The crew over at Everlane has done it again! They’ve created a heel that you can actually walk in and I’m not talking about walking from you Uber to the restaurant. I’m talking walking ALL around the city, ALL damn day! This is a 100% HONEST review of the ballet-inspired shoe of your dreams. The day heel by Everlane has the perfect silhouette and is designed with a rounded toe, a walkable 2-inch block heel, and an elasticized back for extra comfort. Buy them now – before they sell out again!
Update: I have now had Everlane Day Heel for a couple of months and I can not express how much I love these shoes! These are the ONLY heels in my wardrobe that I can wear around the city without having to carry a pair of flats and without having to call an Uber to only go a couple of blocks. They wear beautifully and look fantastic! Get the Everlane Day Heel! You won’t be disappointed!
Now you can snag the Everlane Day Heel at Nordstrom! Is it me or is there something about shopping at Nordstrom that just makes you feel safe? Maybe it’s the amazing customer service or the return policy (not that you will need it with these pumps), but shopping at Nordstrom NEVER leads me to buyers remorse.

Halloween lasted (what felt like) forever this year and I am READY for the holidays! Halloween just doesn’t do it for me anymore. Right?
Well, the holidays are upon us, I mean I have my first holiday party next week and I am ready for it. This year I am avoiding dropping all the dollars on overpriced holiday wears and simply elevating my closet with a couple of pieces this holiday season…
The first (early) edition to my wardrobe was this blazer from WAYF. I just discovered this brand – mainly sold at Nordstrom, Shophop, and Bloomingdales and I am in love. My new holiday blazer from WAYF features a sharply tailored menswear silhouette and daisy jacquard texture – perfect for the holidays or hell year round. I paired the blazer with an oversized jumpsuit from ASOS. The blazer tailored the look and added in just the right amount of glitz and glamour for the holiday season.
What I Wore:
Blazer: WAYF, Finn Metallic Daisy Double Breasted Blazer.
The Backstage Pleated Dress – available in red + blue.
I fell in love with this stunning dress the moment I saw it on Kathleen Barnes’ Instagram and the $45 price tag made it a very quick addition to my wardrobe. Yep, this stunner was just $45 (and comes in a two of other colors here and here if pink isn’t your thing). I hadn’t placed an order with Nasty Gal in years and I saw this as an opportunity to give the old brand a shot and filled my cart with everything my heart desired, delightfully at 50% off.
Now, this dress was stunning on Kathleen Barnes and most likely designed for the not so busty lady – something I should have considered before I checked out. But oh-well I loved it and was determined to make it work. Thankfully I included a set of nipple covers in my Nasty Gal order (a must with this dress) which helped with the first part of my busty issue, but the dress has zero support for the girls and is quite flowy on top. So in order to keep this dress safe for the public, I had to tape it down and keep the girls in check. This double-sided, medical-grade tape ensures a no-slip fit and prevents any wardrobe malfunctions when wearing daring, more revealing styles – insert the backstage pleated dress. The tape is $16 and will save you for the rest of your life! #TrustMe
Leopard print has long been a wardrobe staple for stylish women, but get ready to see the trend really take over for fall and some additional animal prints are ready to join the party. From luxe leopard to snakeskin and zebra, there are endless options to take your look to the wild side this fall.
This leopard wrap dress from WAYF is $100 and can easily transition from fall to winter. This leopard-print velvet dress with an ankle-grazing wrap silhouette can be worn casually with a denim jacket or dressed up for a holiday party! Frankly, this dress is flattering, I don’t have to wear Spanx and with the help of a little pushup bra, I’m feeling fab for fall.
Leopard + Spots: not necessarily your first thoughts when thinking fall fashion…
But this fun pattern play works…right?
The leopard comes courtesy of the J.Crew original No. 2 pencil skirt. This classic silhouette is back, with a waistband that sits lower on your waist and a flattering fall appropriate knee length. Leopard print is having a serious moment for fall and this simple pencil skirt is a worthy investment. Not ready to splurge? J. Crew Factory has a very similar skirt for a quarter of the price here.
Now the spots come from an ASOS coat from last winter that is still in stock! This coat was a hit last fashion week. This lightweight coat is perfect for chilly fall mornings and has easily worked its way into my wardrobe year-round – thanks to San Francisco’s year-round fall like weather.
What do you think of this pattern play? Was it a hit or a miss?
Let me know in the comments.
What I Wore:
Jacket: ASOS, Spot Coat. More sizes available in Tall.
