Shoes, Beautiful Shoes!

I have shoes on the brain right now and all these beauties at Loeffler Randall are catching my eye big time. Every season their shop lights up like a dreamy candy store with new designs. I’m currently cuckoo for the silver, the navy metallic, the rose gold, the navy suede, the black suede, the leopard, and all the velvet. Here is a mix of things currently in the shop which are Summer 2017, Pre-Fall 2017, and Fall 2017. They are so versatile and each season seems to be able to stretch into more seasons depending on where you live. I have three pairs I’ve purchased over the past few years and I love them all, wear them all the time, and they are holding up really well. I’ll link each pair below and you can find more HERE. P.S.

Nordy’s Big One: Clothing Picks

I did some deep dives into the big Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and came up with some picks in a few categories that caught my eye. Make sure to check out my Beauty Sale Picks from earlier this morning. Honestly, lot of what is offered in big department store sales is a miss for me — mostly because of copious amounts of synthetic fibers — but I’ve found some scores from Nordstrom in the past, so it’s been worth it to take that dive. Here are my top clothing picks and you can find more sale items HERE.

Elizabeth Suzann: The Structured Mule

Oh, HELLO. I’m so excited to see these new Structured Mules from one of my forever faves Elizabeth Suzann. I love a quick summer shoe that you can slip on and run — and I have never been a flip-flop girl (A strap between my toes is just a big nope for me. And that slappy sound! Ha.). I love both mule colors, Fawn and Onyx, but I’m leaning towards the Fawn right now. I really love how the fawn shade looks with the navy silk dress! I’m thinking they’d be really lovely with my Silk Artist Dress and everything else in my wardrobe, really. More HERE.
