Oxfords

As a child, I was absolutely obsessed with oxfords. I owned at least three pairs by the age of 12. I used to walk around the house in them all day, while trying not to crease the top of the shoe while a walked. This basically meant that I was waddling around the house in my super shiny new shoes all day and all night. I eventually got over wearing oxfords when I discovered heels as a teenager. =)

A few years ago, I decided that I again wanted to own a pair of oxfords that were somewhat reminiscent of the ones that I owned when I was younger. When I saw these Vince Maye Oxfords, I was pretty confident that these were “the ones”.

One of my favorite purchases from 2016 is this camel coat from Aritzia, that now appears to be sold out. Aritzia has just been killing it in the coat department this season.  And I actually purchased two coats late last year and have not regretted it for a minute. This particular coat is just the right color of camel that I was searching for, and as an added bonus, the collar can be buttoned up right at the top for those extra windy days when you want to be covered right to the chin. I’m so happy I can cross off another one of those “clas

Ruffle Trim

And we’re back. Somehow a two week break turned into a three month break, but nonetheless, I’m ready to try and get back into this as my favorite fashion season has started. And what’s a better post to show off my new nude pumps! I finally snagged myself a pair when Ann Taylor re-stocked these in my size and I’m thrilled. After years of searching for the perfect nude pump that was just the right color, with just the right heel and toe shape, AND actually fit my feet! Not that you’d expect otherwise, but you will likely sees these pumps many of my upcoming posts. 😉

Review: Sam Edelman Dayna Lace-up Pumps

Lace-up shoes are so huge right now and show no signs of waning.  Though I usually to stick to more timeless styles when it comes to shoes, I couldn’t help myself with these Sam Edelman Dayna Lace-up Pumps. And I have no regrets. They pretty much go with everything and I’m tempted to just wear them with every outfit!

Look: Well, awesome! What more is there to say? They’re sexy, without being over the top so that I feel they are appropriate for the workplace. The photos in the post are a bit messy since the laces are just laying out and I didn’t make too much of an effort to tame them. These pumps also come in fuchsia as well as gorgeous nude suede, which is oh so tempting.Sam Edelman Dayna Lace-up PumpsSam Edelman Dayna Lace-up Pumps

Sam Edelman Dayna Lace-up PumpsComfort: For a 4″ heel, these are actually very comfortable. Decent padding under the feet, and have not experienced any unsightly rubbing or pain. A lot probably has to do with that the laces keep my feet secured in the shoe. You can certainly wear the shoes tied up all the way up the leg if you prefer that look, but from past experience with an old pair of lace-up wedges I had ten years ago, keeping the lacing low and around the ankle allows for more circulation to run through the leg!Sam Edelman Dayna Lace-up Pumps

Fit: TTS, in width and length. I took my regular size 6.

Quality: The shoe seems to be a pretty good quality for its price point. I expect these to hold up well with regular wear. The outer is made of suede. The laces are synthetic, but I wouldn’t expect otherwise.

Price: $120US before any discounts.

Price: At Nordstrom, you can find these Dayna sandals for 40% off, but only sizes 7+ are available. You can also try websites such as Shoes.com and Onlineshoes.com that always have good discount codes available.
