Statement shoes

All remixed
Dress: Ann Taylor (gift from sister)
Belt: Target
Shoes: Steve Madden via DSW
Bangle: gift from mom
Earrings: Kohl's

Another simple outfit with fabulous shoes. I'm not so sure about how they're working together, but I just wanted to wear the shoes.

So I did. I'm pretending that my volunteer position is a part-time job, and it's been a little hard to get into the swing of working again after all my lazy time this summer. It's also strange to think that my life this year will NOT be revolving around a school calendar.

I worked in an office while I was in college. I interned for USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service, and I did all kinds of "fun" administrative things and also some translation, which was actually fun. But it's been awhile since I was in an office, and I'm getting used to it.

We'll see if I can't turn this into a paying gig come September....


  1. I think the shoes go with the dress just fine. I love wearing black with such a bright color.

  2. Love the shoes, and really, any color goes with the LBD!
    Hope you manage to get the pay upgrade!

    Chic on the Cheap

  3. The shoes are way fun! That dress is super flattering too :)

  4. Very cute, and I like the shoes. :-)

  5. Oh blue shoes!! Love them. I adore shoes which just pop like that. I have a blue pair too!

  6. Oh, I hope you're able to turn it into a paid position! I'll pray for that for you!

    On the outfit front, I LOVE the blue shoes as a pop of color! Those shoes are fantastic and I think they work perfectly with the dress. Which is also great, by the way!

  7. Thanks ladies! I think mainly I was concerned that the dress felt too short with the shoes, but I love that pop of color now that I'm looking at it with some objectivity.

    And I'm hoping the paid position works out, too!

  8. must. have. shoes. NOW!

    (they're so pretty I've lost my ability to communicate properly in English for a while -- or even in my mother tongue for that matter).

    um beijo!

  9. So pretty! On a side note, what is your ethnicity? I love your skin color :)
