Friday Favorites – Wedge Boots

Since I can’t wear my Chucks to my current job, I’m on the hunt for more adult shoes that will be comfortable to walk in and warm enough to wear in winter.

I’m thinking these wedge boots will be stylish and fun to wear with all sorts of outfits. I like that they are ankle boots , making them easy to slip on. I was surprised at how easy they are to walk in, considering I haven’t worn shoes with heels in a few years.

It’s fun to be funky with shoes, don’t you think. Hope you have a great weekend!


Color Palette – Fashion Inspired

The prompt for the third day in Brandi‘s color palette blog walk is to create a fashion-inspired palette, showing colors that inspired you.

I buy almost all of my clothes from my all-time favorite store The Buckle. The truth is, when I walk into that store, at least half of the sales associates yell out my name in greeting. (ahem) Since we are transitioning from summer to fall in my part of the world, I thought it would be fun to show some colors I’m excited to wear as I reach for jeans, long sleeved shirts, and cardigans.

I think I might be into burgundy (or berry) this fall, so I picked this outfit for my first color palette inspiration. In fact, I adore this outfit so much that after playing with this color palette, now I want it! (sshh, don’t tell Dave!) Well, maybe I’ll just take a closer look at the cardigan.

I’m having much more fun matching the colors in these outfits than the previous day’s photos, so how about a second outfit to try. The denim shades were actually fun to try to match.

If you come up with your own palette, be sure to share it with other participants on Brandi’s blog. Tomorrow’s theme is inspiration from art materials, such as fabric, beads, paper, art supplies, or a work of art. I do have a few of those lying around the house, so I hope to come up with something.
