Back in high school I worked at the Outlets where I lived. I worked for Izod (deep down I must have known I’d end up playing golf when I grew up) and occasionally when they were short staffed they would send me over to the Bass store since we were owned by the same parent company. Most of their shoes were fairly traditional (and still are) but I could always find a cute option or a great canvas sneaker for summer. I think I can make any shoe work. So when I found their classic oxford but in perforated white leather I got excited.
I’ve been thinking about oxfords, a lot. They’ve been on my mind to wear with my wider leg slacks and to possibly pair with a flirty spring dress and a cardigan (I have to see that combo on to see if I can really pull it off). I talked about the super cute silver oxfords I found before but I’m kind of smitten on the traditional oxford with a bit of a twist with the perforated leather.
It’s clean and crisp and the perforated leather screams summer. But I’m not 100% sure. What are your thoughts? Do you love them? Do you hate them? Could you rock them yourself? Let me know!
