October shopping inspo – the shoe edition

Summer is rearing its humid head and while I love my Birkenstocks with a passion, there are times when they’re not the most appropriate footwear choice (even if street style fashionistas indicate otherwise). After scoping Pinterest for outfit ideas to style my mom jeans it dawned on me that I didn’t have a pair of pretty heeled sandals, preferably in tan…

You can’t always get what you want

I know spring is coming and warmer weather is just around the corner, but when I see our northern counterparts dressing in on-point fall outfits I can’t help but be envious of their cool climes style.
