Looking at my closet, when my mom visited, I realize I have alot of shoes. ( Ok, maybe I have realized this before! ) Many of the shoes have been from blogging, working with wonderful companies like Jambu, Andre Assous and Rockport, among others. But, I have been noticing this trend for this summer-Slides. Just a simple flat shoe with a fabric, leather, straw front makes an easy summer look even easier. I thought i would put together some of my favorite pairs. i haven't jumped the gun yet, as i need a bit more support than some slides have to offer. However, if you aren't worried about that, they are the perfect shoe to just slip in and be on your way to a winery, summer concert, or just out for the day. Keeping your feet cool.

img_9077img_9079Hello friends!Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. It rained Friday and Saturday all day, with Sunday leaving us with sunshine and cool weather. We had to take advantage of it! We went to a new-old part of town, one of the historic districts and enjoyed Brunch at a pretty hip place! My inner 12 year old  girl comes out when I can bring the pups and the place is Dog -Friendly. I decided I was going to make my rounds while I wait for breakfast and approach each cute puppy and their owner and ask "May I pet your puppy?" I just cant help myself. I am drawn to dogs! Anyhow, it turned out to be a lovely place we enjoyed.  A New Adventure. Speaking of  "adventure", I am here to tell you about the company I have collaborated with ( now the 3rd time) that is all about day to day adventure, JAMBU.

I was Gifted these booties for review . My opinions are honest and my own. Hello Ladies!  I am so excited today to tell you about this recent collaboration with Marmi Shoes. I collaborated with them last year, and received this fabulously made Vaneli red pointed flats with bow.  See COLLABORATION 1 HERE.  I had great service then, and was happy to collaborate again with them. This time,  however, it was all about the boots. Booties, to be more specific. When I was perusing Marmi Shoes, I was looking at the various boot styles, and realized some were a higher heel...

 Whats on your Summer Bucket List? Is there something you want to do that you haven't yet?Let's see.. I have gone on a 60 foot schooner sailboat,  been to the Summer Pops Symphony series, went to the Outer Banks where I saw Wild Horses as well as going to a beach I've never been to before. We are going to rent a boat sometime in August when the pups in their little life jackets can go with us and the heat isn't unbearable. Just getting ready to go out soon...

shoesblogHappy Friday everyone and Happy July 1st! I find it hard to believe as the months keep rolling by. My birthday and Gibby's birthday is coming up next week, so expect a blog post on that.Let's talk about shoes. I am happy about my shoe situation. About 8-9 years ago, it was a different story. Those of you that know about my health, know that I have a condition called Ehlers-Danlos Type III. The Hypermobility Type, where my joints move farther than the normal range of motion and I get muscular knots everywhere in my body.You can read more about it on my About Me page if you choose. Regarding shoes, at the time, I could not wear anything with a heel, and the flats had to have support, but for the most part I had to wear sneakers. Not the cool slip on types, so trendy now, but just your average gym sneaker.So, remembering this, and where I am now, I can say, I honestly have fun with my shoes now. Shopping for shoes, ( online) and finding styles that will fit into my wardrobe is now a joy! I wanted to share for this post, some of my shoe collection for the summer months, some trendy, some not, but rather fun staples that will carry me throughout the spring/summer months. I am able to wear a small wedge ( 1-1.5 inches) block heels ( same height) flats with support, and well-cushioned supported shoes that are fashionable. There used to be a time where "comfortable shoes" meant "ugly" or just not very stylish, but brands have come around knowing there is a market out there for beautiful, stylish and comfortable/supportive shoes. Here are some of my summer staples:You know the melody to Oliver's song, "Food Glorious Food " I'm anxious to try it! Now, replace with , "Shoes, glorious shoes" I'm ready to buy it! There we go!

Urban OutfittersHello LadiesAs I mentioned in an earlier post this week, "What goes around, comes around." We know this to often be the case the fashion trends. I remember in college wearing a favorite pair of brown beaded lace up espradrille sandals. Where did they end up?  They remind me of summer, the ease of wear and the style that goes with anything, skirts, white pants, shorts. There are ones made of leather, fabric, and ones that lace up. There are flats, one with small heels and then there are wedges. I had mostly wedges when I could wear them. ...
