strap happy

happy fri-yay! as we finish off the last few blessed weekends of summer and step into fall, meet this seasons new it shoe silhouette, the strappy mary jane. (see what I did there?) while mary janes might remind you of childhood church and/or back to school uniforms, these ladylike styles are an updated, more structured version of last year’s popular lace up flats. they’re perfect for work with some J.Crew martie pants and a pullover sweater, or to jazz up an old favorite dress for an easy date look. check out this cp rocking a serious pair at paris fashion week…
