Inspired by Style Underdog's Blue Suede Shoes Post

This outfit was inspired by Style Underdog's Blue Suede Shoes post, unfortunately her blog is down right now so I can't show you her photo.  I tried really hard to find her Alfani gray & white floral pencil skirt from Macy's, but it is sold out.

Instead I found this similar skirt at White House | Black Market.  Similar except that it is A-line instead of pencil and that it has black in the print.  I did find the blue suede pumps in the same brand and style, but SU's are five inch heels.... mine.... two and a half.   I'm wishing the photo showed how much the blue pops the outfit.  Too much sun here I suppose.

A True Wrap Dress - Baby Shower Outfit

I wore this wrap dress last Saturday to a friend's baby shower.  You can't really see in the photo the tie at the side of my waist which has a wonderful slimming effect for my body.  I think nude pumps would have looked better and definitely more spring-like, but the day was a bit chilly.  I needed the boots to keep warm this time, but hopefully soon I'll be able to wear my Cole Haan peep-toe nude pumps with this dress.

I learned a bit about complementary colors in a recent article in Real Simple Magazine - they featured orange and how it goes so well with navy.  I learned they are opposites on the color wheel and that's why they look so good together.  So, I have this orange clutch as my pop of color to complement the navy in the dress.  I think Clinton would be so proud!
