How to do a color pop- Teal Felted Flats from Urban

Teal Felt Pointed Flats- $3, BDG from Urban Outfitters. $18-20 at the store.

Well, it’s pretty simple, wear all neutrals and then ONE nice POP of color somewhere on your body. Scarf, earrings, bracelets, pants, etc. just one piece of a nice bold color. I like to do it in a nice flat, which is why I scooped these up immediately for $3 when I saw them at Goodwill on a half price Saturday. It was a ‘be still my beating heart moment’, for sure.

They are size 8, I am size 7 (or a child’s size 4/5 if the occasion and/or child’s shoe department calls for it), but thanks to some wide feet, sometimes I need bigger or at least can fit into a bigger size flat or heel because of my width. Flats and heels tend to run a little tight. So this is one of the times I am thankful for a little foot girth.

Thanks to it, I can have a fun teal color pop when I want.

Here I paired it with an all off white (key word ‘all’- no other color in the shirt to make a color pop work) and pair of skinny dark blue jeans, that have seen better days, if you ask me. But I loved these so much when I got them, it’s hard to accept they’re fading. (Jeans are neutral and not considered a ‘color’ for this method).

So…the only color on my body is a nice teal shoe. The eye is drawn there, and they are showcased, as they should be. They’re lovely, AND comfortable. And $3.

I don’t have earrings in, but if I did they would be a neutral. Possibly shiny, but no color.

I would also do this outfit with a black top as opposed to tan or off white, still a neutral/color-less technically.

So glad it’s becoming spring (at least here in TN) and I can start wearing my lovely flats again!!

Happy thrifting and popping,

-Jaime ❤

    Check out ‘best yellow pumps, trust me’ for another color pop example. Actually, it’s pretty much exactly the same, with a different shoe, but the shoe is worth a look at!! Trust me!! Haha 🙂
