I am ready and willing for Fall to arrive — and on the top of my Fall wish list are tassel loafers. I found five fun pairs, all for under $50, plus a bonus pair from the Gap that are missing the tassels, but certainly not the style. Confession: I’ve already scooped up the pair from Target, and the polka dot version from the Gap — I probably need one of the pink versions next, right?
Be still my heart — scalloped shorts and striped boat shoes – how adorable are these two pink seersucker pieces? Brought to you by two of the preppiest of brands of course: Lilly Pulitzer and Sperry Topsider. All that’s missing is a string of pearls and sailboat to Nantucket, a nice little daydream don’t you think?
It’s Friday, people! And Fridays call for a little extra dazzle to kick the weekend off right. Which is why I’m sharing some incredibly adorable shoe clips from Jackie Valentine with you today. As accessory obsessed as I am, I’ve never actually tried shoe clips.This might be the final frontier of my bauble addiction — jewels for your shoes. Tell me, are you a shoe clip girl? How do you they feel on?Shoe clips via Jackie Valentine
All you need is just a dash of detail to make a simple patent pump a coveted statement piece — and a black and white striped heel does just that. Thank you, Kate Spade, for feeding my stripe obsession even more!
As much as I love shopping for shoes, I have a very hard time buying shoes. Combine my hard to find size with a very short tolerance for uncomfortable footwear and I end up doing a lot of window shopping to find the right pair. But every once in a while I luck out… when I opened this box tonight I crossed my fingers and toes that these ones would work! And what luck, they were a perfect fit!
You can find them here.
Last weekend at my sister’s graduation I gave her a tassel necklace from Madewell, a fitting gift as she and her friends all donned tassels on their caps for their commencement. Usually saved for preppy loafers, tassels are currently making a comeback in a much more modern way. They’re that little extra detail that makes simple shoes glam.
At barely 5 feet tall, high heels should be my best friend. Unfortunately I was not born with the grace necessary to trot around the city in stillettos… which is why I’m very happy that wedges are back in fashion. I’m far less wobbly in wedge heels and have my eye on two pairs for the warmer weather. Surprisingly, these heels are from Aldo and Target and are both under $100!
The temperature seems to be slowly rising in Boston which can only mean one thing… I’m starting to pull the ballet flats from the back of my closet and swapping out my winter boots. I’m pretty loyal to my cheetah-flats (plural, because I own 7 pairs), but I might be adding a pair of cap-toed ballet flats to my rotation too. Tons of designers and stores are releasing them and I for one am a fan of this trend. Now comes the hard part, narrowing down which one I like best!
I’m super excited for Urban Outfitter’s bridal line BHLDN to launch on Monday. I’m not shopping for a wedding dress, but am attending lots of weddings this summer so I’m eyeing a few of the gorgeous dresses and accessories that go along with the bridal line. Are those white tassel shoes not the most fun ever?

Anyone that knows me well is aware of my addiction to leopard print, well, anything. But my particular weakness is for leopard print ballet flats. In a recent closet clean out I realized that I owned at least 5 pairs of leopard print shoes, 3 of which were the exact same shoe (I bought back-ups, just in case). I’ve been good at holding back on these purchases for a while, but my credit card is currently shaking in my hands because I just found my dream shoes.
Holy leopard print flats, they’re perfect! Here’s the coolest thing about these shoes — they’re custom-made from Shoes of Prey. You can pick your own style, change the materials, the colors, the embellishments, and they custom make them just for you! I’m a sucker for anything design-it-yourself (I can’t even drive by a paint your own pottery studio without getting excited); combine that with designer shoes? What’s not to love?
Fair warning if you visit this site and start designing your own shoes, you may be glued to your computer screen for several hours — this is the ulitmate procrastination distraction!
