Okay, I lied. They’re not all under $100, but seven out of eight isn’t bad. My obsession with gold continues as I’ve been searching for the perfect metallic pump. While I’ve been leaning toward yellow gold in other things like jewelry and decor, I kind of like the silvery shade of the ones toward the bottom. And gold sequined shoes? Stop. I think I’m in trouble. Which ones are your favorite?

Ahh, shoes! What girl doesn’t want a fabulous pair of shoes fitted comfortably around her foot, perfectly completing an outfit and single-handedly taking confidence levels from zero to hero (or heroine, in this case)? I would feel absolutely lovely in any of these kicks, which are each great company as we walk the line between end-of-summer and fall. These can go just as easily with sweet summer frocks as with stronger fall jewel-toned looks. Besides, this is the beach and heavy boots are still a long way off. Our transition period really lasts all fall long. Stay tuned for inspiration outfits in an upcoming post, and yes, go ahead and express your surprise — I am even CONSIDERING purchasing flats. Of course, only fabulous ones will do.

Inspired by Jessica Simpson’s extravagant birthday gift, a new orange Birkin bag (can you imagine?!), here’s a complete outfit with more budget friendly pieces to balance the high and low. Crisp white pants in the summer never get old and the math nerd in me is drawn to this red geometric top. A few gold accessories in the form of espadrilles, arrowhead earrings and a square-face double wrap watch complete the look. Chic and easy for a laid-back work day!

As much as I love all things black and white, I decided early on that I wanted all the bridesmaids to wear fun and fabulous shoes for the wedding. I had bright jewel tones in mind for a nice pop against their black dresses, so I set out to see what my options were online and in stores. It always seems hard to find something particular when I’m looking, but, surprisingly, these didn’t take too long to gather from around the web. Behold the bridesmaids’ gifts. They are all satin, either peep-toe or strappy styles: Jennifer (hot pink strappy), Shannon (green strappy), Jocelyn (deep purple peep-toe), Danielle (cobalt blue peep-toe), Sam (bright yellow peep-toe). If only they were all my size, I’d consider keeping every pair!
Since almost everything in, about or related to the wedding in any way is black or white, I feel like black shoes are really the only choice to compliment my white dress. I’m still looking for the perfect pair, but I want them to be fun, flirty and not too uptight. These Badgley Mischka’s are my current favorites. I love the ruffle down the middle and the super high heel. With my handsome husband to be standing 6’2″, I’m gonna need all the height I can get!
