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.

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…)

On the Banks of the Potomac – Lizzy’s Latest: Up in Lights

One concept I would love to learn more about is affiliate marketing for bloggers.  I believe this is an important tool in promoting my brand and reaching new audiences.  My blogger friend, Eccentric Owl, has a great post on affiliate marketing and I wanted to share her post with you.  For now, because of lack of time, I rely on word of mouth advertising from family and friends.  I also post on social media sites like Instagram and Facebook.     (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Nine West Tailor Booties

WED 1 IMG_8515 FinalWe had dazzling sunshine the day of this photo shoot at the Antietam National Battlefield, but it was blustery and barely 40 degrees.  It was the perfect day for leggings, a tunic sweater, cute brown booties, and kite flying. (more…)

Antietam National Battlefield – Happy New Year!

Taking the road less traveled 🙂

Happy New Year!  I hope you had a great New Year’s Eve!  There was a time when I liked to dress up in a sexy pair of heels and dance the night away.  Now, I prefer quieter evenings at home.  I tend to fall asleep around 10PM, but I set my alarm for 11:58PM.  This way, I wake up in time to watch the ball drop and wish everyone a Happy New Year.  🙂 (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – White House Black Market Charlisa Pumps

 

IMG_8429 wed Final Cropped

The girly-girl in me could not resist purchasing these super classy and cute stiletto heels with a bow adorning the ankle strap.  It is a subtle bow, but it makes these pointed toe heels quite unique, in my opinion.  If you’ve been following my blog, you know I have narrow heels which makes wearing traditional pumps a challenge because my heels keep popping out of the shoe!  So, I tend to buy pumps with ankle straps.  Now, imagine my excitement when I saw these beauties online at White House Black Market about a year or so ago.  I was so thrilled about finding black pumps that were not boring, but had an understated flair!  (more…)

Antietam National Battlefield – Christmas Traditions

1 IMG_8467 Final Cropped

Is it just me, or does it feel like time accelerates with every passing year?  As a kid, Christmas could never get here fast enough.  Now, as an adult, Christmas arrives and leaves in a blink of an eye.  My oldest Godson, Andrew, is 7.  I’ve shared 8 joyous Christmases with him.  My grandmother, Carolyn, passed away in 2000.  I’ve spent 16 Christmases without her.  I used to wish I could go back to the 90s when my departed loved ones were still here.  Yet, today I could not imagine life without my Godsons, niece, and young cousins.  (more…)
