Straps & buckles

No matter how hard I tried this past weekend, I just couldn't help but stay up late on Friday AND Saturday night! I don't know what's gotten into me, frankly--maybe still jet-lagged from my Hawaiian vacation last week...or maybe I just need to cut back on the coffee. Ha! Well, all of this up-til-2 a.m. business had me of course playing on my laptop, scouring the virtual halls of Zappos, Piperlime, Amazon and Nordies for the best boots for fall. There are sooo many, ladies, watch out! Here are two (out of the many) fall-favorite booties I gazed upon, fell in love with, and couldn't help but blog about for my lovely readers to feast on...

I'll be the first to admit that I naturally gravitate toward brown boots. It's just my thang. I always pick brown over black when it comes to boots and handbags! Ya think it's 'cause I'm a brunette and the neutrals just look better on me? Not sure...but regardless, I do adore Jessica Simpson's 'Meri' bootie in gorgeous mahogany. Straps on the side and around the boot, an on-purpose weathered toe detail and stylish knot to finish! One perfectly stacked low-heel, too. You better believe I ordered these at this price on! Such a deal.
Check check check out these Naughty Monkey 'Playful' boots--that are o-so playfully stylish! A fresh, flat, over-the-knee boot made of 100% leather, that'll be perfect with skinny jeans or leggings when the fall rolls around. I'm no east-coast lady, but if I was, these would be my chilly weather staple! Did you notice the oversized buckle and funktified studded strap detail?! Adore. Cute & tiny 1/4" heel and a full inside-zip closure, too.

I guess I love me some straps & buckles, eh?

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
