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.
Not much more iconic in terms of french footwear then the Bensimon Sneaker. Perfect for spring and summer time and a little more practical for the PNW then Toms. Don’t get me wrong, I love Toms, they are my go to when the streets are dry and I know I can avoid puddles, but I need something with a rubber bottom when there is a chance of rain.
If you’re looking for a versatile and flattering summer sandal, look no further then the simply strappy heel. These babies can be paired with skinny jeans, tapered pants, shorts, and dresses of any length. Perfect if you’re schedule is already filling up with rehearsal dinners, birthday brunches, and backyard bbqs.
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.
There are certain rite of passage trips that every chick takes in their life. One of those is the quintessential Vegas Bachelorette Party (VBP) trip. One of my best friends is getting married in April, and I have the VBP coming up in a couple of months. I’ve been slowly acquiring necessary Vegas attire options including a new pair of Vegas shoes. There are a some things that Vegas shoes can pull off that most shoes cannot, including: extremely high heel, sparkles of any type, impossible to walk in, and cheap. When I found a pair of sequin 5″ heels at Target on clearance for $14.98, I knew I had struck a rose gold mine.
I got the opportunity to give my Vegas shoes a trial night out when I went down to visit R a couple weeks ago, who was training for work in Sin City. We decided to head to the strip for dinner and drinks. I confidently put these pink babies on and we headed for the elevator. I could tell that my new Vegas shoes and I were going to be duking it out all night from the first step into the hallway. The toe slopes up, so as I stepped, I wobbled forward, and almost ate it on the carpet. No biggie, they were brand new and still slippery on the bottom. We made it to the Bellagio and headed toward Olives. The floor of the Bellagio boasts concrete that has been pounded to look like cobblestone – greeeeat. I stayed close on Rory’s arm as we headed to the bar for a quick drink before our reservation and I started getting more comfortable in my shoes.
After dinner, we decided to walk toward the Cosmopolitan so I could check it out on the recommendation that it would be the perfect place to stay during the upcoming bach party. (I think they were right, a giant shoe in the lobby, bling and jewels everywhere, plus Marquee!) A bit more walking and I could feel a blister coming on in my Vegas shoes. Whatever though, nothing I can’t handle. We gambled a bit and decided to head for temporary hotel home. I walked out toward the taxi lineup and was near the safety of the car, when my Vegas heel clipped a crack in the pavement, and my toe lunged forward. I was going down! Luckily, Rory grabbed my arm, and saved me. Also, luckily, no one in Vegas is judging.
My feet were beat after the night in my cheap Vegas heels, but I still think they are perfect for the upcoming bachelorette party, as long as I can grab someone’s arm at any given time.
Um huuuuhWHAT? $28 from Old Navy? Did you say Old Navy? That was my reaction when I first saw these booties. Even at their full price of $30, these are a steal. With Faux-Animal print and texture, these babies are the perfect way to incorporate a little sass into your wardrobe.
Are you as blown away as I am?
P.S. I originally saw these on Le Catch, one of my favorite fashion blogs.
The loafer is the trendy flat right now, and I have to say, I hadn’t gotten on board, until I saw these on Gilt yesterday. The Delphi by DV by Dolce Vita, is the right about of sass paired with polish. Plus the price is right.
