Blue Suede Shoes

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

I have so many things on my to-blog list that I can't believe it's taken me until Wednesday to get up a post.  I flew to Florida on Thursday to spend a long weekend in Orlando with my parents and sister (who flew in from NYC).  It was so good to be back in Florida, but when I got back apparently I felt I had done enough relaxing and needed a project because Monday night I hatched a plan to move my shoe closet from our bedroom to the pink room.  That plan quickly expanded to me not only moving my shoe closet, but also moving all my clothes into both closets in our bedroom and moving hubs stuff into the wardrobe that formerly housed my tops, sweaters, and dresses.  Basically I decided to relocate every item in each of our three closets and wardrobe to another one.  I think the result will actually be much better when it's finished, but right now things are a little crazy.

Spending time on flights and in the airport over the weekend gave me tons of time to look through all my favorite magazines and as I was browsing several pairs of blue suede heels caught my eye.  I am completely OBSESSED with those Louboutins (#3).  I'm not usually crazy about suede heels because I hate not being able to wear them when it rains/snows.  (Yes, I realize snow usually means you should be in boots, but sometimes I just don't feel like wearing appropriate footwear).  However, I think I may have to go against my normal suede feelings and purchase a pair of blue suede heels for fall.

On a side note - look at all the colors options you can choose from for those Pour La Victoire pumps (not all of them suede)!

Anyone else loving blue suede heels right now?

Current Obsession: Gallery Walls

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

Y'all know I've been snazzing up our living room for awhile now.  It's taking me forever to finish this little project because I started it with basically no planning or idea of what I wanted to do. I definitely knew I wanted to redo the art and as I was searching for inspirations I started noticing gallery walls.  I am obsessed!  (Side note - this coming across something I love and having it quickly become my obsession of the moment seems to be a recurring theme.  Not sure what that says about me...except maybe that impulse control is not my strong suit).  Luckily hubs is pretty much fine with anything I do to our home.  I mean seriously - I have an entire room painted Princess Pink (granted he doesn't spend too much time in there).

Anyways...I'm thinking I might want to do a gallery wall in our living room.  There are so many fabulous pictures I've found to inspire me I might just have to try it.

What do y'all think of gallery walls?  Does anyone have one in their home?

Fall in full COLOR

Monday, August 1, 2011

I am crazy about J. Crew's new arrivals for fall!  Finally some color!  The past several fall seasons have seemed to be seriously lacking in the color department (thank goodness for Lilly Pulitzer and an abundance of hues no matter the season).  While I do love to wear black on black outfit when the mood strikes, I usually need my outfits to be full of color.  When I came across J. Crew's fall arrivals I felt like jumping up and down and screaming in delight (unfortunately I was at work at the time and imagine that would have been frowned upon).
