Wish List Wednesday: Barely There Heels

ASOS HEAD LIGHT Heeled Sandals

ASOS Head Light Heeled Sandals 

Are you a heels or flats kind of gal? Maybe you’re that brave solider walking up the stairs in pumps (#workit) OR maybe you’re more like me, lusting over heels but typically opting for walkable flats.

Every once in awhile though, an occasion pops up when heels are a must — like date night or paired with a midi skirt (gotta elongate those legs!). And weddings always require a heel. I’m attending two weddings this summer and decided it was time to invest in a pair of “barely there” heels. I’ve been seeing the minimalist shoe trend everywhere — celebs and bloggers have been rocking sandals with nothing but a few skinny straps. They’re simple, sleek, and sexy.

My personal requirements for wedding shoes: they must be under $100, match any dress, and be under 3 or so inches because, helloooo, I want to dance in them!

Here are a few barely there sandals I’ve got my eye on that will look great for a wedding and cute with jeans. Which is your favorite?

Pleated midi skirt outfit

Skirt: LOFT Outlet (also love this one) | Shirt: Banana Republic | Heels: Corso Como | Bag: Target (similar) | Bracelets: Rocksbox (use code stylemethriftyxoxo for one free month!)

I like starting the work week off with a strong outfit game. I’ve been noticing a trend lately: when I wear a polished outfit on Monday, it makes facing the work week a little easier. Look good, work hard… or something like that!

I picked up this pleated midi skirt at the LOFT Outlet recently. Can we talk about outlets for a sec? Holy jackpot. Yes, outlet shopping requires stamina and patience, but if you can get yourself to a LOFT Outlet, the possibilities are endless. There was SO much merch packed into this store!

This skirt caught my eye among the racks and racks of clothing — it’s so flowy and I love the accordion pleats. I paired it with a classic white button down and nude heels for a polished outfit for the office. Happy Monday!

Wish List Wednesday: LOFT Swingy Midi Skirt

Wish List Wednesday: LOFT Swingy Midi Skirt

LOFT Swingy Midi Skirt

Perhaps it’s my upcoming 33rd birthday (ack!), but my wise old years have me re-thinking my wardrobe a bit. My twenties were a numbers game: how many pieces of inexpensive clothing could I cram into my closet? (answer: A LOT). But my thirties have me focusing in a bit more on fewer, higher quality pieces.

On that note, I’ve decided to rein myself in when it comes to my Wish List Wednesday posts. I typically round up 10+ items under a certain theme — tank tops, pineapples — to give you guys lots of shopping options. But sometimes less is more! Sometimes I’m wishing for one specific item of clothing.

So we’re switching things up! Today my wish list is short: I want this LOFT Swingy Midi Skirt. How freakin’ versatile is this skirt?! You can dress it up or down and I love the swingy shape. It comes in XXS-XL sizing (also available in petite), making it easier to get the right fit on the first try. And at $69.50, we’re still not breaking the bank!
