Blue pumps! So simple, and the job is done! why haven’t I thought of it? Have you? Because I said this to myself when I stepped into the elevator in the morning at work and saw a girl wearing regular black trousers, white silk blouse with a pretty pussy bow. Kind of a standard office elegance.
But that wasn’t the part that spoke to me. It was the electric blue pumps, not any extra high heels, just the ones you would wear to work or for a drink:

It may be a radiant woolen scarf in winter or a statement belt in summer, added wisely to a regular toned outfit like camel coat or a simple beige minidress.
