Hustle and Bustle for the Holidays

 The holidays are most definitely one of my favorite times of year. I love everything – the food, the decorating, the time spent with close friends, family and loved ones, the holiday parties and events. I love it all. One of the only things I do not look forward to is the holiday shopping. Don’t get me wrong – I love shopping for others, but I have a bad habit of waiting until the very last minute to get all of my holiday shopping done. Guilty! Who else is guilty of this? Raise your hand!

One thing that is important and that I know very well, is not only shopping in style, but comfortable. This is my biggest tip when shopping. Always dress comfortably, especially when selecting the right pair of shoes. After all, you will be doing a lot of walking.

With the holidays quickly approaching and the last-minute holiday shopping, it is very important to be in the most comfortable shoes. Whenever I am on the go, you can bet I will be in my trusty flats. I always opt for a flat shoe that will keep me running errands and what-not comfortably throughout the entire day.

We all know that sparkles and velvet are a must during the holidays, which is why I can’t get enough of these burgundy beauties from Naturalizer. While I love my heels and boots, flats are definitely without a doubt, my go-to shoe for hustling and bustling during the holidays. The best part is that these flats are festive enough for all your holiday parties. These can take you from day to night, and you can style them casual or dress them up. It’s a win-win!

Happy holidays!

6 Boots I’m Loving

Nothing I love more than Fall fashion. I know I’ve said this before. With Fall finally upon us, it’s time to bring out all the boots and start buying some new ones as well.

Here are 6 Boots I’m loving right now. Let me know which ones are your favorite? Or share some of your favorite boot styles.

  1. White boots are here and they are here to stay.
  2. Slouchy Boots. I honestly didn’t think these would come back in style, but they have and they are currently trending hardcore at the moment.
  3. Kitten Heels. Ahhh, yes the kitten heel. I didn’t see myself ever coming to like this trend but I do. It’s currently one of my favorites in boot form.
  4. Red Boots. Another favorite color at the moment. It’s such a statement color, and elevates any outfit from basic to bad-ass.
  5. A wickedly pointy toe is currently my jam. It’s the sleekest boot and so sophisticated.
  6. Sock Boot. It’s such a staple wardrobe piece to have in your closet.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

You guys! A little birdie told me that Shopbop is having a MAJOR sale right now until this Friday 9/29. And not just any ordinary sale – I’m talking sitewide discounts! Everything on their website is on sale…. I know, I can’t handle it either. This is the perfect opportunity to shop items that normally sit in my shopping cart that I never check out. Also, the perfect opp to shop key items, like coats, bags and shoes – items I would wear over and over again that will actually get good wear out of throughout the year that will never go out of style.

From women’s clothing to bags to shoes to accessories, even men’s. They have it all, and it’s all on sale.

These Quay sunglasses pictured above are on sale right now. Click here to shop them now. Plus there are many similar bags like the one above that are discounted at a very good price. Click here to shop all round bags.

Red for Fall

The temperature has finally dropped below 70, feels cooler (a lot cooler) outside, and we are in the clear to say that it’s beginning to feel a lot of Fall! Yay! Anyone else just as excited as I am about this?! With a new season comes new trends and new wardrobe… obviously. Hello Fall, Hello red!

I’ve been seeing a lot of reds and maroons, pant suits, and color blocking play EVERYWHERE, epsecially on my Instagram feed, and quite honestly not surprised either. One in particular that has grabbed my attention is the color red. Red is such a powerful color. It makes such a strong statement alone, and easy to create an effortless outfit when you’re in a rush. It’s definitely one of my go-to colors right now for this season. If you know me you know that I steer far from a bold lip or any darker hues when it comes to beauty, however; as you grow, you tend to develop new loves and interests, and red has definitely grown on me. One that I happen to keep wearing over and over again. I’ve found myself wearing red more often than usual. If you asked me last year what my go-to wardrobe and beauty palettes were, I’d probably say neutrals and of course black. I’m very particular with adding pops of color in my wardrobe. Fast forward to today, I’m for sure playing with more colors and adding new tones in my life both wardrobe and makeup – and I ain’t mad about it.

