Waterfront Style


There's something about being close to water that makes you feel free and relaxed. I live in a desert, so Tempe Town Lake is as close as I can get without driving several hours to California. When I hear the sound of the water and the wind blowing it makes all of life's stresses melt away. SONY DSC

I went and visited last week to take some fashion photos of my new favorite maxi dress from Bar III. This dress is the perfect shade of green, and it's so comfortable. I feel like it was designed for an elegant night on the waterfront. I accessorized it with lavender wedges from Shoe Dazzle, as well as metallic fringe bag, silver necklace and Tom Ford shades from Alixandra Collections.


Though it will be several months before I get to spend time on the Atlantic Ocean, my stylish time on the lake was enough to satisfy my cravings for the water.

My Favorite Wedges to Date

This past weekend I headed into my favorite discount clothing store, TJ Maxx, to look for some shoes for my sister in law. I was successful in finding shoes for her AND for me. haha! I scored my FAVORITE wedges to date. They might even in my top 5 of all time...So what are they?

BCBGeneration Tempa Wedges. They are THE most comfortable AND attractive shoe. Seriously, I don't think Born or Soft has anything on these guys. The elastic around the foot keeps me feeling comfortable, as well as the built in arch support.

I bought these shoes in brown, but they also come in beige and black. However, I think dark brown is going to be a beautiful color for fall, so I plan to wear these shoes through October.

What's your most comfortable shoe?


This year's perfect summer shoe is a platform wedge sandal in a brown, beige, tan or khaki.

They look great with skinny jeans, wide leg trousers, dresses and shorts. They also go with every color in your wardrobe.

This past weekend I got a pair of Born wedges that are THE most comfortable shoes I think I've ever owned.

If you're on a tight budget Target has some cute options for $29.99.

However, I think these shoes will take you pretty far this year and next, so you may want to consider investing in some of the ones shown here.
