Markdown Mondays: Spring Edit, Part 3
2 more weeks till it’s (officially) Spring!
This week’s countdown #MarkdownMondays is all about those shoes! Do you ever find a great pair of heels and create an entire outfit (or even series of outfits) around it? That’s exactly what happened with these Manolo Blahnik Chaos Snakeskin Ankle Strap Sandals in lime yellow.
For this collage, I styled the shoes with this sleek and polished Elie Tahari Blazer from Saks Off Fifth, a pretty micro-pleated midi skirt from JCrew, a neon cobalt blouse from Banana Republic and a fun & functional Grey Street Tiny Cooper Bag by Kate Spade.
Styling Tip: when you have a bright accessory (like these lime Manolo’s), for the rest of your outfit, pick a color to complement the accessory to be the main hue – with varying tones and shades, and polish off with a clean blazer or coat to balance out the vibrance.
Please check out all the shopping details below.
