Mustard yellow is one of the colours I have absolutely embraced this year (along with more red!), it was high-time it spilt over into my shoe collection. Two ways to style a statement coloured pump heel.
CONFESSIONS OF A SHOE LOVER
Recently, I decided to at long last fix up my shoe collection. I had half of my shoes nicely on display on a bookshelf, while the other half were piling up on top of one another at the bottom of my wardrobe. It felt awful each time I dove in to find them misshapen, squished, tangled and getting dirty. Entirely first world issues, I know, but I am a shoe lover and it is where a large majority of my fashion investments go. So I reconfigured my little office space- which doubles as my wardrobe, to fit another shoe shelf.
Looking at my shoe collection all together I soon realised that probably about 85% of my shoes were black. Naturally, I fall on picking black shoes because I know they will go with everything. However, this can get a little predictable, right?
Enter the statement coloured pump heel.
EXTRAORDINARY ORDINARY DAY – STATEMENT COLOURED PUMP HEEL
I found this beautiful soft leather mustard yellow pair of pumps from Australian luxury shoe designer EOD (Extraordinary Ordinary Day). These were the perfect minimal statement pump shoe to brighten up my collection. The soft leather quality, one of a kind shape and heel are just beyond beautiful.
LOOK ONE: THE SPRING RACES READY LOOK
In Australia, we are right in the middle of the spring racing carnival. If you aren’t familiar, this is the annual horse racing season (see more about it here), which for many people exists to give an excuse to dress up a little, don a nice hat and celebrate the day.
This year, I wanted to share a light look inspired by my visit to Seville. Pairing linen, an Andalusian style hat, my statement coloured pump heels with a drop pearl necklace. The look is fresh, modern and breezy.
Don’t be afraid to wear colour, it will make you happy. To keep it simple, start with one feature colour to make a statement.

LOOK TWO: EVERY DAY STYLE
My true everyday style, pairing my straight leg jeans with a basic white tee and long-line vest.
If you start with well-fitted quality essentials, it doesn’t take a whole lot to elevate your style.
Keeping the rest of my palette neutral (denim is neutral after all), matching my leather watch and shoes in a statement colour gives the whole look a new lease on life.
