current obsession: mouse espadrille

{Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Mouse' Espadrille Flat:}

I'm heading to the Bahamas next month and ordered myself two pairs of espadrilles.  How bummed was I then when I came across these?  Why am I even looking at more espadrilles?  The only problem is that I'm petite and I'm not sure if I can pull off the ankle strap, but if one of those pairs don't fit, I'll be ordering these to find out.

stripes + polkadots / black + white

{denim shirt: Marc by Marc Jacobs (sold out, but love this one from J.Crew); sweater: RW&Co. (old); jeans: Paige; denim jacket: J Brand; booties: Michael Michael Kors (old); watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs (old);
bracelet: BCBGMAXAZRIA (in store, recent), sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs (old)}

I love mixing and matching.  Stripes and polkadots... stripes and florals... polkadots and leopard print.  Even polkadots and polkadots.  A great denim shirt helps pull the look together.  I've been living in this Marc by Marc Jacobs one.  It flares out a bit so it also looks great with dark skinny jeans for a denim on denim look.  (Another look I love.)  Oh, and of course the big and white.

rain, rain, DON'T go away!

{rain boots: Marc by Marc Jacobs (old, but LOVE these bright, logo-embossed ones);
'toothpick' jeans: J.Crew; umbrella: Coach (old)}

Another warm day earlier this week (in January!), although it was raining.  I never used to like it when it rained (for obvious reasons), until I bought these rain boots.  I actually get excited now because I get to wear them.  As soon as I saw them, I had to have them.  Usually the way it is for me when I spot something by Marc Jacobs.  I can almost always tell something is Marc by Marc Jacobs just by looking at it.  It's a fun game I play with my husband when we're shopping.  (A game that I'm not sure he actually participates in.)  It's the fun details that draw me in.  I mean, these rain boots look like they have laces!