What are some of your favorite Fall trends at the moment? What are some trends you’re currently wearing that you never thought you’d wear before? Would love to hear them.

Hope you all have a great Monday. See ya soon!

My Top Picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

 

By now, the malls are probably the craziest and most hectic, especially because of the most anticipated sale of the year – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The only time I wish I had a sugar daddy (no offense Horhey). It’s the most dangerous sale, but most exciting because a lot of the brands that are normally super expensive get dropped to a more reasonable price that cannot be passed up, I meannnn. Lucky for us there’s online shipping so we don’t have to wait in ridiculous lines. We can simply shop form the comfort of our home.

 

So without further ado, here are my top picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that are currently sitting in my shopping cart, because it is frowned upon to be in a store with no bra, sweatpants and a glass a wine.

The Best Ways to Find Deals on Ankle Boots

ankle boots, sale, deals, fall, season, online, shopping, boots,

ankle boots, sale, deals, fall, season, online, shopping, boots,

 

Whether you’re in dire need of new ankle boots to replace your worn soles or simply need a style update, shopping online is one of the most convenient ways to get a new pair or two. Making shoe purchases online can also save you a lot of money because of all the discounts and special offers you can get. Here are five of the best ways to find the best deals on ankle boots online:

Check out coupon sites.

If you want to slash up to 75% off the cost of your purchase, there’s no better way to do it than using coupon codes for ankle boots. Coupon sites offer products and services from top brands at discounted prices and you can even score special offers such as free delivery or a free pair of shoes. Voucher codes are great for those who want to stay in style and have trendy ankle boots but don’t have the budget to buy them at full price. You can get voucher codes for Public Desire by visiting Total Discounts and then you just need to apply the code when you check out. Remember though, it’s important to act quickly, as coupon codes have an expiration date and you have to make your purchase while they’re still valid.

Visit retailer or manufacturer sites.

Shoe brands usually have post-season or clearance sales on their products, so it would be a good idea to bookmark their websites and watch out for sales. It may involve a lot of waiting, but your efforts will surely pay off when you get your coveted ankle boots on sale. As with coupon codes, when buying at clearance sales you’ll have to move fast to make sure the pair you want in your size is still in stock. Many brands also provide discounts for students at uni, an incentive you don’t want to let go of. To get notified about clearance sales and exclusive deals, join the brand’s online community, subscribe to the newsletter or follow them on social media so you can receive promo announcements right away.

Browse around online marketplaces.

Online marketplaces such as like eBay offer items that are new or have never been used, pre-loved or slightly used. Sellers on these sites let potential buyers haggle or pay the listed price upfront. If you don’t mind wearing slightly used shoes, these online marketplaces are great places to find a good, affordable pair. If you’re hunting for ankle boots that aren’t sold in shops anymore, someone on eBay probably has them up for sale. It may require a bit of hard work, but you’ll surely score a great deal.

Consider clothing and shoe swaps.

Swapping clothes and shoes with other trendy folks is another way to find ankle boots online. There are websites that provide a platform for people who would rather swap clothes and shoes than sell. If you have items you no longer wear or use such as knee-high boots or a coat in the wrong colour, someone online may want them in exchange for ankle boots and a matching jacket. Swapping online is usually free or may involve a small fee for shipping but it’s definitely a sure-fire way of finding ankle boots at a low price or at no cost at all.

DIY Elina Linardaki Inspired Sandals

 

I have been wanting a pair of the Leather Dizzy Parrot sandals by Elina Linardaki for quite some time now, so I decided to make my very own pair.  It has been forever since I’ve last done a ‘Mel Made‘, and with my blog’s 6th anniversary just around the corner, I thought it would be perfect!

Making my very own Elina Linardaki Sandals made me realize how much I love making things. When I first started my blog, it was mainly focused on DIYs, and making these sandals truly reminded me how much I missed it.

I plan to do more fun DIYs, so be sure to follow along to see what I make next.
