Sometimes a little pop of surprise color is all you need to complete an outfit and bring it up a notch from the expected. It can be as simple as the shoes you wear on your feet!

When I first spotted these tennis shoes, I was smitten. I recognize that usually when making a purchase, it's best to asses the piece of clothing and determine how best it would fit into your current wardrobe. I read somewhere that you should always come up with at least three different ways to style an item with clothes that you currently own before shelling out your cash. Did I do that with these? Nope! I went ahead and bought them anyway even though I had no idea what these teal beauties could possibly go with. Do I regret that decision? ...You guessed it, nope! And better yet - they match my earrings. Sometimes impulse buys are the best kind!
