Forever 29.

Today is a remarkable day. Why is that so? BECAUSE IT IS MY BIRTHDAY! That's right, 29 years ago today I was born in what was then a small town in Central CA. Yeeeeah, not to toot my own horn or anything (toot toot!), but I pretty much love when this time of year rolls around. January 13th is like the perfect time to have a birthday--just when the Christmas gift-hangovers have worn off, and I might have a few things on my wishlist that just didn't get checked off...then, BAM! Birthday. And not to mention this is the last year of my twenties. Sheesh! Time sure flies when you're buying shoes. But a friend recently clued me in that Queen Elizabeth notably celebrates the "anniversary" of her 29th birthday every year. In addition to that, my cute mom-in-law also has a saying that she's "forever 29" - because that's when she met her husband. Sweet thing. Well, all of that to say that I think 29 might just be a pretty darned good year.

And of course a good year calls for great shoes. In this case, it's Kate Spade that's got my almost-30 heart! Check out Kate Spade's 'Diva' pumps, shown here in a sweet winter-to-spring navy blue. A perfectly Kate 4" heel with a suede & mesh upper material give this pump a truly classic spin. I love the tiny, tiny lil' peep toe opening too. Tres chic!

Here's to birthday candles and shoes!

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
