Makeover Time!

Sometimes, you just need a make-over.  Whether it’s a drastic hair chop, a wardrobe refresh or full blown “I feel like a new person” overhaul.  Well, it’s time for a Sharing My Sole make-over!  I am excited to announce that Sharing My Sole is getting a new look and a new home!  More information to come this week, but don’t worry, even if you come back here I’ll just redirect you to the new site.  J

For more details, follow along on Facebook!

Hope the Sharing My Sole make-over inspires a mini make-over of your own (even if it’s just changing your nail color!)

Daily Shoe in Snap Shots

I was finally in one place this week – at home!  It was nice to carefully pick out my shoes from my closet this week versus packing them all into my suitcase.  The amazing summer temps are inspiring me to bring out all my favorite wedges.  See what I’ve been snapping away on my phone this week and posting to Twitter (@sharingmysole).

Eye Spy

Spring is the perfect time to experiment with different make-up shades and new looks.  All the beauty brands have their spring color palettes out and I have been inspired to try new eye catching looks.

Turquoise Shadow is perfectly soft yet fun for spring, so I tried it lightly rimmed around my eyes.  The color goes great with pale pink lips and lots of mascara.

Plum Shadow – Plum shadow can be both edgy and soft, a great alternative to black liner which can look harsh.  I recently purchased a dark purple eye liner and love how it makes my hazel-green eyes pop!

After launching last fall, Chanel’s Peridot Nail Lacquer was an instant hit.  I kept reading about this famous shade in all of my favorite fashion magazines, so I finally decided to have a “mini-splurge” and buy a bottle for myself.  The best way to describe this shade – A mood ring in a bottle.  I was trying to figure out what color it actually is…  Gold?  Green?  Teal?!  The shade changes depending on the light with such a dynamic shimmer and iridescent effect.  Basically, I can’t stop staring at my fingers.  J

Girls Night

What girl doesn’t love a night out with her friends?  That’s what inspired me to recreate this outfit from the May issue of InStyle – Thinking of cocktails and dancing with my best friends!  A plain t-shirt and jeans can be easily dressed up with a great blazer, polished accessories and killer heels.  The look is perfectly cool, yet not too formal or overdone.  Cheers!

Daily Shoe in Snap Shots

One word sums up my shoes this week – Flats.  Since I traveled to St. Louis this week, I packed my most comfortable and cute flats for the trip.  Although I missed my heels, I was able to run through the airport with ease.  J

Lady in Red

Although it is not officially summer yet, the recent warm weather has inspired me to pull out my lighter, summery pieces.  The May issue of InStyle reminded me of a red print maxi dress that I had shoved in the back of my closet during the colder months.  I pulled it out and paired it with flat sandals and an earthy clutch for that effortless sundress look.

Mommy Dearest

The apple does not fall far from the tree with my Mom and me.  Her affinity for shoes was passed on to me at a young age and luckily we still wear the same size today.  It’s great to have someone so stylish that I know I can go “closet raid” at any time.  Since my mom is such a wonderful and stylish woman, she deserves only the best for Mother’s Day.  If I only had an unlimited budget, I would love to get her all of these things…
Gifts for Mom, with love…

Tracy Reese Picnic Basket – She recently mentioned she was looking for a chic picnic basket for beach vacations.  This one certainly fits the bill.

Kate Spade Girl About Town Scarf – Like me, my Mom has a big scarf bin and wears them with everything.

Dior Eye Shadow Set – To bring out her brown eyes. 

Vera Bradley Apron – So she can always bake in style.

Callisto Wedge Sandal – So I can borrow them from her.  J

No Neutrals Allowed

Since bright neons and color-blocking are the trends of spring, why not have the confidence to wear your brights together?  With such vibrant colors, the combinations may seem “shocking” but they really work wonderfully in one styled look.  Pair vivacious colors together – Pinks with oranges, yellows with greens or even reds with pinks.  Neutral shoes or accessories can almost seem out of place here.  So, put it all out there and show your true colors!

Daily Shoe in Snap Shots

My week started at home and ended with a trip to New York City.  I did my best to pack shoes that would allow me to walk around the city, while still being chic and stylish.  Here’s what I’ve been snapping away on my phone this week and posting to Twitter (@sharingmysole), all of my shoes and where they’ve taken me…

Quiet vs Bold

It’s funny how my two new favorite nail polish shades are the complete opposite of each other.  I fell in love with this subtle and springy green-ish hue from OPI.  It’s light and fresh for May.  Then, I found this dramatic maroon and red-ish shade from the fabulous Deborah Lippmann line-up.  It adds just the right amount of bold color to any outfit.

Quiet and Subtle…

OPI -  “Thanks a Windmillion”

Bold and Dramatic…

Bits and Pieces

Life lately has been chock-full of travel, which means lots of packing, unpacking and time spent in my closet.  When planning outfits for trips, it often forces me to go through pieces I sometimes forget about.  So, I picked out a few favorites from my closet and thought about the story behind them…

Bits and pieces from my closet…

Sequin Skirt

This little gem was a gift and completely fits my girly personality.  Although I’ve only worn it a few times, it makes me smile each time I open my closet. 

Mini Perfumes

I got an adorable mini perfume set about 3 years ago and these two little bottles are all that’s left.  They are just so cute!

Kate Spade Earrings

I bought these for myself…  Kate Spade Earrings.  Enough said.

Scarf bin

My scarf bin is an overflowing tangle of colors.  A great scarf is such an easy way to add a pop of color, so I have plenty to choose from.

Shoedazzled Heels

These were my little Pinterest inspired project.  I admit I have not worn them yet…  But aren’t they cute?!
