December 9, 2010: Don't You Step On My Blue Suede Shoes

Yesterday while I was sitting at my desk at work and persuing some of the 30 for 30 outfits and I came across one blogger wearing what looked like brown tights and blue shoes. I was immediately struck with regret! Why hadn't I thought of that with my outfit yesterday? It would have been a great combination and I have a brand spankin' new (to me) pair of blue suede shoes to wear. This all leads me to believe that it might be time for a forgotten shoes fall/winter edition but, I digress... I quickly bounced back from my sad place with an assurance to myself that I would put together a fantastic outfit today that showcased my blue suede shoes. Do you find yourself gravitating more twoards monochromatic or "matchy matchy" pairings or are you all about things that "go" but, don't necessarily "match"?
  • Top: yellow ruffle front blouse, LOFT with a tank top underneath for the modesty
  • Bottom: gray wool pencil skirt, Isaac Mizrahi for Target/hemmed by Mom
  • Shoes & Accessories: blue suede shoes, Nine West via Unique Thrift Store (which look way brighter normal, thanks flash); brown tights, Merona for Target; cut steel necklace, V'ta Jewelry; silver bead earrings, Tiffany & Co.; brown suede purse with silver leaf embellishments, GAP

Items from this outfit are previously seen here, here, here, and here:


  1. I love it! The blue suede shoes look great with the brown tights and I love that yellow top. I generally like things that "go", but occassionally (yesterday), I dip into the world of matchy-matchiness.

  2. SO coming to steal those fabulous shoes!!

  3. I love all the colors in this outfit, so so pretty!

  4. WHat an unexpected combination, which by the way makes you shine....
    I have to say keep those cute shoes in the front row of you closet so you can wear them more. They are perfect.

  5. I love the bright blue shoes with the yellow and grey! Lovely!


Thanks for your feedback! I really look forward to hearing from you...
