The Splendids are Splendid indeed!

As I mentioned to the Generalissima (aka Joanne), I’m trying to merge a bit of the Abstraction Expressionist ethos of color into my wardrobe. THIS time I actually took a pic of the top part of my outfit for the day because, well, you were probably wondering, “Okay, great, nice pants or tights and shoes but what the hell does the rest of the outfit look like?” In any case, the look on my face says exactly what you think, “Yup, color is fun and I feel weird taking pictures of myself in my cubicle when I should be working.” Ha ha ha. Everyone needs a break and here it is. Brought to you by yours truly.

This time I’m providing the top part of my outfit for the post! A dressy tank (from one of my fave boutiques in SF, Azalea) with my favorite blazer (rolled up sleeves, of course – Rag and Bone), and a three chain gold necklace with turquoise bobbles (XXI or Forever 21)

While I love the Splendids, I will offer some advice since I’m breaking them in. Get pads for the balls of your feet. Even though I’m accustomed to walking in heels (not stilettos…that’s a whole other foot game all together), the pads serve as a bit of shock absorption. I find myself stomping in my Splendids (yes, as if some house music and a red carpet is about to roll out in front of my feet). They are that type of shoe! The 3″ heel is pretty deceptive due to the construction of the shoe. They look pretty high but they are just enough height. Along with the subtle patterning, these gems go with almost anything. 🙂

Color blocking has been one of my favorite things lately! The coral (reddish, if you will) jeggings (Hue) with my Splendids!
