If you saw my post last week comparing the Vans slip ons to the Target ones, then you know that I had not worn them long enough to determine how comfortable they were. Well it's update time... The Vans are suuuppperrrrr comfyy!! OH MAN! I wore them for the first time all day without socks for half the day and with them for the end of the day. I didn't get a single blister , and there was virtually no rubbing! Highly recommend!! LOVE Them!

Cut the CROP

Sweater: Old Navy Similar
Blouse: J.Crew Factory This years version
Skinnies: c/o French Connection Similar
OTK Boots: DSW
Bag: Nordstrom Similar
Watch: Michael Kors

I bought this sweater before I realized the whole crop trend was happening, and I was staring at my closet one day, cause thats what usually happens (closet full of clothes with nothing to wear...) and this outfit kinda just came to me! The bottom of the sweater was a little tight when I first put it on, but a few pulls and I was good to go!

Have you tried the crop trend yet??

REVIEW : Vans Perforated Leather Slip Ons VS Target Quilted Slip Ons

I've never been a slip ons girl, but after seeing them on Ingrid a bunch of times, I decided to try them out!

My search began back when the Vans were sold out everywhere.. 
Target was my next stop, after seeing them on a few people on Insatgram

My mom went a few weeks ago when I was working and I asked her to pick them up for me if they had them, as luck would have it, they did! 

When I first tried on the Target pair, I thought they looked odd on my feet, like they were too high almost (even though sneakers are just as high if not higher on the foot...)  but I chalked that up to not being used to seeing myself in slip ons.
For reference, I got a size 8 (I normally wear a 7 or 7.5)  I was not at the store to try them on myself, but I think the 7.5 would have been a little tight. 
NOTE: I tried them on bare foot and with these socks (which I HIGHLY recommend!) they were slightly more comfortable with the socks.

Then I found a website that had the Vans, in my size, and in stock! I ordered 2 sizes, because I was not sure how Vans run. 
NOTE: they run in unisex sizing which is mens sizing- its best to order 1.5 sizes down from your normal women's size.
I ordered both a 5.5 (women's size 7) and a 6 (women's size 7.5) and found that the size 6 fits best. (I was trying to base my decision off of my usual Converse size which is a 5.5 [7 women's], but I find that they run 1/2 smaller than converse- so size up if you've never bought Vans before!)

I tried these shoes on with my favorite socks as well, and found that both shoes seem the same, comfort wise- with socks, but I did notice a difference without socks. 

The target slips ons rub in the back, while the Vans really are pretty comfortable- you can tell by the picture above that the Vans have a more cushioned back, while the Target pair is just an extension of the shoe. Obviously, I have not worn them for an extended amount of time because one pair of shoes is going back.

Over all, I think I will be keeping the Vans and returning the Target slip ons. But if you don't wan to spend the money on this trendy shoe, then I would go with the Target Slip On's

The quality of the Vans seems superior to the Target shoes, and at just over double the price, they better be! The quilted design of the Target slip ons was cute, until I saw the sleek design of the perforated Vans. You really can't even tell its perforated until you're up close to it- thats another thing I was concerned about!

Hope this helped, fi you have any more questions, comment below!

Layered Up

Hi-Lo Sweater: Old Navy
Tank: Target
Skinnies: American Eagle
Booties: Target Similar
Field Jacket: J.Crew
Ring: InPink

That moment when you realize the exposure is turned way to high up on your camera... Sorry guys!

I wore this the other night for dinner and a movie. I way underestimated how cold the 50s are and I was freezing in this outfit! Thank god I had this scarf!
Normally I hate hi-lo things, but this sweater has just the right amount where it looks just right! I love that it's long enough in the back to cover your butt if you want to wear leggings, and short enough in the front if you want to show off whatever your wearing underneath!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
