Trend Alert- Popping Neutrals with Bright Pumps

Posted on: September 30, 2014

I’ve been noticing and been attracted to a lot of looks on Pinterest

that have all one color and the only Pop is in the shoes…

So I decided to give it a whirl…

Readers if you wish to join me on my Ireland Journey, Please Like My Facebook Page, as

I will be posting there , but not taking time to write posts here! 


I of course had to have a top that had a little green in it as well…

It just got cool enough for me to wear this much loved kimon0 sleeved banded bottom  sweater from last year…

Here’s an orange banded bottom top from Metrosytle 

Here’s a black kimono sleeve sweater from Chadwicks


You can’t tell put the green is added by a houndstooth print.  

I paired my glass bead necklace with it.   


Popping a head to toe color with a colorful  shoe is one trend represented here..

The other is going back to matching purses, belts and shoes…

We’ve been doing contrasting colors for awhile now , but for those who like matching,

it’s coming back….

Another option would be to wear classic neutrals and a pop in the shoe..

I have orange pumps and this would be an easy look to recreate…

Or How about a chambray and black with cobalt pumps…

Dear Readers, Do you have at least one bright colored pump to try out this trend?  

Do you like this idea?

I have cobalt ones as well… My orange and cobalt ones are both from the Comfort Plus Line @ Payless, which now has a teal color…

If you are not into wearing heels then I recommend getting a similar look by adding a colored pointed toe flat. 

Here’s a link to cobalt flats from Target. 


I am grateful that DH and I met up for lunch today as we both took a break from running  our separate errands.

I am grateful my husband was able to find his Dockers slim fit pants in his new size today, as he’s lost 2 inches off his waist and his pants looked ridiculous…. He joked and called them his lucky pants as he sold a lot of deals in them these past two months….

I am grateful that our to do list is whittling down and I just have ink to buy to print our airline and train tickets, while DH has to get a new cell phone and maps for the GPS for Ireland.  

I am grateful I decided not to homeschool except for French and Piano this week…
