Simply Splendid

For those of you who've been reading the past few weeks, I suspect you already know what this post is about, based just on the title.

A wonderful surprise (I wasn't expecting them until the 10th) was waiting for me when I arrived home from work today. A shiny (okay, brown cardboard) box from Nordstrom. The contents: the Jeffrey Campbell Splendid sandal.

Splendid

I immediately tore open the box and retrieved the sandals. So pretty. I had to put them on. And I suppose this doesn't accurately reflect what I wore today, since I was wearing my bronze wedges all day, but I don't care, these make the outfit better.

I must say I never knew why people referred to these as Woodies, now I do -- it says so inside.

Splendid

Sometimes the autofocus chooses strange places to focus on, but the blur better disguises my pedicure that is long overdue for a refresher.

Such cute shoes! Love the colour of that skirt too! The single hue look could be difficult to carry off, but worth a try I think! Daisy Dayz Home

Your new shoes are just wonderful! I haven't checked out the Nordrstrom's website for a long time now and it seems like a mistake since they have a lot of good stuff there, will have to browse it soon:)
Also, your green skirt is absolutely adorable, lovely color, shape and it looks great on you!

These are on fire!!! Lovin' it!

Romany said...

Hi Lydia!
These are utterly divine. I really need to jump on the sandal bandwagon (the Sandwagon, if you will, hehe). I love how you've tagged all of your images with a pretty signature - what a lovely new feature!
I've been very stressed. We've moved house and there's no internet, tv or heating at the new place (it's winter here), so it's been a bit of a drag haha! But that should all be fixed soon, so I look forward to being more of a presence around here. :)
How are you??

The shoes AND the shoebox are wonderful. Stunning that you made your skirt, too! It looks super professional, and your style is what pulls it all together, which is my favorite part.
