Teal Cloth Tennies

Thursday, April 4, 2013





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!

  26. I buy new items not matching with already owned wardrobe quite often- just to have an excuse to buy even more because "I have to wear it with sth" ;-)
    Your whole outfit is super- cute. You paired it great. :-)

  27. So in love with your curly hair-which products do you use to style it or is it your natural hair? The pink looks great on you!!!
