Though I will forever love Boston’s cobblestone streets, they aren’t so fun to walk in! There have been countless times where I pack an extra pair of flats to exchange for my heels, especially when it has been a long day and this gal does not feel like walking..I am mean wobbling! When it comes to finding that perfect fit within a shoe, I look for a couple of things. Comfort is above all else. Being a dancer until I went to college, God blessed me with the aftermath of wide feet- so jealous of all my size 6 friends. Such a feature leaves it sometimes near to impossible to find a shoe I love style and comfort wise.

You’ll probably guess that style is a close second when it comes to my choice in shoes. Accessories have always been my favorite pieces of clothing to pick out, and shoes can be such a fun element to add to any style. I love keeping my shoes to neutrals, that’s why I fell in love with these Rockport Sling Boots! The leather khaki is perfect for transitioning into warmer temps, especially with the peep-toe. The sling-back and wedge style leaves no room for wobbling on those cobblestone streets, and the lining is created with foam- making these shoes super comfortable!

I paired my boots with my new favorite pair of jeans. The raw edge is a fun trend I have been seeing a lot these days and I have to say I am loving it! This top is so great for spring. The neckline gives a different look to all the off the shoulder tops I have been wearing lately. Also, mint is one of my favorite colors to play with during spring- it matches perfectly with my boots!

Things have been non-stop around here these days! I’ve been creating non-stop for SoWa, and I cannot wait to share with you all/meet you all in person when I start selling my Sparkle Studio designs every weekend between May-October. I hope you all have an amazing rest of the week!

BP Sweater // BP Cowl Neck Sweater //  Free People Scarf // Rebecca Minkoff Hat // Calson Fringe Scarf // Minnetonka Moccasin // Kate Spade Card Holder // Faux Leather Tote

I’m keeping with the “under $50” category again today to show you a round-up of my current favorite neutrals for fall! You all know I am a huge fan of neutrals at any season, but fall neutrals give me all the feels. I love starting off with a neutral sweater, and mix and matching other neutrals to make a cohesive outfit.

All the items above are under $50 and are all great fall basics! I also think some would be great Christmas gifts/stocking stuffers!

What are some of your favorite fall neutrals?

I hope you all have a great Thursday!

Fall Shoe Guide

Hello ladies! Fall shoe shopping has commenced, and I couldn’t be happier! I think my favorite aspect of fall is being able to dress up my feet with pretty boots, booties, and flats…oh and the fact that my feet stay warm all day!

To be honest, I love shoes, but not as much as other accessories. Most of the time, shoes are the last items I think of when planning an outfit… #guilty. I just always have been a handbag girl…finding that perfect bag to match all types of outfits. Lately though, I have been adding shoes to my collection that I love and know will go with a lot of outfits. That means I am loving the neutrals once again! That’s my one rule of thumb when trying to budget a new season’s wardrobe, find an affordable pair of shoes that will go with multiple outfits, that way you get your wear and money’s worth out of them!

Below I have rounded up some of my favorite pairs of shoes for this season. From over the knee boots, booties, and flats there are so many options this season to dress up your feet! Happy feet…I mean shopping!! 😉

TOP: Socialite // DENIM: J Brand // FLATS: Lucky Brand (on sale!!) // HANDBAG: Cesca // SUNGLASSES: BP (only $12!)

Happy Thursday! Let’s talk about trends. Though I am the type to stick to basics and neutrals, I love to pick up some pieces of the season’s go-to trends that I know can be worn after the trend ‘fades’ out. The cold shoulder trend has been seen a lot alongside the off the shoulder trend. Gotta love our shoulders ladies!

Below I have picked out a few cold shoulder tops that I think are great for summer. How do you all feel about the cold shoulder trend? I think it’s the perfect summer trend to combat all those hot summer day!
