    Silver Propet shoes, florals, and stripes

    I am very excited to review and show you the second pair of Propet shoes, which are a pretty silver flat with laser cutouts. These, as they suggested, do fit much better in the toe and are every bit as adorable and comfortable as the leopard print ones. I actually really love silver as a flat, too; I find that I rarely wear black shoes, but white tends to get very scuffed, and I’m not in favor of a nude shoe ever. So silver is a great substitute neutral. I love that these have the cutouts in them; it’s perfect for what I’m guessing is going to be a very…

    Stripes, a circle skirt, and leopard print shoes

    A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a company called Propet who specialize in podiatrist-designed shoes, and who had just launched a newer line called Rejuve that they were hoping I’d like to try. The representative who contacted me is also from Washington, which attracted me, plus she was incredibly sweet and helpful. After scanning the shoe line, I decided to go for it because 1.

I didn’t…

    Every once in a while, I actually let my hair be its natural self– straight–, and when I do I get this urge to part my hair in the middle. I personally love it– somehow it makes me feel a bit more glamorous than a side part — but my husband? Well… it’s been a journey. First, it was that he didn’t like it, and he couldn’t tell me why. Then, I finally dug out of him that I don’t look like me with my hair like this — aka, it’s just not what he’s used to. Then, he started to just look at me funny before he figured out…

    28 weeks

    Yesterday, I was browsing through my Pinterest board of old outfits, and I came across a few images that made me really miss not being pregnant. I started to feel all those silly feelings you get when you see a skinnier version of yourself– less glamorous, less confident, less beautiful — and you guys, all of those feelings are ridiculous. So I decided I was going to do a glamorous maternity shoot with myself, to remind me why I love being pregnant. But as I was getting ready, searching for an outfit to wear, trying out different hair and makeup, nothing really felt right. Every time I thought about what…
