Every fall I think back-to-school, which leads to thoughts of backpacks, oxfords and plaid. I’ve always had an obsession with oxfords, and just last week I treated myself to these flats from Marais USA. They were just too damn cute when I tried them on, but I was hesitant because they’re white canvas. I live in New York (dirty), and I’m so clumsy (fact). With some peer pressure from friends and others in the store, I decided to celebrate payday with a purchase. Luckily, Marais is affordable; $85 for a nice pair of shoes. Interesting to note, Urban Outfitters is selling the same flats, but for $98.
By the way, how do you feel about backpacks on grown ups? I’m ok with it. In fact, I think they can be pretty great.
