Lace and Keds

You may have seen on my Instagram over the weekend that I got a pair of Keds from the Rifle Paper Co collaboration, and I'm literally obsessed! I have always admired the designs that Anna Bond creates, so when I saw that she was doing a collection with Keds I jumped at the opportunity to snag a pair.

I think the last time I owned a pair of platform shoes was probably in the 90s when I was a kid. Seeing them come back in style has been a little strange to see, and honestly I'm not the biggest fan of the trend. However, on this sneaker and with the colorful, floral print I'm all about it! Actually, having the triple decker style provides a bit more padding for your foot, making it feel like you're walking on clouds. 

I plan on wearing these shoes with so many things this spring/summer, like dresses and skirts, but for today's look I dressed them down with classic pair of jeans. I'm wearing the 'Avedon' by Citizens of Humanity, which is always my go-to pair. They sit higher up on my hips, so I never have to worry about the back popping out when I bend over, and they have a great amount of stretch while still retaining their shape with each wear. I'm a dark wash kind of gal, which is another reason why this pair is my favorite!

I paired a cream crochet lace and silk blouse with my jeans, so that I wouldn't detract from the fun colors in the shoes. The one I'm wearing is by Gibson (old) but I have linked a few other similar tops here, here, and here. I finished it off with my go-to accessory as of late, the BaubleBar crispin drop earrings in blush pink. They're just so fun to wear; I can't get enough of them!

There are currently just a couple of sizes left in this print/style at Anthropologie as well as (there are also two other styles and prints on their website). According to the Rifle Paper Co website, they are releasing a small assortment of Keds at select retailers on March 9th (3 days away!), and you can sign up to receive notifications regarding that release here. If you weren't able to get a pair this go-around, I hope you're able to get one on the 9th! 

Happy Monday everyone! Make it a great week, and thanks for stopping by! xo
