Daily outfit and style tip, wearing navy blue skirt, blue & off-white buffalo plaid shirt, orange sandals

Daily outfit and style tip, wearing navy blue skirt, orange sandals

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.

{ style tip: }

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!

    Love this look and your darling orange sandals! What a fun punch of color. I’ve been wanting to work more color into my wardrobe all year. I’ve managed to work some of it into my closet, now it comes down to actually wearing it…

  42. マンモスローン

    May 28, 2016 at 2:34 am

    主婦がキャッシングしようと思った場合に、夫に秘密にしたい人が多く、ついついバレてしまうことを嫌って足を踏み出せない人が多いようです。本当は一般的な金融会社ではパートタイマーなど定職のある主婦は配偶者やその他の身内など誰にも秘密のままでキャッシングする事ができるのです。キャッシングをしたなら返済期日までに借り入れ金額に利息をプラスした金額を返済を行わないといけませんが、一度延滞をしてしまうと貸金業者から一括で返済を求められることもあります。ですので、お金を用意できないときは予め業者に連絡するのがよいでしょう。突然な督促は来なくなりどう返済すればいいのかの相談にも乗ってくれます。

  47. 引越し費用

    August 21, 2016 at 4:14 pm

    引っ越しを行う時の手続きの一つに、転出届の提出があげられます。しかしながら、これは今の住所と新住所が違う市長村の場合となります。同一市町村の場合には、転居届になります。手続きを行う日程は、引っ越しの2週間前とか引っ越し先がきまればすぐなど、市町村によっても異なりますので、早めに確認することをおすすめします。

    引っ越しが上手いか下手かは、スケジュールを理解しているかどうかになります。流れは、またの名を段取りとも表現されます。

    この段取りがスムーズでないと、大幅に時間が押してしまう場合もあります。ただ、このような事は、理屈一辺倒で作業するよりも経験が左右するのかもしれません。
