Friends, I wear my thirtysomething badge with pride (really, who among us would want to be 22 again?!), but there are times when the reality that I’m not the spring chicken I once was really comes home to roost. And that fantastic trip I took this spring was one such occasion. Assuming you might have some summer travel on the horizon (perhaps even this weekend?), I thought the time was right to share a few secrets I learned about keeping my feet happy on any adventure. mfortable travel shoes
Every year, as soon as summer hits, I look into my shoe closet and panic. The sandals I bought last year feel tired and overworked, and ever so slightly out of style…so, naturally, I start to shop. But lord, are there options this time of year! Inevitably, I get overwhelmed by the possibilities, and either end up with three times as many pairs as I need (and nowhere to store them), or I become paralyzed by indecision and end up with nothing. And then there’s the matter of every fashion magazine on the planet telling us to buy Birkenstocks and Tevas this season. Don’t get me started. (But seriously. Tevas?! Those French girls are laughing their chic little derrières off over this one, friends. I just know it.)
Instead of falling into old patterns, this year I took a step back (way, way back from the Birks) and thought about what a person actually needs to get through a summer. Read on
What else is there to say, friends? Starting today, take 30% off just about everything from the Loeffler Randall spring collection! In other words, it’s time to take the plunge on that pair you’ve been lusting after all season but couldn’t quite justify. But remember, those LR fans mean business – so if you have your eye on something, move fast!
I’m (over)due for a new pair of Converse, and I’m generally pretty loyal in these matters, but am finding some pretty chic Supergas turning my head of late. And so, I think the only thing to do is stage an elaborate Superga vs Converse debate. Head on down the rabbit hole with me, won’t you? Read on
Friends, I don’t want to alarm you, but have you looked at Coach‘s website lately? I got a note from them asking if I’d take a peek at the new Coach shoes for fall, and can I just say: socks officially knocked off! I’ve been loving the brand evolution going on at Coach over the last few years – things are getting hipper, less predictable, and generally more interesting. But these shoes, friends? It’s on a whole new level. Read on
There’s a lot of good sale news happening today, friends, and I’d never be able to look you in the monitor if I didn’t share it right away. First, there’s a massive shoe clearance going on at Nordstrom this week. Sure, you’ll have to fight your way through a selection of summer sandals and such, but if you keep your eyes peeled, there are some gorgeous fall shoes you’ll be stoked to get your hands on (not to mention plenty of glitzy sandals that will be perfect when the holidays roll around). Also, a pretty amazing selection of classic black pumps, should you happen to be in need. I’ve taken the liberty of picking a few favorites:
If those picks aren’t enough for you, I’ve done a little creative search-narrowing. So, instead of wading through the 2,000+ choices, just click here, select your shoe size (to avoid almost certain heartbreak), and you’ll have your pick of the cream of the crop!
So, there’s that. But then, I got an email from The Outnet. And they have a pretty stellar new crop of Burberry in stock that’s marked down by at least half. I’m just saying, when life offers you a Burberry cashmere peacoat for $500, you take it! But you’ll have to fight me for that navy cardigan-coat. As is always the case at The Outnet, these babies will sell fast, so don’t deliberate for too long.
As if that weren’t enough Burberry news, Nordstrom’s marked down their fair share of Brit goodies for you too, and just in time for fall.
I’m off to fill my shopping cart, and you should be too…but don’t forget to come back and tell me what you nabbed!
It’s September, friends! Finally! It’s my favorite month of the year – and not just because my birthday’s fast approaching (though that definitely helps). September always feels like a season of possibility. Leaves change, the air takes on that delicious chill, kids are locked back in their cells for another nine months, and the world feels like it makes a bit more sense.
So, I’m choosing to ignore the fact that the weather report claims it’ll be 90 degrees this weekend where I am. Instead, I’m looking ahead. To short boots, cozy fires, and soup season. Grab your first pumpkin spice latte of the season and do a little something to help your brain transition to fall. Need a few suggestions? Read on
