One of my favorite things of all time is a vibrant sunset over water. The gradations of deeps blues, oranges and yellows can be so breathtaking on a particularly colorful evening! There was even a period in college where I was notorious for developing film roll after film roll of mediocre ocean sunset photography.
The love of those colors commingling has stuck with me, and was an inspiration for the color pairing here. Gradations of blue from sea foam, to turquoise, to navy, mixed with vibrant orange make me think back to what was literally the most beautiful sunset I ever saw, on the cliffs just north of Santa Barbara. I wonder if I still have the negatives from the photos I took that evevning…
I’ve been feeling a bit allergic to color these days, so putting this together was a nice little shock to my system. These shoes were a recent sale acquisition and in my current mood towards color, they felt a bit jarring to my senses. I considered returning them but then I remembered…there’s always room for a pop-of-color shoe in my closest! What was I thinking?
I hope you are all enjoying your summer and keeping cool out there!
