The Shoes at H&M Are SO GOOD Right Now!


It’s no secret that I love me some designer shoes, buuuut…

The shoe game at H&M is KILLING IT right now, and that makes my heart (and pocketbook) so happy! I’ve already pulled the trigger on a few items that I can’t wait to share with you guys. But in the meantime, I had to share the love before some of these bad boys get sold out!

While I’ll always be a designer shoe gal at heart, there are a few time-tested features that I look for when scoring cute kicks on the cheap:

  1. Stick to real leather and suede if at all possible. These simple slides are made from real leather, and these adorable bow sandals and pearl flats are made from real suede. And the best part is that they’re all under $60.
  2. If real leather and suede aren’t an option, I personally find that faux patent leather and satin are your next best bets. I think these patent flats and gorgeous luxe satin mules prove my case perfectly.
  3. Since you’re not breaking the bank, you can go for extra fun details like bows, brocade textures, and faux-fur pom poms without worrying about the splurge on something frivolous that you may cringe at later.

Which pair is your favorite? Lemme know in the comments, and happy shopping!

Now that winter is in full swing, I spend a good portion of my day all bundled up and swathed in multiple layers. Lately I’ve been obsessed with big, bold statement earrings to add a little zing to my cold-weather ensembles, and I think I’m hooked. Below are a few sparkly baubles that I’ve got my eye on.

CC Recommends: FitBit {Plus a Few Thoughts on Wearable Technology}


Waaaaayyyy back when my entire office was stuck working from home for over 3 months, my old boss got us all FitBits to encourage us to get out of the house and start being more active.  The gesture turned out to be a huge success, and I’ve been hooked on this sucker ever since!  In case you’re not too familiar with these little gadgets, FitBits are small wireless devices that you wear throughout the day to track your steps, calories burned, and stairs climbed. You can also wear them at night to measure sleep quality. While they don’t perform miracles, I definitely become more mindful of my activity levels and push myself to walk longer distances when I wear it.  And if you’re competitive by nature, it’s also quite fun to track your progress amongst a group of friends!

To be honest, I’d been neglecting my FitBit for a while after I lost my charger a few months ago.  The good news is that I found it, and the even better news is that Tory Burch is planning to launch a pretty cool line of FitBit “jewelry”. They’re not on sale just yet, but you can pre-order by clicking any of the small square icons below. I’ve definitely got my eye on the pendant necklace…

One of the biggest problems I have with my FitBit is remembering to put it on. But I think having it concealed within one of these pretty designs would help a lot in that department.  If the prices for the Tory Burch designs seem a little too steep (or if you’re like me and just can’t wait for the line to drop!), I also found some cute options while browsing Etsy.

From Google Glasses to smart watches, I’ve noticed the concept of wearable technology gaining a lot of traction over the past year or two.  I’m absolutely a gadget-girl at heart, so I’m very happy to see that manufacturers are starting to pay more attention to form factor.

Do any of you own a FitBit? What are your thoughts on wearable technology in general? Do you see it more as a trend or a glimpse into our inevitable future?
