I made a very silly new years resolution this year. Silly in the sense that no one really sticks to those types of things. Yet, this one was just simple enough that I had no reason not to try it out. My resolution: Wear more heels.

I am 5' 2 3/4"on a good day. I haven't grown (height wise) since I was in 5th grade. I've come to terms with with the fact that I will never be a leggy 6' runway model and find my height rather "cute". So why the resolution to wear heels? I've opened myself up to every other fashionable way to alter or accentuate my appearance, so why be a little taller for a day? 

The past couple of days I've really stuck with it. Wearing heels everywhere. To the movies, to parties, riding my bike, and to work. The outcome...is that I love it. It's amazing viewing things from a different height. Makes me feel a bit more important, a bit more powerful. But it wasn't a cake walk the whole time. I'm normally running late for things. Always in a hurry, trying to catch the train or running down a pair of stairs. To any woman out there who has ever walked down the steps from a train platform, at a decent pace, during rush hour, without falling on your face deserves a medal...or a cookie...or something shiny.  

Now that I am back in my flats I've hit a road block. When are heels too much for an outfit? Like when wearing a jumper, or shorts? I feel like wearing them with dresses and skirts is always a go, but it's shorts that have me a bit miffed. Maybe I just haven't mastered those yet. How do you feel? 
These are the lovelies I've been eyeing lately.



New Looks

So I've been working hard on changing the look of my blog. Different, different, different. It's exciting that there are a million and one possibilities, but stressful because I'm so indecisive. Yesterday, I cooked dinner with Jon to take my mind off of things. And when I say I, I really mean just Jon.

Mmm home made veggie burgers here we come.
Pretzel buns make everything taste yummy.

So I went out side of my comfort zone and bought a jumper. I'm not really a shorts person, and jumpers are normally tiny on the bottom. I lucked out with this one!

Jumper: Target
Shoes: Target (they are super comfy)
Flowers: Target
Necklace: Vintage



The weather here lately has been unbearable! This is coming from a girl who grew up in South Florida. I can't stop thinking about cool crisp fall weather, sweet little cardigans and tights. It's gotten to the point where I go all the way back to fall looks on blogs and I started buying winter boots (hey, they were $12, who wouldn't!)

Shirt: Forever 21
Pants: Urban Outfitters
Necklace: Urban General
Shoes: Target

These lovely pictures were taken by Jon. I've been in the process of redesigning my logo the last couple of days and was too frustrated to take pictures my self. Do anyone know a good graphic designer that might want to help?



Simple ❤❤

When in doubt keep it simple, so I will, with this post. I've been feeling very lazy this week so far, but am pushing myself to get more creative with my photos, I'm not quite sure I've achieved that yet. Still a work in progress.
Buttons front, Buttons back.
It's been super hot out lately, so I am avoiding pants at the moment. This shirt is great help, super light with lots of frills and flowers.

Shirt: Forever 21
Skirt: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Belt: Thrifted

Later that night I headed to Beauty Bar to check out a variety show Jon was participating in.
This place is so cute! They have old hair dryer chairs to sit in, and there was a woman giving manicures.

 The Variety:

Toups and Butts, Chelsea Marcantel 
 Rain, Honey Bun


Side note:
I was lucky enough to seen an MG on my way to work. This was my mothers favorite car, though this one was pretty beat up, but mine as well since we share the same initials.
