Keep One 4 the Next OOTD #7

Having fun with outfits

Was your guess right on what I would keep from yesterday’s OOTD for today’s OOTD? Still screening? It is hard to find. Hint: Button of the photo. The flats!

Here I am going for a neutral outfit for work. I like the “colorless” cleanness of just white, gray, and black. This color combination – like black and white – is a statement all by itself.

Shoes can make or break an outfit

One can never underestimate what shoes can do for an outfit.

Wearing the right shoes sometimes can be really tough. In cold climate regions, it is snow or sleet that make wearing the right pair of shoes difficult. My solution to this winter style problem is a large bag. I put my shoes in a fabric shoe bag and carry them back and forth to the office. Thus, at least indoors, the outfit is having its “icing on the cake” – the right shoes.

The pitfall, however, is that sometimes I forget my shoes at the office. If it happens several days in a row, an office can quickly look like a shoe store – LOL. 😉

Rule of two

As it was raining,I added my HH yellow raincoat that I bought in the men’s department and my sunflower yellow bag – a gift from my husband. On rainy gray days, I like to add a pop of color when being outside to lift the mood of the people around me. To look stylish always have each non-neutral color at least twice in an outfit. It can be in a different shade.
