When I think about the little things that get me excited in life, I think of bright colors and…shoes! So I realize that for many people, most would say “What’s the big deal?” Well my friend, it’s hard to put into words but I think it usually comes down to looking for that perfect shade or that perfect shape of a shoe. It’s like the long hunt for just the right something that suddenly makes you have a light bulb moment. Take Sarah Jessica Parkers’ stunning Manolo Blahnik Hangisi blue pumps for instance. You can shop around, you can buy sort of look-a-likes but when it comes down to it, nothing really compares when you know what you are looking for! It is all in the details as they say. Cue my own personal hunt for some blue shoes of my own. I have loved the color Royal Blue for years but it’s so hard to find it and honestly, not come across like you are cheap. I have seen them in many stores but not the kind I would normally shop at and certainly not in a style that could pass for both professional and fun. Imagine my surprise when I found the perfect pair from Old Navy! Double my surprise since I haven’t shopped there since I was in high school looking for the appropriate school uniform khakis. Oh, and imagine my horror of going back there because…yep, school requirements, AGAIN! Ugh, well I guess you never outgrow khakis, even if you want to! I love this color of blue because it can go with so many outfits. I had trouble narrowing down to the two I paired them with! It’s also a block heel, so it’s super comfy to wear all day. Dress them down with jeans or dress them up with a dress, I love these blue shoes! Lesson learned, as we grow, maybe stores we wrote off long ago grow with us! It’s worth checking out and expanding the hunting ground for something your wardrobe has needed! What else could you see yourself wearing with these bright blue shoes?! Leave me comments with your ideas!!
