Kimba Likes Style it Project with Kimba Likes and The Illusive Femme

Oh, how I love Style it Project! Emma from The Illusive Femme and I have been maxing out on maxi dresses for Style it Project January (which kinda rolled into February too).

Now it’s time to introduce you to our key style for Style it Project March.

We have selected a pair of lace up flats (also known as gillie flats) for Style it Project March.  This style is based on the traditional ghillie or gillie shoes – soft leather lace up shoes worn for Irish, Scottish and Highland dancing which lace up across the foot and are tied around the ankle.

Our hero piece is the Tiffy Lace Up Flats from Target.  They’re $35, leather lined and are available in sizes 6 to 11.  In classic black or chic snakeskin print.

You can join in the styling fun with a similar pair.  Check out some more gillie flats I found for you.

Have you played along with me for Style it Project before?  Here’s a little run down.  We choose a piece, invite you to buy it, style it, wear it, snap it and share it!

The pieces are affordable and work back with existing wardrobe pieces.  We choose a hero piece, but you can play along with a similar piece you already own.

The idea behind Style it Project ties in with that of Nikki from Styling You‘s #everydaystyle.  I love that women of any size can play along, and we get to see what normal, everyday women look like.  So often, we just don’t get to see people like us in mainstream media.

Are you putting your best foot forward and joining Emma and me this month?
