I think if you look up the definition of the word obsession in the dictionary there is some sort of explanation of women and their love for shoes.  And if there are pictures listed under that definition, these would be it and then a crazed picture of my face frantically looking for things to barter with to get these gorgeous shoes.  Too bad J.Crew doesn’t accept cuddly cats or pudgy puggles.  No, I would never trade my babes for articles of clothing!  Or would I (bwahahaha!)???

P.S. Happy Halloween Everyone!!!


Bag Lady

Top: Gap  /  Pants: Ann Taylor  /  Shoes: Steve Madden via TJ Maxx  /  Bag: Kate Spade (similar here) /  Necklace: Forvever21

After ditching my exercise class to head to Forever21, I found this sparkly little necklace along with a colossal collection of other budget friendly jewels.  I’m in big trouble after discovering all the glittery goodness Forever21 has to offer.  I foresee many more missed exercise classes in exchange for five dollar plastic bracelets and rhinestone earrings, the five-year old in me is jumping for joy.  Another item making me jump for joy, my Kate Spade cobble hill Kori bag I scored from their 75% off sale.  If you are a Kate Spade lover: (1) sign up on their email list for all their great deals and (2) this bag is the bomb!  I was a little unsure of the size (I’m petite, so big bags can overwhelm me), but decided this is the perfect bag for travel or work.  You can fit a small child in here!  Although, I highly do not recommend putting kids in purses.  Just sayin’ this bag has room, people!

TIP:  Sign up for you favorite stores email lists so you always know when sales are happening and the latest on new items!  It’s also a great way to get a b-day surprise (from most places) and coupons.  Happy Shopping!

P.S. Hope all of you in the path of Sandy are staying safe!!!  My thoughts and prayers are with you all:)

Happy Campers

Genius hand-washing station set up by Hannah, camper extraordinaire!

In lieu of a fashion forward post, I thought you might like to see a good ‘ole jeans and tee post!  You may not get any style inspiration from me today, but you can walk away with a great idea for a handmade, out-door hand-washing station (say that three times fast).  You might also be inspired to take a day or two off work to enjoy sleeping on the ground and waking up with a rash.  Ahhh, the adventures of camping! I didn’t really wake up with a rash, just a nasty stomach bug that cut our trip a day short.  This past weekend we took a trip up to Helen, Georgia with some friends for a camping trip in the Chattahoochee National Forest.  It was the perfect time of year to see the leaves changing color for fall and for everyone to enjoy the quirky, little town of Helen, while yours truly enjoyed the scenic view of the tent and the on-site bathrooms.  Aside from that, it was a blast and a great place to camp or visit if you are ever in Georgia.

P.S. Hope you all had a happy & HEALTHY weekend:)
