I was cleaning out the shoes in my closet when I saw this pair of black creepers that I saved up my moneys for waaaaay back during my early undergrad years. Those days, these pups and I were inseparable, and I would brave the slippery, sloping hill from my dorm room to my classes with nothing between the ice and my socked feet but 3 inches of tracktionless rubber. I must have had a death wish or something.

These days, these creepers are pretty much time-outing 24/7 in the back of my closet, while I decide whether or not I can part with the memory of pairing them with petticoats or rainbow tights. Perhaps one day. 


  1. I would so kill myself in those shoes - so I've not nothing but respect for you! And those glasses are so cute.

  2. Those looks like foot comfort! Love the pink and teal together, esp wit that darling bow and collar!

  3. I really like the pink/green color combination! It's so fun and springy :) And the crochet collar is so cute! I didn't even know such things existed!

  4. Ha! I love that you used to trek around in those and risk it all on the ice and snow! Sounds like something I would have done in my younger years too! They are really cute shoes though. I love your striped sweater and pink tights too!

  5. I actually wore mine to a professional office for a year while I learned what was and wasn't okay to wear to work. My husband called them my kicking shoes because they looked like something a football player he used to watch wore to punt. Memories!

  6. Love the look! I don't think I could wear creepers-I'd feel like Frankenstien since I'm 5"10" haha!

  7. Cute shoes, and I love your glasses, too!

  8. hahaha laura! they are too cute doll. I love the buckle and scalloping. they look great paired with those hot pink tights. you can still rock them.

  9. That is such a cute outfit. I love stripes and have acquired a lot of striped tops and such lately. I also love your glasses.

  10. Hahha, I think I have a pretty good idea of which hill you're talking about there! (It's a evil beast, I fell down that stupid thing way too many times.) I love how you found these creepers, I've always wanted to try a pair but I've never been brave enough to give them a ago. They fit your personality and style so well, you just flat out rock them. (And I love how they offset the sweet collar and your hair bow, that is just the best outfit mash-up ever.)

  11. ah, just found your blog. you have the neatest style! i adore these shoes you are wearing here and all of the color in this outfit!

  12. Cute color combination. I like the tights!


  13. You brave soul! And here I thought I was crazy walking around in the slippery know in my well-loved and tread-worn moccasins. Just the mere thought of 3 inches of tractionless rubber is making me feel woozy :P

    I really like the collar over this sweater. Pretty pretty!

  14. So cute, Laura! Love the pairing of the pink tights with them too!
    And I think I've mentioned this before, but I love, love, love those glasses on you. Makes me want to get a third pair which I think might be a step too far having just gotten those Warby Parkers.

    p.s. What lippie are you wearing? Also looks gorgeous on you, por supuesto!


  15. I always love it when I find a "new" pair of shoes in the back of my closet that I had totally forgotten about! Its like shopping all over again. Btw Laura, I just loooooove how your green hair looks tied up like that with the cute pink bow. Just so so cute!
