Bold print on a block heel sandal

Older photos today from before I went back to my darker hair color… Bear with me, I may have a few more posts in this lighter shade…

Today something you don’t see me in often on the blog, meaning, a very monochromatic color palette (minus the shoes), but believe me when I say that I wear this vest more often than I should admit to. It is my go to for work when I am rushing out the door and need to put something together quick. That is, that happens EVERY day haha, rushing that is. But here, I purposely did a subdued color palette such that I could wear these colorful Steve Madden sandals and let them be the focus.

I easily can picture these sandals being worn with something just as colorful though, maybe a solid bold color, or even something printed. Sky is the limit; there are no rules when it comes to color mixing or print mixing anymore, so no need to play it safe. 

Wearing: Steve Madden sandals (linked to an almost identical print to mine); Gap jeans; vintage long sleeve tee; BCBG Max Azria vest (old, similar here and here); Badgley Mischka bag.
