DSW Canada Lace Up Booties and Flats

Black Suede Lace Up Open Toe Heels

Dibba Pippa Lace Up Flats

Open Toe Cut Out Beige Booties

All Shoes from DSW  //  1. Crown Vintage (similar)  // 2. Diba  //  3. Audrey Brooke (similar)


Anyone who knows me knows that shoes are my weakness! I have over 130 pairs tucked into every nook and cranny in our tiny condo, not to mention dozens of pairs in storage at my parents house. Needless to say, I was pretty excited when DSW contacted me to participate in their new “Style & Deliver” program!


DSW‘s fabulous stylists worked with a few bloggers to assess our personal style and curate a new pair of on-trend designer shoes each month for 3 months. The 3 shoes selected for me by their stylists were right on point (and on trend!)! I love the each and every pair.


I had my eye on a pair of black lace-up flats, and I love the metal detailing on this pair from Diba. The black Crown Vintage cut-out booties are sky-high and look gorgeous with a black pencil skirt and white button down blouse, and I paired the Audrey Brooke peep-toe booties with ripped denim, a taupe leather jacket and a fringed bag. I’ll definitely be getting a lot of wear out of all 3 of these gorgeous shoes!





Thank you to DSW for partnering on this post!

Take a Deep Breath Gel Cream by Philosophy –  #dontforgettobreathe

Did you know that you can go 3 weeks without eating and 3 days without water, but you can only go 3 minutes without breathing?! That is because oxygen is essential to life. Breathing is necessary to fuel not only your brain, but also your skin.


I’m excited to partner with Philosophy to introduce their new Take a Deep Breath Oil-Free Oxygenating Gel Cream. It’s a lightweight, oil-free gel cream that keeps skin hydrated, energized, and protected from pollution, so it can “breathe” freely and recover from the signs of daily life that may age your skin. The older I get, the more concerned I am about my aging skin. I love that Take A Deep Breath feels lightweight, non-greasy, and doesn’t clog my pores. It leaves my skin feeling fresh, energized and radiant looking.


Taking a deep breath is actually one of the most de-stressing things that I do on the regular. My mind and body feel so relaxed after I take a series of slow inhales and exhales. It helps me feel less anxious, and releases built up tension in my body. I try to do yoga 3 times a week in the early morning to help start my day feeling relaxed and energized. Every night as soon as I get into bed, I take 5 big, slow breaths to de-stress from my day. Focusing on my breathing helps to clear my mind before falling asleep. As Philosophy so perfectly sums it up, “You see life more clearly when you take a moment to breathe.”
