It's about the clothes. Not the girl. But that's the fun of it. So just keep guessing...

Shoes Up

Happy Thursday! I know that the main part of the outfit (dress or shirt/bottom combo) is supposed to be the "meat" of the outfit and organizing an outfit around accessories is deemed as bad.... BUT today I created my outfit from the shoes up! Hence the title :) Some days, you just have a really great pair of shoes that the outfit needs to be centered around. At least that's what I like to tell myself! After deciding on the leopard flats, I wanted a nice pattern contrast. Since the pale leopard acted as my neutral, I used green & blue stripes to complement the neutral! Turning this outfit from casual to preppy casual called for a collar -- simply a transparent collared blouse underneath the striped top. The thing I loved about making this outfit was how versatile it is! For some, this could be an outfit for a day with the kids. For others, maybe a casual date during the day or a girl's day out. Either way, it's a day time outfit that anyone could safely wear to their occasions or events. 

Stay happy <3

  1. I love breaking the rules and picking out my shoes first, I actually did that last night, and I loved the outfit I came up with. Sometimes it pays to be a rule breaker ;-) I love the pattern mixing going on here, definitely a winner!
