Lizzy’s Latest – Steve Madden Sassey Two Piece Fringe Sandals

1 20160416_162949 Final

I am a girly-girl at heart.  So, I could not help, but fall in love with these fringe lace ups by Steve Madden.  They are the epitome of sexy!  The flirty fringe at the toe strap is so playful that I found myself stretching my legs in a dramatic walk to catch a glimpse of the ever so subtle swoosh of the fringe.  😉  What adds glamour to this sandal is the approximately 4.25 inch heel (pretty high even for me) and the ankle strap lace ups.  I love the tassel detail at the end of the lace ups too.  It adds such a nice touch to this gorgeous heel.  (more…)

George Washington Birthplace National Monument – Two for the Road: San Diego Snags Savannah

1 20160416_175003 Final

In less than two weeks, my BFF, Tammy, and I will be on our way to Savannah, GA!  Hard to believe, but Tammy has never been to the East Coast or the South.  Her biggest anxiety is the thought of mosquitoes eating her alive because she is very prone to getting bit.  We always joke she has sweet blood!  😉  I told her not to worry because I will bring the bug spray.  🙂

Lizzy’s Latest – White House Black Market Saffron Lace Up Cork Wedge Sandals

WED 1 IMG_0032 FinalI used to have a fondness for wedge sandals until a conversation with a male friend had me re-thinking my attachment to them.  According to this fellow, wedge sandals are the antithesis of sexy.  Sexiness to him is a woman in stiletto heels.  Given my love of stilettos, I could not argue with him there.  However, his aversion to wedges almost ruined my affinity for them!  (more…)

Smallwood State Park – I Love You Mom!

1 20160430_150157 Final

When I was growing up, I was a handful.  My mom told me I was a wild child with mischievous tendencies and a stubborn will.  At a young age, I remember being a curious kid eager to explore the world despite my mom’s attempt to keep me within her parental boundaries.  My independent nature certainly kept my mom on her toes because any lapse in her attention often resulted in unintended situations.

Lizzy’s Latest – Marc Fisher Braelin Ankle Strap Sandals

 

WED 0 IMG_9708 Final 5

I initially went with red heels to match the denim dress I wore in this photo shoot.  Coordinating red heels with blue attire is a common tendency of mine.  I like having that pop of red.  🙂  Then, I opened my first delivery of Spring/Summer shoes a few weekends ago and set my eyes on the Marc Fisher Braelin sandals.  The pink is even prettier in person!  I could imagine wearing these sandals on a date.  🙂  They are so feminine.  The braided details are eye-catching and add a nice texture to this shoe.

George Washington Birthplace National Monument – Three Strikes You’re Out

1 20160416_153520 Final 3

The weather was spectacular this weekend.  It was the perfect weekend for taking blog pictures and indulging in a history adventure with my dad.  We decided to check out the George Washington Birthplace National Monument.  Perched on the banks of the Potomac River and Pope’s Creek, the locale was perfect for a photo shoot.

The Battle of Fort Sumter

 

IMG_3480 Final

The first time I visited Charleston, SC was years before I became interested in the Civil War.  At that time, Fort Sumter was simply an anomalous structure hovering on the horizon of Charleston Harbor.  I remember wondering what it was and then quickly dismissing the thought because I had the beauty of historic Charleston at my feet.  Perish the thought in hindsight!     (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – White House Black Market Lourdes Pumps

WED 1 20160220_164603 Final

These chic heels have been part of my shoe collection for many years now.  I am so delighted to finally feature them on my blog and share them with you.  I love the white strap detailing on the shoe.  It truly adds a level of elegance to the stiletto heel, in my opinion.  It is a very unique looking pump.

St. Ignatius Church – Oh My Aching Back!

1 20160220_163210 Final

I never realized typing and texting could be hazardous to my health!  For years, I have typed head and shoulders hunched forward in front of a computer.  Then, when texting replaced talking, my posture further deteriorated becoming reminiscent of our more primitive ancestors.  Of course, posture was rarely on my mind because I never had any serious issues that caused me concern.

Lizzy’s Latest – Steve Madden Sambaa Lace-Up Pumps

WED 1 20160220_124509 Final

Hello, Spring!  I am happy that Winter is behind us now.  I’m looking forward to wearing shorts, summer dresses, and everything in between again.  🙂  I’ve already started my Spring/Summer shoe shopping list (no purchases yet because it’s still Lent!) and it seems like lace up shoes are having a moment.  I see them everywhere now which makes the Steve Madden Sambaa lace up heels so relevant.      (more…)
