A good pop o' color

Everyone needs a good pop o' color every now and again. As the season changes and the clouds roll in (which I love, don't get me wrong!), I can't help but need a dash of bright in my wardrobe each day. And of course, in true Holly in Heels fashion, I like to say it with shoes.

After a fab tip from my friend over on the Glitter & Grace blog, I made my newest colorful shoe purchase from Forever 21. These gorgeous cone heel pumps, in a lovely coral or teal, were such a steal, and the perfect addition to my shoe closet wardrobe!


In this case, I opted for the teal color (although I coulda purchased both for this crazy-good price!) and they of course turned out to be the perfect color kick to my week. Paired with a black pencil skirt + a black and white striped sweater, I felt like I had a lil' extra swing in my step!


Nothing like a good heel to brighten my day. What do you do to add a pop of color in your life?

Sneaker talk!

As these love-r-ly fall and winter months creep in, it's time to expand the shoe selection and throw the sandals to the back of the shoe closet yet again. Maaaan, I just love this time of year! Scarves, coats, boots, corduroy, suede, leather...the bundled-up list goes on and on.

The changing of the season always brings in the new--and one of my favorite things about the cooler months of October, November, December is the new styles and brands I come across. That's why I was beyond stoked when I found Burnetie Shoes. Burnetie brings to the table a product that fits every gals' lifestyle, with an un-compromised quality, and a no-nonsense price. Probably the coolest thing about Burnetie is that they strive for a "zero waste manufacturing process by factories that are as much committed to their employees as they are to their customers." I dig! Burnetie Shoes also boasts award-winning Corporate Responsibility programs--it's no wonder, since they're outsoles are made up from 30% to 50% of devulcanized rubber, and they've reduced their packaging by 30%! My inner hippie comes out at the thought...


Burnetie has adorable kicks for women & men, that includes an amazing price point, starting in the $20 range! I myself am the proud owner of the City Sport tennis shoes, in lovely lavender. Yeeeeeah, I kinda like 'em (understatement of the year!). Holly in Heels approved. Fo sho.
 



So as you prep for the coming fall and winter months, and maybe take a peek at spicing up the more casual side of your wardrobe, make sure you remember the go-green shoe company who makes the cutest and most quality kicks this side of December! Don't forget to bookmark the Burnetie Shoes site, fan them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter, too! A great company like this deserves for the word to be spread and the style to be shared.

A cure for the Mondays.

Mondays are hard for me. It's always like I could use just one more day to sleep in and stay in my pajamas until noon, before throwing on a baseball cap and heading to run my errands. So after a busy weekend and a busy Monday, there's nothing I'd rather come home to than a big, shoe-box-shaped cardboard box carefully placed on my doormat. It's like the box is welcoming me home. And when that oversized box has an adorable pair of shoes (that I may or may not have forgot I ordered) in it...Ooooo, watch out! A sure cure for a case of the Mondays.

These lovelies awaited me today when I pulled up in my driveway. A lovely gold cap-toe pair of pumps from Tobi, my new fave online store. Everyday, Tobi tempts me with their 30% off new arrivals and adorable discount designer threads. I looooove this store, and you will too! Join now and share the news!


...And may you always have a cure for the Mondays.
