A Classier Derivative Of My Uniform & Affinity For Mules

My fancy version of a "uniform" has been jeans + blazer + tee for for a long while now, but only because the combo is truly fool-proof and allows me to do less standing around in front of my closet deciding what to wear.

Some of you might already know my love for blazers because I've worn a variety of them on this blog many, many times. Being a modest dresser makes blazers a real hero of the wardrobe, you guys.

Another one of my "uniforms" would be to substitute the blazer with a denim jacket and swap the mules for sneakers, but having a casual blazer on like I have on here with the more ladylike mules is just the classier derivative, plus it really is appropriate for more occasions.

One thing you should know about me: I really like wearing mules. They offer the breathability of flip flops or slippers to me but since they don't show my toes, I get this idea that they offer extra "modesty".

I'm quite picky about the mules I buy because I find that many of the gorgeous mules in the market are not built for comfort. But when I spotted these white mules, in my exact size, all alone in a sea of other discounted chunkier shoes in Zara last month, I felt in my heart that they were meant for me even before I tried them on.

To top it all off, when I asked if Shah liked them (truthfully expecting him to cringe at them because I thought they were fashionably "ugly" in that cool way that repels men but attracts women), his answer after scrutinizing them was a delightful "I do. They remind me of something Princess Jasmine would wear."

Reminder: I am a huge Disney fan. Clearly, husband knows the way to my heart.

I knew my brain made the right decision right there and then: my Jasmine slippers were indeed meant to be.

  1. Those white woven mules are special and really elevate the outfit but I also think that intricate box bag is rivaling the shoes nicely.
    It's going to take a long time for me to appreciate an ankle length, wide leg pant/jean. To my eye the proportion is off. It subtracts length and the slimming profile of a standard long hemline. I'm just not a fan.

    1. Thank you, Judy! I really do think the mules are quite something, I'm glad someone else thinks so too =)

      The weird thing is, I used to dislike the crop flare/wide-legged pants myself. I used to think flare/wide-legged pants only work when their length is all the way down BELOW the ankle area, and should be worn with shoes that add height. After some time I decided to experiment with one crop pair and ended up loving it. These particular pair of jeans is actually one of my firm favourites, which I've worn a few times on this blog.

      That being said, I completely understand why you're not on board with the crop-wide-leg trend though. It's not for everyone, but thankfully there are so many jeans styles to choose from - I also love crop straight jeans, but the normal-length straight jeans will forever be a classic, I'm sure!
