Italian festivities

Today I went shoe shopping with the intent of buying something colorful and summery (and flat!) to add to my collection seeing as how most of my shoes are very neutral, an most of my clothing is either black, white or an earth tone. Instead I came back with a pair of white and a pair of brown shoes. Needless to say, I failed at my goal, lol! On a positive note though, both pairs (both American Eagle from Payless) came to a grand total of $24. So I guess in retrospect I didn't fail TOO badly!

I DID however wear wonderfully bright shoes (one of my only pairs besides the pink guess heels that frequent this blog) last Sunday. Seeing as how it was the kick off to Italian Week here in Ottawa, I decided to show a little of my Italian roots with some bright red shoes, (I avoided the green as it's Italian week and I didn't want anyone to think it was Christmas!).

  1. Cute little summery dress~ I lovelovelove the red shoes with it.

    I try not to go shopping with a specific thing in mind because I never buy or find what I'm looking for. I try to keep a mental list of stuff I need and if I find it I can cross it off.

  2. I love the splash of colour your red shoes add to your pretty summer look. I'm also digging the shades!! I'm a huge fan of neutrals so I'd say you had a rather successful shopping trip. Neutrals are the easiest purchases to justify because they go with everything!! Cute clutch and bracelet too xx

  3. Love these photos! beautiful dress xxx

  4. Great photos! I love you outfit too, the pop of red from the shoes is so cute!


I'd love to hear from you!
