You can never have too many shoes. My husband may disagree with me on that, but it seems every time I find the perfect pair I’ve been neeeeding, another pair comes along and reminds me that I need them too.
One such shoe I’ve been on the hunt for is a pointy toe flat. But it had to be the perfect pointy toe with no extra embellishments on the shoe. So you can imagine how excited I was when I was browsing the new Prabal Gurung collection for Target and found these beautiful yellow flats. The color has be itching for Spring. I’m so ready to wear bright colors and floral everything again! These also come in black and a bright striped print AND they’re extremely inexpensive. Don’t wake me if I’m dreaming!
I stumbled across these black and white heels this weekend while I was out shopping at Kohls, and with the black and white combo being so in right now (not to mention, their pointy toe, which as if it hasn’t become clear by now, I’m totally obsessed with at the moment) they are truly too perfect to pass up.
And finally, I was on Threadsense today looking through their Back In Stock section, and I was so excited to see these ankle boots were back. I was kicking myself for not buying them the first time I saw them. That light brown color is perfection.
And on to the grand finale! My perfect holiday outfit! Not to say I wouldn’t pick any of the other shoes, jewels, purses and dresses I’ve posted about this week. Let’s be honest, if I had it my way, I’d own every single item…and then some.
This has been a ton of fun for me to pick my party favorites and I hope you’ve enjoyed it too! Here’s wishing every single one of you a very Merry Christmas, a very Happy New Year, and all the luck and happiness in the world for your 2013!
Happy December! Admist the shopping, and wrapping, and cooking, and driving over this holiday season, don’t forget about the parties you ultimately need to be decked to the nines for! There’s never a better time to sparkle and shine than Christmas and New Year’s! So I’m doing a whole week of the perfect pieces to add to your outfit. Starting with shoes. It is Shoesday Tuesday, afterall!
I started pulling together some items that have caught my eye the past few days while online browsing, and without even trying, I realized they all go together! I’m so in love with warmer colors for Fall. This reminds me of cooler weather, Dallas (since that’s where I’m from), lunch with girlfriends, afternoon cocktails, a walk in the park…so very classy and serene.
Enjoy your weekend!
I looove to mix neutrals. Especially in the Fall (and it’s sooo close!). Give me a gray sweater, black tights, and brown boots any day. So why wouldn’t I love mixing the color palette on shoes?? And bags too for that matter…but it’s Shoesday. Focus… :)
PS. Number 2 is majorly reduced in price (there’s a coupon code on the page to reduce them more, but only through the end of today). So snatch those up quick! And number 4 & 5
need WILL be mine asap. Sooo in love!
I have always been (and always will be) obsessed with pastels. But for the past month, I’ve been especially gravitating toward pastel purples like lilacs and lavenders. And can you blame me?? Look at all the pretty purple goodness up there. I’m dying over that Lulu’s dress. I must make it mine asap. I did get the shorts though! They came in the mail Tuesday and are just as cute in person. Oh, and here’s the best part: they’re only $8! So if you like them, go grab you a pair before they’re gone!
I got little bit of happy in the mail this weekend…
New H&M bubble gum pink pumps from 1 bestie…
You can find them here.
Speaking of H&M…have you heard they will have online shopping for U.S. on their site this Fall?!! To say I’m excited would be an understatement…
And I made a little bit of happy for my other’s bestie’s birthday…
Here’s how I made them:
Nothing fancy for the batter. I just used a box of Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix (following the ingredients on the back). I then divided the batter evenly between 4 bowls and added neon gel food coloring. (Pink in one bowl, purple in the next, orange in the next, and teal in the last bowl) In my experience, I’ve found that gel food coloring works WAAAY better than normal food coloring! Once all the colors were mixed, I placed the liners in a cupcake tin, took an ice cream scoop and did a spoonful of pink, then a spoonful of purple. It should be about 2/3′s full. Then in another lined cupcake tin I did a spoonful of orange, and then a spoonful of teal. Baked at 350 for about 18 minutes.
While the cupcakes cooled, I put a healthy helping of frosting (Betty Crocker Fluffy White Frosting) in two different bowls. Added pink gel food color to one bowl, purple to the other. I put the bowls in the fridge for a few minutes to let it firm up a little that way it went on the cakes a little easier.
And then voila! This cake batter makes yummy cake all by itself, but I’m a firm believer that pretty bright colors makes EVERYTHING better.
I’m baaack! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged due to vacation, moving, birthdays(including mine yay!), etc…it’s been a bit busy to say the least. But I’m back, and more fashion obsessed than ever.
So this week during my daily online browsing, I’ve been lusting over lulus.com items more than ever before. There’s always a few items I want badly from their store, but this week in particular, there’s just a bazillion pieces that I’m finding it hard to live without. At the moment, I’m all about little white dresses, bright colors, and neutral/neon combos, so these are my 8 reasons you should visit their store today. Happy shopping!
I don’t know just yet how I feel about these heel-less shoes, but I am intrigued by them. I love that they are totally unique, but I’m pretty sure if I tried to wear a pair, I’d fall flat on my face. Luckily, my bestie already bought a pair (the #2 Jeffrey Campbell’s below to be exact), so I’ll be able to borrow and test them out before I commit to buy! She will be wearing them this weekend, so pictures to come!
Jeffrey Campbell has a huge variety of this trend. I only chose two pair for this Shoesday, but there really are TONS of different styles and colors of heel-less shoes to choose from. However, they are on the pricier end, so I also included an alternative brand that’s a little less expensive.
I’ve been wanting a pair of polka dot shorts for sometime now, and in my opinion, polka dots are just begging to be worn with ruffles! And it’s a great outfit to accessorize casually for day, and then dress up for a night out.
