Fashionable Friday: j.crew, Old Navy, and leather-free boat shoes!

The funny thing about teaching (well, ONE of the funny things about teaching) is that you have the time to travel but not any money. My spring break this year (still three weeks away and won't involve any exotic getaways, but that doesn't mean I can't dress for it, right?

I've lost 3 lbs in the last week (you read that right. 3.) and I'm so proud of myself that it might as well be 30. Losing weight while teaching is nearly impossible. I'm proud of myself that I've decided to prioritize my health and have been going to the gym even when I absolutely don't feel like it.

However, I still wish I looked like this...
Does this come in a "makes my A cup look like a C?" Didn't think so.
j. crew Ashbury floral top and bottoms, $48.00 each
...but I'm pretty sure you'd have to change my DNA, which apparently is a service that the local YMCA doesn't provide. Rude.

How amazing are these earring that I found on sale there as well? To. Die. For.

Sunburst Earrings $29.99

This was the first picture under their "weekend" wear. I totally look like this on the weekends. Just add some glasses, adult acne, and swap the entire outfit for non matching sweats and we're in business!
Unfortunately, those amazing leopard flats are calf-hair, which means this preppy vegan won't be wearing them. It did inspire me to set out on a search for some fun, spring-y shoes, though. Here's what I found at Old Navy:

Yellow and flat and non-leather? Oh my.
Old Navy Yellow Ballet Flats, $22.94
Looking for some non-leather boat shoes? Old Navy's the place!
Boat Shoes, $29.94
Happy shopping!


  1. Yes! And I also bought navy blue non-leather penny loafers at ON (they also have mustard) Which resolved many fruitless web searches..thanks for sharing!

  2. I love the shoes! Thanks for the tip!

  3. @redhoney76 Mustard? I'm there! Old Navy is a gold mine for flats/cute non leather stuff.

  4. @V. Yay! Thanks for reading! We vegans have to stick together if we don't want to end up wearing some sort of Earth Mama sandals.


I'd love to hear your thoughts !
