Why So Colorful?

casualcasual3casual4

On one of my last days in New Hampshire I wore this outfit.  Aside from some rather amazing shoes that James gave me for Christmas (…with a little help from a wish list), this outfit was plain.  It was mostly just a go-to for running errands with a dash of colorful shoes to make me feel pretty.  However, upon seeing it my brother exclaimed, “This is New Hampshire.  No one dresses that colorful.

I guess New Hampshire wasn’t ready for these shoes. 

I also guess that bright shoes automatically make everything else you’re wearing crazy colorful.  That’s me, though.  Crazy.  Crazy like olive green.  Ooo, somebody control me, please!

And let me tell you, as I was running around Walmart (raiding the aisles for tax-free loot) you’d think I was dressed to go to a ball.  Oh the looks I got!  Apparently if you’re in a Walmart after 8pm in more than a pair of sweatpants, you’re suspicious looking.  Sartorial profiling at its best, people.

  1. Haha awesome--and I LOVE the shoes :)

    Also, I've been reading your blog for awhile and I wanted to invite you to the SoCal Blogger Meetup I'm planning on Feb. 4.. It's in San Diego, and a bit of a drive from you.. but I know other LA bloggers are looking to come and carpool. :)

    It's going to be a really fun time with free food, cheap drinks, and lots of fun sponsors.

  2. Melina, those SHOES. I am in all sorts of love with them.

    My new guy doesn't wear much color but he always compliments me on the fact that I adore color in my wardrobe. So I guess color is appreciated in Wisconsin.
