The Long Road Ahead

It's a long road ahead especially having to walk it in these killer high-heel suede sandals from Steve Madden. Just kidding. Seriously though, these are one of my favorite heels. They come in many colors and obviously I got them in taupe. The suede is really great quality, per-usual. The fit is a bit small (so size up especially if you have wider feet) but they are very comfortable! The straps are thicker (and so sultry) therefore they won't fall down. There's a long road ahead, so choose your shoes wisely ;)

Who do you dress for?

They say women apparently dress to impress other women. I have to admit there is some truth to that. I remember spending hours in front of a mirror on Saturday nights with my girlfriends in mind as I was deciding what to wear. Not because I wanted to "out-do" my friends, but I wanted to make sure I dressed similar and not over or under dress. But honestly, the most genuine compliments I receive comes from women I don't know – not men. It makes sense as women are much more in the know when it comes to clothes, make-up and style, so it’s not a surprise that we go out to impress other women as opposed to men.

Summer with YMI Jeans

Chambray Dress c/o YMI 

As I look at these pictures I am reminded about how random our weather has been. We had a few weeks of 90 degree weather in March and now in July, I am having to wear OTK boots and faux leather jacket. Thank goodness for this easy-breezy super soft chambray dress which keeps me warm and cool all at the same time. Loving all of YMI Jeans products. Their prices are on point but the material are luxuriously soft. Like seriously cuddly soft.

My Most Embarrassing Zit Story + Giveaway

Getting a zit is bad but popping a zit can be as disastrous as the blemish itself... I remember my most embarrassing moment in my early 20's. It was the night before a big date with a guy I was swooning over and of course there was a huge pimple size of a moon right above to my lips. I should have listened to my mom's advice to never pick, gouge, pop, scratch or squeeze the damn zit. But I wanted it gone! The horrid I went through that evening trying all these ways to conceal it all but making it worse. The pimple not only came back bigger, but it left a scar for about a month. Someone even pointed it out at one point, thinking I had food on my lips. Yeah really embarrassing. But eventually, EVENTUALLY, it dried up and healed. Oh and that guy? My zit definitely lasted longer than him. The moral to this story? First, never pop a zit (especially not for a guy!); and second, always make sure to have good acne products, like Zapzyt, on hand.

Distressed, Lace-ups, and Cutouts All-Day Everyday

I am back!! Sorry I have been MIA but owning a business, running a blog,  working on my many other creative projects, and traveling - has my life in a whirlwind. Not complaining at all cause life is good :) As I am always on the go, I have always had problems finding the perfect chic and comfy shoes.  I am pretty tall (5'8") so any shoes over two inches makes my feet ache after a couple hours. Not these babies though. At 4.25 inches, I can rock them all day. I get so many compliments every time I wear them. Make sure you size up half a size because they run on the small side. Lucky for you, you can use Karmaloop coupon code and get 30% OFF these shoes and everything from that website! Speaking of sales, the jeans and coat is also on sale. Be sure to shop the whole look below and click on the coupon button to get discounts. Cause... "I want to pay full price" - said no one ever. Cheerio!

What To Wear To A Wedding That's Not A Dress

Tote c/o Lord & Taylor | Romper  C/MEO | Shoes (older c/o Koolaburra )

My fridge is covered with beautiful 'save the dates' and wedding invitations for this summer (Congrats Brett & Kristen, Jessica & Noel, Vanessa & Jeremy!). My mind is buzzing of what to wear but wedding dress codes come with a lot of stipulations — not too short, not too flashy, and please, please don't wear white (eggshell or cream!).  I want to look my best but I know I don't want to be that girl. You know, the one who showed up looking like a two-dollar hooker or worse, obviously trying to upstage the bride.
