Chic Shoes From Ann Taylor


Hope you are having a wonderful week! I thought it would be fun to do a post to help get you through the work week and what can be more fun then shoes! Have you checked out these lovely pumps and boots from Ann Taylor? They are just too gorgeous to resist. Enjoy!


The pumps shown above are called the “Perfect Covered Platform“. They are so chic. I normally don’t like animal print shoes, but these are so beautiful. Just perfectly paired with that LBD.



Maya Tweed Platform Pump (Just Added)

These Tweed pumps are my favorite! I’ve never seen any shoes as ladylike as these. The chain detail just adds that little bit of something without making it look too busy. Just the right juxtaposition to the feminine tweed material. I originally saw these in a magazine a couple of weeks ago, which is what inspired me to do this Ann Taylor post, but they were not available online when I originally posted this. I am so glad they have it now! Wouldn’t these be amazing with a simple black dress, black pencil skirt or dress pants? They are sexy with out being too much for work I feel.





Abbey Lace Pump

These are the most beautiful and feminine pair of pumps.Very sexy, but subtle enough to also wear to the office.

Sofie Spectator Pump

I just adore these tuxedo inspired pumps. Aren’t they lovely? I think they would be perfect to wear to work.

Megan T-Strap Peeptoe Platform Pump

Another great pair of pumps to wear to work. I think these are very Madmen and would look great with a pencil skirt.

Lace Bootie

Aren’t these the most glamorous booties you’ve ever seen? They would look great especially with a cute dress for a nice evening out.

Pilar High Heel Bootie

There are unlimited possibilities for these booties. I would wear these with a cute dress and some leggings,  a skirt and a top, or even with skinny jeans. I really like the little buttons on them too. It gives a dressier look.



I almost forgot to mention that I received my Sephora online purchase in the mail today from their Friends & Family Sale last week. I will be doing a haul soon for it!

I heart MULBERRY + Alexa Chung for Madewell



I have to admit that up until this Spring I have never heard of Mulberry.  But during this Summer and Fall I couldn’t go on any fashion website or open up any magazine without hearing about Mulberry and Target’s collaboration with Mulberry which I wrote about in my Mulberry for Target post. Since then I’ve been lusting after the “Alexa” bag like everyone else (this bag has been on backorder since this Summer), designed for Mulberry by the British model Alexa Chung.





Love the patent leather Alexa too!




Speaking of Alexa Chung. Have you seen the new Alexa Chung for Madewell line? There are some pretty cute pieces.


Alexa Chung for Madewell Sketchbook Tee “Happy Skull”



Alexa Chung for Madewell “Betty Tea Dress”




I did a little browsing through the Mulberry online shop and found so many great items that deserve a spot in your home.  Here is my Mulberry Must Have List!

1. Mulberry “Alexa” – Oak Soft Buffalo

No list would be complete with the “Alexa”. Need I say more?







2. Mulberry “Alexa Small Shoulder Clutch” – Black Soft Buffalo

Such a classic and cute mini version of the “Alexa”. Perfect for daytime or nighttime.




3. Mulberry “Bayswater” – Drizzle Ostrich

Now I don’t think I would ever purchase an Ostrich product, but I just thought this grey bag is very beautiful. I just love the texture and structure of the bag.






4. Mulberry For Apple “Bayswater Sleeve For 13″ Macbook” – Black Drummed Patent Leather

I think my Macbook Pro would love me for this.




5. Mulberry “A6 Notebook Cover” – Oak Natural Leather

Perfect for students or professionals to keep your notebooks looking oh so chic.




6. Mulberry “Bayswater Pouch” – Steel Metallic Leopard

A fun pouch to carry and organize all your essentials. Perfect if you’re like me and carry a large bag where everything gets lost all the time!





7. Mulberry “Charm Bracelet” – Silver Metal

Would this not look so lovely around your wrist?






8. Mulberry “London Bus Keyring” – Pale Gold Metal-Enamel

Cutest Keyring right? Makes me want to take a trip to London.





9. Mulberry “Postman’s Lock Ankle Boot” – Drizzle Soft Spongy

Most beautiful boots EVER! I think they are perfect for Fall and Winter. See it on Emma Hill, creative director of Mulberry here.






10. Mulberry Jacquard Logo Scarf – Plum Merino Cashmere

Keep yourself wear during those cold snowy days with this beautiful scarf wrapped around your neck. I love the Mulberry tree logo!







The list could go on and on, but I can’t add every single item from their online shop! That is how much I love Mulberry. I like their elegant and classic style. These are things I imagined I would use for many years. Pieces that are timeless and you will love forever. What is on your Mulberry Must Have List? I would love to know!


I almost forgot. Since this is a Mulberry Themed post. I should show you what I ended up getting from the Mulberry for Target line.



Mulberry for Target ” Pebble Crossbody” – Black


I didn’t expect the best material from this line so, I am not at all surprise at the quality of the bag like most people keep talking about. It is what I expect from Target and especially at this price point. It’s not the best quality, but I think it’s pretty nice for what it is. It is not something I plan on having year and years from now, so I am happy with it. And if it turns out to be something I really love then I could always save up and invest in the real thing. I mainly like it for the design. I simply love the lock hardware on the Mulberry bags. Of course I could do without the “Mulberry for Target” etched in the lock, but what can you do. I don’t have any small crossbody bag like this and thought it would be nice to have when I need to go somewhere that is best to carry as little things on my body as possible, aside from a wallet, phone, and lipgloss and this definitely fits the description. Plus its adorable. I was not able to find a large version of the Patent leather satchel that I saw in the ads that I originally wanted. it is not available online either. I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on that one too. I heard somewhere that there might be more bags released next month. Keeping my fingers crossed!



My photos (sorry it’s not so great). I just took some quick photos with my iphone.




The charms are not my favorite details, but you can always take them off.



I plan on wearing it like so. I’m small and short so it is a good size for me.


What is your favorite item from the Mulberry for Target line? Are you planning on or did you pick anything up from Target?

Wedge Boots for Fall

It’s Fall and I can’t stop shopping for boots! I’m sure many of you can relate. I normally dread the thought of having to put away my cute sandals and wedges, but I’m finding many cute pairs of wedge boots this season. It’s a nice compromise for me because I adore wedges so much. Here are some of my favorites. I’m not sure which ones I like more, the tall knee high ones or the cute ankle ones.










(Available in Black, Redwood, and Brown)









(Available in Black, Grey, and Tan)



(Available in Black, Cognac, Grey Leather, Tan, and Wine)





(Available in Black and Tan)





I really like how versatile each style of boots are. They both go perfectly with a pair jeans or  paired with a cute skirt or dress and leggings. Like these dresses below. You can easily dress them up or down as much as you like.








Are you guys considering some wedge boots this season also? Let me know which ones you have your eyes on.
