New Yellow Shoes


Sheer shrug, Forever 21. Top, Moda International. Skirt, Banana Republic. Shoes, Delicious. Bag, Express. Earrings, thrifted. Feather pendant, Urban Outfitters.

I wasn’t going to buy new yellow shoes when my pair finally died. I was going to move on to new colors, like purple. But this pair was so perfect, and I missed my old yellow shoes so much, that I gave in when I found these mustard pumps at Shoe Carnival. (By the way, that store name cracks me up! Because what could me more fun than a CARNIVAL of SHOES?)

The shoes look stunning but can you wear them all day?
I love the sleek silhouette today and the purple shrug.

Love, love, love this look! Those shoes are an awesome accent the outfit.

Fantastic new yellow shoes! And the purple looks great.

I love this outfit!!! Definitely one of my favorites. And the shoes are gorgeous. My motto is why choose one when you can choose both...yellow AND purple. Gotta love it!

Rural Felicity said...

LOVE the purple shrug AND the shoes!! I wish I lived near a Forever 21 because so many of the items I love on you are from there.

KD said...

We are kindred spirits when it comes to brights! Except for purple. I've always loved purple and sometimes mix multiple shades of purple in one outfit.

I really admire your ability to mix colors. You're inspiring me to get a bit more adventurous.

And I LOVE that skirt.

Love this outfit! Those shoes are killer, and look great with the purple. You look lovely.

This outfit is amazing!

I am so envious of your ability to rock the pointy-toed shoes. I always worry that they make my already sizeable feet look enormous. Love the outfit, btw. I don't know why you had such an issue with purple -- it looks great on you!

Oh, I think I may be doing some shopping this weekend!

Leslie said...

Fabulous new yellow shoes! Your last ones inspired mine and they are oh so fun to wear. I especially love yellow with purple although its hard for me sometimes since I feel like I'm in my middle school wear (they were the school colors!)

Trish said...

I so love those shoes, but are they comfy? I mean, I'm a high heel lover but those don't look like you could walk that far in them.

Whatever you decide, definitely you need yellow shoes in your wardrobe - for sure!

I just wanted to say, I have a pair of yellow and white hidden platform shoes by Delicious, and I LOVE them. They are surprisingly comfortable, look chici, and are affordable. I want a pair of all yellow ones to wear with all the things that I don't want to wear yellow and white with. I really dig yours!

Laura said...

K, how do you wear the shoes with no hose/socks/anything?! I have mad blisters on my feet right now from trying to go sockless in my work shoes and have had to rock the Crocs for about 3 weeks now because of it. Hopefully I can be back in my good shoes soon - I miss looking cute! - but I feel like there is some critical fahsion trick I am missing. Maybe it's just 'cause I'm on my feet all day. Any tips? PS - thanks for the rec on We Love Colors! I am salivating over their stuff and can't wait for my paycheck on the 25th!!

Kasmira said...

The only walking I do in my fancy shoes is to and from the bus stop and then a couple of blocks a day inside the office building. I'm sitting most of the day!

To avoid blisters, I've heard Blister Block recommended by others. I just wear nude fishnets if my shoes are rubbing. From a distance, you can't tell you're wearing hose and they are really comfortable. I'm wearing them here:

Fantastice shrug! And I'm so glad you replaced your yellow shoes. It was you who inspired me to buy mine.

Always In Style said...

Great outfit - love the purple & yellow. combo.

Very impressed that you can wear them all day too :)

Btw, I don't know the official launch date of the Rachel Bilson DKNY line but am so sad that dress is sold out!

protrails said...

Yellow shoes. Delicious. Mmmmm, just need to top with honey.

Hillary said...

So cute! Love this outfit and those shoes rock!

Monique said...

After starting to read your blog, you don't know how bad I have been wanting a pair of yellow pumps! Love the outfit, yellow and purple look so good together!

This is a really nice outfit. The shoes give it that pop.
