My red polka dot flats.

Sometimes, it just takes a pair of good, red shoes to get me through the day. In recent weeks, I have to tell you all that my feet have been growing increasingly swollen...due to a certain baby girl who's growing each and every day in my belly! It's exciting to be growing a sweet babe inside me, but it's also a little limiting when it comes to shoes.

I figured there are a few other hot mamas out there who have been struggling with the same issue--a strong love for the leg-lengthening power of heels, but an arch or a preggo girl swelling that has you feetsies saying "oh, no, no!" So, I will let you in on a little secret: there are a TON of cute flats out there, where you don't have to sacrifice your style. Now now, don't get alarmed...I haven't totally converted, and I'm certain that I'll be back to heels in a few months time. But in the meantime, I urge you mamas and mamas-to-be to not give up on style if you cannot bear heels!

Here are my new fave, red polka dot flats from Gap. Gap is an outstanding go-to for flats and sandals these days--check it out here.
So if you find yourself needing a comfy alternative to heels, think of my red polka dot flats, and remember that you can be comfy + stylish too!

Crushing on Sam & Libby for Target

Of course I always dig when Target partners up with a top-notch designer--but it's icing on the fashion cake when they pair up with a shoe brand! That's why I'm currently digging the Sam & Libby for Target of sandals, wedges, and stilettos currently on shelves. I picked myself up a pair the other day when I was at Target, and I am looooving my neon purchase! Here's a taste of what you must get your fashionista hands on, with Sam & Libby for Target:
The Sam & Libby Kylie Strappy Thong Sandal is a metallic dream come true. The ankle strap adds an adorable gladiator-like look that will never go out of style!

Next on my list of Sam & Libby faves is the Kelly Wedge Sandal with an ankle strap, in bone color. The tribal-inspired wedge has a pop of color around the toe, and a perfect wedge and platform.

I love the color on the Sam & Libby Sonia Silver Wedge Sandal in natural snake & coral. Check it:

And last, but not least, is the Sam & Libby Margot Open Toe Pump, that is not for the faint of heart (or ankle!). This style comes in a few colors, but my pick is the turquoise + brown:

Hop on over to Target or Target.com to crush on these, too, and get ready for style at just the right price!

GIVEAWAY TIME!: the hautest online club yet.

I'm big into monthly memberships these days--from Birchbox to LacquerousRent the Runway and my husband's new obsession with Dollar Shave Club--when there's a cute product or service out there that helps boost my fashion sense, I have to check it out! Plus, it's just too fun to get packages delivered to my doorstep each month, and I don't have to do any of the shopping or choosing! My latest find is HauteLegs--a monthly service that sends women 2-3 pairs of tights leggings, hosiery or socks every month. Customers sign-on, fill out a style profile and then voila!...receive beautiful, unique legwear. I tried the service out for 3-months and LOVED getting a new delivery each month!:

grey opaque, a classic!
 ankle tights, for the daring only!

I asked Monica, from the HauteLegs Headquarters, a few questions about the company:
HinH: Tell us a bit about HauteLegs and how you got started.
HL: Our service is ideal for everyone from businesswomen in need of good quality neutral legwear to the full-on fashionista's looking to inspire and be inspired. HauteLegs subscribers receive new styles FIRST and afterwards selected styles are available in our online boutique.

The first and foremost reason I created HauteLegs is to provide as many people as possible with a simple and affordable way to revolutionize their wardrobe. I work with many clients who seem to fall into a style rut--HauteLegs is the easiest solution to this problem. Our style profile helps us get to know our customers so when we send our products they fit in with their existing looks while adding a new and exciting twist.  

Secondly, HauteLegs was born out of frustration--far too often I've planned on outfit around an exquisite pair of tights only to have them snag while pulling them up--I even went through a phase where I was buying duplicates of styles I loved and carried an extra pair in my purse.  With HauteLegs you never need to worry about a snag or run again because you'll always have a stylish new pair on it's way.

HinH: If you could give us ONE fashion tip, what would it be?
HL: Oh this is a great question! Use tights to change the attitude of your outfit--take your little black dress and pair it with opaque tights and a delicate necklace for a conservative, daytime look and then glam it up for date-night with sexy lace tights and a bold necklace.  No time to run home before your date--no problem, just toss some tights and a necklace in your purse and switch it up when you're off the clock! Fun legwear is such a simple way to change up your wardrobe--that's why we can't get enough! 

HinH: What is the HauteLegs fashion philosophy? 
HL: At HauteLegs we believe that small changes in your wardrobe can make a BIG difference in the way you look and feel. Beautiful legwear is a simple change that can make big statement--stay gorgeous and up-to-date and never worry about snags or runs again!
