In The Fashionista's Closet: Miss Match

I was working on this outfit post of what I wore to church Sunday and read T Minus T Plus' post on "being matchy"  and wanted to give my input. I am a fan of contrasting colors, I typically like to wear two colors that don't 'go together' Here is what I put out to wear for church on Sunday:

BUT although I loved this color combo, I didn't wear it because frankly, these shoes hurt my feet and I didn't know how far I would have to park from my car into church. And there's nothing worse than not being able to walk cute because your feet hurt. You may think you're playing it off, but no. You just look like your feet hurt.

So instead I wore this:

Can we not discuss the poor quality of my picture taking skills because I have no tripod? Thanks.

Here's a close up of the shoes:

I loved them because they look like shoes for a doll

So as you can see I, not being a particular fan of the 'match' did in fact match my shoes to my dress although I didn't purchase them together and had no intention of wearing them at the same time. I also resisted the urge to carry my yellow bag and opted for black. So see friends, really it's all about your personal choice. No one was harmed in the matching of this outfit.

I don't like matchy matchy either. It doesn't show your personality. Love the ensemble.

Those shoes are super cute. And I don't think it's overly matchy b/c you've got the pattern on the shoes.
