Yeah! It's Friday!

I hope you have some fun things planned for the weekend. I will be spending some time in the office, as well as working on the house.  I am hoping I can at least squeeze in a mani/pedi for a little relaxation.

Today is pair #62, a great pair of Nike running shoes.  They are great for my work outs, but matched my sweater today, so I thought I would throw them on. 

Please note that these shoes, like me, are much louder in person!
Have a great weekend and I will be back Monday with more shoes for your viewing pleasure!

MMMMMMM... Coffeeeeeeeee!

Last night I got home from work to a freshly painted bedroom.  I am super excited, it looks fantastic, and the color came out better than expected!  It's a bright Tiffany box blue and looks amazing with my knotty pine furniture and bright white Shabby Chic bedding.  Photo's will be posted once I finish putting everything back.  The down side is to my husbands hard work.... the fumes!  I  had a terrible time sleeping and finally had to resort to sofa city. So here is how I am starting my morning (by the way....don't you love my coffee cup? Thanks again Wormy.... still going strong!)

And, of course, regardless of my sleepless night... the Challenge goes on!  Today I am wearing pair #61 a cute pair of suede woven slingback heels. 

These are a great pair of 'basic' black shoes that go with everything. Today I have them paired with a green knee length skirt with a scalloped edge and eyelet trim, a black top, and a black and cream printed cardigan.

Okay, it's time for another cup of coffee and to put on my headphones and crank out some work!
See you tomorrow!

Feeling A Bit Wild!

WOW!  I am at pair #60!  And I must admit, it is starting to get complicated.  Trying to keep everything straight, along with the never ending battle of "What am I wearing to work tomorrow?", punctuated by sitting on my bed staring at the closet and thinking.... "No, I don't want to wear those shoes yet" or having to check the 'condition' of my most recent pedicure, which dictates if peep toes are an option or not.

Today I am wearing these great Zebra print pointy flats.  These are another staple that I heavily rely on when I just need to grab some shoes and run out the door.  They are made with a great, soft, microfiber type material, which adds to the comfort. And when it comes to flats... the pointier the better!

Today I have these shoes paired with dark was jeans, a charcoal grey top with some purple, pink, white, and light grey flowers, and a salmon pink cardigan.  You may not approve of the mixed patterns, but I think it adds to the overall look.

Short & Sweet!

I don't have much time today... so here is pair #59... my favorite and most often worn (before current challenge) Chucks... the basic black.   I love these shoes, even though they are filthy and the rubber is separating at the sides, they remain my favorite.  I can't wait to going back to wearing them several times a week!

Where Did My Weekend Go?

I hope you all had a nice weekend.  Mine was jam packed with stuff!!!  The cabinet guy put in a few hours on Saturday and I now have a couple cabinets installed in my kitchen.... WOOHOO!!!  During cabinet installation, a couple cute kids I know broke in the Easy Bake Oven....YUM!  And of course I had my Susan G. Koman 5k.  Here are a couple photos....

And, yes, I walked the entire walk in this get up.  I was stopped and interviewed by the news, had several requests for photo ops, and the local newspaper stopped me for a photo also!  I even met up with my mom and older brother at the Irvine Spectrum for a lunch date in full costume! 

Today, I am wearing pair #58.  A super old pair of Dollhouse purple leather kitten heels, that I adore and still have a ton of life in them.

I have them paired with flat front jeans, a long ruffled tank and a dark lavender cardigan.  Oh and some GREAT vintage accessories my mom gave me yesterday!

Go Go Gadget Go!!!!

Happy Friday!  I have been going non-stop since 4:30 this morning.... First, my office.  Then a meeting in Irwindale; followed by a meeting in Huntington Beach; then back to my office in Irvine....Yikes 160 miles in one day!

Finally I have two minutes to post SHOES!!!!!  Pair #57 is a super cute Blowfish red corduroy flats with a cut knot detail!

Today I have them paired with a cute black and white polka-dot dress, a red tank top peaking through, and a black cardigan.  Oh, and lets not forget my Hello Kitty watch!

I hope you have a great weekend!  I'll be back with more shoes next week!

Thursday times 2!!

Good morning!  I hope that you get to spend your day finalizing some fantastic weekend plans.  I plan on squeezing in some serious relaxation, book reading, and hopefully some sewing.  I have some great fabrics that are dying to become part of my wardrobe!

On to business.... today I have two more pairs for you.  First is pair #55 a under utilized pair of green suede Roxy clogs.  These are my shoes I will be wearing in the office today and out to a nice dinner with some friends this evening.

