I love a good vintage piece, and this yellow shirt dress caught my eye almost immediately while perusing a thrift shop one afternoon. Its bright color seems to instantly pour on good vibes, no matter what the current state of affairs may be. On this occasion I kept its pairings simple so this bold color truly could stand alone. I added my favorite red lippie (Sephora 01), a matching belt, a fun statement bag, and a pair of comfy sneakers. Check out more of my vintage scores here!

We celebrate Christmas with my in-laws and it’s a casual (and fairly long) affair, so this was worn several days before. But as I was getting dressed, I did notice that – minus the jacket – I looked more or less like a slightly edgy version of Mrs. Claus. Totally unintentional, I assure you.
I have never been a red shoe type of gal. I have always, for whatever reason, preferred blue shoes. And then I met these:
I think it was probably the scalloped edges that did me in. But, the totally walk-able heel isn’t hurting matters. Or my feet.
Still, I wasn’t sure I’d really wear them. After all, they *are* red and I’m a lifetime member of Team Blue Shoe. But, can I just say that those little babies are easily as versatile as my beloved blue shoes.
