Statement sleeves are a trend that I think will be around for a few more seasons, and I was instantly obsessed when I found this polka-dot blouse at BR Factory. I thought the billowy sleeves on this blouse were so much fun, and once I realized that I only had a polka-dot tee in my wardrobe (stripes + florals had taken over the last few years), I knew it had to go home with me.
I can’t wait to wear it with white or red pants, but in the meantime, I paired them with my favorite distressed girlfriend jeans (also from BR Factory). Because the blouse is a little bit dressier, I knew the distressing in the denim would ground it a bit and make it an easy look for daytime. A simple layering necklace (also from BR Factory-I promise this isn’t sponsored, I just like their clothes haha!), and a bright pair of heels and I was good to go.
But let me tell you about these heels. They are gorgeous. The color is the perfect shade of yellow, they’re pointy toe so they help elongate the leg, and it’s a kitten heel, so in theory, I should be able to walk in these all day long, right? WRONG. COM-PLETELY-WRONG. THESE ARE THE MOST UNCOMFORTABLE SHOES I HAVE EVER OWNED IN MY LIFE.
As soon as I put them on, my feet scream WHY?! but they are so damn cute and can completely change the way an outfit looks so I can’t bare to part with them. I’ve owned these shoes for at least 6 years and have worn them maybe 4 times because they hurt so bad but I still do it. I relegate them to days when I know that I’ll be doing a lot of sitting so that it won’t do so much damage. But why do we do this? Why do we forsake comfort for extreme pain when it comes to shoes? Lol, it’s so silly but I also find it a little enduring that even the most sensible woman will sometimes look past it for the sake of a “lewk”.
Fashion is pain, my friends.
