I spotted these shoes yesterday, and quick like a bunny I ran to try them on. They’re just so loud, but I can’t help but love them. Aren’t they weirdly great? I bought a pair, and today I had a little fun virtual-window-shopping for what I’d pair with them.
I’m planning to pair them with solid skirts and striped tops too, or with my striped dresses. Basically, I still can’t get enough of the stripes and florals combo.
p.s. The shoes are available as flats, too.

Those shoes are amazing! I had a pair of ‘crazy’ floral flats – ok, they might have actually had a Hawaiian pattern of sorts on them – back in high school. This was the 80s so aka, the olden times. I looooved them and was so sad when they wore out! I think I might need to check out the Loft ones… :)

Ha, I misread your line about the 80s as “the golden times,” which I actually quite liked!
mimiJanuary 11, 2013 at 6:47 pm
love the shoes!!! and the sweater and skirt too….. I REALLY miss the monthly style posts…..
Making it LovelyJanuary 11, 2013 at 8:26 pm
That’s good to know. I realized today that I hadn’t put one up in a while! They’re fun to put together, but they do take a little while to make. I’m glad to hear that they’re appreciated.

I agree! I know this is a blog about home design, but I LOVE the fashion posts. You take awesome trends and break them down in a way that’s easy to replicate and pull off.

When something really smiles at you, that’s the time to buy it. Plus, you need content for your blog. If you wait and waffle about it, it’s usually gone. Ann

That is the easiest way to justify something. Oh, you know, I need content for the blog… Guess I just HAVE to buy these awesome crazy shoes that I want. Twist my arm.
And my grandma always used to say “if you want something and you can afford it, buy it. If you wait, it will be gone.” Grandma and the blog are total enablers.

Love! I think the louder the better. With those floral shoes you are on your way to sequins!
Making it LovelyJanuary 11, 2013 at 8:27 pm
I have my sequin dress hanging in my closet! It’s not the one I linked to in my earlier post. I did order that one, and it was nice, but then I saw the one I have now in a store window. I tried it on, and it was perfect. Super fun, with a chevron pattern. Two weeks ’till its debut!
shirleyJanuary 11, 2013 at 10:22 pm
Nice heels :), i should concider this. Oh btw, whats that skirt from? :)

I have a few pairs of floral shoes and I LOVE them all too!!!
So I understand you :)
CarolineJanuary 12, 2013 at 5:33 am
I love the style posts too Nicole. I find myself linking back to them in head when I’m shopping…..
A thought – would you consider doing a wedding style post?
Making it LovelyJanuary 14, 2013 at 10:26 am
Weddings are fun to think about, but I don’t have any plans to do a wedding style post.
TaraJanuary 12, 2013 at 7:08 am
Love this! I haven’t but shoes from the AT Loft in ages but these are adorable!!
TeriJanuary 12, 2013 at 2:11 pm
Love, love, love this whole outfit! If only the skirt had vertical stripes! :) The style posts are my favorite, by far! I keep thinking about the sequins…. I actually wore a sequin sweater on New Year’s, in your honor!
Making it LovelyJanuary 14, 2013 at 10:27 am
Yes! I’m glad to hear that.
Miss B.January 12, 2013 at 2:16 pm
Like a Liberty print for your feet, for Spring like, I can see you wearing these:)
KellieJanuary 12, 2013 at 4:37 pm
I love the style posts, too! They’re so fun!
SaraJanuary 12, 2013 at 7:14 pm
I also love the style posts. As someone who has a tough time putting outfits together I really appreciate your helpful guidance.
miss kateJanuary 12, 2013 at 7:27 pm
i ADORE this. one thing missing from my wardrobe is baby pink. I usually like punchier colors. but this is a really great combo! BTW – tried on that skirt at BR – much cuter on the model than on me!
Making it LovelyJanuary 14, 2013 at 10:34 am
Yeah, the skirt looks like it could be really cute… or really wrong. I haven’t tried it on yet, myself.
DanielleJanuary 12, 2013 at 9:25 pm
Love the shoes! How do you make these awesome virtual pinboards?
Making it LovelyJanuary 14, 2013 at 10:32 am
I use Photoshop. Here’s an old post wherein I showed the process.
RebeccaNYCJanuary 13, 2013 at 8:28 am
I too, had a pair of floral pumps, very much like yours, in “the golden age” of the 80’s. (only, I was not in high school, alas) Only they were more gold colored in a heavy brocade fabric. Fabulous.
BraidhairJanuary 13, 2013 at 8:57 am
Floral shoes might look great with bright plain skirts and very little or couple of flowers on tops..if you plan to pair them.

CatherineJanuary 13, 2013 at 9:45 am
Love those shoes! I’m a fan of pink shoes, and to me, those are almost a neutral. They have flats, too, and you could wear them with jeans and black pants. I love Loft’s shoes and will often buy the same style in different colors. They are so comfy. And I had a pair of floral Keds (or an off brand) when I was in middle school, too.
valJanuary 13, 2013 at 10:22 am
So clever to pair that striped skirt with those shoes. Most people reaction would be to go completely solid all over to off-set the crazy pattern. But I like the stripes! They’re bold AND simple enough to live in harmony with the pumps.
KristinaJanuary 13, 2013 at 10:34 am
I love this look, that skirt + sweater combo is really cute.
JodyJanuary 14, 2013 at 7:10 am
Love the floral shoes! I need a pair with a 2 inch heel though….
dchickJanuary 14, 2013 at 8:34 am
I noticed some of the links are rstyle.me links. Shouldn’t there be some type of disclaimer within the post?
Making it LovelyJanuary 14, 2013 at 9:20 am
There’s a disclaimer on the site itself, in the sidebar.
Brittany LaurenJanuary 14, 2013 at 9:28 am
Those pumps would be so cute as flats! I wish I could wear pumps but it only takes me an hour before I throw them off :) At first I thought those bobbi sets were bangles. Hope you keep making more style posts!
Making it LovelyJanuary 14, 2013 at 10:37 am
They do come as flats, too!
Laura GaskillJanuary 16, 2013 at 8:43 am
Eep! This might be my favorite style post to date. I can’t quite muster the confidence to do florals-and-stripes on a large scale, but crazy floral shoes + a striped skirt? I think I can manage that!

These are the kind of shoes that will make you stand out in a crowd. A fun way to express your sense of style is to wear floral shoes to match the outfit you are wearing. Along with the shoes, I would be interested in wearing the Tippi Sweater in Classic Pink, the cute skirt and carrying the Transport Tote.
NikkiJanuary 29, 2013 at 9:11 pm
I first admired the Transport Tote when I asked a girl on the street in BKLYN where to buy it. I then coveted it for 6 months before I finally couldn’t take it anymore! It’s the perfect anywhere, anything bag. I’m a canvas tote horder usually, but canvas doesnt always fit the dress code. This tote works every event and needs of this mom and unlike a canvas bag, patina is only going make it look better.
