Mint Chip

Top: Mind Code
Lace Shorts: Kaitlyn

Bag: B.Makowsky 

Shoes: "Mash Up" Chinese Laundry 

Mint Chip! I have a new found love for this shade of green. I have been looking for the perfect mint top, so when I found this flowy, Mint Code top with cut-out back detail I knew I needed it in my closet! I finally got a a much needed mini vacay, so the boy and I spent a few relaxing days in Palm Springs. This Mint Chip combo was the perfect outfit for a night out on the town.

I chose to pair this minty top with my favorite lace shorts from Kaitlyn. I love that a pair of lace shorts can work for just about any occasion whether it be with tights, a button down and a blazer for work, paired with a graphic tee for everyday wear or dressed up with a silky top. The outfit options are endless!

Since I knew we would be walking the streets of Palm Springs, I opted for my nude patent wedges from Chinese Laundry. Patent nude wedges are a must in every girl's closet. These strappy wedges "Mash Up" with just about everything in your closet.

Just a quick post today!
New pictures to come this weekend!
Stay tuned!

Sam Edelman

So lately, I have been going through heavy shopping withdrawls (being on a budget is no fun) and normally I am not a huge fan of window shopping (lets face it is such a tease) but I decided that it was finally time to go check out the new Top Shop line at Nordstrom (at least I can start making my Christmas list?) So what better place to go than South Coast Plaza? While walking through the shoe department at Nordstrom, I noticed a line forming in front of a step and repeat and there was Sam Edelman himself signing shoes. Sam Edelman was there to celebrate the launch of his new line "Circus." The "Circus" line consisted of bold colors, trendy prints and unique details, all at amazing prices! LOVE!

Meeting a shoe designer is like Christmas for me! And of course he was there the one day I didn't wear my favorite Sam Edelman sandals! (I really needed a pair signed!) So the amazing boy bought me these gorgeous pointed nude pumps with a metallic heel (stay tuned for a future post) and I stood in line. Sam Edelman is one of the nicest guys I have ever met which just made me love his shoes even more! He is actually good friends with the CEO of the shoe company I work for (I didn't even know that!) But it really does always happens in the fashion biz! 

Now for what I wore. I paired my favorite orange skinnies from Ever with this denim button down I found at the "Forever 21" of Huntington Beach. I fell in love with the lacey open back detail (sorry it's hard to see in the picture). I finished the look with my cognac Tory Burch bag and patent nude wedges from Forever 21. 

Let's just say it was a happy day!

An Orange Affair

Shirt: "Daydreamer LA" Urban Outfitters
Shorts: "BDG" Urban Outfitters
Bracelet: Marc by Marc Jacobs 
Shoes: "Dynemite: Steve Madden 

I've recently have had an obsession with orange. I never really was keen to the color until recently. And the different shades are mesmerizing. I now have a collection of several shades of the color in everything from accessories, to pants, name it. This outfit was inspired by more of a peachy shade of orange.

I have been looking for a cute pair of high waisted shorts forever. I know they are everywhere but it's hard to find a good fit at a good price so I was so happy when I found these striped shorts at Urban Outfitters for an additional 30% off. I paired them with this studded tank I found the same day I found these shorts! Score! Don't you feel so much better about shopping when you find deals?!? It's definitely one of my frequent shopping excuses. 

I had to buy these shoes once I saw the color. The sky-high heel, thick platform and suede were also deciding factors. Surprisingly they are pretty comfortable as well. Steve Madden also made this style in a variety of shades and some prints as well.  I may just have to purchase another pair.

I've Been Walking on the Railroad

Dress: BCBGeneration
Bracelets: Nordstrom
Key Ring: House of Harlow
Lucite Ring: Vince Camuto
Necklace: BCBGeneration
Boots: "Riding Hood" Chinese Laundry

I've been walking on the railroad...or I guess I could say posing on the railroad. Sundays in Santa Barbara always consist of wine tasting in Lampoc with J. On our way up there we always pass this amazing view and I've always wanted to stop and explore. Well after 3 or so months of saying so, this trip we actually did. Stepping over the tracks, and winding through the brush, we found ourselves overlooking the ocean. Definitely worth the stop. 

I was so excited to finally wear this white high-low dress I recently bought at BCBGeneration. The light-weight cotton and silhouette made this ideal for the breezy Santa Barbara weather. I chose to pair it with my new boots from Chinese Laundry. The second I saw the sample, I knew I had to have them.  I love the look of the distressed leather, the buckle detail and the perfect sized heel. I know I am going to live in these! Luckily the weather in Southern California fluctuates throughout the year, so I wear boots all year long. 

I chose to keep my outfit pretty simple but I think it ended up working out just fine :)
Stay tuned for more!

Metallic Madness

Elizabeth and James $325
Brian Atwood $595

Manolo Blahnik $815

Chloe $450

Marc by Marc Jacobs $250

Dirty Laundry $80

I’m in love with the Metallic Madness that is happening right now. Inspired by the sci-fi realm, the lustrous sheen and shiny surfaces seem to be launching us into the future. Unlike anything in my shoedrobe, I for one am excited to incorporate these showstoppers into my wardrobe this Fall. Only one problem…I need a bigger closet. 

I am getting into a blogging routine now so look for a post everyday!

Fair Frenzy

Top: Lucky (Borrowed)
Jeans: Citizens of Humanity 

Shoes: "Amped Up" Chinese Laundry

Ventura County Fair 

Spiral fries

Potatoes wrapped around a hot dog? Surprisingly yummy!

Ring: House of Harlow

Deep fried grilled cheese? 
Just don't do it!

Who doesn't love a county fair? The rides, the crazy food, the games (that are clearly impossible to win but you spend all your money anyways) ...the whole atmosphere is just something that cannot be missed. I make it a point to go to the fair at least once a year. Now I grew up in Orange County so I am accustomed to that fair, but this year I knew I was going to be in Santa Barbara. Once I saw the ferris wheel light up at night on my drive up there, I knew that is was the year for the Ventura County Fair.

I chose to keep my outfit simple. My favorite black skinnies by Citizens of Humanity, a light button down that I borrowed from my amazing roommate/best friend and I had to throw on these amazing heel-less platforms from Chinese Laundry. My blog is called High4heels for a reason! Sometimes I do not choose the most practical shoes; if I am feeling it with my outfit I wear it. (Don't worry I brought back up shoes in case.) Some people are frightened of the thought of heel-less platforms but they actually are not that terrifying. They are incredibly easy to walk in. The thick 2" platform takes on all the walking work.

Stay tuned for more!
