Olive Skinnies and More Blue Shoes

Yes, I’m wearing blue shoes again today:

I told you I loved them. They just make me so darned happy.  Also making me darned happy?  This combination of royal blue and olive that I stole from one of my new favorite bloggers, BiblioMOMia.  It’s okay; I told her I was going to steal the idea because we’re cool like that.  I paired my olive skinnies (Gap) with a cream tunic (Chenault via Nordstrom Rack), blue leopard flats (Nine West “NW Naughty) and one of my favorite bracelets (thrifted).

I usually pair this blue with brown – I think it’s interesting that not once did pairing it with olive cross my mind until I saw BiblioMOMia do it.  I mean, olive and brown aren’t that far off, you’d think I’d have stumbled on it eventually.  But, I don’t think I would have.  I’m just not sure color combinations are my forte.  If you’re wondering what my forte is, it’s sass.  And being tall.  I’m really good at being tall and sassing folks.

Today’s Takeaway?  Know your strengths.  And then play to them.  I walk around tall and sassy every day.  True story.

Happy Thursday, Everyone!
