Results: Color blocking with loud and muted colors

For some reason when I think color-blocking, I think of bold bright colors.  But that's not true!  You can be loud and bold with cool, slightly muted colors too.  Mixing and matching loud and muted is also encouraged.  This winter, I'm going to be loud and bold with this cobalt blue peacoat (if you hurry now you can get this coat with the thinsulate lining for $59.99 + 15% off, just go here and use code '15AFFND').  It was rather chilly pre-Thanksgiving when I wore this so the thinsulate lining was very much welcomed.

Oooh!  Look at me!  I'm balancing on my tip toes in heels...I hope I don't fall over before the 10 second timer on my camera goes off...


Did I mentioned I got new shoes?  These are the Frenchi by Jessica Simpson.  They come in four colors but lately I've been on a gray suede shoe craving so I had to choose the grey.  They're extra chunky and extra comfortable!  Seriously, I can wear them all day without having to take them off.  The platform is 2" and the heel is 5" so overall the shoe only feels like a 3" heel.  Amaaaa-aaazing!

Anyone have any good Thanksgiving / black Friday / cyber Monday stories to tell?  Any shoe-ventures?  All I did was cook, eat, shop, eat some more, shop some more, and then ate a whole lot more.  I can't wait till Christmastime!  I will be done with finals and I get to take one of my bi-annual visits home to MN.  The holidays always make me miss my family.

Have a good one!
