Last week, MLovesM creator Mara Ferreira gave us a major case of fashion envy. Why? The brunette blogger and new mama paired our blue suede Whitney pump with a ladylike bag and the most romantic floral blouse that we have every seen.
Mara matched true blue denim with the Whitney pump to create the illusion of mile-long legs, and the shoe’s 2.5-inch block heel still makes running after baby Augustine a breeze. This pump has a classic office-to-cocktails silhouette and is a brilliant contrast to casual weekend looks. You could, in fact, take this shoe–and a feminine blouse such as Mara’s–straight from work to dinner. Pair the blouse with a pencil skirt during the workday. Then, swap the skirt for a straight-leg jean for dinner out with the girls.
Here at Naturalizer HQ, we still need a jacket when we step outside each morning so we can’t help but feel envious of Mara’s breezy style in her hometown of Los Angeles, where spring practically lasts forever. An olive green military jacket provides warmth and casual-cool appeal, while our leather CityX cross-body bag looks chic without overpowering the outfit. After you’ve admired Mara’s pics, check out our twist on her ensemble below.
