Guest Lookbook: Cupcakes and Cashmere

I fell in love with Emily’s blog the first time I visited it and every time she posts her outfits I always think “oh! I need that!” or “I love how she put that together!” so I had to ask her to do a guest lookbook and was so happy when she said yes! Emily, you are always such a doll, thank you!

I’m Emily, from Cupcakes and Cashmere, and I was beyond thrilled when Tiffany invited me to write a guest post on I am Style-ish while she’s away. Since we’re all familiar with Tiffany’s love of fantastic shoes, I decided to plan an outfit around my new Derek Lam mary janes that I got for 60% off at the Barneys Warehouse sale. I immediately fell for the subtle studs, delicate tie and deep forest green and after slipping them on, I was sold.

What I’m wearing:
Coat: Zara
Dress: Martin + Osa
Belt: Forever 21
Shoes: Derek Lam

I’m not huge on coordinating when it comes to my outfits but my coat’s bright color helped bring out the deep green in my shoes.

It’s tough to find high heels that are comfortable, but I’ve found that the trick is to make sure there’s a platform in front. These have just enough lift and I feel amazingly supported, thanks to the tie on top.
