Friday Faves – Beautiful Ways To Wear Neutral Tones


I’ve been absolutely obsessed with wearing neutral tones lately, I love the easy and effortless vibe they create. My go-to hues for spring are tan, gray, white and blush. Their light, soft and feminine feel is beautiful to wear. Of course an easy way to add a little edge to your look is distressed denim, I adore the contrast of wearing really ‘pretty’ pieces with something ‘tough’.

There are some stunning pieces that have just come out for spring and today, I wanted to share my favorites with you. They’re also the perfect way to transition your style from winter to spring. Tell me girls, are you a fan of wearing neutral tones too?

Shoe of the Week – Kate Spade Dani Too Heels


For as long as I can remember, I’ve always adored glitter heels! There is something so fun, fabulous and feminine about them. It was love at first sight with these Kate Spade Dani Too Heels… aren’t they gorgeous? I love love love the rose gold glitter and the almond toe shape.

When people ask me, “what’s your favorite color?”, I often have to reply that it’s metallics! I just love gold and silver, they are the ultimate neutrals and work with everything – all while adding a touch of glamour!

I really believe unique, quality pieces are worth the investment and these beauties make the grade. Wondering what to wear them with? Girl, wear them with everything. Everywhere. Everyday. Dress up a cute jeans and simple tee combo with sparkle heels. Classic LBD? These rose gold Kate Spade Dani Too Heels are a perfect pairing. Add some personality to your work wear and slip these on, a pencil skirt suit never looked so chic!

You need to be warned though, you’re going to be constantly stopped with “Your shoes are gorgeous!” and “Ooooh, where did you get those heels?!”…

Fab Favorites Link Up – Falling for Blush Colors


Happy Friday! Can you believe January is already over? It’s happening again, last year flew by like lightening and I was hoping this year wouldn’t feel the same. Ugh!

One of my major obsessions this year has been blush colors. Whether it’s clothes, shoes, homewares or just a hint of blush in accessories, I adore it. Maybe because the vibe is all about love this month and Valentine’s Day is only a week away, I feel my color crush has grown even stronger.

If you’re also a lover of blush colors, I wanted to share a few of the pieces I already own and love… plus a few little things I have on my wish list! I always find a huge collection of stylish blush pieces here that I want too.

Tell me gals, do we share this color crush? What’s your favorite way to add a little blush to your life?

Shoe of the Week – Steve Madden Over The Knee Boots


Over-the-knee boots are major every year, but they can cost a fortune! However I must admit, I do think they’re worth the investment. I managed to snag a beautiful pair of Stuart Weitzman OTK boots at 50% off last year and have lived in them ever since. This season though, I’ve seen so many almost identical pairs and the leader of the pack is definitely these Steve Madden Over the Knee Boots.

If you haven’t already, get your hands on a pair of these beauties! Live in them the rest of winter and transition into spring by styling them with cute dresses. One thing is for sure, you’ll be back in them again come fall… I always look forward to pulling out my boots! Do you too? I find there’s something so chic about tall boots.

I’d love to know what you think of these? Are you an OTK boots girl, or more partial to a bootie?
