Yaaaay it’s the weekend! This week was so-so for me. Noting amazing happened, but nothing bad happened either. My daughter did start basketball, which I’m not happy about, but that’s what she wanted to do so Ima let her be great. She definitely will have the best ball sneakers in the building. I’ve been looking at girls’ sneakers for the past 4 days so I am super happy to be talking about shoes to you guys. I hope you see a thing or two you like.
Helmut Lang “Lucite Fur Stiletto”
I will be honest and say I do not own any Helmut Lang shoes. I do own clothes by the designer and I am totally smitten, so I would totally give shoes a try. These shoes are fierce (yall already know I love fur/hair)! I would pair them with track pants, a tank top and a cropped blazer. BTW, if white is a bit scary to you, they also come in blue.
Michael Kors “Avra Pump”
These look incredible on! My lack luster calves where instantaneously transformed into those of a career sprinter. The snake skin and the silver accents give an updated look to the classic black pump. I’m thinking a pencil skirt, silk blouse and a pearl necklace for these babies. Keep it classy.
Rachel Roy “Gardner Pump”
I love these pumps because they come a million different colors. Fun colors too! These are day to evening shoes for sure. You can go from work, to happy hour, to dinner without changing your shoes. Be sure to change your makeup though. Day make-up and night make-up are not the same. Pick one o two colors two liven up your closet and have fun!
This week’s drink is for my bestie, who is leaving me a moving to Maryland. She is a Ketle One drinker and I will certainly have to make her one of these before she goes.
