Violette: The one with no shoes

Dress - H&M
Top - H&M
Tights - ???
Necklace - Smart Set
Ribbon used as belt - from another dress

I know some bloggers put up their whole outfit according to the shoes... well, clearly I'm not haha!

Let me explain: we're in Montreal, there's snow, I wear snow boots to get to work... and all my "work" shoes are patiently waiting for me in a box in my office. In winter, I leave my shoes at work. That day, I got home and wanted to take outfit pictures and then... realized I didn't have my shoes with me. Of course, I could have put on any other pair that I have at home, but I wanted to be honest. The outfit posts we're doing at rose&violette are true everyday outfits, not imaginary look-at-me-i'm-so-cool outfits. And I also thought it was funny to be shoe-less!

Don't worry, I won't post outfits without shoes for the whole winter! From now on, I'll bring my shoes home with me.

Oh! In case you were wondering, during the day I was wearing black oxford heels. Use your imagination... there you are... pretty, no?


  1. I love how you layered that! And I think it's smart to leave your shoes at your office!

  2. J'aime bien ce mélange de styles différents. Avec ou sans chaussures, c'est très joli!

  3. Thank you Liz!
    It's smart, yes, but not when you want to take outfit pictures at night! haha

    Merci Lulu, je semble attirée par le mélange des styles ou des textures ces temps-ci!

  4. I am in love with your outfit. It looks so chic! Love the stripes underneath the dress! And your hair is great, too. I wish I had curly hair!

    Also - your story about leaving your shoes at work is the cutest, ever. Very smart!

    Kristine. Or Polly.

  5. Oh you're so sweet Kristine! Thank you.

    You know what? I always wanted to have straight dark hair like yours! haha!

  6. Wonderful layering. I love the sleeves under the sleeveless dress. Looks great.