I love the simple rivet detailing combined with the wood heel and the design on the top of the shoe.

And due to a large job walk today, I have brought along my black Dansko clogs. pair #56.  These are amazing shoes that make your legs and back feel wonderful after wearing them.  I used to wear this when I was flying and they really make a big difference.  Now I try to squeeze them in when I have spent too much time in heels and my back is killing me.

I hope you have a great day.  See you tomorrow!

It's been a slow start....

After a very long work day yesterday and a GREAT nights sleep, I still feel like I am moving is slow motion.  Not sure if its the dreary weather or that I just need a day of pure relaxation.  I will continue to enjoy my hot cup of coffee, while I attempt to keep exhaustion at bay.  Trading lines from Napoleon Dynamite with a co-worker is helping brighten my day however!

Today is pair 54!  I have had these shoes FOREVER!!!  Okay, that is a slight exaggeration, but these have been hanging around for a very long time.

I adore the wingtip detailing and the funky shaped heel.  These shoes are great with jeans, slacks, and even skirts.  Today I have them paired with black tuxedo style capries, a funky top, a vintage black on black beaded sweater, and fishnets to kick it up a bit.

Good Morining!!!

It's 7:30 AM and I have already had a meeting in Santa Ana, purchased 2-dozen donuts for the office, had a very large cup of coffee, and returned to the office.  And I still have a full day of work ahead of me!  Thank goodness for my super cute and funky shoes today (and a second cup of coffee)!!

Pair 53 is another in my collection of Irregular Choice.  From the front these shoes are all business with their rounded toe and flower detail, but from the back you get a great pop of a Pucci type print that lets everyone know that there is more to you then a great business mind!

Also note the unique heel and scalloped detailing around the back of the shoe.

I love these shoes and today I have them paired with a black dress, a turquoise blue cardigan, and silver accessories.  I hope you have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow!

Holy Batman...It's Adam West's Birthday!

And International Talk Like a Pirate day too.... this Monday is full of great events!  Also included are pair 51 & 52 on my shoe challenge!

As usual for a Monday morning, I was flying out the door with out time to mentally prepare for my heels that will spend the next 10 hours on my feet.  So instead, I threw pair 51, a super fun platform flip-fops by Ocean Minded.

Pair 52 is a great par of Madden Girl peep toe sling back pumps.  I love the contrast of the print with the great red heel and black platform.

I hope you are set for a great week!  See you tomorrow!

50 for Friday!

I'm very glad it is Friday!  This has been a long week, but also very productive.  Today I have a new attitude, new hair cut, and a great pair of shoes!  What more could you ask for?

Pair #50 is another from my collection of Irregular Choice.  These vibrant, plaid, peep toes can brighten anyone's day.  I always receive a ton of compliments on these shoes, and today is no exception.

I hope you have a great weekend!

Millinery Anyone?

Did you know that today is National Felt Hat Day?  A day to wear and make your own felt hat?  I wish I would have known; not only do I have a plethora of hats I could  have worn, but I also have other appropriate head wear.... tiara, plush Minnie Mouse ears (complete w/bow), and numerous headbands adorned with a variety of appendages.  I have one friend imparticular that will be very excited t o know this day exists!

On to business... today I am wearing pair #49.  A fabulous pair of Poetic Licence satin sneakers.

These shoes are bright and cheery; the perfect exclamation point on today's outfit and the dreary weather.  I have these shoes paired with a black knee length dress and a golden yellow cardigan.

I hope you have a great Friday eve and I will back tomorrow with pair #50!!!

It's Wednesday!

WOOHOO!  The week is half over and I can't wait for the weekend!  Last night I came home to a new medicine cabinet in the bathroom with a much needed mirror.  I also stumbled upon a new cement floor poured and set for my much awaited kitchen.  My new cabinets will FINALLY be set this weekend.  The new house is coming a long and all these new installations equal NO MORE BOXES!  Now that is great news!

Okay, today I have two pairs for you.  First, pair 47.  A cure pair of brown leather strappy sandals with rivet detailing along the side.  I also love the wood heel!

I have these shoes paired with a blue and white flowy dress, a navy cardigan that has some great embroidered bird detailing, and silver accessories. 

However, since I have to go in the field to grab some photos I will be changing into pair 48 shortly.  These are a pair of cream perforated leather One Star by Converse tennis shoes.

I hope you are enjoying your week and the cooler temps!  See you tomorrow!

Happy Tuesday!!!

