A Few of My Favorite Things…

Plaid, leopard, stripes and camo are a few of my favorite things.  I usually have at least two of them represented.  These plaid shoes have potential to wear well after the holidays.  I styled them with this adorable leopard tee (with a navy collar), denim, cashmere cardigan and custom pouch.

These plaid, leopard and tortoise home accents are perfect for the holidays and beyond.

Casual Plaid

I am preparing for the holiday with a casual plaid ensemble.  I just got these plaid sneakers in the mail and it was a great mail day!  They are selling fast, so don’t miss out.  I styled them with a plaid shirt, pom-pom sweatshirt, denim and a custom clutch (which makes a great gift under $100).  Check back on Friday for more of my plaid shoe picks.

Be the Shoe – Book Party

I recently attended a Book Party for life coach Kathy Kelada’s new book “Be the Shoe”

Kelada has made breakthroughs with clients through shoe metaphors and was inspired to write the book as a result.  It’s a beautiful book and a unique approach to self-help. I for one am ready for some “Closet Therapy”.

“Be the Shoe” makes a perfect gift for all the women in your life.  The hand painted water colors of various shoes are stunning.   As I wrote in Shoes Tell the Story, I have always said that shoes tell the story of your life.  This book illustrates that in ways that will surprise you.

You can purchase it here.

When I was getting dressed for the party I was focused on the shoes given the title and chose my favorite J. Crew navy sequined flats.  Little did I know my blazer would coordinate so well with the book.

J. Crew Blazer (this was previously sold out, but as of press time a few sizes are available!)

Saint James Striped Tee

J. Crew Velvet Clutch it also comes in Satin in black or pink

J. Crew Jeans

J. Crew Flats (older style) but these navy suede heels or these navy and pink colorblock heels would look great

Happy Gifting!
