ShoesDay Edition: The Closet

I’ve mentioned it before on this blog that someday I WILL have a shoe closet.

My friend Dejah (who is a shoe lover and avid reader of this blog) and I started a “shoe closet” board on Pinterest.

I recently found the image below (I can’t remember if I added it to our Pinterest board or not) and I’m contemplating having a shoe closet similar to this, especially because it’s purple!

closetThe feeling I get from knowing that my shoes are on display is difficult to describe! I just LOVE knowing that I will be able to shop my own closet!

Shoelovers, am I crazy? Let me know!

Happy Shoesday! 🙂

My, how FLATtering you are!!

I watch as their eyes gaze down to the ground. I can tell that they are staring at my shoes. I already know the question they are going to ask: “Leah, are you wearing FLATS today?”

I fix my mouth to smile sweetly, and prepare to give them a confusing answer: “Yes, maybe,” I say. Their perplexed face follows my response.

A woman who loves heels can still be stylish in a pair of flats, right?

Right.

Flats are part of my shoe collection. In comparison to heels, my flats lose by a longshot. But, there are those times when flats are necessary.

1)Changing into cuter shoes – cute flats are the prelude to the cute heels that you are about to wear. Or, in my writing vernacular, flats foreshadow heels. Personally, certain heels I have do not touch the ground (concrete/gravel) to avoid getting scuffed or more importantly to avoid me falling and breaking my neck. Therefore, I wear my flats and then change when I reach my destination.

2) Still looking stylish while resting your feet – Let’s face it ladies, no matter how much we try to walk through the pain- HEELS HURT!!! and sometimes, it’s beneficial to give your feet a rest and change into a pair of flats. No shame, no need to be embarrassed. Better to wear flats than to limp around in a pair of heels that are obviously murdering your feet after a long day of wear. coach.jpg

Are flats part of your shoe collection? And, I think I’m going to consider purchasing a pair of Coach flats. Any suggestions on the style or color?

Odd Day for Brunch?

Maybe I’m super late in finding out that one of my favorite restaurants serves brunch not only on Sundays, but Saturdays too!!

While I am excited about this news, it also seems a bit strange bravo-restaurant-greenwood-indiana[1]since I rarely think of brunch being appropriate for a Saturday.

Nevertheless, the restaurant Bravo offers its full brunch menu on Saturdays now which means that I can order my stuffed French toast and a refreshing peach Bellini on a Saturday. Umm… #Winning! imagesStuffed-Berry-French-Toast63EDstuffed-french-toast[1]

What do you think? Is brunch meant JUST for Sundays? Just for the weekend? Or any day?

percent of the time, I wear classic black heels to work since those are my “Staple shoes.” But, when I decide to pull out a pair of shoes from the twenty percent category, you’d better believe that those shoes are one word: STYLISH. But, wait… it gets better. This post is really for my co-workers. Yes, for the wonderful women who likewise don’t mind “stylin’ and profilin’ in their

Shooties and Foodies

I’m happy to say that two weeks in a row this blog has taken on its official meaning- that of me having brunch and wearing pumps.

Real Life Scenario #1- It’s rare that my mom and I go out to eat (it’s more of a pastime that my dad and I share), but when it does happen it’s always a good time. Last Sunday, mom and I ended up at brunch with other friends and had a nice booth to ourselves. My mom, the self-proclaimed “Fashionista” was flawless from “H2T” (head to toe), but for the sake of this blog I’ll only focus on the shoes.

Ironically, both of us wore pumps that are  “shooties”

Shooties (Noun) 

1. An fashion item commonly worn on the foot that has combined characteristics of a shoe and an ankle boot.

Sidenote- (I’m not a fan of the word “shooties” but this is how they are recognized in the world of fashion)

Here’s a pic of the ones my mom and I wore:
