Knit Maxi





Old Navy dress and socks // Ann Taylor top // Cuff c/o Oasap // Simply Vera necklace// Vintage belt // Aldo shoes

I was really disappointed because I ordered these shoes online a while ago but they were unfortunately too big. (Those tricky European sizes...) But I found that I can wear them with chunky socks and they kind of give off the impression of ankle boots! Anyone have any other tricks to make shoes fit better? Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!

xoxo, Elly

  1. Love it! And it looks so great with the top and honestly thought you were wearing ankle boots :) that's a good idea, hope you find another way though and you'll have 2 pairs of shoes of the same ones :D

  8. Gorgeous dress!

    Well, you have these silicone cushions that are sticky and you place them where you shoe is big (below your toes or your feet). You can try them out, they helped me :) http://www.drscholls.com/drscholls/productSearch.do?method=doProductDetailsLookup&searchArg=5

  22. I so had to do a double take on your shoes! Great idea on getting them to fit and look like a completely different style I would have never known that you had socks on with them.

  38. Hahaha, unfortunately my trick to fit big shoes is exactly like yours- big, fluffy socks :D That's the only thing stopping me from buying shoes online. With a piece of clothing is easier, you can put a belt around it to make it fit, or wear it over-sized, it's all good, but shooooooes.... Streets in our country are like sandpaper, you can't walk 5 steps without falling into a hole, so comfy shoes are a must so I won't look like a duck trying to keep balance :D
    Wonderful outfit, I especially love how you combined it with the studded bracelet ! ^_^

  44. Such a bummer that the shoes are a bit big - the socks are a good trick though! I also try putting shoe inserts in the front to move my foot back toward the heel a bit.

    Love that you layered a tank top over the dress - it helps break it up. Lovely!

  45. This outfit is awesome! Oh and I didn't even realize that those shoes weren't ankle boots until I read what you had written. It looks awesome, love the socks too!

  61. I love this combo, what a wonderful outfit! I use little heel insoles on the backs of my shoes that are too large. Sometimes they help a bit.
