Something bold

Happy Tuesday!
(happy because, tomorrow is a half day and then Thanksgiving and the long weekend, and how can you not love a short week?)

Today I wore something bold. What? Doesn't look bold? Scroll down...

Turquoise pumps

There it is! Bright heels and socks. SO J. Crew inspired.
I feel like I took a chance with this outfit, but I am really please with the results.

I was worried when I put this together that I would get up this morning and chicken out, make up some excuse like it was too cold or 'forget' to shave or something, but I actually think they work. It wasn't even my intent to match my socks to my top, but they just happened to be the right height and were ribbed and managed to be exactly what I wanted.


Turquoise pumps

This skirt is actually one of my favorite pieces. I love the shape, and it was the first high waisted articled I ever purchased.  There was a time when I wasn't really sure about it, but after I forced myself to start styling it, I discovered how great it was.

This is so super adorable, seriously! The heels is the perfect pop and your bold look suits you so well. I love lots that color on you, it goes nicely with your skintone. :) :) YOU ARE SO CUTE.

I like the skirt! I haven't even screwed up the courage to try neutral socks with heels and here you go doing something like this!

woot woot... look at you!! that pop of color with the shoes is so DARING!! so great, very adventurous, playful outfit.. I totally love it. If I saw someone wearing this outfit on the street or in a coffee shop I would think "Man she has style!!" Very cool. And I know what you mean. I play around with ideas that are sometimes really wild and then when it comes time to wear them I chicken out and go conservative... I am inspired by this outfit today!!

nighty night.. off to bed for me! xox j

OMG How cool ! I have been attempting the look but it does not work on me .
I love the color combo, well done :)

Vanessa said...

I love this combination. The teal and the purple are gorgeous, the skirt is just perfect-o. And the bag is so dainty and delicate.
(And, no, in answer to your question about my DIY belly button peircing: I don't have it anymore. It wiggled out while I was practicing an "army crawl" on the floor of the dorm room to plot a quick escape after a college prank.)

Tanya said...

So unique, i love your outfit.

Haha. The 'scroll down' thing totally worked. I was like ...I guess this is kind of bold... then I scrolled down and saw the socks and the shoes. Fabulous! The combination is definitely bold, and I love it!

love the plum color! its so pretty. i would never to think to mesh those 2 colors(blue+plum) but it looks good

gypsyroxylee said...

Love the surprise as I scrolled down! And I love the bright color of those heels. Super cute paired up with the more classy, sombre colors. The high waist skirt is perfect for your body type!

virgo08 said...

Love this! The shape is perfect for you - how tiny is your waist?! Great colours too. I know what you mean about chickening out on outfits - it always seems like a such a great idea the night before, but the morning is a different story. You've pulled it off, though.
