STYLE GURU STYLE: My Shoes Were Made For Walking

Although it may seem more like trouble, I like to start planning my outfits from the bottom up. My new favorite block heels were practically screaming, “wear me, wear me” the other day and I thought I should go ahead and do them the favor by taking them out. The zigzag heel and thick straps make the shoe a fun project to top off an outfit with, but it’s the metallic color that’s got even Ginger & Smart’s spring 2015 collection buzzing.

My inspiration for this look came from Ginger & Smart’s Australian collection. I combined cool tones with my bold metallic heels, trying to mirror this designers theme. Their love for the natural metallic texture drew me towards picking up my lightweight heel beauties, feeling the need to show them off. The rest of my outfit is taken from the Chanel spring 2015 couture collection. My outfit may not match the intricate pieces the team created but I absolutely adore their love for bold color statements. My top and pants are both forced to be bold in their one color, similar to Chanel’s looks. As much as pieces with designs can look appealing and complex, I like to stick to the single color statement.

Pulling off bold colored tops can be a fun thing. The plainer the top, the more options you have to add to your outfit. Take mine for example. I added a cream, lace bralette into the mix of things, which created an interesting back. By the way, I can’t get enough of these things. The lace bralette’s are a simple addition to your look but can add dimension and elegance so easily.

My outfit also includes layered necklaces. With my hair board straight, slicked behind my ears, giving me an open neck, I figured adding a couple necklaces rather than big earrings would be a fun way to go. My favorite necklace in this outfit is the chocker leather strap, pearled one. My sweet little sister made it for me and I think adding it to my outfit, gives it a little edge.

A simple top and a pair of ripped up white jeans will always be in style, so add whatever accessories and shoes and adapt it into your own style!
