Bleeding Blue

Just as Stunner Shades are popular, so were my Stunner (blue) shoes that I wore to the 2nd annual Black Celebratory.

These shoes were picked on a whim by my little sister as few years ago at Sears on Black Friday. Blue is Lena’s favorite color, and I decided to buy the shoes because 1) I had zero pairs of blue shoes 2) I loved the Mary Jane peep-toe style. The ankle strap adds definition to the legs, and paired with the unique color you will definitely be a show stopper.

It also helps that blue is one of U of M’s dominant colors. So, it could be said that I wore school spirit on my feet. 🙂 GO BLUE!!

Suede Sole Sistas

My Dear Brunch and Pumps readers, PLEASE FORGIVE ME!! My time away from this blog was unintentional and waaaay longer than I expected.

I’m returning today with a newfound theory: Suede isn’t just for the Fall.

Pictured here you see two of my favorite pair of suede shoes.

The pair on the left is a gray suede spiked ankle strap pump by GUESS with a metallic heel. The pair on the right is a deep fuchsia/purple tie-up bootie with a collar back and gold detail.

 

What I love about both pairs is that they can be worn to match an outfit, or as a statement piece or add color-blocking detail.

I’m sure I’ve written about one or both pair before, but I felt they were worth mentioning again as I’ve been wearing them a lot this winter despite the snow here. Sure, it takes a little extra planning, but carry a shoe bag with you to your destination and pop on your suede soles to add some spice to your outfit!

Sweet, Sweet Sunday!

Cinnamon is one of my favorite spices.

Therefore, it’s not surprising that one of my favorite treats is a cinnamon roll. I LOVE having a cinnamon roll on random occasions as a post breakfast treat with a cold glass of milk. To me, it’s a comforting, warm and sweet treat that always puts a smile on my face.

Typically I buy the Pillsbury brand to just quickly separate the dough and place it into the oven. Moments after it’s done, I spread the frosting over it (while the rolls are still warm) and I eat and enjoy! (I’m seriously salivating as I type this).

Maybe someday I’ll have the determination to make the rolls from scratch just as cook Laura Vitale does here:

Enjoy!!
