When fall fashion season starts I do a little happy dance because that means it's boot wearin' time! As excited I get to buy new fall shoes, I hate the process of shoe shopping. It's frustrating for size 10, narrow, flat footed people. So, I do all of my shoe shopping online with Zappos now. It's fast, easy and the online reviews help so much in determining what size is best. In fact, I've teamed up with Zappos and LuckyBrand to share with you my favorite picks and how I style them on the daily.

Not only have I learned to shop exclusively online for shoes, but I've learned to stick with a couple tried and true brands that I know fit me well. Comfort is just as high of a priority as style to me, so LuckyBrand is a go-to for me. Their leather quality is wonderful and their styles always match my west coast easy style.

I have several booties in my shoe collection already, but I just can't resist buying a black and brown pair each year. This year I chose black leather booties with a slightly pointed toe (Eesa style) and toffee colored suede wedge booties (Yamina style).


My daily outfits no matter if it's during the week or weekend usually involve some kind of denim and simple color palettes. I just spoke at Say Hi Society about Pinterest, and I wore my gray blazer, jeans, a black t-shirt and these Eesa boots. I felt comfortable and confident the whole time.

I'm also loving head to toe blue these days. Blue hues are a huge color trend for fall. Though I don't mind mixing black and navy, brown just complements blue so well and gives that fall vibe you can't miss. The Yamina style is great for miles of walking because the wedge style is supportive for your feet. I've been wearing them while I play with the kids, shop and work, and I love that the suede material makes them wearable well into the spring.


If you're in the market for new boots definitely give these a try. You can easily purchase them on Zappos with free shipping and easy free returns. They come in just 3-5 business days too! Let me know what you think!

We have hit 100 degree temps in Arizona, so you better believe I am living in sandals. Every year I buy two new pairs of summer sandals - one pair that's black and one that's brown. You would think I have a lot of black and brown sandals in my closet, but our summers end when November begins, so my summer sandals are beatin' to a pulp when the season finishes. I've teamed up with Zappos.com and Timberland to share with you my perfect summer sandals that guarantee style, comfort and long-lasting wear.

Because I live in these shoes all day every day they have to be comfortable, stylish and go with everything. Brown and black leather shoes tend to cover all my bases. So, when I was shopping for my new summer sandals, I came across these pretty leather wedges by Timberland. 

They are the perfect height (not too high, but just enough height), they have an ankle strap and are very lightweight. I have never owned Timberland sandals before, but I do remember owning their boots and I loved them. So, at a great price of $130 on Zappos.com, I thought I would give them a try and if they didn't work I would ship them right back.

Zappos is the best place to buy shoes because it's free shipping both ways, and they guarantee returns for 365 days. Shoes are hard to fit my size 10, narrow feet, so having the freedom to try on shoes like shopping in a store is wonderful. 

My ideal summer outfit is a sleeveless top or t-shirt with cute jeans or jeans shorts and wedges. These shoes really complete my look, and I've already gotten a ton of complements on them. Make sure to check out Timberland sandals if you're in the market for some new summer shoes.

Every year I look forward to the cooler months where I can finally break out my cozy sweaters, boots and scarves, but after a month or so of wearing these clothes I start to crave color. You see, it seems to me that every pair of boots is either black or brown and every winter coat is also black or brown. Add a bunch of jeans and black leggings to the mix, and you have quite the boring color palette. 

So, what's my solution? Throw some red pants and patterned shoes into the mix. You can find pumps and flats in a variety of colors. I especially love these black and white houndstooth pumps from Land's End. The block heel makes them super comfy to walk in, and they are great for dressing up a casual weekend outfit or for wearing with a dress to church.

I am also obsessed with HUE leggings. After having Levi, stretchy pants are what I live in until I can fit back into my jeans. These red jeggings are festive and stylish. They sure pack a bunch in a sea of black and brown. 

If you're nervous as to how to wear these bold winter fashion statements, just remember to keep what's on top simple. A black tank and blazer is totally acceptable when they bottom half of you is so bright. Try it and get out of your black and brown winter rut.

SJP Shoes


Sarah Jessica Parker is one of the biggest style icons in the world thanks to her role as Carrie in Sex in the City. She will forever be associated with Manolo Blahnik and beautiful shoes. Well, now SJP has taken on the role of a lifetime as a fashion designer by creating a shoe collection exclusively sold at Nordstrom. I'm currently crushing on this strappy metallic pump. It's totally something that I would want to wear for a night out on the town.


SJP will actually be doing store appearances in her favorite cities (click here to see where). She is also guest pinning for Nordstrom this week sharing her favorite places to shop and eat. If I knew I had a chance to run into SJP I would totally go. So, check out her board and maybe you can stalk her at her favorite restaurant. You can even win an entire shoe wardrobe.

Fall Shoes

Having size 10 narrow, flat feet makes shoe shopping a drag most of the time, but that doesn't stop me from ogling all of the new fall shoe collections. I especially have a secret love affair with boots. Ankle boots, calf length boots, over-the-knee boots...I love them and have them all. And, I want more...Here are my picks for fall footwear. Some are just dreams and others, well, may wind up in my closet soon.


Which ones are your favorites?
