Derby shoes


I always wear high heels but have recently seen many derby shoes on fashion  magazines. 
They had been matched to skirts and created beautiful outfits.
I decided for  trying.

Max Mara

I found this pair and immediately decided they had to be mine ... 


I matched them to my  asymmetric  skirt and a blue sweater with bows for a modern look.


In my opinion my modern look needed a contrasting background ...  So I chose an old and tiny shop where they sell antique pictures.
Taking photos for the blog is a notable matter, after all!! 
:-)


No necklace today but a silk scarf


( I found the old shop so cute and took many photos of it )


I didn't wear a necklace because I had chosen very big earrings. 
By the way ... these ones are a present that I gave to  myself. The reason? 
I felt happy!  Isn't it the best reason for a gift??
( I always have a good reason...sometimes I surprise by myself!  )


My other jewelry and dark red nail polish


here I am with my grey coat and Armani bag.

Tempereatures are rising here...is Spring ( at last ) behind the corner?? 
Let's hope ...

  1. Your lovely sweater with lacing goes well with the skirt and the shoes look great, but then you have fab legs! Liking the tights also. Isn't it wonderful to get a whiff of spring in the air. xx

  5. I think this look is so modern---funny, because that's what I did on my recent blog post!! It's hard to get out of the habit of skirts & heels, but it's very functional too!!
    The earrings are beautiful, Dan---just like you!

    1. You are a swet girl, Jodie!

      Flat shoes seem to go nicely with long skirts at least as high-heeled ones but, I have to get used to the different look on me!

  6. I think you can make everything stylish! But these shoes are fantastic and the way you styled them is fabulous!

  7. This is a great look. One that I wouldn't dare. Yet.. usually you show me the way and then I follow. But it could be that these shoes look better on you than on me. I have very flat feet.
    The skirt and sweater are lovely too. I like the outfit best without the scarf. The earrings get more emphasis then. I really laughed when I read your comment on buying jewelley for yourself haha.

    1. Yes, what works on someone doesn't, on someone else...besides, the style we choose has much to do with our personality and place where we live.

      I spend a lot of money in shopping but then I say to myself:"why not?" There are god reasons in favour as well as against it...I often prefer the first ones!

  13. Dan, I really like these lace up brogues on you and they do work perfectly with your interesting skirt and knit. The earrings are lovely , no wonder they just had to be yours.The shop behind makes a great back drop and looks very interesting. Hopw Spring is on its way for you.

  14. Fingers crossed and hoping for spring. It's a long way off here in London Dan. I really like the new Brogue (as we call them here) trend. I'm very short, so they are not for me. They look great on you though x Come link up x

  16. A good idea to wear Derby shoes with your classy outfit! It is a very modern look. I love the bot details at your sweater and your gorgeous ear candy as well.

    1. It's surprising how simply changing the accessories, you can look differently!

  17. I'm a huge fan of Oxfords too and I love how you've styled these Dan. I like how you've matched the colours of your shoes with your sweater and also think the trim on the sweater makes it quite unusual. How lucky you are to be having mild weather.
