Today marks the day of a brand new job for me! That's right, I'm movin' desks and findin' myself in the big bad world of marketing. I'm super excited to take this next step in my career--even purchased a cute, new mod lamp to make my bare, baby desk feel a tad bit more like home. After a generous cup o' joe to send me on my merry way, I'll no doubt be throwin' on my work-ready kicks--perfect to pair with pencil skirts and dress slacks. I figured to mark this fun, special day in my oh-so grown up life (when did that happen?!), I'd do a little post dedicated to just a few of my favorite work shoes...

Maybe as basic as they come, Steve Madden's 'Ulltra' pumps are a go-to in my Monday thru Friday closet. Perfectly patent and wonderfully nude, they truly pair with anything and everything. Someday, I might even consider investing in the black patent pump--which is a sure classic for the wintertime. This is a great, round-toe pump that all workin' women should own! No joke.

Comin' in a close second to Mr. Madden's 'Ulltra's is his own 'Trinitie' pumps in soft grey suede. I recently purchased these lovely thangs, and discovered that they have some sorta magical ability to make any outfit look soooo so polished. Hey, and they make my short little legs look Heidi-Klum-long too, which you'll never find me complaining about!

This fall, I'm not only going to sport the basic work-pumps, but also plan to kick it up a notch with oxford-style wedges. The preppy-prep look is waaaay in, and I've got no shame in staying with that trend! Sam Edelman's 'Wakefield' wedge booties are stealin' this school-girl heart, with a lace-up front and a cute collared opening. I foresee many 'a cute outfit in these suckers! Do ya blame me?!

Well, off I go! Wish me luck. :)

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
