Backsliding

As you can see, our 65 degrees and sunny days disappeared this weekend and gave way to blustery winds, snow and cold temperatures. I was hoping to have better weather to debut these new $5 shoes I found. They’re slippery little guys, but when it came down to safety versus style, I chose style. Not a hard choice to make. Here’s the breakdown:

Cardigan: J.Crew via Goodwill
Shirt: Gift
Skirt: Banana Republic
Tights: Kohl’s
Heels: JC Penney
Bag: Coach via Garage sale

This outfit completely revolved around what would show these shoes off best. But not wanting to succumb completely to the winter uprising and wanting to keep up the colorful theme I’ve had these past few weeks, I chose a bright pop of color to layer underneath all the neutrals. Oh, and this bright pop of color is not unlike a pair of colored jeans you’ll probably be seeing on the blog tomorrow … .
