Though they’re a heel, they’re super comfy, and I love the shape. But they’re pretty trashed – so what’s a shoe loving girl to do?

Refresh them, of course!

Using a little bit of nail polish, I covered over the black (and one oddly red) scuff marks, and gave my yellow sandals an on-trend neon makeover. I think they’ll need a third coat before wearing, but I’m mostly happy with the results.

Tammy’s headed out in a few weeks to a warm destination. So we both have the tropics on our minds. We thought we’d put together a handy little vacation… [Continue Reading]

    Wild About Vacation Style
  • My 12 year old was over at a friend’s house last weekend. While most of the time I’m arresting her phone and entering it into our family phone-jail, this time was different. I am proud to say she wasn’t glued to her phone… this time, she was glued to a newspaper! What? Yes. Adaline and… [Continue Reading]