I can't believe we are almost 1/2 way through September already!  This year is flying by!  And so is this shoe challenge.  I cannot believe that I am already on pair #46!

Here are another, more nontraditional, pair of Doc Martens.  I love the pebbled leather, the detailed stitching, and, of course, the extreme comfort that this brand is known to provide.

These shoes go with everything from sundresses to jeans and tees.  Today I have them paired with flat front, dark wash jeans, a vintage inspired floral top, and a pumpkin colored cardigan.

Training Day!

Well, I will be at an all day field training class so today's shoes reflect my 'appropriate' footwear.  Pair #45 is a pair of Doc Martens circa 1990. 

I remember I got these shoes at some mega sale my brother had heard about in Burbank.  We briefly escaped a family event to peruse the shop and I came away with these.  Hard to believe I have had these for so long and that I still wear them.  Ultimately they are a great work boot!

I hope you have a great Monday!

Friday, September 9, 2011

Finally Friday!

Okay... here is pair 44!  A pair of Madden Girl black peep toe flats, with a cute ruffle detail.

I hope you have a GREAT weekend! I will be back next with with my next batch of shoes!

It may be hot....

...but I am still enjoying my morning cup of HOT coffee!  And yes, even those of us that reside in So Cal are under a heat advisory.  On days like this I do not miss the heat and humidity of the mid-west; nor do I miss wearing a polyester (gross) uniform while pouring Pepsi to weary travelers on old planes with faulty a/c systems.  I rather prefer the comfort of a properly air conditioned office that does not require one to wear polyester!

To accommodate the expected heat today, pair 43 is a pair of chocolate brown Born leather sandals. 

They don't get anymore comfortable that Born shoes and  I adore these shoes because they didn't compromise any style for all the comfort.  I have these shoes paired with another one of a kind, made by me, skirt and a fitted frilly tee layered over a fitted tank.

Pointy & Pink!

Wow this week is flying by!  I can't believe it's already Wednesday and that's it's only 2 1/2 weeks until my Susan G. Koman 5 k!  I hope the weather cools down a bit before than!

Today is pair 42.... a perfect pair of pink pointy pumps (yes, I love alliteration!).  These BCBG shoes are pinker than they appear but I'm sure you get the 'point'!

I have these paired with a one of a kind, made by me, multi-colored/print skirt with a small pink ruffle detail, a fitted white tee with some flower detailing on the shoulder and a pink cardigan. 

I am hoping to hide out in the air conditioned office today and avoid the threat of the hottest day of the year.  Enjoy your day!

Gotta Love A 3-Day Weekend!

The benefits of a 3-day weekend just keep coming!  I love when my work week starts on Tuesday!  I hope you all had a nice relaxing weekend and weren't too impacted by the freak rain storm that hit yesterday!

Today is pair 41. A great pair of Roxy tweed tennis shoes!  They are mainly charcoal grey but have some great blue, orange, and lime details; however, the don't show too well in the photo.

I hope that your short week is off to a great start.  I am going to get back to my coffee and reviewing my
e-mail!  See you tomorrow!!

40 for Friday!

Happy Friday!  And happy 3-day weekend!  I hope you have some stellar plans to celebrate the end of summer!  I am on call, but will find time for the pool and a visit with a long time girlfriend that is visiting from Washington! 

Today is pair #40.... a fantastic pair of purple pointy suede flats with some fun zipper detailing.

I have these shoes paired with jeans, a fitted purple tee with some super  cute ruffle detailing, and colorful accessories.

I hope your weekend is GREAT!  I will be back on Tuesday with more shoes for you to peruse!

I am super excited that the best sport EVER starts it's season tonight... COLLEGE FOOTBALL!!!  Even though USC doesn't play until this weekend, I love this sport and what the start of the season signifies; cooler temperatures, the start of fall, visiting an uncrowded Disneyland, and of course --- winter boots!!!

I am feeling great today!  Well rested and ready to tackle the day and my shoe choice agrees!  Pair #39 is a great, super fun pair of Steve Madden pumps.  They are red, shiny, and amazing! 

A complete stranger stopped me this morning and said "Good Morning Ms. Red Shoes!"  Of course, the fun doesn't stop with the shoes today.  I have these attention grabbing pumps paired with black tuxedo style capries,  a fantastic red ruffle tank made from this fabric....

And to top it off, I am wearing my Betsy Johnson black cat ring!

Oh, the fun just keeps on going!  I hope you have a great day and I'll be back tomorrow!
