A Walk on the Beach

Pretty much year-round, we Southern Californians feel like it's summertime. For the most part, we don't see too much rain, get to visit the beach, and have plenty of spots to have a fruity drink with an umbrella in it! The temptation to wear sandal-y heels exists about 10 months out of the year to be quite honest. So for all of you gals who are not blessed with the west coast rays, I thought I'd shed a little light on the subject--I've spotted 3 pairs of sunny weather shoes today that are sure to get you grabbin' for your Coppertone & Ray-Bans:

Steve Madden's CRAZEDD wedges sport the forgotten fabric we call linen in an earthy, natural color that'll pair with anything! Especially with these shoes, you're able to pull off that hippie-chic look, without a whole lot of effort. Great platform + heel height to top it off.
I suggest visiting the for some fabulous finds in all things shoe. Huge selection, tiny prices...what more could you ask for?! Well, you could ask for a hot deal on heels by Not Rated, playfully called 'Childhood Memories' heels. Yep, you saw it right--bright, happy kicks for under $30!
Finally, I found some chic chic T-strap wedges--the Saira heel by Hive and Honey, found on my beloved Shiny gold ruched detail and a just-the-right-height 3 1/2" stacked heel has my mouse reaching for that tiny, cute 'add to bag' button (oops!). These suckers are simple and classic, but have the right amount of uniqueness about them to get you a quick compliment (trust me, if I saw these on you, I'd have some serious shoe-envy myself!).
So many good buys, ladies--and so many sunny days ahead!

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 t

Long time, no type.

You guys. Has it seriously been a full YEAR since I've typed up a blog post on here? That is both depressing and encouraging. Depressing--because I feel like I have forgotten about my first "child" my Holly in Heels blog. Encouraging--because it means that I have been suuuper busy with other fun and creative projects, like my continued PR and media copywriting, contributions to Coyote + Oak magazine out of San Luis Obispo, as well as Locale Magazine 's newest San Francisco addition. I have to admit that while these other (paying) jobs keep me busy and on my toes, I do stop and think about my former life as a fashion and lifestyle blogger, and how I miss the creative outlet. To be able to write about whatever topic I choose is certainly a gift. Writing is also therapeutic for me--this blog is like a friend. Like the kind you can call up anytime, talk about the deep stuff and then mention this new conditioner you tried...and then switch back to the meaning of lif

5 Creative Ways to Store and Display your Fabulous Shoes.

Before we begin...I need to ask for your forgiveness. I haven't blogged  since May . Ahhhh! Shame on me, I know. But before you grab your voodoo doll and punish me for the lack of shoe inspiration I've been sending your way, please be proud of my for massively growing my freelance writing business, tackling some public relations work, and stepping up  my Instagram pop-up shop . It's been fun, but the blog has been lacking. Luckily, I got guest blogger, Kelsey, to help me out this week with a fun story about how to creatively store and display your shoes (and keep you looking stylish, too!). Read on. . . . Shoes can pose a serious storage problem, even in spacious closets. The average American owns 19 pairs of shoes , while most shoe lovers are guilty of hoarding many more than that. This can too easily cause clutter and set us back 5 or 10 minutes during our morning routines. If you need shoe organization ideas to get a wrangle on your repertoire, Modernize has sever
