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...

New Year's Pretties!

Every year, it always seems to be a dilemma--what the heck am I going to do for New Year's?! I have to say, it's gotten easier since I've gotten married. I no longer have the nervousness of looking for something to avoid sitting on the couch with only Ben & Jerry as my dates (although Phish Food is pretty amazing!). And I also don't have to worry about who to snag and kiss when the ball drops...always the dreaded thought of any single girl. Ah yes, but now my biggest dilemma is: 1) what the hubs and I do to ring in the new year, and 2) what shoes to wear to ring it in fabulously. After a little web-scouring, though, I think I've narrowed at least the shoes part down:

Vince Camuto also has some insanely chic crystal'd pumps on the scene right now--the 'Crane' pumps are a close 2nd on my top 3 list. Any color suede that Mr. Camuto offers in these babies are just right for me, although I do dig the black & teal duo for their individuality.

Enzo's 'Torrez' pumps are gorgeously feathered in all of the right ways. Sure, sure, they may be 5 inches tall (with a 1" platform), but I just figure it's good exercise for my calves.

Sam Edelman always brings it--but these scream "HAPPY 2012!" to me! I will say that I don't normally dig the spikey studs that Edelman has on a lot of his designs right now, but these are done tastefully. Yep, I'm talking about the 'Scarlett' pumps, in a beautiful peep-toe and t-strap. While $200 might be a bit steep for my post-Christmas wallet, I think I can manage to squeeze them into my shopping budget somehow!

So what's your favorite New Year's shoe? Hot hot heels or bunny slippers? Do tell!

TOMS for all occassions

Have I ever told you all how much I love TOMS shoes? I mean, I'm sure by now TOMS is old news to many of you - their "one for one" movement has taken communities by storm, with a cause worth buying for, that truly gives back. I, myself, own several pairs of TOMS, but when I got my sweet feet into a pair of their wedges recently, I fell in love! They are SO comfy, so fun and different than any of the other wedges in my closet, I really do adore them! And now with the new shiny, sparkly holiday collection that TOMS is sportin', I couldn't help but blog about it and spread the word. Check 'em, ladies:
These are a few of my faves - you can find all of the shiny styles here. And if it's TOMS wedges you're after, check out the awesome selection that Nordstrom carries.

Always on the lookout for a good wedge - especially when it comes with a great cause.
