Favourites Friday #56

Okay, I’m over this snowy weather.

I love cool weather, bundling up in a cute outfit, drinking hot cocoa, slipping in front of the cute guy in the other building…but I’m kind of sick of the snow. My car won’t move, roads are a mess, and I still have to go to work.

Can we fast forward to spring?

This week I thought I’d share a week’s worth of outfits that I think are great for work and will provide the same comfort as those college year leggings. Continue reading

The 10 Pairs of Shoes That Every Girl Needs to Have

No outfit is complete without a smile…or shoes.

The older I get the more I realize the need to have staples in my wardrobe. It’s not about following the trends, but using the universally flattering clothing that generations upon generations of women have discovered and making them into amazing outfits. And the same goes for your feet.

I have lots of shoes in my closet, but there are about 10 pairs that I wear over and over again until they need to be replaced. These 10 are going to last the span of time because they go with the change of trends and the everchanging demands of fashion. Whether it’s dressing up for a gala or dressing down for a barbecue, if you’re getting dressed for something your go-to shoe is on this list. Next time you go shopping make sure you have each of these 10 so you’re never standing in front of the mirror with two shoes saying, “But, neither one works.”

Let’s get shoe shopping! Continue reading
