Currently Craving: Platforms and Suede


I've been working on a blog redesign these past few days - how do you all like it? I thought the links at the top made for easier navigation and cleaned up the sidebar a little bit, but I'd love your input! Please let me know if you have any suggestions for how to streamline the blog even more!

So while I was working on the redesign, I was also doing a little online shopping (as always!). I've been in love with these Joes platforms - or are we calling them "flatforms"? - since I first spotted them on Solestruck, and the obsession has remained. I'm thinking I'll have to find a way to get these shoes into my closet before the Spring, along with a suede skirt. I'm hoping the skirt is something that can be thrifted, but we'll see! I did pick up a nice Alexander Wang-esque sweater while thrifting last weekend, so anything is possible!

Also, I had the honor of being interviewed on the ENVI Shoes blog this week - check it out here!

I love the redesign! It looks beautiful and is easy to navigate! I'm in the process of trying to do a redesign too... I feel like the content is a little hidden on my blog :(

Anyway, great camel colored picks! Those Ray Bans are awesome, and the clutch is to die for!
