Do you ever find something totally funky and cool that you love, but that goes against all the fashion rules, the style uniforms and the “it” whatevers? Over the past few months I have been Pinning like crazy to my “Style Uniform” board and it’s full of neutrals like black, navy, and greys. Subdued colors that speak to a casual, adult sophistication. But if you go far enough back to my very early pins, you see super fun pops of color, designs and patterns. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my neutrals and am still planning on building a close around it. But I have also been falling in love again with my crazy pieces – those weird, so ugly they are cool, pieces that truly turn your wardrobe into a conversation piece. These mules, purchased for Gen. Co., totally fit that bill, like so many of the other fun and funky pieces I have bought lately. They add a bit of personality and are, just maybe, causing me to rethinki my own style uniform.
