Speaking of Polish and Style

Hey Family! I've been meaning to write about this fit for a couple of weeks. Sometimes life gets away with us. I loved this fit unfortunately my thrifted shoes bit the dust. I thought this was a great kick off as I never wear Toenail polish.  I rarely get pedicures it is a special treat and only get clear polish.  I usually wear boots or closed toe shoes year round so it does not really matter to me.  About a month ago I went on date night and wore some peep toe boots.  This fit right here is my 2nd time in my life wearing peep toes .  The bright yellow made me so happy whenever I looked down. 

It made me remember that Brady Bunch Song (SunShine Day)

I'm listening as I type it. I love this song.

My lovey sister and I were running errands and we went to a local community fest in our neighborhood. After that we went to our local Veterans Memorial park to just well take pictures of my Fit of the day and enjoy the weather. I live in a little suburb of Chicago and it really has a hometown feel.

Well now on to the meat and potatoes of the blog what I wore. You all have seen these pants before. They are like a high waist yoga print pant I love them. The top is like a very lightweight knit poncho reminiscent of a southwest theme. The shoes I blogged about before when I bought them in my $5 hollar boots. Earrings as usual thrifty price.

Oh I almost forgot. My boots fell apart ;( oh well one time wear less than a happy meal). They were cute for a minute. I have to be sure to check the soles of the shoes this is the 2nd time this has happens to me. Oh well onto the next.

The next being my wonderful sister who gifted me these shoes she wore in a recent wedding. The fit like a 2nd glove and will be worn on a date night. I love them and They are even better than the $5 hollar because she only wore them for the wedding for a few hours. My sister has been in a lot of weddings so I just might raid her closet because she does not wear heels and these she gifted me are lace peep toe with sparkles.

Let me know what you think of the fit or just say hello. I love it all. Have a great one until next time.

    Ok, I saw the fuchsia shoes and had to read!  That outfit is spectacular on you. WOW!! I am so sad the shoes bit the dust because they were the perfect finishing touch -- so bright and happy. I just love the pattern mix in the outfit between the pants and the top, and you look sensational in that high waisted dramatic style. One of my favourites on you yet. 

    New shoes look great for date night, too! 

  • Sara L. replied 4 years ago

    I love those pink peeptoe booties!  Are those the ones that fell apart?  What a bummer.  Fun outfit with the cropped top and high waisted pants.  I think you nailed the proportions.

  • JAileen replied 4 years ago

    You look beautiful! The surroundings are beautiful too.

  • Bijou replied 4 years ago

    I love this look and I am also sad that you pink shoes did not last. Your replacements are lovely and fit so well.

  • replied 4 years ago

    I love the expression : $5 holler .  Those are really sexy date night shoes, and definitely show off your ankle and foot - yours are really lovely.  And what can I say about that outfit ?  The pattern mixing is bang-on and I love the cropped-top-over-flown pant look you do so well.  Really works for you.

    I always enjoy looking at your community/neighborhood pictures - they are such great slices of life shots.  Have a great week!

  • Ledonna N. replied 4 years ago

    Suz- Thank you,  that is a raw deal but it happens when you thrift.  I have a few 100 pair that have held up well lol. 

    Sara, Yep those are the ones.  I want to find some more pants like these.  They fit like a dream and don't show all the lumps and bumps. 

    JAiLeen, Thank you this is our local veterans memorial park.  I just love being here. 

    Bijou-  Yes, I'm  just glad they fell apart at the end of the day and not while i was out and about.  Oh man that would have been bad.

    Lisap- wow what a compliment.  I wear an 11w and most time feel self conscious about exposing my feet.

  • Jane replied 4 years ago

    I've never seen that song before, very sunny! Thank you for introducing me to it!

    Great outfit, and as Lisap says, super pattern matching, and it looks good against the brickwork on the path. Lovely neighbourhood photos. 

    Love the replacement peep toes!

  • skylurker replied 4 years ago

    Hello, Ledonna, I love your 70's pants.

  • retailgirl replied 4 years ago

    The shoes are amazing! And I love your yellow toes. Toenail polish is a great "just for me" indulgence! You look fab!

