Happy Seis de Mayo!

What? That’s not a thing? Well then.

Just thought I would share a couple of cute new (and semi-new) purchases, both of which happen to be grey.

First up: today I am wearing my beloved Euro-retro dress (from this post), which is positively perfect for picnicking – but I wore a different belt with it.

Elastic grey belt with faux leather bow: H&M (size S), like $6 – I think I like it better than the black belt. Or is it too twee? What do you think?

Ze back:

It’s so cutely designed!

Next up: wonderful, cute, sexy, sassy, MAJA grey booties!

Grey suede “Peonny” platform booties: Steve Madden. There aren’t even words for how much I LOVE these! They only had a size 8.5 (I’m a 9), but they are worth a little squeeze. They also look crazy tall, but, because of the platform, they aren’t actually as tall as they look. Apparently they made them in black and purple, too!

The soft, muted suede accented by shiny patent + the simple shape adorned with one giant, ruffled flower = J’adore! I also got a serious deal on them (on clearance for 30% off, plus 25% off with Macy’s Friends & Family discount). It’s so funny that I picked up the lone bootie without seeing the brand (the tags were covering it), and when the saleswoman brought me the box, of COURSE they were Steve Madden! I am simply always drawn to them. Say what you will about SM – when he gets it right, he really gets it right.

Oh my goodness, they look right at home out with friends at Double Daughters in Denver, don’t you think? :)

      Do you have H&M in STL? I tried Googling to find this belt online somewhere, but I came up short! :(
