I hope you had wonderful holydays. As the winter advances and sometimes I need to boost my mood in this cold weather, and after watching one of my favorite movies since I was a teen, “The Red Shoes” (1948) an old good movie based in the fairly tale of Hans Christian Andersen , you can see the trailer here:
And some pics from the original movie:
I love this movie because I liked the fairly tale Red Shoes despite the unexpected end and because I take adult ballet lessons for fun and keep flexibility, so after watching it, I said to my self: why if I get some pairs of flats in red? cause red is the color of love and energy, so why not to wear at home and with friends indoors my red flats during winter to break the monotony of the white snow and the dark colors of many of my clothes? Black and brown shoes are boring colors,so I decided to purchase 2 pairs in this happy color, my first pair is a Sam Edelman Felicia flats, one of my fav brands as they are soft and comfortable, I got them at 50% off, and here they are on my feet:
and this some ways that I match them with my shirts and sweaters, and I love how I can match with dressy pants, jeans and capris:
then my second pair is the Tory Burch Minnie Travels flats in color poppy red , but I find more like orange/red color, really flashy color from this brand, I got this pair eBay at a very good price just $ 50, a really excellent deal for this super comfy flats, the color is very original for me and I love how they look on my feet:
And this how I match my flats with different clothes:
This is my today outfit:
Red color was a little bit challenging to match with my clothes, specially flats but when I started to visualize my garde-robe, and making combinations in my mind I realize how easy I can make colorful my everyday clothes, and matching clothes and flats is really funny honestly, and it helps me to relieve and boost my mood during winter, a busy mind is a good one. Have a good day !!
