Shoe Review: Corso Como Over-the-Knee Boot

I have been searching high and low for the perfect black, low-heel, over-the-knee boot.  I really wanted the highly coveted Stuart Weitzman 50/50 boots but $595 was not in the budget.  So, I was hunting for a cheaper knock-off and found the Corso Como over-the-knee boot on Piperlime.  Of course, I waited until after Christmas for them to go on sale and alas, they were sold out!!!  Back on the hunt, I scoured the web and found them! Nordstrom to the rescue, again!  Not only were they in my size and on sale, my husband gave me a gift card for Christmas.  When I received them in the mail, I was not disappointed.  I loved the glossy leather finish and the elastic back provides a nice snug fit on the leg.  I couldn’t wait to wear them and paired them with some skinny jeans and an oversized sweater.  I will admit that the toe box is not very deep and I did began to feel it on the top of my foot.  I think if I change my socks, this will remedy the problem.  I still absolutely love these boots!

California Lovin': Day 1

I was never so happy to get out of Atlanta for the holiday than I was last Thursday.  It’s not that I don’t love it here, but it had been raining for several days straight and the rain was to continue through the holiday weekend.  I received a whopping dose of vitamin D from the beautiful California sun!  We arrived in L.A. the night of the 4th.  We settled into the Hotel Palomar and watched the fireworks from our room.  The next day we headed to Malibu for a little pre-wedding brunch with the family.


As you can see, I’m back in my Zara skort.  It has quickly become a summer favorite of mine. I decided to pair it with another tropical print top and rose gold jewelry.  We enjoyed a scrumptious meal with a view of the beach.  I’ve been to L.A. several times but never made it to Malibu.  It was as picturesque as I had imagined.


After brunch, we made our way to Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills for the wedding rehearsal.  The lush gardens and views of the city were a perfect backdrop for a wedding.





I just couldn’t get enough of these tall trees! They were just so majestic!



Me & the hubby.

Shoe Review: It’s a Reva Party!

The Tory Burch Reva flat is probably the most popular ballet flat on the planet.  There’s just something magnetic about the simple design and the unmistakable logo medallion.  I remember when I was thinking about buying a pair, several people had complained about how uncomfortable they were because of the gathered, elastic detail on the heel.  One friend said she had only worn them twice but didn’t want to consign them because she had paid so much for them. So, they just sat in her closet. Such a shame.  I decided to go to Nordstrom shoe department because they always have excellent customer service and they didn’t let me down.  When I asked to try on a pair of the flats, the salesman immediately said “You need to size up at least a half size with these shoes”. Problem solved! I’ve been wearing my Reva’s pain free since then.  The leather ones I only had to go up half a size, but I went up a whole size for my glitter pair.

Shoe Review: Bold & Bright Isola Pumps

There’s nothing like a bold pair of colorful pumps to spruce up a summer wardrobe and these Isola pumps fit the bill.  I love the magenta and orange color combo because it’s not one I see too often.  The T-strap also gives the shoe a classy vintage feel. They are comfortable enough for a wedding or dinner party which is exactly what I intend to use these for.
