Shop My Look: Flowers & Wedges

Love this floral dress and wedge combination. Something about it feels 70s but contemporary at the same time. It's a simple combo to make a gorgeous breezy day, perfectly stylish!

 
{Dress: Lucca Couture, Belt: F21, Wedges: Zara}

Pursuit of Shoes Tip: Pairing nude hued heels & wedges with a dress that accentuates the waist, will make your legs look a million miles long. Seriously, I'm only 5'3!

Weekend Pics

Happy Memorial Day! I'm spending the day window shopping in Santa Monica and then off to the  parent's house to celebrate my little sister's 9th birthday.  The past couple days have been very relaxing but productive. I'm trying to get caught up on life before the craziness that is June and July start. Here are some pics:

Saturday I went to Crewcuts to get my sister's bday present. They have the most adorable pieces! I also spotted these pretty flats at J. Crew.

Grabbed a striped tee and sea-foam green ballet flats from Gap. They are having 40% off the whole store through today! The color palette just happened to work perfectly with my new Kate Spade wallet that greeted me at my door step on Friday evening.

Sunday I did a lot of blog admin stuff and went for a relaxing hike at Runyon Canyon. This is the view from the top. I love LA!

 
ban.do shoe clips arrived in the mail- so cute! Keep an eye out for a giveaway coming soon.


Lots of fun to look forward to over the next couple weeks: band.do giveaway, MTV Movie Award red carpet pics, inside my shoe closet video and more!!

Shoe Inspiration

I have to admit, I absolutely love The Coveteur:

The Coveteur takes you inside the closets of internationally influential cultural forecasters, showing us what culminates in their personal style - one item at a time.


Their photography, especially the way they shoot shoes, is so extraordinary and out of the box. Such amazing inspiration! Look at these lovelies:

Happy Monday! I enjoyed a fun-filled weekend with all the people I love + did a little window shoe shopping:

Friday night we had a ladies' night in Hollywood. Kept it classy with some bubbly!

Love group shoe pics. (B managed to sneak in with his sneakers!)

Saturday my brother & sister were confirmed. Mom put together an amazing celebration dinner, including this scrumptious appetizer platter. 

Spotted fab Sam Edelman wedges at Nordis on Sunday.

Also, found these summer-tastic raffia heels. Can you believe they're from Aldo?

Friday Eye Candy

TGIF! Spotted these lovelies a few weeks ago and can't get them out of my head:




{Giuseppe Zanotti Peep Toe Raffia Wedge}

{Giuseppe Zanotti Ankle Wrap Raffia Wedge}

Lately, I want every shoe that has Raffia detail. There is something so chic and summery about it. Add a 5 inch wedge and you have a gorgeous shoe!!!

Fringe Benefits

A little fringe goes a long way! Have you noticed all the tassels and fringe on this season's shoes? I just love how the detail adds a 70s boho feel.

{Dolce Vita Damita Sandal for $121}
The coral color and tassel combination make this the perfect summer sandal!

 Kind of battling a nasty cold/cough so the weekend was pretty uneventful. However, Sunday the boy and I spent the afternoon on Ventura Blvd. grabbing brunch and shopping:
Spotted these fab Schutz espadrille heels at Lush Shoe Boutique. They remind me of a Charlotte Olympia design and are coincidentally named 'Charlotte'.
