My Favorite Wedges for Summer 2014

A great wedge is one of my favorite accessories during the summertime. You can change your casual summer dress from a  day outfit to a cute night outfit by dressing it up with a great pair of wedges! You can also wear a colorful top, white skinny jeans, and a pair of wedges for a dinner date.

I particularly like brown wedges (or neutral wedges) as you can tell from the picture below. But there are so many great neutral wedges that have a pop of color! For example, the ‘Emily 34 Aqua and Tan Platform Wedge Sandals from Lulu’s (#2). You can also experiment with several different types of wedges such as straw or cork.

In spirit of #FavoritesFriday, here are nine wedges that I think are fabulous for this summer…

Jan. 17: Favorites Friday Continued

I did two #FavoritesFriday today because I have so many new favorite things!! As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral. Neutral colors create the look of the ever so timeless animal print, therefore it must be a neutral right? Right. And I need these items right meow. Leopard is a great way to dress up a simple outfit, whether it’s in your shoes or your clothes.

Jan. 17: #FavoritesFriday

  • The Michael Kors ‘Double Printed Rochelle Knit African American Small Infinity Scarf’ (top left) from Michael Kors.
  • ‘Letting Leona Cutout Top’ (top right) from Tobi.
  • ‘Wild Woman Cardigan’ (bottom left) from Tobi.
  • Clark’s ‘Valley Lounge Loafers’ (bottom right) from Clarks USA.

Booties & Boots: Must-Haves for Fall

Boots and booties have been in style for as long as I can remember. They are the go-to for skinny jeans, leggings, skirts, and dresses…pretty much any fall or winter look! These are just a few of my favorite this fall:

Boots & Booties: Must-Haves

  • Knotted Fringe Booties from Anthropologie (top left)
  • Frye ‘Carson’ Wedge Booties
  • Chinese Laundry ‘Elise Laughter’ Booties from Nordstrom (bottom left)
  • Bamboo ‘Parksville 21’ Chesnut Brown Belted Riding Boots

I actually have the Bamboo ‘Parksville 21’ Chesnut Brown Belted Riding Boots! I bought them from a store in Oxford, Mississippi called My Favorite Shoes, which is pretty fitting because they are easily my favorite boots for this fall! They are high-knee and go great with all of my fall outfits!

Enjoy!

Nov.19, 2013: Trends To Try Tuesday

I’ll admit it, I’m no fashionista. I enjoy wearing simple styles and dressing it up with fun, colorful pieces of jewelry. If there’s one item I buy the most it’s jewelry. I unintentionally avoid patterns and, like most people, I simply cannot afford to buy every new and exciting trend.

However, I enjoy keeping up with new trends and I also enjoy trying new trends (if I’m brave enough!) Introducing, #TrendsToTryTuesday! I will post new trends whether it’s clothing, shoes, jewelry, etc. So if you’re a brave and adventurous fashionista, give these trends a try!

My Favorite Shoe Trends For Fall 2013

Some people think that once the weather gets cold you have to wear dark colors. I think that’s false. Just because the sun isn’t always shining and you’re not lounging by a pool in bright summer colors, doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to strictly be black. I think that you can be just as fun and colorful during the fall and winter months with your shoe choice! A pop of color can go a long way for an outfit. Whether it’s jewelry or a handbag, or even shoes, a pop of color can easily turn your drab winter outfit into something to remember! These shoes below are some of my personal favorites for this season. I think each of these shoes are classic and will stay classic.

The loafer has been around for a long time. J.Crew has stepped it up a notch with different materials such as calf hair, suede, fabric, and patent leather. These fun patterns and prints can be paired with skinny jeans and a simple, cute top and your shoes will pop! The black strap sandals from Steve Madden are perfect for a cocktail event or a date night with that special someone. My personal favorite are the gorgeous Michael Kors booties, perfect for a night out on the town or a special occasion.
