Holiday Heels

IMG_1287

The bronze heaven gates have opened and these little angels fell from above and landed on my feet. My feet couldn’t be happier and they couldn’t not be more prepped and ready for Holiday. They will make any outfit sparkle and shine. An all black outfit could use a little bronze madness and these bad boys would make the cut.  IMG_1276

When I first pulled these heels out the UPS box, Wyatt was the first one to be like “WOW! Those are so cool.” If a guy like him thinks these shoes are amazing then that speaks volume. I can always count on Wyatt to be honest with me when it comes to what I wear but what I love about me is that I don’t let what he thinks dictate what I wear. What I love about him is that he’s always SO supportive on what I wear, how I do my hair, and whatever else. He’s the cutest and I got his approval on these shoes which is cool. Cool beans. IMG_1279

I mean, check out that subtle crackled detail. These heels are kind of perfect in every way but just one. They are slightly uncomfortable but what high heel isn’t? We have to make sacrifices sometimes and the best sacrifices are those that involve looking good… even if your feet are dying.

IMG_7733IMG_7692 IMG_7720 IMG_7729 IMG_7698 IMG_7702 IMG_7739 IMG_7717Day in and day out I get asked how I’m able to wear heels all day long. To be honest, I’m like most women and I do get foot pain. I’m just able to sacrifice my comfort so I can wear my favorite heels. Heels make me feel beautiful. It may sound silly but they not only elevate every single look you wear, but they bring confidence that a normal flat couldn’t, just couldn’t. No matter the amount of blisters, red marks, and band-aids I still would much rather opt for heels. Those painful days are over ladies! I would hate for other women to not feel the way I do in heels because of their discomfort, so here’s my secret.

Let me introduce you to Sole Serum– “A serum that targets foot pain relief. With the power of lidocaine and a soothing combination of natural oils and extracts, Sole Serum takes away your daily aches and pains. Just simply apply a small amount when you start feel discomfort. Your feet will be free of pain for up to two hours per use. Whether you’re standing on your feet all day, running errands, or simply making your way through the work day, foot pain can occur in even the most comfortable and sensible shoes. Sole Serum is the perfect solution, with its blend of natural and active ingredients to safely relieve foot pain for up to two hours per use. The power of lidocaine not only blocks the foot’s pain signals from reaching the brain, but also helps to reduce inflammation. It also includes natural ingredients to help soothe your skin and leave your feet feeling refreshed. Your feet will thank you!” Click | here | to read more about their philosophy.

But here’s my philosophy: Wear whatever makes you feel beautiful because life is WAY too short to not to.

BowTie PaperBag Pants

IMG_5736IMG_5720IMG_5739 IMG_5724 IMG_5741I really think I have discovered my new “happy pants.” Yes, it’s an actual thing. A great pair of pants can truly change your mood and make you happy, hence the name, happy pants. How could you not smile when you see these any how? The paper bag style is just lovely. I’m sure at some point in your life you have worn pants with a bow tie on it. It’s a classic yet statement look that every single girl can pull off, no matter the age. Anthropologie has two colors to choose from: Black and Orange. Surprisingly enough, the black pair can be styled in so many ways with so many different styles of tops. So for those ladies that like to keep their wardrobe a little safe but also a little fun, the black pair is just for you. But for my bold sistas out there, Orange is your color. Go big or go home am I right? I own plenty of black pants, so when I come across an opportunity to own a pair of striking orange ones…TAKE MY MONEY! These pants haven’t been the easiest thing to style from to day to day but hey, I like a challenge. That’s what I live for. I figured I would show you the most simple and bulletproof way to style these pants. I paired it my trusty ole’ crop top and my all time favorite blazer for a very sleek, minimal look. Hope you love it just as much as I do. You can always opt for a longer more conservative tee if that’s what you’re comfortable with. If so, your outfit will be transformed to fit into a more work appropriate setting. Give these pants a try. I think with an open mind you will fall in love with them like I did. Head over heels.

I ordered these pants in the size 00P. No regrets.
