My Quest for the Perfect Shoe: Yellow and Orange

Friends, when it is gross and rainy outside (like it is supposed to be this morning), I have the urge to wear yellow.  Something bright and sunny to offset the gloom really helps to improve my mood throughout the day!  My outfit for today consists of a tan blazer and a mustard tunic with jeans - it's casual chic for the office (yay for jeans days in corporate America!).  I would love it if I could wear yellow shoes on dreary are some of my current favorites (and some in my signature color, too!):
Clarks Dollar Craze in Ochre


These are strappy and a bit dressier than some of the styles I have been looking at, but they come in a wide range of colors.

Chelsea Crew Malibu T-Strap Mid Heel Pump

We saw the red version yesterday, but I definitely love the shape of this shoe, and it's so delightful in mustard!


Miz Mooz Women's Yema Wedge Sandal

Something about these reminds me of my grandmother in those old photos when my Dad was a little boy - a vintage feel and I love the pop of blue!



Chelsea Crew Alexa Cut-Out T-Strap Sandal

Of all the shoes I list, this might be the only MUST BUY pair.  Because they are orange.  And I have a problem.


Seychelles Women's All Dressed Up T-Strap Pump

  Oh, so delicate and so expensive...but so pretty...


Seychelles Women's Petunia T-Strap Pump

I really love that these have gold and tan mixed in, and the strap design and cone heel are big winners in my book!


Two Lips Women's Reflection Platform Pump

 These shoes are so epic, there aren't enough words.  Not only are they my university's colors, but they would make me look like a giantess. Oh, the 1970s, I love you so much.


  Friends, what are your feelings about yellow and orange shoes?  I loved all your comments and shoe suggestions from yesterday - I've been hard at work tracking down Hush Puppies and some of the other UK styles in the US!  I'm wondering if it wouldn't be easier to come to the UK and just do some shoe shopping there :)  Who's with me?!

XOXO have a great day all!  Yay Friday!


  1. Come and visit! We would love it, and I love shoe shopping. x x x

    1. I think we would make EXCELLENT shoe shopping buddies!

  2. your shoe posts are driving me nuts.

  3. I love the orange ones and the ones that would make you a giantess would definitely make me one too and I kind of want them now even though I'm not a heels kind of girl.

  4. I wear heels maybe *maybe* once a year, and you have me drooling, especially over the second one. I just want them to look at.......

  5. Drat you. I've been resisting the urge to buy shoes for a couple of months now, and then you dangle these gorgeous ones in front of me like candy?!?! *sigh*

    I love coloured shoes. I only have orange and yellow as sneakers (one pair in each colour) but that's just because I haven't found any in pretty heels in my size yet. (Came soooo close this summer, but they'd sold out of my size.) One day, orange high heels will be mine!!!!

    (And I think you need to get those Miz Moose wedge sandals, if only because I can't get them myself and they're too fabulous for no one to have.)

  6. STOP STOP STOP. MUST NOT INCREASE SHOE WARDROBE. I can tell you that Miz Mooz shoes are awesome... very comfortable and well made. Those T-straps are so fab.

  7. You're giving me shoe fever!!!! lol. If only I had spare moneys to buy myself some fancies for my feets...

  8. Oh, boy!! I love yellow shoes! My favourites for you are the Clarks Dollar Craze in Ochre. Bright and sunny - just like you! :)

  9. Hi Meg, Those chelsea crew t-straps are this close to jumping into my shopping cart in both the red AND the yellow!

    On another note... I wanted to let you know I nominated you for the Liebster Award! Details about the award can be found on my blog. ~Ellen
