Novelty heels & purse

This is an outfit I can’t take credit for putting together. My husband and friends all had a hand in this one. My husband had bought me this awesome Jump From Paper purse for my birthday, and then went shopping for this skirt and top, so, I would have an outfit to match my new little purse. (He’s a keeper!) My cousin, Mandie, and friend, Ashlee, both sent me links to these awesome heels I am wearing…they had immediately thought how well they would match my Jump From Paper purse. And they couldn’t have been more right!

These heels and my purse were made for each other! And you may not believe me by looking at them, but these heels are the most comfortable pair of heels that I own. They are also by far the easiest to walk in (and attempt to twirl in, there will be blooper photos at the end of the post!). I was a bit nervous ordering them off LightintheBox, just because I had never heard of it and the site looked a little sketchy. However, I had no issues ordering from them. Some of the reviews also said that they had sizing issues with these heels, but this was not the case for me. I am usually between a 7 1/2 and an 8, and usually go with an 8 when ordering heels that do not come in wide. I ordered an 8 in these and they fit me perfectly.

OPI Nail Polish

I guess I can take credit for one part of this outfit. I had unknowingly picked up this OPI nail polish that matched everything perfectly. And I just wanted to show off how much better I’m getting at painting my nails. Haha. (But please excuse my disgustingly frizzy hair. It was a horribly humid day to run out of hair product! Haha.)

This is a skirt that I love to try and twirl in. However, I’m not very good at it…and it’s been a while since I included blooper photos. So, at the end of this post I will include a few of my failed attempts at twirling…and a couple pictures of when a low flying plane scared me. Enjoy!

  1. Love your outfit and colors! I’ve been wanting a purse like that for ages! All the fun photo shoots! Sounds like you have quite the wonderful husband! Mine knows my style but I still think I’d have to heavily coach him into what I want for him to consider getting me clothes lol! Love your twirl picts. I think you still did a wonderful job.


    1. Thank you so much, Heather! My husband never fails to surprise me! And you definitely need to get a purse like this. 🙂 I hope you had a lovely weekend of traveling!

  2. Wow your husband is definitely a keeper! Getting you that purse and that skirt is amazing-he has a very good taste in fashion 🙂 Plus those shoes are beautiful too! Your family does a great job in terms of picking out clothes. I am impressed hahahq! And gosh-I have always loved a good twirly skirt, even when I was little. Yours looks like so much fun to spin around in. If I were wearing that, I would be dizzy from twirling so much hahah!
    Anyway, finding and following you on Insta so we can keep in touch more 🙂

    1. Haha thank you, Olivia! I’ll have to tell them to check out the comments in this post. 😉 And haha! I may have been a bit dizzy from “attempting” to twirl too.. I really need to practice more! 😉 Looking forward to seeing you on Insta!

  3. Such a cute post! I love blooper photos, so fun! And it’s good to know people that don’t take themselves too seriously! Oh, and this bag is definitely something else!



    1. Thank you so much, Paulina! And I couldn’t agree more, it’s just not any fun if you take yourself too seriously as a blogger. 🙂

  4. This outfit is too fricken cute and those mint nails, can’t get enough! Love mint way too much. I also really love the white skirt paired with that belt – I need more polka dots and bows in my closet.

    These blooper photos are too funny! So awesome that you added that


    1. Thank you, Ela! Glad you enjoyed the blooper photos. 🙂 And I could definitely use more mint in my wardrobe (especially now that I have the nail polish, shoes and purse. Haha.)!
