Food Fashion and Flow: Green +Stripes

Green +Stripes


 Happy Monday! Can you believe that Valentine's Day is this Friday?  This week also marks my three year Blogiversary. Since this week is so hectic for me, I will announce the giveaway next week. Stay tuned because it is going to be a super fun giveaway:-) I am really excited about the brands I have partnered with. Do you have any Valentines Day plans?  I am looking forward to doing something fun with my son:-)

Today I am wearing some light layers, which is perfect for weather that is often neither hot, nor cold. I paired a green top with stripes and a touch of animal print with my pumps. I love that these shoes have a gold heel.  It adds that extra something.  I think most women love clothes and have shoe obsessions. I wish I was one of those women that had a whole room for my closet because I have always had a big wardrobe and an insane shoe collection that I have had to fit into a tiny closet and this has been for most of my working life, but you have to find ways to make it work and there are worse problems to have. Right?

I like the fact that these shoes are very comfortable. You will hear me echo this sentiment a lot because I don't like shoes that hurt my feet. I am able to walk several blocks in these shoes and feel comfortable. There are some shoes that I know I can never walk a long distance in, but these are not one of them. If I have a shoe that I even think might hurt my feet to walk in, I keep a pair of ballerina flats in my purse and I have no shame in putting them on. I find that shoes with a chunkier heel are usually more comfortable, or those with a hidden platform.  Can you walk a long way in stilettos without your feet hurting?

I already have cupcakes on the brain. Thinking about the sweet treats I plan to indulge in on Valentines Day:-) If you need some inspiration on Valentine treats to make, be sure to check out my chocolate cupcake recipe with flaming strawberries here, or my rosewater ice cream recipe here.These are guaranteed to make a statement:-)

You know food can by stylish too. Right?
I am smiling even though I got some disappointing news today.  I did cry after I got the news, but I had a talk with God and I feel better now:-)
I live in jeans because they are so easy to dress up or down. Do you agree?

This week I am linking up with these lovely bloggers: Style Elixir The Pleated Poppy Living in Color Style Lifes a Party Dress Like it and KarlyKim. If you want to join the fun, click on these links and meet some great bloggers:-)
I hope your day is as amazing as you are
Wishing you rainbows and butterflies...Have a great day!

Hoping your bad news gets turned around. I got some bad news last night too, but I had to do a lot of affirmations this AM just to get out of bed. I love those shoes though! Soooo in love with the gold heel.

I absolutely adore this outfit from head to toe. Great layering and the gold zipper on the top goes with your heels perfectly. Are these heels are recent purchase - I may need them in my closet.

I am a huge fan of hidden platforms shoes - they are perfect for work and like you said - so comfy.

Happy Blogiversay and hope that your sad news will turn to a positive.

Green and nautical stripes makes for a really fresh, preppy combination. I'm pretty shameless about swapping out of flats but then again our sidewalks can be treacherous this time of year. The gold heel on your shoes means your outfit looks just as awesome from the back!
