Orange Shoes

At my last job, my nickname was "Orange Shoes".  I showed up to work on my first "Casual Friday" wearing a pair of orange peep-toe flats with some skinny jeans and a white button-up (I never forget what I wear and when I wear it--it's sick and wrong, but go with it).  "Orange Shoes" stuck. 

Side bar:   For this, I can thank the most handsome dark chocolate I've ever seen who wears a new watch everyday, "The Don".  And actually, the name was sung instead of spoken.  Even better.  Love you, Don!

Back to the shoes..that was three summers ago.  Just last month, I had to throw those babies away.  It was a sad day, but all good things must come to an end.  And then we move on to bigger and better pairs of orange shoes...

These are a pair of fantastic espadrilles I found at Marshalls about a month ago.  I had to have them.
Especially for only $19.99. 

It feels good to be back.

Sometimes when I go shopping and buy something totally whimsical like this, I forget what I already own and think "What the heck would I ever wear with these?".  Then I get home and have a fashion show with myself and my closet.  I don't know how I still surprise myself, but I managed to build multiple (fantastic) outfits around these crazy orange kicks.

And other times, I browse different online stores and come across elastic espadrilles just like the ones I already own (for $19.99), but they're $40 more.  See here:

I like mine more.  I also like the price I paid more :)
