With my new blonde hair brightening my look up, I decided to push myself further and try an outfit full of brights.  Bold colors like this are still somewhat of a challenge for me, because I’ve always been told that I am too pale for these shades.  In the interest of not letting myself be limited by arbitrary fashion rules, I just went for it.  And is so often the case, I found I felt great in something I never thought I “could” wear.

As for my new favorite pair of shoes: These flats are total compliment magnets.  The unique design is fun and very eye catching.  They are also surprisingly comfortable for molded rubber – just be sure to watch out for rubbing the first time you wear them!
