You Gotta Be Kitten Me!






Cardigan: J.Crew
Dress: ModCloth
Wedges: ModCloth
Tights: Old (gift?)
Belt: from a Lulu's dress
Necklace: Thrifted
Bracelets: gift from Punky & F21

Yep, cat wedges. I don't think it's too much of a secret how cat-obsessed I am, one look at my Instagram or Twitter and you'll see about 90% of it is just photos of Zephyr and Zeb. So when these wedges showed up on ModCloth last week, I immediately bought them. They're so ridiculous, I could not be more in love. Do not be alarmed if an entire cat-themed outfit shows up soon, it's that bad. I have no shame, no shame at all.

I've been loving longer lengths lately, I think long skirts and dresses are just easier, and also really pretty. Despite my predilection for really high shoes, I don't like being incapacitated by my clothes (like short skirts). I like to move, and I like to move quickly. I've been told by many, many people that I walk too fast, bordering on running at times. I like to think I'm efficient. But anyway, yeah, long stuff. One downside is that I look like a granny when I head in to work: I have my winter boots on, long vintage (read: old lady-ish) coat, and long dress peeking out the bottom. It's not even close to cute. I crept in to work like this last week, and unfortunately had to pass by a bus full of high school students on a field trip, I don't think they were impressed. Whatever, at least I don't have to ride a school bus.

I've pretty much filled up my instagram with pictures of my dog in various outfits. It's too hard to not take a giant load of pictures when an animal is around! Also, I love your cat boots! I want more things with cat prints on them!

LOVE the wedges. I saw them on Modcloth the other week and did a doubletake because I thought they were camo (not something I'd expect from Modcloth).
I'm obsessed with cats too. We have a fat orange one and a little black and white kitten. They rule our apartment :)

Those boots make me happy. Big giant grin on my face right now because of them!

Jessica said...

I was actually checking out Modcloth's shoe offering's recently, saw these and thought of you!

Stephanie said...

Love the boots! They are weirdly functional in their neutral tones and indistinguishable pattern from a distance.

Hannah said...

i am cat obsessed as well. in addition, my family keep buying me cat apparel and home goods. as in cat slippers, a crazy cat lady board game, cat mugs, cat ornaments, etc. cats are the best.
love that dress, by the way!

curious constellation said...

I squealed when I saw the boots!

& Your hair is just wow!

Carmen said...

I'm having a meow-moment myself!

Hanna said...

I bet you don't look as granny-ish as you think, or if so, then like a real cool granny.

love it! these wedges are so deliriously deranged, i cannot even stand it.

these are the type of shoes that are so ridiculous, you must wear them with everything.

cat cocktail party?

Marlen said...

I'm seriously obssessed with your blog, gets me through the boring work stretches. that dress is gorge! do you have a tumblr?

I am so glad I'm not the only "Cat Lady" in her twenties! I love your new wedges and can't wait to see an entire cat themed outfit post. I have the same problem you do on my walk to work! My long down coat (read: I look like I'm wearing a sleeping bag) and huge clunky snow boots are not sexy in the least bit! Then again I'm not riding a school bus either so I'm in good shape!
