Fall Trend You Think You Hate, But You Don't: Booties & Oxford Heels

I've been watching the new fall trends in the magazines and the shoeboot/bootie and oxford heel is a trend that definitely has me intrigued. I've always loved chunky, fun and eccentric shoes, so I know this is something I've gotta try.

Booties especially are such a dramatic look, I did some research online for how to be a funky fashionista in booties and here are some suggestions for how to successfully pull off this look:

- worn best with long tunic tops and skinny jeans and short dresses and tights
- also look great with the new menswear look popular this fall - tailor pants and vests
- if you have thick ankles or wide calves go for a style that is not too chunky or dainty
- don't hide them under long dresses or baggy pants - these shoes are to be noticed!

Here are a couple I think are fun enough to still feel fresh, but aren't too much for the office or date night/girl's night out.

Tory Burch 'Whitney' Bootie
Pura Lopez 'N255' Oxford
Betsey Johnson Terra Tie Pump

  1. Love these! If I weren't close to 6 ft tall, I'd want the lower two pair...

  2. Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
