Naya Shoes Challenge, Day 5: Nouveau Victorian


Between the gorgeous vintage photos I have of my great-grandmother and her sisters, to the totally captivating characters (and costumes!) on Downton Abby on PBS, I know I’m not the only one having a Victorian moment. The tailoring, the long skirts, and the lacy undergarments; what’s not to love?

I dressed up my Naya Lark booties here with a long skirt I’ve had for almost a decade, and a Pilcro and the Letterpress t-shirt. The black and white hearts sweater comes from a the adorable London shop, Appletree Boutique and the woven belt is a vintage find.

The sisters of Downton Abbey.
