I wanted an easy and comfortable look for an afternoon of lunch and shopping at the mall. I was on a mission for the perfect birthday gift for my mom, so I chose ultra comfy and very happening Prada suede high-top sneakers in black. It was a maiden voyage for these, so the Mall at Short Hills was a perfect destination. I knew I would be doing a fair share of power walking and these shoes did not disappoint. Nor did I feel like I sacrificed looks for comfort in the footwear department!
My dress is a short sleeve shift in a simple black and white houndstooth. It is very light for a summer day and was a great deal on Gilt.com, which is a site where I love to shop. The dress is made by The Letter, and has a great little surprise detail of leather piping at the collar to add interest. For a show of color, I added my Gucci head wrap in fuchsia. It was purchased at the online summer sale at Bergdorf Goodman.com. If you haven’t taken a look, you might want to.
To accessorize, I added my Hermes enamel H bracelets. While leaving the mall, I visited a new (to me) make up counter in the location of my usual make up counter. I decided to give the Tom Ford products a try. The day was a success, gifts in hand and a fresh looking face, my work was done.
