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
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).
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
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!
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
In case you’re not an Instagram user yet, here’s what I’ve been

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