Art to Stand On

The past few weeks with a newborn have been a bit of a snooze, sartorially speaking. Luckily I have a cute baby to distract from what I’m wearing, but I’ve been rotating through the same few pairs of pants (these were fantastic until near the end of my pregnancy, and now they’re great again post-baby) and mostly rocking the early nursing days standard of a tank and cardigan. It works, but it’s nice to have a fun new pair of shoes from BucketFeet to switch things up a bit!

Cute Shoes from BucketFeet

The patterns on each of their shoes are designed by artists (painters, graffiti artists, writers, illustrators, tattoo artists, and so on) from all over the world, bringing a little wearable art to your wardrobe. Eleanor is learning how to tie her shoes, so we picked out a lace up pair for her, too.

BucketFeet was launched in 2011 by two strangers who met by chance in Argentina while backpacking. The artists that they collaborate with are based all over the world, but my shoes were designed by Erin Burke, a graphic designer based right here in Chicago! Such a cool connection. Now they have just launched dozens of new styles for the season including mid tops, and brand new holiday low top styles. You can see some of my favorites, below.

Style: October ’14

I’m not pregnant anymore! Hooray, no more maternity clothes! Well, not quite. I’m at that in-between stage where some of my old clothes fit, but I’ll still be in maternity pants for a while. None of my shoes fit either; fingers crossed, my feet will shrink back down a third time. But hey, at least my wedding ring fits again!

The most exciting addition to my wardrobe lately has been a pair of pants that are slightly dressier than pajama bottoms, so the outfit below is a totally impractical wish list kind of deal. How gorgeous is that pink pleated skirt? And those perfect fall shoes! (The two most expensive items, of course. Maybe I’ll just treat myself to the lipstick and call it good.)

Style: Fall ’14

Some seasons feature palettes and silhouettes that I’m not crazy about, and I find myself not being drawn to any of it. The fall stuff that’s making its way to stores now though? So good! The prettiest colors, super-flattering cuts, and plenty of pieces that are feminine without being fussy.

Style: Fall '14

  1. Faraway Necklace, Madewell
    I bought this and the barrette (#7). I’m pretty over all of my old maternity wear by this point (one more month to go!), but the necklace updates my outfits a bit.

  2. Mle Hagen — Undertaker Hat Blanc, Bona Drag
    I wish I was a hat person! I feel like it’s too ‘look’ much on me — a hat and glasses, without long hair to soften the effect. Brandon wears them regularly, but I know that if I bought one, I’d probably wear it twice and then it would just sit in my closet.

  3. Anna Sheffield Rings, Bona Drag
    I’m linking to where I first found the rings above, but if you’re looking for an engagement (or otherwise really special) ring, it’s worth looking directly at the designer’s site too.

  4. Sleeveless Drapey Top, J. Crew
    I wouldn’t have thought much of this if I’d only seen it online, but in the store I fell hard for them in all the different colors. Besides that lilac, “dusty pomegranate” was especially pretty.

  5. Box-Pleat Dress, Zara
    I’d wear this with the hat and necklace.

  6. Louise Bag, Claire V.
    A perfect size, with a luxe mix of materials.

  7. Wide Metallic Barrette, J. Crew
    My hair is growing so quickly right now (thanks, pregnancy and prenatal vitamins!), so I’ve been pinning it back. This barrette is huge, but I quite like having a giant gold bar in my hair.

  8. Graciela D’Orsay Shoes, Anthropologie
    Flats because they’re easy to wear, these because they’re lovely.

  9. Twin Pearl Stud Earrings, Gem
    Ladylike with a little twist.

  10. Fidji ‘L456’ Shoes, Nora’s Shoe Shop
    Excellent summer to fall shoes, and they’d be great when spring comes back around too. These would look good with skirts or with cropped pants, and that heel height is so walkable.

  11. Dolman V-Neck Sweater, Talbot’s
    I saw this in the store window, and it’s perfectly drapey and in the best shade of pink. I’ve had a few sweaters with this same cut over the years, and it’s my favorite — always so flattering, and great with a pencil skirt.

  12. Ivory Box-Pleat Skirt, Banana Republic
    Subtle pleats for the win.
