You know what’s awesome? Having a dentist located a block away from some of my favorite stores. Actually, it would be more awesome not having to keep going to the dentist, but if one really must go, Dr. Patel at Green Dentistry is really cool.

You know what’s even more awesome? My new $20 orange sandals, that’s what!

I popped into one of my favorite shop for some “toothache therapy”, having just had another crown done. There is no doubt in my mind that I have spent more on dental work in the last decade than on clothes but that’s a whole other topic. I found these little tangerine gems in a bin just waiting for me. It’s not often that I’m lucky with shoes, especially on a whim. These fit perfect, the price was right and really, how could I resist bright orange?

I couldn’t and now my feet have new best friends.

Sometimes all you need is one little ounce of happiness in the form of color. Rather than match my shoes to other colors in my outfit, I thought it would be fun to let them shine all on their own by pairing them with navy blue. I love the way this turned out. Blue and orange go so well together.

This is another way to add more color into your wardrobe. A fun pair of shoes worn with neutrals such as grey, black or creams can help you break through the scary barrier of wearing bright colors. Have you committed to implementing more color into your wardrobe? Not like I’m trying to talk you into it or anything. (Yes, I am!)

If you don’t believe how good color can be, check out how these ladies are doing it. Suze of Miss Vinyl Ahoy and Emma of Daily Clothes Fix are at the top of my list. They do things with color that make my eyes and soul so happy!
