I. Want. Ankle boots.

Somebody help maaaay, I have a desperate craving for ankle boots right about now. You heard me...not chocolate ice cream, not a big juicy steak, not even a giant coffee (which is surprising for a Friday, I know) but I'm cravin' ankle boots. Ha, do I have a problem? Maybe. Well, I really don't know what it is--the weather in so cal is WAY too hot for me to even have the gumption to strap on anything other than sandals, but ankle boots have been catching my eye all stinkin' over the place, and I can't help but jump on the computer and scout out the scene.

Ya can't go wrong with Frye boots, let's face it! Especially these rough & rowdy 'Billy Shortie' boots by Frye. Faded to perfection and stitched up to a tee, these all-leather loves are definitely worth every penny. Am I right or am I right?

Or how about these fine, fine Sam Edelman 'Portia' boots in a sandy saddle shade--I love that these puppies are pull-on style, which means no fuss & out the door! I have an inkling that these Portia's will be perfect with anything--from beefin' up a dainty floral dress, to throwin' on with skinny black jeans.

Hey, even try splashin' some color onto the scene with these bluer-than-blue 'Carson Shortie' boots by Frye. A fab discount on Piperlime makes these a huge steal and a sweet asset in spicin' up your shoe-drobe (aka shoe wardrobe, yeah, I said it). And don'tcha just love that detailed stitching up, down and all around this shortie boot? Pretty sure you do.

Can't go wrong with the ankle boot! I'm tellin' ya--gotta have it.

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
