4 Spring Shoe Trends for Every Budget

March 13th, 2017 by

At one time, people were giving me shoe tchotchkes. (Yes, that’s how you spell that word. I looked it up!) Seriously. Little ceramic shoes and shoe place card holders and shoe coasters and shoe books and shoe soaps and even a shoe accent table. That’s when I knew I had a problem. Seriously, though, I […]

7 Simple (Affordable) Fall Fashion Updates

October 4th, 2016 by

I am not going to stop you from shopping. I’ll leave that to your accountant. Or your husband. Or that responsible shopping friend who always wonders, aloud, if you really need another pair of jeans. (Why yes. Yes, you do). My job is to show you the new stuff. And not all of it, either. That’s […]

How to Rock a Transitional Wardrobe

June 23rd, 2016 by

Okay, I’ll admit it. Transitional Wardrobes, and, frankly, capsule wardrobes of any kind can be a little, yawn…. especially for creative, spontaneous, former-impulse-shoppers like myself. If, like me, you’ve never met a frill or a bauble you didn’t adore, then the idea of the same 28 outfit combinations on repeat for 6 months can sound like […]

Best Boots for Fall (for Every Budget)

October 25th, 2015 by

I know I am in Florida, but why is it soooo hot in October. Why? I am over it. I want fall! Not serious, full-fledged, Midwestern-style fall, with parkas and babies bundled up in snowsuits. I’m not crazy. I know that I am extraordinarily wimpy and thin skinned. But how I long for it to feel […]

The 10 Best Sandals Under $50

June 28th, 2015 by

I have a confession. I married a man who likes comfortable shoes. It’s a chronic condition, and apparently there’s no cure. His mom told me he was pretty much born that way. His need for comfort pretty much informs all of his shoe-buying decisions, but it came to a head one night, when he decided he needed […]

10 Hot Shoes for Spring

March 4th, 2015 by

Just for a moment, allow me to take you to a very dark place, a place in which you are only allowed, for reasons beyond your control, to buy a single pair of shoes for spring. Scary, I know, but stay with me for a minute. To quote Glennon from Momastery, we are women, and we can do […]

How to Wear Flats with Everything

February 21st, 2015 by

“This is what I thought motherhood would look like,” I told my mom. (Well, minus the awkward baby holding, but otherwise, exactly like this). My mother glanced at the picture and literally spit out her tea. I think sometimes she wonders where I came from. These days, I would settle for a tiny part of this picture. […]

Buy Wildly Impractical Shoes: 30 Days to Gorgeous Mom Style

January 25th, 2015 by

For those of you who are counting, today is day 22 of my 30 Days to Gorgeous Mom Style Series, and this is the third post about shoes. Excessive? Perhaps. Obsessive. Certainly. And with good reason. Shoes are awesome. And awesome shoes are more awesome. (Yes, you can quote me on that!) And so while […]

12 Shoes Every Woman Should Own: 30 Days to Gorgeous Mom Style

January 11th, 2015 by

These days, I find myself buying fewer clothes and more shoes. Okay, that’s a lie. I’ve always bought lots of shoes. But now, I am seeing even more how important they are. Almost more important than clothes. Almost. A flawless pair of shoes can turn basics into an outfit, and with a well-edited shoe wardrobe, your […]