  • Inge replied 4 years ago

    Now that's what I call happy shoes!! (The fuschia pair:-) And I love the cropped top and pattern mixed outfit with the flowy pants on you, LeDonna. Really great!
    The black shoes are good too, enjoy your date night!

    P.S. And thanks for often including pics of your daily life and environment, I adore those too.

  • catgirl replied 4 years ago

    You and your outfits make me smile! And the pink shoes - so fleeting but so wonderful.

  • rachylou replied 4 years ago

    Bummer about the shoes. They were an awesome hit of bright colour. Love this outfit. A bit of a different look. Great length on the pants.

  • Xtabay replied 4 years ago

    That's a fit with flavor!  Really nice, Ledonna.  Sorry about the shoes, but I can tell you've already moved on.  On to the next fabulous pair!

  • Angie replied 4 years ago

    I LOVE the crop top with those high wasted pants, Ledonna. Killer combination. Swooshy, yet streamlined. 

  • shedev replied 4 years ago

    That crop top is awesome. It's too bad about the fushia shoes but the lace peeptoes are really cute.

  • Lyn D. replied 4 years ago

    'Hi'- great outfit!

  • Ledonna N. replied 4 years ago

    Jane- it is an oldie but goodie song lol. 

    Skylurker thank you I hope to thrift more. I would even buy them new

    retailgirl- I never thought about that a "just for me" indulgence I need more of those.

    Inge-Wow thank you I will do more neighborhoods when I can with that and murals to me its a good flow

    alaskagirl- We will morn the shoes but still better than a McMeal anytime lol

    rachylou Yes.  they were such a great color.  I am a shorty I need to have Tem to hem them but he is so busy with clients.  lol So I wear heels

    Xtabay yes we have to kick the dust off our feet and move on.  I went from $5 holla to free99 new in the same evening. 

    Angie Thank you alright now a Killer. lol  I do a lot of flow I just love it

    Well hello to you also Lyn D. Thanks for stopping in. 

  • Cerinda replied 4 years ago

    Now I'm longing for fuchsia shoes.  Love your pattern mixing.

  • Firecracker replied 4 years ago

    I love that outfit on you. The way the top and pants coordinate without exactly matching is so appealing, and I like the extreme cropped top over the flowy wide-leg pants. Super flattering and current looking proportions. Too bad about those adorable fuschia booties, but the black sparkly ones are even better!

  • Gigi replied 4 years ago

    Your outfits always make me smile. I enjoy seeing you unabashedly wear what makes you happy!

    I have to say that although the first pair of booties was fun, the black pair looks killer awesome on you.

  • shevia replied 4 years ago

    Too bad about the shoes, but at least they had their moment in the sun. Love the outfit!

  • Sally replied 4 years ago

    Those pants look great on you...a fab style and pattern. Love the pop of pink from the shoes

    Gorgeous top and pants on gorgeous you. Love those happy, bright shoes too!

  • MidwestrnChic replied 4 years ago

    That outfit is a winner!  You look fabulous! Hate to hear the shoes bit the dust as they really make the outfit pop.  Love your style.

  • replied 4 years ago

    A great outfit - fun and flattering.

  • Destri replied 4 years ago

    + 1 for the opinion that the crop top pattern mixed outfit is your best yet! Love, Love.  Yea, and those pink peep toe booties were perfect along with (oh well) . . .

  • Momo replied 4 years ago

    That is some fierce pattern mixing ! I just love the way the top and pants go and awesome silhouette.

  • Kate replied 4 years ago

    Wow Ledonna, you knocked me out with your pattern mixing skills. I love love love that outfit! What great fitting pants, and the short poncho is fab. The pink shoes were icing on the cake.

  • calmwave replied 4 years ago

    Super FABULOUS!

  • Maneera replied 4 years ago

    One of your BEST outfits, Donna. I LOVE it! Too bad those shoes died!!!!!

    Your style is really taking a slightly more flirty, feminine turn while still being very "YOU" and I just love it!

    Wow! I want it too.
