Old Navy -Basic Pump, Brown

Ciao a tutti!

My fellow Shoe-A-Holics, taking a break from the color wheel, I decided to follow Academichic's advice in their Fashion 101 series How to Combine Colors: Neutrals (with a Pop).  I've had these basic brown pumps for years, a friend of mine highly recommended them, but believe it or not, I was at a loss with what to wear with them; my style aesthetic had changed so much that they almost seemed too plain, or basic, to wear (in Italy of course).  That is until today!  When I changed my perspective on how I viewed these shoes, this brown-basic style became a neutral-novelty, and I could easily style them!

What makes neutrals so amazing is that they are comprised from a mixture of other colors, and because of this, neutrals can be considered a blank canvas in your wardrobe.  According to Academichic, "'Neutrals go with everything' including each other."  The post continues, "Neutrals can provide a softer look on their own, or serve as a background for another color. When pairing one "pop" of color with an all neutral palette, the neutrals allow the brighter color to add a wow-factor."

And 'Wow' I did!

Baci a tutti!

How I Styled It?
I received so many compliments on my outfit today, I just had to share!  I'll give credit where credit is due, and today, this outfit is courtesy of Old Navy.  The jacket, I reluctantly bought (several seasons ago), because my hubby liked the bell-sleeve design...(I didn't like it at first, but it has since grown on me).  The v-neck sweater dress, I caught recently for a bargain (in store).  It was marked down to less than $10 with an additional 30% off!  If you're thinking about buying it, size down!  The belt is from Forever 21and the bag is Bongo (both, several seasons ago).  The scarf is another of my market scarves!  SN
