Pop of Color





Top: Urban Outfitters, Leggings: American Apparel, Shoes: Topshop, Hat: D&Y

 Let's be real, this is all about the shoes. Okay, maybe partly about the lipstick, but the shoesies are the real statement piece here. These fun coral oxfords were purchased at Topshop in London (aka Shoppers Heaven). Surprisingly, they can be worn with a number of outfits to add a pop of color and/or jazz up any simple ensemble. 

I sometimes play things safe, and I love that these shoes were a risk! But, they had a great payoff, and once I had them in my closet I learned how to make them work with different pieces. Plus, I'm always in a good mood when I wear them, because really, I think there's some kind of unwritten rule that states you can't scowl when you have bright shoes on. I'm serious, look it up.

I wore black for the rest of my outfit so that my bits of color could really 'wow.' The top is a tank I had from Urban Outfitters. It's a touch big, so I keep it tied in the back to fit a little better. And my leggings are just staple American Apparel that I've probably worn 200 different ways lol. I'm actually not sure if that's an exaggeration...is that scary? Oh well!

As you can see, the vampy lips (MAC 'Diva') are still in full play. What can I say, I'm a loyalist.

Anyways, the weekend is finally here, huzzah!!! My paper is still at a dead halt, but I'm hoping to make progress this weekend. And by 'hoping' I mean 'I have no choice and I'm totally screwed if I don't.' Yay. But, alas, the daytime is for work and the evening for play, so I'll be doing just that ;)

See you Monday BBs!
