Spring Colors and Tipsy Skipper Skimmers


 These spring sweaters worked well with the new pair of Tipsy Skipper Skimmers, that the company recently sent.

The owner of Rhode Island based Tipsy Skipper, Kearsley Lloyd, is keeping the manufacturing in the US.
 

She even manages to make cardboard look better.

And they are beautifully presented.

A Perfect Match with Lilly Cardigans

I saw those Tipsy Skippers on another preppy blog too! Do they fit well? How do they compare to your Eliza B flats in terms of comfort? I love your stack of Lilly cardigans, very enviable. Do you always opt for cotton, or cashmere too?

@Knot Just Nautical - I find them to be very similar to my Eliza B flats, although they seem to run a bit larger. I have some cashmere, but mostly cotton.

Love the cable knit sweaters and the cardis.
I'm always in the market for a nice skimmer (I usually call them ballet flats, but no matter)and these ones you have are very cute, colorful and "preppy". Well done.

I was already won over at "Tipsy Skipper".

These are adorable! I wish this pattern also came in other colors.

Are these too dressy to wear with khakis and a polo shirt? Love the shoes and the sweaters!

So cute! I've been admiring Tipsy Skipper flats for a while now, but I was wondering how the sizing is. Online it says to order a 1/2 smaller than one's usual size, and I was wondering if this held true with you.
Thanks,
Kate

@Anonymous 5:46 - I think they would look great with khakis and a polo.

@Kate - Mine are a 9 1/2. Although I sometimes wear a 9, mostly I wear a 9 1/2, and these are just perfect. They feel great.

If I could "like" Yankee Whisky Papa's comment, I would.

I absolutely love those shoes! They are just so pretty with both sweaters. I have the blue one, so can't wait to order some of my own...feel like Spring is in the air.

I kind of want a pair after seeing you and Sarah Vickers post about them! And your Lilly's are wonderful, of course.
