HOW TO MATCH SHOES: COLOR, SEASONS, AND HEELS

There are so many different ways you can match your shoes. That's a fact.
From the color of your clothing to your mood – there are many wide horizons that it can be very overwhelming. Today, I am going to share some tips for mixing and matching your favorite shoes as I know there are many things that need to be considered.


So, one of the first and one of the most classic ways to match your shoes is with color. Imagine you are dressing in blue. Logically a nice pair of blue shoes would be your first pick, but this is the old fashion way. The contemporary and new way for matching shoes is playing with opposite colors in the color wheel. So if you are dressing all in blue then pull bright yellow shoes! It will look modern and make a much more interesting look to your outfit.


 Another way to can match your shoes is by looking to your printed clothing or multi-colors for inspiration.  For instance, if your blouse is printed in various colors like blue, green and black then you can pull footwear in these colors!

If you really want to dress in the same color palette then you can definitely do it while matching your shoes. But have some fun and pull shoes in slightly different shade color. For instance, if you are dressing all in bright red, wear heels in burgundy. This will complete your look instantly and will avoid looking a monochromatic head-to-toe red.



Now let‘s continue with seasons and shoes to match it. We all understand that those high heels you are in love are neither comfortable nor acceptable or warm in cold seasons. Try walking through 2 feet of snow in 3 inch heels.  Not happening. I usually wear my big boots to work and bring my heels in a bag.   During summer, chose footwear that is light and easy, this is no place for those Sorels.  Fall, Summer and Spring are much interchangeable and can create some fun looks, I usually rotate out the colors that don't work and keep in the basics: nudes, metallics and plaid.

Right now is the best time to shop for all these shoes out of season shows, which means lower prices and better selection! Moreover, if you use some life hacks (for instance, Nordstrom promo codes from ChameleonJohn.com) you can reduce that price tag even more. So enjoy!


Finally, the last thing you should consider before pulling a shoe is whether or not those heels work for you. For instance, if you are a lady with short legs, stay away from heels with ankle straps or T-straps – it will shorten your legs even more. Also, ladies with short legs should avoid heels that are more than four inches tall. If you have long feet and wish to make them look smaller then choose heels with oval-shaped or square-toed heels. And always have a pair of classic black heels that can match any occasion, outfit and season flawlessly. 

So, enjoy choosing the best shoe, mixing it and matching it and have a great time dressing up!

Sunshine inspired fashion

Today I'm showing you the first outfit I got on my trip to Scotland/England and it just happens to be in one of my favourite colours....yes, yellow.  I also put together some of my fave yellow picks on the interwebs for you in the above link.

I have posted a few of my fave yellow pieces before like the one with the blazer  or the one with the yellow shoes and jacket and then there is also this bag that I got in Vegas last year that always makes me swoon....


Anyway, I'm rambling....today's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it. Muahahahahha...here's sneak peak.

A blogger meet up in Toronto

It was like a weekend long blind date...... e-Harmony but for friends..... Possibly one of the craziest things I've done..... But I spent the weekend with 10 other women whom I met online. Well, except for my real life bestie on the far right. We have a group of 14 bloggers who have been collabing since the spring of 2014 and what first was simple blog fun has quickly become a sisterhood.   Last year we met in Vegas, this year we settled for Toronto and had 11 members.
Trip highlights include a bus trip with wine and Niagara Falls, a walking tour of downtown Toronto, plenty of great meals, a shopping adventure and rooftop hot tubs at night.  I could go into the details, but for me, the actual trip to Toronto wasn't why I went...the Jays weren't even playing. What brings me the most joy about this trip is the fact that women from all walks of life, all ages (we had 30, 40 and 50 somethings) with a gamut of different interests took a leap of faith and traveled to meet women…

London 1

Sunday/Monday was a blur.   It went from cruising around Toronto (that means shopping) with the little group of Blended Bloggers that were left over to heading to the airport to meet Dan and the kids then to an overnight flight to Dublin and then another 2ish hour flight to London.  At least the kids slept an hour or two, but I couldn't do it.   Currently in zombie mode.   When we got to our hotel (MalMaison Charterhouse Square) we had to nap. Well I had to anyway before I started losing it.   After an hour long family nap, Dan headed to work and I decided to take the kids out on an adventure in the neighbourhood.  We're only 850 metres from St. Paul's Cathedral and I hadn't visited it last time I was here so it was an easy pick. First I had to devise a plan to keep them engaged and because Pokemon is all they ever want, it was an easy bait.  The deal was that if they came and learned something with me, they got to have some Pokemon time in the area. It worked like a …
