Crazy open-toe booties: Baby Phat
Cardi, necklace: Vintage via the Getup
Maybe this is one of those stories that doesn't really make sense when you tell it to someone else, but I partly chose these weird shoes because, in my sluggish, early-morning state, the mnemonic quality of Baby Phat sounded pleasantly like Baby Cat, which is what MC calls me as he coaxes me out of bed for work in the morning with far more sweetness and patience than I deserve. As an INTENSE insomniac, who eventually and after much difficulty enters a deep, deep state of hyper-sleep, only for it to be wake-up time 4 hours later, I have spent most of my child and adult life coasting on my hyperactivity during the day, even after getting less than half of a recommended night's sleep. But as you can imagine, with the wedding coming up in just 11 days, my inability to settle down and sleep at night is reaching a high point.
