Dress: Mng Mango.  Love the Asos quilt one or the faux leather version. Shirt: JBrand.  Monk shoes: Kurt Geiger. Similars from Rachel Zoe or  Jeffrey Campbell (Shopbop code: INTHEFAMILY25 for 25% off today only). Bag: Salvation Army.  Here’s a good splurge version (same sale code applies). Hat: H&M. Similar from Eugenia Kim (Shopbop code: INTHEFAMILY25 for 25% off today only).
No surprise that I found double strap monk shoes (remember this post about them?).  I instagrammed these two tone ones a few weeks back after my lower jaw dislocated and hit the ground when I clocked eyes on them.  I still have the brown star studded ones from a vintage shop so two very different pairs. 
I wore a shift dress over a basic shirt and my teddy-like leopard bag which I picked up around 2009.  It was also love at first sight.  I saw it across the floor of a Salvation Army (Oxfam) and it’s still one of my favourites.  Love how I get the biggest thrills from the least expensive things. 
Trivia:  The shoes bear the same name as one of my favourite TV programs which by the way is turning into a film possibly?  #lovealice

    What a coincidence! I wore the near exact same outfit as you today except my collared shirt was sleeveless! 😀

    Pretty sure I need a pair of black and white shoes. Yep

    • Karen says:

      I doubt many have them in their wardrobe. Take a look down the street every day and you probably don’t see anyone in a pair of two toned shoes. You’ll love them if you take the plunge.

      Thx I’ve had them for about a year. Maybe longer! always loved em.

    • Karen says:

      Thx but it’s really easy to do: a white shirt with a collar peaking ‘schoolifies’ so many dresses : )

    • Karen says:

      Thx Maggie! I stalked them for weeks.

    Your style is pretty much everything I love. Plus you project a totally cool and accessible persona. I can almost hear your voice through out. 🙂 Your photos are fabulous too, and take your impeccable styling to the next level. I’m taking notes and I appreciate you!!
