When I first saw the lace-up shoe trend, I wasn't entirely sure how I felt about it.  I thought the laces of the shoe would make it hard to style and possible uncomfortable, so when I decided to give in and embrace the trend, I set out on a search to find one at a lower price point.  This red pair from Topshop fit the bill perfectly so perfectly, I'm tempted to get them in another color.  The velvet pair I linked above would be so perfect for the Holidays!  I will say that they do run pretty small, which I think is due to the pointed toe.  I'm normally a size 10-11 depending on style, and I went for a 10.5 in these, which are unusually tight.  I recommend sizing up a whole size to size and a half.

So, its no secret that I have a serious love for leopard and I'm a little ashamed to tell y'all that I  looked at similar leopard calf hair clutches for probably about two years before I found this one.  I would put them into my shopping cart and let them sit there for days trying to convince myself that I just had to have it, and every time they would put one on sale, I would show it to Kyle and give him those puppy dog eyes to try and convince him that it was definitely worth the money.  He definitely disagreed, but then I found this clutch from Madly Yours and purchased it almost immediately.  I was like a little kid waiting at Christmas waiting for it to come in the mail, and it definitely did not disappoint!  It's great quality and is the perfect clutch for date night or grabbing lunch with your bestie!  

Today I'm off to bible study in some unseasonably warm weather, and I'm fully embracing the fact that I don't have to wear a parka just yet!  I hope this weather lasts just a little bit longer so we can get out and continue to explore!
