Straight Ambition.

Despite the Kansas-City-in-June humidity, I was determined to wear my hair straight for a night out to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Thankfully, my dryer + flat iron came through (anti-humidity hair spray helped a bit) and I was able to achieve Operation Straight Ambition.

I relied on an old favorite outfit combo: girly top + tough footwear. This time it was a sheer striped peplum blouse with a peter pan collar, silk trouser shorts, and a pair of too-cool-for-school boots from ShoeMint. It makes for an unexpected combination, no?

I’m newly-obsessed with ShoeMint. Being the shoe horse I am, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long. Quality shoes, nice price point, and right on-trend.
