For a long, long, long time, I only owned brown shoes. I was adamant that all of my shoes matched my hair... and since I have brown hair, well. You see the connection.
But a few months ago, I looked into my closet with fresh eyes and realized: too much brown is bland. If I wanted my wardrobe to match my personality (which is anything but boring,) I needed more color.
So, I've been on the hunt for colorific shoes. And, what's the best place to get interesting, colorful shoes? The thrift store. (Good thing I'm doing a thrift store challenge!)
I found these color block gems at Goodwill for $5.99! I kind of feel like an 80's Barbie doll when I wear them. And if they're good enough for Barbie, they're good enough for me. (P.S. - Barbie, if you're reading this: I'm sorry that my mom sold you in that garage sale. For the record, I was just as surprised as you were. I hope you're not angry with me...)
Then, when I put this outfit together, I knew I had to keep the color to a minimum. I didn't want anything else to compete/clash with the shoes! (Style is all about balance.)
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. With my brother in town, I laughed more than I have in a LONG time. (But more on that later.)
If you're interested in my other thrift store outfits, you can find them here and here.
