Memories In Milan

Happy Monday! 🙂

Last night, we returned to Florence after a week of some traveling. We went to quite a few places, and I *hope* to get photos from each destination up over the next couple of weeks.

Today, I wanted to share some photos from our first stop of the week…Milan. 🙂

Class Meets Comfort: The Kitten Heel

As a short girl, barely breaking 5 feet, I’ve always loved being able to wear high heels. In high school, college, and post-grad, I would more often than not, be found in a comfortable pair of wedges, boots, clogs, booties, pumps, heck, even platform sneakers for a quick bit there. I loved being able to add those few extra inches!

About a year ago, I was SO sick of my high heels – they suddenly became really uncomfortable for everyday and I needed an alternative. Insert, the kitten heel.

Fall Shoe Shopping

I did some serious Fall shopping a couple of weeks ago, included in that spree was some shoe shopping.  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 🙁
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 😉

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 🙂

I just changed my polish color this afternoon…stay tuned for that pic! 😉

XOXO
