these fantastic summer sandals are chunky, bright, have elastic straps, and are less than $60 – plus free shipping. I love them – esp. in “miami green” – which looks like a gorgeous summery turquoise.

What do you think of Lucca?


wishlist: steve madden waaves wedge



I am seriously craving a new pair of wedges for the summer (to wear with my maxi dresses. hey, I’m 5’3.5″, so I need all the help I can get).

I really love the Steve Madden Waaves wedge = it’s not too high, it’s got cool color blocking, and not a bad price either!

What do you think of this wedge?

Happy mother’s day

Wishing all the mamas out there a very happy mother’s day! Being a mom is definitely one of the hardest jobs out there and I salute and respect moms everywhere!

I had a great early dinner with my in laws, sister in law and fiancée, and grandma in law. I miss my own mom but I’ll be seeing her soon! I did get to wear a new pair of sandals to dinner. My new pair of Tahari Ray mini wedge sandals that I picked up for $16 at a great consignment store near my job. These sandals are great for summer and very comfortable!

I’m not a mom myself but I do have a fur-child. Here is my sweet cat Lafayette saying hello!
