Fashion Forward- Full Plate Living

Hi! I'm Kelly T. from Full Plate Living. I'm thrilled to be here to invade share with you at a la mode. I find so much inspiration here on Shelli's blog. Amazing blogs like a la mode have been challenging me to break out of my fashion little black box.

If you walk in my closet (please don't...or let me pick up the dirty socks first) you may think you forgot to turn the light on because of all the black you will see. So I'm here to challenge myself by arranging some outfits around color. Gasp!


I think these ballet flats are precious. If I saw them on someone out on the town I would totally want something like them for my closet. But, to be honest, I know if I saw them in the store, I would pass them up. My fear would be that I wouldn't get enough use out of them to warrant the cost. So here I go to prove myself wrong and use these little beauties with multiple looks.
