Guest Post: work your closet.

Recently, I came across a fabulous fellow fashionista, Jamie Miller, author of the blog 'work your closet'. Jamie is a Cali native whose catchy tag-line is "if it's in your closet, it's in your budget". I love it! Inspired by fashion pages she comes across in her own advertising career, Jamie manages to find existing items in her closet and put together some adorably fresh outfits! When I saw the work your closet blog, I immediately thought--guest blogger! So here come some shoe-tips from the work your closet expert herself.

Work your closet. Work your shoes. Same thing! Sure you have a variety of shoes (what female doesn’t?) but it’s about how you can wear them differently. Holly so graciously asked me to do a shoe post, I of course was happy to oblige.

Pumps are one of my favorites. Nine West’s are so comfortable and the pointy toe elongates the leg. Get one in nude and one in black. They will become staples!
Strappy heels are fun – they let you show off bright toe nail polish and cool socks. Either way they make a fashion statement. On a budget, try Target!
Oxfords are so versatile. They have become one of my favorite pairs of shoes. Wear them with destroyed denim or a frilly dress. Once you break them in, they are like slippers. Try any Topshop style.

Ankle boots are so chic right now. The give any outfit some edge! I love mine from Macy's. I recently wore them with tights and cut off shorts--felt somewhat like a rock star!
Flats are also an awesome go-to. I prefer all my flats to either be a punch of color or have some sort detail. It’s a quick and easy way to pull an outfit together. My favorite red pair is from Payless.

Trend to try – clogs! They are back with vengeance. Bakers has great styles right now.

Now put on a cute dress with a pair of oxfords, or your strappy shoes with socks, or even embrace the clog movement; you’ll be glad you did.

Shoe closet love.

I will be the first to stand up and admit that I have a fabulous husband. Not only is he smart, funny, creative and patient, but he's pretty darned hot too! I still consider us newlyweds (and probably will for quite some time), because we're always doing thoroughly silly stuff for one another--keepin' things fresh, fun and surprising, ya know? Here's one of my fave pics of us, taken a few years ago during our engagement photoshoot. Good times.

That being said, I was still simply breath-taken when I came home from a way-too-long day of work and found that my sweet beau had used his furlough day (yes, it's not just a vicious rumor that we have those all over the place in the state of CA) to transform our hall coat closet into none other than a shoe closet. You heard me right...shoe closet = every girl's dream, ya? We don't really use our hall coat closet anyway, living in such a warm southern California city, so I was thrilled to actually put this space to som…

Cyber Monday. Get that stuff.

Cyber Monday! The day when we are all glued to our phones and laptops, listening to that joyous "ding" every 10 seconds when a new email offer comes through. Let's face it, it drives us mad, but we love it. Right?

This year, the deals seem undeniable and I am snagging every one that my bank account will possibly allow! From gifts for friends, gifts for kiddos, holiday party-wear, and even some adorable everyday shoes, here are some faves from today's Cyber spectacular sales:

It's hard to find a good Anthro sale on regular priced items. I managed to snag this long leopard blazer during the 30% off Black Friday sale, but if you haven't snatched up an Anthro item (tons of great gifts, by the way!), now is your chance. The site is 20% off for Cyber Monday, with free shipping on orders over $100. Doooo iiiiit.

Everyday sneakers that are stylish and femme make the perfect gift for yourself or your BFF. If you're a mama on the go like me, then a solid pair of sn…

Lazy days

It's the end of the week, I'm slowly unpacking from my week-long vacation to my hometown and family, and utterly enjoying my last few days off. Not only have I managed to eat 3 large meals a day everyday this last week, but I also have developed a terrible addiction to words with friends on my iPhone. Help me! Ahhh, but it's days like this that I just wanna curl up with a good book + some of my favorite high heels for fashion inspiration...
