Fall Shoe Shopping

I did some serious Fall shopping a couple of weeks ago, included in that spree was some shoe shopping. Β I went to Mandees; I hadn’t been there in a while, but they are always good for finding fabulous, and affordable shoes! Lucky for me, they were having a buy one, get one half off sale, so I decided to stock up for the season!

Let me start by sharing some depressing news…lately I’ve been having a harder time wearing heels, my feet just don’t enjoy them like they used to *MAJOR SIGH*. Not only do heels feel sexier and more fun than flats, but they give me an extra few inches to my already miniature 5′ .5″ self. While I’m not swearing them off altogether, I decided it was time to invest in some comfortable flats.

Fortunately, I found a few adorable pairs:

A simple brown suede
Black and gold alligator-esque shoes
Blue suede! I have actually been dying for a pair of blue suede shoes for a while!

Obviously during a BOGO, I couldn’t ignore the heels! So I picked up a few pairs that will serve me well.

Nude pumps- awful lighting πŸ™
Black suede, double buckle Mary Jane-ish pumps. I am dying to pair these with black tights and a skirt ASAP!
Black pumps with a gold toe! I was drawn to these, I had to take them home with me πŸ˜‰

Naturally I had to peruse the accessories…

I snagged this blue Nine West clutch with optional chain link strap
…And this gold plated necklace…as my roomie would say my “Walk Like an Egyptian” necklace LOL

Mandees had so many great pumps, flats and boots! I need to get back ASAP and pick up a few other pairs I had been eyeing… something about taking multiple trips to the same store, and making multiple purchases makes spending money not as bad.

What are you wearing on your feet this season? Let me know where you found some great Fall shoes!

PS: For the mani lovers, here are my most recent:

Started with Gelish “Skinny Vanilla Latte”…
…it was too light for the season so I ended up putting a couple coats of Gelish “Black Cherry Berry” on top πŸ™‚

I just changed my polish color this afternoon…stay tuned for that pic! πŸ˜‰

Pop of Patriotic Color

I work full time for a PR & Marketing agency, luckily we don’t have to wear suits or full blown business attire everyday, but we can’t get too crazy, so I’m always trying to mix casual, professional, and fashionable by adding a pop of color or fun accessories to my outfits! The other day I had a nice combination, which left me feeling somewhat patriotic; check it out…

Baby blue gap sweater & grey slacks with pops of red πŸ™‚ (I also match our garbage can... lol)
Red snakeskin watch with small diamond details, and a red woven belt.
These cutesy, victorian, girly Manolo Blahnik heels that my boss snagged for me at a tent sale πŸ™‚
The heel is super short and they're incredibly comfortable πŸ™‚
Simple hair and makeup (obviously I had time to do my hair this morning ;)), my Bare Minerals READY eye shadow palette has been my go to lately. And of course...pink lips! πŸ˜‰
Always have to end with a shot of the mani! I've been rocking a Gelish french manicure all week πŸ˜‰

How do you try to mix fun & color into your work wardrobe?

Bringing My Wardrobe to Life!

I am completely guilty of having a pretty dull wardrobe- lots of grey and black! With this recent Spring/Summer weather we’ve been having I decided it was time to step it up! I told myself that from here on out, when shopping, Β I would ONLY buy colorful clothes. I put my maxxinista skills to work at Marshalls, TJ’s, some consignment spots, Forever 21, and H&M over the past few weeks.

Here are some of my recent, *colorful* purchases…

I've been on the hunt for colorful skinny jeans and I've finally found the best pairs of fuchsia and peach! Only yellow and green left πŸ™‚

New shoes! πŸ™‚

A pair of camel suede slingback Guess heels ($22 at Marshalls!), and a brand new pair of gold cork Charlotte Russe wedges (on sale for $10).

Lots of chunky new necklaces…

A new bag, belts and hair accessories…

Head band $2.80 Forever 21, Bag $15.50 Forever 21, Nude/Orange belt $3.50 H&M, Red belt $2.50 Forever 21

I wore this new beautiful fuchsia dress with a beaded gold necklace to a recent work event.

Forever 21 dress- I think it was only $15!

I’ve even started to break out my spring polishes!

New "Gelish" colors! Left: "Sugar N' Spice and Everything Nice" Right: "You're So Sweet You're Giving Me a Toothache"

I’m currently wearing this pastel blue color, I’m loving it!

Forever 21 Polish- No name :-/

How does your wardrobe and shopping habits change when the weather warms up?
