Teal, Stripes and Red Wedges

I’m wearing my teal, high-waisted flares again, but I won’t dare show off the high waist! They’re comfy, but I don’t think it’s an easy look to pull off. Jessica Simpson got in trouble for it, and I would too.

So I covered the waist with a striped t-shirt in a complementary, yet unexpected color and added a pop of red.

It’s hard to see my red wedges. I’d been looking for a pair of red sandals for a long time when an IdeeliĀ ad showed up in my inbox. These are so comfortable and fun, but sadly they’re not holding up. The cork is bunching and coming loose and the insoles already fell out. I guess they’d be fine for just a summer, but I don’t like to throw things away. Ethically, it’s better to make smart purchases and keep things longer.

To extend the life of these shoes, when the cork is kaput, I’ll peel it off, paint the wedges with glue, and add glitter. When that DIY happens, I’ll be sure to blog about it.
