with half of the country in a deep-freeze and the other half welcoming spring it’s always a dilemma this time of year for a style blogger. what to do? what to do? coats, sweaters, and denim? or sweaters, denim and sandals? as you can see i decided to haul out a pair of orange sandals and multi-colored handbag to brighten this dreary february day. notice the block heel. this is something we will be seeing more of this season and i couldn’t be happier. although a ballet flat and pointy-toed pumps (two of my go-to’s) will always stand the test of time. shoes are many times updated (or dated) by the style of the heel. but the block heel is a sturdy and attractive choice. the pair i have on for today’s ootd is just plain fun. sometimes, there’s nothing more spectacular than an uncomplicated outfit. and what could be more effortless than a sweater paired with light wash denim? in this case, it’s all about the color scheme and simple details like the metallic belt that tie-in with the gold studs on the sandals. toss on several layers of long necklaces, a gold cuff, and i’m good to go.
