Blue is my favorite color; so imagine my delight when I came across this lovely pair from White House Black Market.  The vivid blue caught my eye and the tassel ties add a flirty touch making these sandals the perfect accessory for summertime fun.     (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Nine West Everafter Fringed Two-Piece Pumps

The Nine West Everafter pumps are so chic!  The first thing that caught my eye was the fringe detail at the ankle.  Yes, two years later, my love affair with fringe continues.  😉  Fringe is definitely still trending in 2017 and when paired with approximately 4-inch stiletto heels, adds a sexy and playful vibe, in my opinion.  🙂   (more…)

Coltons Point – Andrew’s First Holy Communion

One of the joys I’ve experienced as a Godmother is helping my Godson, Andrew, strengthen his faith.  I enjoy taking him to Mass every chance I get and sharing my Catholic faith with him. (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Michael Kors Ciara Embellished Suede Slingback Pumps

There have been times over the last year when a lack of photo shoot planning led to a reliance on spontaneity.  This was one of those weekends.  Call it procrastination or laziness, perhaps a little of both, but I had no particular destination in mind other than it had to be local.  Dad suggested DC, but I was lukewarm to the idea.  The thought of taking pics in a crowd didn’t appeal to me and I was also thinking about my dad’s aversion to jam-packed places.  The last thing I wanted was an aggravated photographer.  😉  However, with no other option, DC became the default location.

Washington, DC – Judiciary Square – A First for Everything

Have you ever had the experience of being behind someone in line whose credit card was declined?  You patiently wait as the person insists there must be some mistake!  Ultimately, the person either buys less with cash or leaves empty handed.  Either outcome makes for a very awkward situation.    (more…)

Shoespiration: Vince Camuto Welton Moto Boots

Now that my shoe blog is monthly, the time in between posts sometimes feels like too long of an absence from all of you, at least to me.  As such, I’ve launched a new segment on my blog called, “Shoespiration.”  🙂  Its intent is to fill the fashion void that lingers between my main blog posts.  It’s a mini blog post; a sort of fashion fix if you will to get us through the month.  😉 (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Cameron Silver for Nine West Painted Heart Boots

When we shot this photo shoot a few weekends ago, it was meant for a mini blog post.  My intent was to have a new segment on the blog that would feature fashion inspiration in between full blog posts.  It would be my way to stay connected with all of you in the interim because publishing monthly sometimes feels like too long of an absence, at least to me.  However, we took so many great shots that I decided to bump the heel/outfit combo I initially had for February and go with this heel/outfit combo instead.  And just FYI…the new segment is still in the works.  So, stay tuned!

Southern Maryland – Vanishing Santa!

At dinner with my parents a month ago, Mom asked if I could print a Kohls coupon for her.  I assured her I would, and thought nothing more of it.  As we continued talking, Mom started nudging Dad and giggling.  I could tell Dad did not want to acknowledge what was unspoken between them.  Of course, that piqued my curiosity prompting me to ask: (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – White House Black Market Rebel Suede Moto Boots

The weekend we took these pictures, we had no particular destination in mind.  Surrendering to wanderlust, we headed to Richmond, our default destination for adventure.  Eventually, we settled on the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden named after one of Richmond’s beloved citizens.  (more…)

Richmond, VA – Beaver Dam Creek Battlefield – Happy New Year!

Back in early December, my dad sent me, my mom, brother, and sister separate emails with the following question:

“Who in our family is the most excited by, desirous of, jazzed over toys?”

Our response was unanimous:  MOM!

Yes, even Mom said, “Mom.”  😉  (more…)
