As I was looking over this outfit and writing up the entry in my head, I had an epiphany.  Just a warning that it is a pretty superficial realization (sorry...) and of no importance.  I realized that the color of my purse and pumps are the colors of the those Pop Rocks candy!  More specifically the grape and strawberry flavor!  Have you ever been afraid to eat Pop Rocks and then drink Coke immediately after because you were told you would explode?  And that Mountain Dew was actually horse pee?  Once I was able to read ingredients off the cans I knew the second one was fake but I honestly believed the Pop Rocks+Coke for a bit until it got debunked in 7th grade science.  If you were curious, here is a clip that explains why it won't happen.  Explosion or not, they are still fun to eat.  And that is the exciting story behind how I came up with my post title.  Cool story, bro.

I feel that candy-colored accessories are a perfect way to spruce up a grey/white outfit - actually any colored accessories.  Since I kept my necklace/watch silver, I introduced two different colors through my shoes and bags to add more variety and avoid being too matchy.
