shoe shopping with kathleen kelly, skipper, and me
Meg Ryan wearing the greatest outfit ever, with Tom Hanks and Nora Ephron
Even though the weather was pretty warm here in the Ocean State today, there are signs that fall is on its way. School has started, good sleeping weather is back, and I'm just beginning to think about packing away my flip-flops. Why the above photo from You've Got Mail? Well, Meg Ryan's wardrobe in this film probably comes to mind with almost every clothing purchase I make. Would Kathleen Kelly wear this? I swoon over the soft cardigans and simple flats.
Being just-shy of 5'8" and a slave to comfort, I have always worn flats. Before there was Kathleen Kelly, there was Skipper. Barbie's little sister is looking quite proper in this pose but I assure you, Skipper has some pretty groovy ensembles: short, flowery dresses paired with crocheted tights and bright flats. (That was more of my look in my 20s.)
Now for some You've Got Skipper-inspired browser-browsing for shoes ...
Some fabulous flats from j.jill
Leave it to good ol' Target to sell similar styles for a fraction of the price.
Also from Target, these are the ultimate Skipper shoes. Although a little bright for my mostly muted wardrobe. Would Kathleen Kelly wear them?
Have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!
