Common Ground

My Love-to-Hate relationship with flats has been well-documented here, but I’m so excited to have finally found an equivalent I can agree with. . .oxfords. I don’t know how this trend slipped past me, but I’m glad I caught it in time to find a pair that I like.

The formal cut and laces make them feel more refined than a regular ballet flat and the crackled, metallic leather make them diverse enough to pair with most anything in my closet; dresses, skirts, jeans, trousers. Very exciting! Best of all, they were a gift :) The summer is looking good!!

Small Victories

There was a particular morning a few months back, when I awoke in the worst kind of funk. I dragged myself through the day, forcing a smile and willing myself to stay focused. Finally on the drive home, I glanced over at my phone- and realized that every single person that I hold near and dear, had reached out to me that day. I remembered that a co-worker treated me to lunch that afternoon and recalled that someone who played an integral part in a recent promotion, payed me a special visit just to say 'Hello'. It sometimes slips my mind to stop and look for the Blessings each day, but when I do- I'm never disappointed.

I rarely buy a garment or even an accessory without first picturing it with something I already own, but every once in awhile something slips through the cracks; these silver-detailed, cobalt suede pumps were one of them. It'll take some experimenting but I look forward to it-- the dress-up game is the best part.

Suit Yourself

Sorry darlings, I wouldn't dream of actually being photographed in any of these for the blog, so this haphazard arrangement will just have to do. Amazing how little it takes to start a collection, but I think us California girls get a pass when it comes to bikini's and cover-ups ;)

Little White Dress

It's quite possible that my little white dresses have outnumbered my little black dresses and that's fine by me. Don't get me wrong, those sexy dark numbers aren't going anywhere but I do find myself reaching for that light, bright, feminine look both day and night during these long summer days. I picked up the most recent (first photo) in the mad dash mentioned in my previous post and at $13.80, it was indeed a Fabulous Find!!
