The best part about clothes and shoes is that you can take on different styles and personas depending on what you wear. Something about these Zara Quilted Ankle Boots just scream sexy to me. Paired with all black everything, I’d be happy to circulate these into my closet.
Ugh, was knocked of my feet with some sort of stomach bug yesterday. I’m back, feeling better, ready to tackle this fall season. It feels like the start of a new school year. I’m feeling motivated, excited, and refreshed.
I pinned this image from Sea of Shoes awhile ago.
When I saw the animal print loafers at Gap, I was knew I would have to recreate the look. I love Gap jeans in general because they fit higher above the hips preventing the crack show when you bend over. Plus they just fit right and are usually the perfect length for me which is saying something because I’m 5’5″.
You guys. I’ve seriously been wearing these shoes every other day since I bought them. So comfortable, the perfect heel height and great transition to fall.
TOMS Desert Wedge Bootie – $89
I’ve been wearing them with jeans, a tank, and my MK watch every other day.
I’ve been thinking a lot about stacked wrist combos, they can be sassy, sweet, or rockstar. Over the weekend I was in Whistler and one of my friends was wearing this amaze wrap/bead bracelet. (She promised she would send a pic as soon as she gets her Etsy page off the ground, so we’ll have to hold her to it!) Last night I was perusing all my fave flash sale sites and then ventured to Nordstrom.com (I’m the poster child for spending less then 1 min per page), and happened onto the Kate Spade Accessories tab. As soon as I saw the Skinny Mini Bow Bangle, I knew I had to add it to my wishlist.
There are a bunch of different colors, I love the turquoise but also love the plain gold and silvers as well. This baby is def on the sweet side of stacked wrist.
Be still my heart. Keds shoes bring back glorious memories of elementary school and I’ve been considering a new pair over the past year or so, but this partnership with Kate Spade seals the deal.
Sizes are selling out quickly, but hopefully they’ll release more. Find them here.
It’s all in the details, complete with the wording ‘kick up your heels” along the ankle edge. $75.
Today, Kate Spade also launched their long awaited Saturday line, including a pair of canvas sneakers with a floral water color print.
How’s a girl to decide on her summer kicks with these fabulous choices?
I’ve been looking forward to the UPS Flea Market for a couple of weeks. I was cruising the list of featured vendors on the Puget Sound Women’s League Facebook page and was thrilled when I clicked through to the Atlas Past Etsy page. Based in Tacoma, she has an eye for matching textures and patterns. Can’t wait to see the bags in person tomorrow. Here are some of my faves:
Country Road Pleated Clutch – $38
Indian Summer Pleated Clutch – $38
My friend sent me the link to Astis Mittens today and I was instantly smitten. Obvi, I appreciate a brand who’s logo states “Stay warm, stay positive.” Warm hands always equal happy thoughts. I have a feeling that as soon as you slip your hands into that leather that is lined with moisture wicking polertec, they are instantly cozy. My favorite is the Sacagawea, the print reminds of Scandinavian art and the tan leather combined with greyish fur is so versatile. These babies are a splurge, but the Astis site promises your hands will stay toasty whether you are skiing deep in the backcountry or running errands around town and that they will last you for-ev-er.
Wearable art, I’m so in.
It was foggy for a solid week and then the rain came and it’s grey. This is the time of year, where all the stereotypes about Pacific Northwest weather are true. What I would give to soak up a little sun, to feel the warmth. Needless to say, I’m dreaming about summer. When I made my way over to the Sole Society page for the first time in awhile, I was delighted by all the new options. Animal print, boots, flats, heels, and these summer casual wedges.
The hard part is deciding which color I like more. Leg elongating nude or black with a tribal punch.
