Never Stop Adding to the Shoe Collection

Every woman has heard it- high heels are nothing but trouble. Deformed feet, back pain, and shortened calve muscles to name a few problems instigated by them.

But, as a 20-something woman I would gladly choose a day of aching feet and lower back pain to wear the beautiful stilettos and wedges gracing my closet. There is a sense of allure and excitement felt when you slip on pair of sky-high heels, ready to face the world.

Dressing up denim

What do neon yellow, geometric patterns, and denim have in common? They make for a fantastic outfit! Denim shirts are a staple for every closet. I personally own four, all of varying shades; ranging from dark wash with studs, to pale and lightweight.

For this particular outfit I used my medium washed Else denim button up and added a RACHEL Rachel Roy geometric skirt, both from Macy’s clearance last summer. The skirt is made of a thicker, sweater material, giving the outfit a relaxed feeling. You can always tell when a woman feels relaxed and comfortable in an outfit, it shines through.

Birthday Treat For My Feet

Today is my birthday, so I decided to treat myself to a new pair of shoes. A group of friends and I are heading to a local winery, Four Daughters, for a relaxed evening of good laughs, mouth-watering food, and amazing wine. It was obvious that a new pair of shoes was necessary.

I have been mourning over the price of the Valentino ‘Rockstud’ Pumps for months, disappointed they would never be attached to my feet. However, after late night browsing online, I stumbled upon a pair of similar heels from LuLu‘s. Their price was perfect for a small budget like mine, and they looked practically identical! I ALMOST prefer the LuLu’s pair over the Valentino because of the heel height. The higher the heel the better, as I always say.

It’s warming up… slowly!

The forecast for the week calls for mid-50s, this is weather I can handle. The snow piles have disappeared, leaving behind giant puddles and grey slush; perfect rain boot weather. Nevertheless, my feet have been dying to slip into a pair of sky high heels and strut about the city. I can finally dust off my heels and embrace the crop top trend.

I have slowly started transitioning out of my winter wardrobe. This was one of my last dark, wintery outfits before I reintroduced pastels and neons.

I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker color.

I have a thing for the color black, the perfect neutral. Add a bright pop of color or keep it monochromatic, it’s the easiest color. The way I see it, black is the new black.

This outfit was a simple transition from work to play, especially with the structured motorcycle jacket. I added small touches of gold in the accessories, another favorite staple color of mine.
