Matchy Matchy

For the rare moment in time when I ponder my relationship status and wonder, “why am I still single?” this photo alone answers the question.
Last week when I got ready for work, I suddenly like the combination of a minty green and red and then to match my shoes and purse, something I haven’t purposefully done since I was 13 and believed this to be an unspoken rule in dressing yourself.

    haha i love the top photo so much. too cute! once I wore pink shoes and had a pink purse, and I think I might have had a matching bracelet too, and this guy said ' you accessorize like a mo-fo'…but he like really swore it out and I was so taken aback I've never matched my purse and shoes since.

    Actually I think this first photo is the best photo of all time! I personally cannot believe that you are single–you little vixen you! This minty green top is so pretty. I have been mint obsessed (does that make me sound like that guy in the Shit Fashion Girls Say video or what?) for quite a while now. Love the red pumps too!

    Well, you are officially my fave fashion blogger that I follow. Between the tat, the crazy hair and that first pic – what's not to love! I don't know how I feel about the red+mint, but you're rockin' it nonetheless!
    Lovely post!

    Nah, that picture proves you're cool enough to deserve someone interesting and shouldn't just settle for any random guy.

    I remember having a discussion with my mom and her 3 sisters (ages 56 to 76) whether it was still okay to match shoes and purse or "not done". Conclusion: if you live long enough you see trends come and go so many times you learn to just do what you like. And I'll stick to that too πŸ™‚

    The first photo reminds me of Jim Carrey in "The Mask," but in the most flattering way possible. Seriously, though. This is one of my favorite shoots of you ever. Love the lighting and the teal & red. <3

    The top picture is exactly WHY I love you. You're so danged genuine all the time, so any boy would be foolish to not love that.
