Shoe Love

This year...2010...has been my year for shoes. All my extra money and any pennies I am lucky enough to find has gone to my compulsive shoe buying. Ive resorted to the buying plastic containers to store them in because I cant seem to remember what is in every box. Ok ok Step 1: Admitting the the problem....I'm sure Step 2 has something to do with figuring out how to curb the problem...but unfortunately the Fall shoe collection is drool worthy.
I'm always on the search for the most awesome pair....i'm a HUGE fan of ...check it out definitely one of my favorites!
Do you have any online stores that are an absolute must for shoes?

Weddings Make Me Smile

Dress: Cache , Shoes (cant see them) Seychelles
Beautiful Blushing Bride

Babe and I...Slight Coordination :)

When All You Do Is Laugh...

Top: Thrifted, Skirt: BCBG, Hat: Found on couch, Shoes: INC

When out at the bar I kept my skirt tied...but I couldn't resist letting it flow as we danced later...too fun :)

I have a very close group of friends...I have my California girlfriends...which you guys see a ton of. I also have my Nebraska friends which I only get to see a couple times a year...both groups are just as fun and crazy...and most of the time hanging out is spent laughing uncontrollably and making fun of each other in the nicest of ways. This night was spent eating steak at a fabulous restaurant with my family (steak in Nebraska...amazing)...then bar hopping with these chicas. I know my outfit had a slight spring/summer inspiration but that was because of two reasons:

1. I am having a hard time letting go of summer...its my favorite
2. Nebraska style needs more color...girls are most comfortable in black and white..and red...Husker red...So I thought my palette might brighten things up a bit!

Happy Friday Everyone!!

Oh The Trouble We Find...

Top: Rampage, Loehmans 5 bucks, Lace Bodysuit: Urban Outfitters, Skirt: Love Culture, Shoes: LULU's
This weekend called for a fun night out..some dancing and drinks usually do the trick..we ended up in downtown San Jose which wasnt a bad thing but definately not the most prime location. Though people watching is one of the most interesting in this town...

   This outfit was based around my new blue top and my new wedges that had just arrived. I had fun putting this outfit together...I always enjoy playing with bright colors when going out on the town.

PS- Dont my friends look adorable!? Love them... <3

Summer is coming to a close...but in California the beach weather can be good year round. Little known fact that the weather at the beaches in Nor-Cal is worse during the summertime then during any other season! My roomie and I decided to take an impromptu drive the other day to do some hiking along the shore in Santa Cruz...and to are delight we found STARFISH! We were totally stoked and had never seen them in the wild the end we found three...then we then felt bad and threw them back into the water... BUT SO COOL!

The Giants are Killin' it...

Hat: Giants Gear, Jacket: Styles, Jeans: Rivet De Cru, Vest and tank: Target, Shoes:Keds, Jewelry: San Francisco

The Giants have totally been on a roll's some of my fave people and I at my first Game in San Francisco...they even won!
I gotta say sporting events are difficult to dress for, you want to show team spirit but you don't want to take things overboard...I am not an avid sportswear buyer as it is. I wanted to be fashionable without being fan obsessed and I must say it is hard to do when nothing in sportswear is on trend.
What is your favorite outfit to wear to your favorite sporting events?
