Daily Covet: Ted Baker Lissome Sandal

Spring hasn’t officially sprung quite yet. And usually here in Middle America, it takes a little longer than other parts of the country to finally come around.

That hasn’t stopped me from shopping for sandals though.  In my online search for the perfect shoe, I found these positively perfect rosegold sandals from Ted Baker.  I’ll bet the block heel makes them super comfy.  The metallic leather makes them dress-up worthy. The metal plate and other more practical hardware in the same rosegold color make them unique and dare I say, a little bit edgy.

Thanks to J.Crew, we can now wear even the specialist of occasion shoes with destroyed jeans, so I know I’m not out on a limb when I say that these sandals could take a girl a lot of places.

Let’s just hope that girl is me!

Daily Covet: Weekend-worthy DVF dresses

I made a resolution this year to purchase with purpose, and to put a little thought into what I’m wearing when I leave the house.  Too many days last year, I went the easy route and spent entire days in my little black sweats, t-shirts and sports bras.

I have high hopes for the summer.  I live in dresses and lightweight cotton skirts anyway, which makes it much easier to look put together.  So this DVF dress spoke to me right away.  It’s comfortable, casual but can also be brought up a notch with metallic shoes and accessories – perfect for taking the kids to pool or a glass of wine with my husband on a warm evening out.
