My Shoe Collection...

A lot of people have been asking me to write a about post about my shoe collection, AND NOW HERE IT IS! Shoes have to be my favorite accessories because they can really make or break an outfit. A simple all black outfit can really stand out because of a colorful, quirky pair of shoes. On the other hand, an amazing outfit can go horribly wrong with a pair of Uggs. So needless to say, I have a lot of shoes because I love them so much and I wanted to share some of them with you all. I hope you enjoy! 

These are my black wedges from Topshop that I bought pretty recently. In the past month I have worn them around 10 times so it's pretty easy for me to say that they have become my favorite pair of heels. 

 I bought these Elizabeth and James shoes at Intermix. They are a suede bootie with some elite. They are really edgy but the elite makes them elegant and girly. Despite the crazy wooden heel they are pretty easy to walk in. 

 These Lanvin shoes from Barney's are my baby. They are beautiful and sophisticated, these are my first pair of "big girl shoes." These will stay in my closet forever and ever.

These grey sandals are Elizabeth and James and I bought them last spring at Nordstroms. These shoes are my go-to shoes for going out. They go with everything and are super comfortable. 

This pair of Converse are my favorite pair of shoes that I have in my closet. They used to be high-tops but then I got bored of them and cut them down to, as my friends say, mid-tops. I sewed the word "luck" to the side of them to make them more personal, but on the other hand, who doesn't want to have "luck" constantly at their feet. People use Sharpie markers to personalize their Converse, I use some scissors and a spool of thread. 

Miami Vice...

Once again, I'm dreaming about warm weather, summer, and the beach. 
So of course I go and torture myself by looking at all these amazing swimsuits on Urban Outfitters. 
I especially love the top of the last bikini. 
It's so original and because it flows away from the body it would look good on almost anyone.
 If any of you guys know of any great sites to buy swimsuits from I would love to know about them,
 so just post them in the comments!

One Skirt Three Ways...

I just bought this amazing skirt at Topshop this week and I love it so much I decided to share it with all of you! This skirt has a crazy print and I think that some people might be intimated to wear it and therefore just pair it with a black tee and black pumps. But this skirt has so much more potential than that! So, I decided to show you three ways to wear it. 

This outfit you could wear to work or school. I paired the skirt with a light blue silk button down and nude heels by Lanvin. The light colors tone down the skirt but still keep it fun without going nuts.

  This look is my daytime, going out to lunch and shopping look. This look includes an Ella Moss grey and neon lace tee, a bag from Zara, and Dolce Vita booties from Nasty Gal. The tee shirt definitely tones down the look making it an appropriate daytime outfit. But the neon colors still keep it exciting and trendy.

This is my nigh time outfit, which I paired with a black fringe crop top from Forever 21, Marc Jacobs studded clutch, and leopard print heels. This look is fun and edgy and perfect going out look. The mix of prints adds another dimension but the black purse and shirt keeps it elegant.

I'm going to The Bahamas with all my best friends for spring break this march and all I keep thinking about is what I'm going to wear. So obviously I've been on Nasty Gal like crazy this past couple of weeks so, I though I would share with you some of the pieces I've been dying to get. Let me know what you think about them and which pieces I should get!

Hey Everyone! I know that I haven't blogged in such a long time but I'm ready to start the new year off right and start blogging again.
