The white pump

I've been on the hunt for a white pump now for some time. I'm sure it's only been like a month, but it always feels like forever when you're searching for the perfect piece. As part of my bonus splurge, I had ordered the Manolo BB pump in white. I already have them in polka dot calf hair (seen here), so I figured they would work just fine. 

Sunnies: Vince Camuto | Necklaces: CS Gems (c/o) similar here and here (Use code CARYLEE15 for 15% off your order!) | Bag: Kate Spade (option, option) | Top: Express | Bottoms: American Eagle (option) | Shoes: Vince Camuto (similar)

Yeahno. They were super narrow in the toe box, and immediately pinched my feet. I suppose I could have tried another pair just in case I just got a freakishly small version of my size, but I returned them.

I was excited to see that Vince Camuto had a basic pump that was available in white and had a ton of great reviews. They arrived last week and fit like a freaking glove! I was so excited that I accidentally ordered two more pairs.

Vince Camuto pumps: 
Carlotte in Royal Blue Fishskin | Norida in Bittersweet Grapefruit | Kain in White Nappa

But hey, three Vince Camuto pumps is still less than the cost of one pair of Manolos, so I'm *making* money! Ha! I've been super obsessed with basic pumps lately. I think the change to warmer weather has gotten me excited to wear all of my old favorites again, and I just forgot how perfect a basic pump finishes off any outfit.



  1. Yessss I got the norida is patent nude and the sassa in white (http://www.vincecamuto.com/sassa/VC-SASSA.html?dwvar_VC-SASSA_colormaterial=270%20FISHSK), I really want the carlotte too. You and I are cut of the same fabric my friend. Love this outfit of course and I recently wore something very similar. Will post it soon.


  2. So cute! Never owned a pair of white pumps but I may have to reconsider :) Love your layering with the necklaces!!

  4. I'm rocking stripes today as well #twinning! I searched high and low for the perfect white pump and finally found them, but now I NEED those Vince Camutos in Bittersweet Grapefruit, so perfect!

  5. I agree- pumps just finish off an outfit so perfectly and really elongate the leg. (And they look great in top down selfies...what is wrong with me that I immediately consider that for any shoe now?!?!) So fun to see you in the striped sweater, and naturally I love this classic outfit.

  6. I've been loving the white pump on other people a lot!! I've yet to try it myself tho because in my head I think my feet will stand out too much! Funny how you can adore looks on other people, but not think its for you, lol!! Good choice on the coral pair too....finding myself thinking of that color shoe lately so those are right up my alley!!

  7. I recently found a pair of white pumps that I wanted badly but kept putting it off, the day I finally convinced myself to purchase they were out of my size! Whomp! Whomp! These are gorgeous! VC shoes never let me down, they are always super comfy!


  8. I love the striped top and black distressed denim! The pump is so unexpected and dresses the look up!

  9. SO cute! Vince Camuto shoes are always the best!

  10. Love all 3 of those pumps that you ended up getting! So cute! I really "need" to find a pair of white pumps too. LOL

  11. I love the white pump! I just saw a post on Instagram of white pumps with a red plaid shirt tied around the waist that I would love to try to re-create.

  12. I love Vince Camuto pumps! I have one pair (my bronzed metallic pair) that I wear all the time. They are so comfy! I love the three pairs you showed above, especially the blue! The white ones you are wearing are also great. Perfect basic for Summer :)

  13. Ok you are ADORBS as always but I had to stop by and tell you I finally tried on your Express knotted tees.. OMG! Loooove!! Might be the perfect tee, right?!? I got the cobalt but will probably get every single color!! Thanks for the recco!!! Now I need to think about the Portifino... XO ~ Casey @ A Little Bit of Cheer

  14. I was like, how do you accidentally order something (late night Ambien ordering?) but then I got it. You're too funny. I love the look of a white pump. I've been on the fence about getting a pair but I just may do it after seeing yours. I love how you put them with a more casual type outfit and I never would have considered this.

  15. I had been on a hunt for a the perfect pair of white heels too! I just found mine last month from Charles David. I have them same pair in silver but somehow, the whites are not as comfortable. Loving this look!


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  16. These are definitely on my must buy list for the spring/summer season. I always wait to late and never find a pair of white pumps that I like. #ThriftingDiva
