I saw a really cute pair of shoes the other day, and I actually passed them up because I didn’t know what to pair them with. Those who know me will be shocked that I was actually able to pass up ANY shoes. If they have my size and I like them, I pretty much buy them. But I really thought about it and couldn’t think of what I owned that I could pair with these yellow shoes.
Now, I probably have a million outfits I could put with these that just didn’t come to mind, but I’ll throw the question out to you guys. What would you wear with yellow shoes?
My first thought was gray pants, but that seems a bit formal for this casual pair. Obviously, jeans would work. But what top and what hijab? Here are a couple possible shirts that would work, but it’d be nice to have more so as not to waste $60
Let’s see how creative everyone is with their suggestions. If you guys are really helpful, I might just go back and buy the yellow shoes.
By the way, Michelle Obama lately has been rocking the yellow more than any other color.
It’s fun for the summer, and I’ve tried to incorporate it into my wardrobe. One of my favorite outfits in the past months is a pair of slate grey pants, a yellow tank top and light grey cardigan. It always makes the day a little sunnier when your outfit is a little bright.
