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!

I had some major cape love last Winter, and this year is no different. When I saw my crazy talented friend Victoria wearing this buffalo plaid cape, I just had to know where she got it. To no surprise, she had made this cape as a new addition to her collection of handmade accessories at Agape and Hesed. Of course, I had to have it too. She also makes the most gorgeous clutches (I have this one and this one, and I’ll be adding more to my collection soon)!


On another note, I just got these Ted Baker booties, and they are oh so comfortable! I l-o-v-e the shiny wooden heel detailing. I also love that the heel is a bit chunkier than I normally wear, which adds to its comfort, but still looks delicate and polished. Such a great boot for both work and weekends.

TGIF! Wow, this has been one long week, and I’m so excited the weekend is finally here! If you follow along on Instagram, you may have noticed that Justin and I spent last week in Nashville for U.S. Thanksgiving. It was 5 days full of family, food, shopping, food, fun, and, did I mention food? We ate so much food, that this gorgeous Jill Jill Stuart lace dress that I wore last week to a holiday party can no longer be zipped up in the back.


I’ve partnered with Jill Jill Stuart to showcase 3 of her stunning dresses over the next couple of weeks. I’ve had my eye on this beautiful LBD for a while now, so it was of course my #1 pick. I’ve already worn it twice this holiday season. Sizing for her dresses is pretty true-to-size, and this one fits like a dream. The material is thick and feels very high quality. This will certainly be a dress that I’ll have in my wardrobe for years to come.


I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
