Weekend edition

Hello my patient readers! You'll have to forgive me (yep, you don't have a choice) but this week has been a monster of a week for me. Lots of fun stuff on my calendar, but certainly made for a few late nights! Ahhh, the life of a shoe blogger, always full of shopping + events + more shopping.

One of the fab events I found myself at this week was the Locale Magazine release party. Such a fun bash down at a waterfront resort in breezy Huntington Beach, California--I was glad to take my beau with me and make a Holly in Heels appearance! If you've paid close attention, this is the "living local" lifestyle mag that I write for--my quarterly feature is called Locale Looks, describing all of the best local finds in eating, shopping and hittin' the town! If you're an Orange County cat, make sure you pick up your free copy of Locale Magazine in & around the best of the best OC shops. If you're an outta towner, Locale Mag still has love for ya with this digital version of the magazine (next best thing!). Here's a lil' peek at my hubs and I at the event (pretending to be famous).

So as a reward for my busy-bee-ness throughout the week, I treated myself to a pair of new shoes. Ha ha, are you surprised? This time, I opted for online shopping at They had the very, very best price on these Jessica Simpson 'Ramonna' peep toe pumps! I figured these would be ideal spring shoes that I could sport at work and out to dinner. Peep toe heels are my weakness--I feel like they make my toes & legs look extra good and feminine. Whatcha think?

Welp, I hope this long-overdue blog post made you smile on this Saturday mornin'! Happy weekend'ing to you all you shoe lova's, and I'll talk to you next week.

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
