    WHAT! You killed it with that blanket scarf (in a good way). I always get stuck when trying to style mine. I just came from the Hello Monday link-up
    You should come link up over at my style & beauty link up! The Style Files Link-Up

      Hi Kelsey! These are actually a few years old–I got them from Aldo. They aren’t available anymore, but I did see some similar styles on there as well as Sole Society!

        Oops–those are Ralph Lauren. I thought you meant a different pair. But they are also old! Sorry about that!

      Hi Ally! That one is actually brown, but the photo does make it look a little green! It’s by Vince Camuto and here is the link (brown is sold out): http://rstyle.me/n/b8wbirbexsf (just copy/paste into your browser). Hope this helps!
