Pretty Patterns

Well, m'ladies, today I'm here to remind you all that this spring, not only is there love in the air...but there are also buckets of shoes, in pretty patterns, in all styles and shades! Whether paired with a simple solid skirt or some sweet skinny jeans, these sandals are sure to turn heads and keep your wallet full. I undoubtedly feel that a striking, patterned shoe is a must in these upcoming months, and I'm here to calm your shoe-obsessed mind with some pretty ideas of what could be joining the party in your stylish closet (free shipping too!).

At the top of my own wish list this week, I have the Seychelles 'Joan' wedge sandal. These flowery delights are sure to put a smile on anyone's face, and get that brand new pedi noticed too. Sure sure, it's a 4" heel, but the beauty is that it's a wedge--tons of support for an all-day wear.

The cork-heeled Star Ling 'Gigi' sandal has me falling in love with patterned satiny shoes all over again. These high high heels are not for the faint of heart (or faint of ankle!), but I think they're totally worth it. Really, the height is comparable to a 3" heel, which I think most of us can handle, c'mon. The tri-strapped toe detail, cut-out back and the buckled ankle all give it a complete vintage vibe that is tres chic!
Lastly, these Jessica's caught my eye--quite possibly a good shoe for those of us who wanna keep our patterns on the inside ('cause the inside's always what counts, right?). Jessica Simpson's 'Glorie' Espadrille sandal is a bold & beautiful catch, without a doubt. I'm a fan of the white, especially, because my legs look goldeny tan when I'm sportin' the white heels. Aaand that under $70 price is fabulously affordable--like my husband says "you'd be losing money if you didn't buy them!" Ha, where'd I find him, huh?!xoxo,

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

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
