Outfit Post: Turquoise and Yellow


It's finally sunny, warm, and dry enough today that I get to take my new Fluevogs for a spin!  My mom sent them to me for my birthday, and I love them.  They're super comfortable, with a sturdy heel and gorgeous cutwork, plus - they're turquoise.  I'd been obsessed with the idea of turquoise sandals ever since trying on a pair last summer, and I think these have the perfect retro vibe that I would be hard-pressed to find in a pair of shoes from DSW or the like.  Between these and my awesome yellow 'Vogs, I think I'm officially a Fluevog convert.

Pair 1.


Pair 2.

I think it's interesting that both pairs have a different heel, but a similar aesthetic.  The yellow Operettas remind me of vintage dishware, and these ones bring the Jetsons to mind - that particular early '60s take on what was futuristic and cool.


See that heel?  Totally space-age.  


Hopefully the weather stays warm enough to wear these all day, and we'll see how comfy they are while I work - my job involves a lot of walking up and down stairs, so that will be the ultimate test.
