2016 TB Minnie flats update

Here we are in the 5th month of 2016!  Where did the time go?  After a seemingly nonexistent Winter in Calgary and a warm Spring spent mostly in Arizona for a total of 5 weeks in March and then again in April, we are also experiencing a warmer than normal Spring in Calgary.  But I’m sure you’re not here for a weather recap of the first 5 months of 2016.  Lets move onto something more fun my friends.  That being my 2016 TB Minnie travel flats collection update.
 
2016  started off very slow in the flats department.  My first pair wasn’t purchased till March 3rd while on vacation in Arizona.  I tried these Shiraz coloured Minnie’s on last November at the TB Boutique in Scottsdale but passed on them at the time.  There was no way I was going to pass on them this trip.  YAY!  My first pair of Tory’s for 2016.

My next pair you’ve already seen in my last post.  They are the pearlized gold Minnie’s I bought during the first week of my April Arizona vacation.  Again from TB Scottsdale.

Next was a pair I’d had my eye on since I first saw them on the TB website in 2015.  They were the patent Olive coloured Minnie’ s.  These were an on-line item only and never in the TB boutiques.  I was worried the colour might be slightly different  than the picture on the website but had my TB SA order them any ways.  The Olive colour itself is either one you’ll go “ohhh lovely”  or go “OMG I wanna puke!”  When I went to the boutique to pick them up I was happy!  The colour match the website picture perfect.

Feeling my allowable Tory budget for this trip still had plenty room for another pair I looked at a couple other colours that caught my eye.  I liked the patent Emerald green and the patent Chicory blue.  While trying the Chicory blue (baby blue) ones on I looked down at them on my feet then looked to my TB SA and said.  OMG are these ever bright.  I slid the blue one off and tried on the Emerald green.  Sold!

The more I convince myself the Chicory blue ones weren’t a good colour for me, the more I wanted them.  Trying the baby blue coloured Minnie’s on in the boutique had the same feel as wearing pink flats or bright yellow flats.  They scream feminine.  As you likely know I have both a pink pair and a yellow pair of Tory’s.  I guess I can scream away in a blue pair also.

To increase the “fab” factor I paired them with white pants.
