Summer shoe roundup

If I had to prioritize one wardrobe item over the others I would definitely choose shoes. Shoes make or break my mood. They are the foundation throughout the day so why would I jeopardize starting the day off on the wrong foot? ;) 

My rule when shopping for shoes: If I can dance in them I can keep them.

Once my shoes are right I feel like I can accomplish anything; be on the go without having to carry extra shoes, bandaids and extra bags. 

Personal note: I have a foot deformity that has made it difficult to fit into certain shoes since a young age. Naturally I focused on my shoes because of this. Also, living in the city and not having a car as a shoe closet has made me more practical without sacrificing my style. 

Confidence comes from feeling comfortable and strong in our body and mind. Confidence is feeling that our environments, relationships and expressions align with who we truly are. Why not start with the very foundation we walk on? 

Here are a few shoes that inspire me to crush my goals like a super hero:

Edgy Feminine Style Tweaks

It's not surprising that I would flood my blog with everything Spring. This season symbolizes so many special things for me. Spring was a time I played outside for hours as a kid growing up in Vermont, a time when I celebrated another year of life, moments spent with my grandmother in her garden, walks and runs by the lake with my dog, and my love of fresh air and new beginnings. This is also a season when I can go crazy styling my life with more Spring whites and fresh flowers. 

There's a forgiveness about this season that gives us all a chance to start fresh; blossoming into the person we are meant to be. Although I dream about visiting California all the time, I don't know if I could permanently live in a place that didn't have the change of seasons. It would be difficult for someone like-me who is addicted to change. 

I would love to know which time of year inspires you to be yourself. Comment below and share your favorite season and why you love it so much?

Outfit Style Inspiration

I'm always finding the balance between feminine and edgy when I style an outfit. This beautiful floral print dress has a conservative silhouette that demands respect when paired with a strong structured [animal-friendly :)] faux leather jacket. Instead of going with a super feminine or conservative style shoe I had to pair this conservative dress with a modern structured shoe to let the dress do all the girl talk.
