Dressed Up "High-Tops"

Angie's post on dressing up high-tops inspired this outfit. These booties are the closest I have to high-tops. Do they look ok?
I like the color combination of turquoise and olive and want to use it or navy and olive for 'hot autumn'. That means looking for a summer silky top with a print of olive and navy or turquoise or all three.
I appreciate all comments and also your suggestions for improvement. I have a small square silk scarf with a better color match for the bag, but this scarf looked more like the inspiration photo.

    I like the booties and the color combinations, the scarf is very nice and you look gorgeous and elegant. You always inspired me with your outfits.

    YOU LOOK FABULOUS, Joy. I didn't know you could wear heels that high. 

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, Mirjana. I am thrilled to have inspired you!
    Angie, these are on probation because of the heels and that's the reason I am not wearing them to the zoo. They are comfortable enough otherwise. I had on silverish shoe goggles when I bought them. The heel is not as high as it looks but still the highest I own.

    Very unexpected color combination but it works. Olive and turquoise - I have to try that.

    Anchie, I would not have thought to put these colors together but it was love as soon as I saw the combination on Angie's blog post. They make me happy and blend well with my greys and silvers. For an early Mass today I wore a charcoal trench over the outfit.

    Lovely. What an amazing colour combination. I am going to log that into the memory bank.

    You look wonderful! I really like the color combination.

    Joy, this is a great colour combination but I bet Con high tops would really rock the look. I think you could do it too, because the white toe cap,would 'book end' with your hair.

    Don't let the flat footbed put you off the shoe style. With a good insert they can be super comfy.

    Thank you Firecracker, JAileen, Bonnie, Brooklyn, Sarah and Runcarla for your helpful comments. Runcarla, what is putting me off with the Cons is the laces. I do have a low pair with no laces that I wear. A back injury has given me a glimpse of what the future probably holds...not able to bend over and deal with laces. I can deal with them now so maybe I should take a chance. I wish that they came in a tomatoe red. The red ones I see are more of a cherry.. That is a good point about the white toe cap. I will point it out to DS next time he laughs at me in Cons. I use inserts for comfort. My feet are too boney for comfort without padding.

    Oh this is really great. The colours are really good, just like the inspiration ensemble.

    Lovely! Great colours! I love the scarf especially.

    Nice outfit! I love the way the colors work together and the booties look great with it.

    Thanks to everyone who comments. I find it very helpful to know what you are seeing.
    K, my no-lace Cons don't even have laces but have hidden elastic panels. I have wondered if using those curly laces would work. I need to have the shoe stay on but no pressure on top of the foot.
