30. Feet first!

I once worked with a woman who was always extremely well put together. One day she revealedit: she started her outfit by selecting the shoes and building up from there. It always seemed like such a simple concept - but at the same time somehow very extravagant - and needless to say, I never did follow her cue.

But when Spygirl announced her 52-Pick-me-up theme, Feet first,  I certainly wanted to try.
I selected...

Red shoes

a skirt to match shoes

a shirt to match skirt

earrings to match shirt

Does the outfit make sense?

skirt: Gina Benotti (thrifted 2013)
tee: J.Jill (2004)
shoes: Re-Mix (2005)
earrings: via etsy (2013)

I wasn't sure, so I tried another combo:

different red shoes, same skirt as before, another tee, a different piece of jewelry...

skirt: as above (2013)
tee: Indiska (2009)
shoes: Vagabond (2008)
pendant: Midecentury Modern Scandinavian, via etsy (2012)

  1. pretty! love those red shoes : > thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  2. I like both outfits - that skirt is so pretty it could go with either top. I love the first shoes, and the necklace. It's so unusual and interesting.

  3. Very nice! They both work, though I think I favor the red top.
    Thanks for giving it a try for 52 Pick-me-up!

  4. Red shoes always make for an interesting look ... so sweet with your skirt, and either top looks pretty with your skirt.
    Always fun to see the art in your life, as well!
