Robin’s Egg Blue and Dove Gray

I have a bird theme going on today. My pants are robin’s egg blue and my shoes are dove gray. Well, the first ones. The second are blush pink. I can’t think of a bird-related name for that color.

I started with sky-high Badgley Mischka pumps. These are my cab-to-café shoes–but I was on my way to work.

Before I even finished this shoot, my feet were getting sad. I knew I wouldn’t last 8 hours in them so I switched to ballet flats.

Both these shoes are on the pricier side of things. The Badgley Mischkas were on sale online. The Jimmy Choos weren’t, but at least I’m getting lots of use out of them–and they are more comfortable for the long haul. The heels make the outfit more elegant, but I value comfort too.

I call these pants my “old lady pants” because they are high-waisted, pleated, tapered leg pants that one might associate with “the older set.” But rolled up and paired with a slouchy top, they suddenly become on-trend. I didn’t want to fork over a lot for the pastel trend or the harem trend, so I turned a pair of $5 pants into the latest thing. When I don’t wear them out of the house anymore, they’re going to be great for lounging around in.

Black and Gray on a Windy Day

Today I’m in neutrals again. I’m wearing the dove-gray Badgley Mischka shoes I debuted on my jumpsuit post. The shoes weren’t cheap, but they were 5o% off at My Habit, a daily deal, online shopping site. The discount put them in the price range of Nine West or Aldo. If you have an Amazon account, you can sign into My Habit and spend and/or save away!

I can’t believe how windy it was during my shoot. No, I didn’t use a fan. Yes, my camera and tripod almost blew over.

I wish I could remember the name of the skirt designer. I cut out the tag and vowed to remember, but of course, the name slipped my mind.
