Two Tickets to Paradise

______It's funny how in her most recent post, Lyddie mentioned that she was on the prowl for an anchor belt she saw me wearing, because I've totally been on the prowl for something I saw her wearing before, too--a chunky gold chain bracelet.  I'd see it appear in many of her posts, and I'm pretty sure I told her I wanted to break into her house and steal it every time she wore it.  Luckily for Lyddie, my search for said chain bracelet came to an end when I saw one at Charming Charlie, land of fabulous jewelry.  That being said, I never did end up tracking her down and breaking into her house.  Ah, well.  That's something I can put on my to-do list to occupy a lonely weekend.

______Anyway, my dastardly plans aside, what do you guys think of the flatform trend that's going around?

______I wasn't so sure about them, but then I found these for $20.00 at Kohl's the other week and thought they were actually quite cute!  Then yesterday at Ross, I found some simple black ones for the same price.  Flatform sandals are quite comfy to walk around in and I rather like how they give you height without making the arches of your feet ache.  It's silly how quickly you can go from hating something to embracing it... it's like growing your own tomato, but it's shoes.

and now, i'm going to fly to your house, break in, and steal those earrings! haha. they are great!
I understand what you're saying about the platform sandal trend, I quite like it because it is more sensible than the stripper heel trend...which sees lots of women teetering around in heels they can't walk in... so i definitely agree with the sandals giving people height, while still being able to perform basic functions like walking. :)

I wanted to say the same like Jacqueline before...these earrings ar stunning!
I bought some H&M flatforms some weeks ago, but didn't wear them yet...so I don't know if they are comfy but they look so. You're right, they make you taller and don't make your feet tired.

Oh man, those earrings! So good. Flatforms are one of those trends that I've been super leery about as well, but after your glowing recommendation and pretty, pretty outfit, I may have to try them out! Looking lovely as always, m'lady :)

Elanor said...

Flatforms seem like such a weird concept but I LOVE THEM. I don't really own a pair but they seem so much nicer than regular heels or even wedges! And I need the height so I gotta get me a pair.

Girl, your legs go on for MILES :) I love your jewelry!

Haha, good think you found that bracelet, since you do know I've got my attack dog on duty. She's quite ferocious, as she barks from her hiding spot under the kitchen table...

The airplane earrings are so cute, and did you see the airplane cuff? I was totally smitten with that too...

Your legs goes on forever and ever, don't they? So trim and slender that you pull off the outfit perfectly. Those earrings? Get outta here Ali! ;)

Well... said...

Ahahahaha, YES to the flatform craze! Seriously, I never thought I'd get on that bandwagon but...yeah, they actually look really cute on. Love these white ones you're rocking.
And girl...you go ahead and break into her house...because while you're over there, I'm gonna be snooping through your room searching for those airplane earrings...haha, seriously, cutest things I've ever seen!

Loving your new chunky bracelet!! I've seen her wear it too, and I've wanted one ever since! I'm also totally loving your plane earrings... seriously, they are PLANE EARRINGS?! Soooo cool. I know what you mean about embracing trends that you used to hate. I used to hate jumpsuits for example, but I actually fell in love with them when I first tried them on! hehehe.

Oh hello, Grace Kelly. I'm not sure how I feel about the platforms trend right now-- on me. I have stumpy little legs, so I feel like they just reiterate that. That being said, I was never a fan of heels, and lately.. I've been snatching them up. ;)

YOU LOOK SO LOVERLY GIRL.

Really cute look! And I know what you mean, it's like the more you see a certain style of clothing the more it becomes more acceptable looking! And by the way, I love the cute little peter pan collar on this top! :)

This is a really pretty outfit! I love the peter pan collar top and the cool airplane earrings. I don't think I have ever seen airplane earrings, they are so cool. I didn't like the flatform trend either. But now I kinda do. And this outfit is making me like them even more :D It's kind of the same with sneaker wedges. When I first saw them, I thought they were the ugliest things ever. But now it's number one on my wishlist! Anyway, this outfit is really awesome. Such a great outfit for a hot summer day.
