Pretty and Perforated

Chicago Style

Chicago Style

The goods:
• tan sweater from Forever21

• striped tunic from H&M
• skinny cords from J.Crew
• perforated slingbacks from Forever21
• necklaces from Vintage Underground and Forever21
• bracelets from Forever21, J.Crew, IGWT

I spotted these sandals on Forever 21's site and made a beeline for them in the shop over the weekend. I've been admiring the perforated trend since Coach and J.Crew both had awesome pairs last summer, but am so glad I waiting for this affordable – and comfortable – pair! I love the lace-up detail, and at only $26, they don't break the bank. Grab a pair before they're gone (I was one of three girls to snag them before the sales girl could even tag and stock them on the shoe shelves!).

So similar to these styles ... but a fraction of the cost!

  1. Hello! I am so happy to have found your blog. Your outfits are adorable (and oh my goodness affordable!). I recently just became interested in vintage finds and markets in the Chicago area. FINALLY went to the Randolph Street Market a couple weekends ago and loved it! And now I need to check out the one in Kane County...and buy those Forever 21 shoes.

    1. Yes! Check out Kane County ... think Randolph St., but much larger (and much cheaper outside the city)
