like Anthropologie pulls out all the stops and this year is no different. The have tons of new beauties to drool over right now. My wishlist keeps getting longer and longer but I've managed to narrow it down to these seven items...

1) Australe Cardigan: cute stripes and the flower detail make it special
2) Ampay Necklace: pretty colors that will mix n' match with everything
3) Microflora Mary-Janes: it was love at first sight with these beauties! And I just ordered them so I'll do a review when they get here.
4) AG Polka Dot Ankle Stevie: love the subtle polka dot print
5) Bedecked Flounce Tee: the peek-a-boo polka dots in the back are a cute surprise
6) Diamond Kite Dress: a whimsical kite print with ruffles, I want!
7) Highlighted Frequencies Cardigan: a very missoni-esqe print, don't you think?

OOTD: Tempting Trellis

Happy Anthropologie sale day! I am really tempted by these, I just can't decide if I should pull the trigger on them or not. Anyone tried them on or seen them in real life??

I'm not sure why I didn't get this cardigan when it went on sale a couple years ago. I love the vibrant flowers and that some of them have stitching which is a pretty touch. So after months of eBay stalking, I finally found one in my size! Here's what I wore to church on Sunday...
