A statement shoe works in much the same way as a statement necklace: throw it on with easy basics and, voilà, instant outfit.

This morning I overslept by about an hour, and left myself with 20 minutes to get dressed and haul my groggy behind to work. Seeing as how I spent 15 of that 20 minutes sleepy drunk in a hot shower — I know, so not green — I didn’t have much time for primping. Enter tinted moisturizer and crazy lady up-do (which is looking way crazier in that top photo; thanks a million windy weather) and a frantically pulled ensemble of skinnies and a button-down. Original. My new coral patent penny saved the day by adding a pop of color to spice things up.

  1. Those shoes are so cute — I love the coral-y orange color. I’ve been a fan of the crazy-running-late updo lately too, which is why I’ve been taking my showers at night to get more zzz’s in the morning :) You look so chic and pretty!

  2. OMG! I did the same thing. Simple basic and my penny loftier shoes in green (very similar to yours I might add). Instant style (or at least that’s what I’m telling myself.

  3. I take the most ridiculously long showers, I’m always so tired! But those jeans look nice for a target sale! And those shoes are an eye catcher, and so cute. Lovely outfit :)

  4. Thanks a million for the scarf tutorial, btw. I am loving everything you are wearing lately. First I wish I had a casual job so I could really take the inspiration to heart. And second, I wish you could post ten outfits a day so I had something style-related to think about all day! Keep up the good work.
