Zara Lace-up Shoes and a Lovely Night Out in Soho




 throw on a blazer and a cute brimmed hat and viola, I will have another effortless casually chic look

Last week I wrote about the black suede lace-up shoes I picked up at Zara in this post, and here I am sporting these gorgeous kicks. As I said last week these shoes are super comfortable and easy to walk around in for a relatively long time. I wore them to NYFW to a number of shows, and here I wore them to go out to dinner with a couple of fellow bloggers; Alex of Letters From The City and Renta of Purse Fixation. You can dress them up and were them with a skirt or dress or some trousers, or you could pair them with jeans and a tee. Here I wore them with a top I picked up on sale at COS, H&M’s higher end sister store and the yellow bag I picked up at Steve Madden last summer. A perfect look for a casual evening out in Soho, don’t you think? Next time I may try them with a tee instead, then I’ll throw on a blazer and a cute brimmed hat and viola, I will have another effortless casually chic look. Right?

  22. The shoes look great and I like that they have heels. Such a nice outfit! I have a pair of lace-ups from Zara too (though not with heels), and I wear them all the time in Dubai, but in Copenhagen, it’s too cold for anything else than big boots these days:)

  23. Love the cross body and the lace ups. Great pair up!


  24. Hello Allie, you look so chic, those shoes are a must! Perfect outfit.
