"A Cheerful Hello, A Nice Smile"

I currently work two part time jobs, and one of them is filling in as a substitute media specialist (school librarian).  Being a substitute, means that you have to make frequent first impressions.  This is what I wore for one of those days last week.  I was originally going to wear plain black shoes, but those goldenrod Malibrans really make the outfit pop.  I really wish I lived in a city that had a Fluevog store.

Lately, I’ve noticed that shoes really are key players in my outfits.  I’m beginning to loathe anything plain and ordinary and black.  I like my shoes to be fun, unique, colorful.  It’s so funny, because a few years ago, all my shoes were brown, and I never bought any other color because I was afraid they wouldn’t match anything.

Dress: American Rag Cie (via Revolve)
Blouse: Anthropologie

Shoes: Fluevog Malibrans

    The Fluevogs really bring the outfit to a whole new level! I’m kind of the same way about shoes, I really need to buy a few black pairs because they’re vastly outnumbered in my wardrobe by colorful shoes.

    I’ve been following your blog for a while and I must say, this might be my favourite outfit of yours. I really admire how well you mix colours. I love how you are layering that teal top under your dress.

    I think this looks reeeeeally great on you! I love A-line styles. And those shoes are too gorgeous.

    I’m in a way glad I don’t live in a city with a Fluevog store — I’d be bankrupt if I did!
