English inspired.

Fall is quickly approaching, people! Can you even believe it?! I feel like it was just yesterday that I was posting on the latest in summer sandals and espadrilles! This time of year indeed means most of us are wrapping up our summer vacations, getting ready for school to start, and making lots of those back-to-school shopping trips. Look on the bright side, though--just means you get to trade in your summery wedges for chic boots! This season, fall is inspired by 'English prep'--think skinny cargos, layered looks with fitted jackets & blazers on top, and sleek riding boots. Plus, neutrals and earthy-tones are all the rage!

For example, we got these preppy & pretty Seychelles 'Bismuth' Booties--coated in distressed suede that gives them that boost of vintage-oxford. The 3 1/2" stacked heel is the perfect little lift you need to get you through the day in style. Great price, great fall bootie!

And if you're longing for a little more leather up your leg, the Miz Mooz 'Solis' Boot is surely callin' your name! All-leather with a fun lace-up detail and one fantastic 4" covered heel--what more could you ask for?!...I'll tell ya...maybe a sweet faux-fur lining? Yep, this prep-love boot is somethin' you'll keep pulling outta your closet to wear with skinny jeans & fitted cargos all season long.

And I couldn't just pass up showing you all this adorably double breasted military style jacket: the Kensie Faded Tweed Jacket! Check out those sassy skinny pockets and ruched shoulder details. The perfect autumn item to throw on with any outfit for any ol' occasion--and you're buttoned-up & out the door.

Are you ready for prep-school fall?

  1. I love those Seychelles. I almost bought booties like that from Barney's but these are a great cheaper quality alternative!

  5. I love the solis boots! I have to say I have so many winter shoes and clothes that I gave them their own room! Yes, I know they aren't animate objects. I'm not that out of touch :-) Loving the equestrian influence this fall/winter.

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
