Matching shoes and bag

Back in the day shoes and bags had to match, however
that is no longer the case.

My Michelle polka dot vintage dress - H&M mint cardigan - White stretch belt vintage -
 BCBG Generation blue wedges - Blue bag Zara


In fact if you look around, the odds are
that nothing matches anything ;)

While putting together this outfit, 
I was happily surprised to find that I have a 
blue bag and blue shoes that match perfectly !



The shoes were purchased in TJ Maxx in Albuquerque last year 
and the bag in Washington DC the year before.



Wearing them together made me feel so 80's.



I loved the 80's.

this is such a wonderful look. I love the color of the dress with the different shades of blues...especially the mint! This look reminds me of the Pretty Woman movie where Julia Robert's character has a makeover and wears a similar dress. =)
so pretty!

Really like the brown polka dot dress with the mint cardi and blue shoes and bag! :)

Sometimes I like matching my shoes and bags together, but most of the time I don't. I have more colours in bags that I have in shoes, so don't always have the option anyway, haha! :)

A lovely relaxed look. I am a child of the 80s.
I turned 14 in 1980 and ended up getting married in 1989 so it was the decade of my coming of age.

I think matching shoes with your purse still looks very chic! Especially with a lovely shade of blue like the shoes and purse you are wearing here. Love this outfit on you, so pretty!

I love the 80s and I never even lived in them. You look so adorable. That mint cardigan is so preppy and cute! And the bag is just darling. I think it's totally okay to match your shoes and bag.

May the force be with you.
