3 ways to wear oxfords


Sara, from Sara Logan Photography, and I have been working on a few fun projects together lately.  (She's amazing!! Be sure to like her FB page for beautiful pictures and other fun things.) When we met in downtown Apex to work on this one, Sara said, "I have those shoes! but never know what to wear with them!"  I bought these oxfords for myself for Valentine's Day, and here are 3 of my favorite ways to wear them.

Oxfords: TJMaxx (but exact pair here), Sweater: Old Navy (exact), Let me know if you want to know where anything else is from!

^Don't let the color of the oxfords dictate what color your outfit should be.  The outfit doesn't have to "match" your shoes, just compliment them!


^Oxfords with a skirt is a nice spin-off of a regular pair of flats with a skirt.


^I snatched this turtleneck off the Target Clearance rack for $2, and knew that I would get so much wear out of it.  (I was right!), and think that the oxfords make a classic outfit a little snazzier.

Sara was SO much fun to work with.  She gave me great ideas, was willing to try anything and everything, and made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera.  If you are in the Raleigh area (or anywhere in NC), be sure to book her for your next family, maternity, newborn, headshot, anything(!) session.  You'll be so glad you did.  

Hope you're having a wonderful day!!

This is great! I am always looking for ways to style oxfords and then I can't come up with anything, so i end up passing them on. I'm pinning these looks for the next pair! :)

Sarah said...

I have oxfords I picked up from Bass a few years ago and I love them! They are so, so comfy. I want a different colored pair as well. You rocked yours, as always ;)

This makes me want to break my oxfords out, and perhaps even purchase the metallic ones I've had my eye in for awhile! Loving that $2 turtleneck, too. Score!

Rachel said...

I really like the oxford style in general. I just bought a pair, but I haven't worn them much because I didn't want to ruin them in the snow! Pretty soon I'll be able to wear them without fear!

Nicole | Pharr Away said...

These shoes are just perfect and I love what you did with them in all three outfits. Like Sara, I would NOT have known what to do with them...but now I want some :)!

As soon as I saw the first photo I thought, "man, whoever is doing her photos is getting better and better", lol! Sara did an amazing job taking this shots and I'm too thrilled about it b/c I'm local! Heading to her site now!!!
