Tuesday Temptations: Kitten heel

Tuesday Temptations: Kitten heels

1 || 2 || 3 || 4 || 5 || 6 || 7 || 8

I am undoubtedly a stiletto girl. Probably because when you're under 5 feet you need a little boost to become eye level with the rest of the world. But this fall, I've been noticing the resurgence of kitten and mid-heel shoes. And as much as I love my sky high pumps, it's nice to be a little kinder to my feet. Especially now that I'm a momma!

It was actually this pair by Nine West that really got me excited to see this trend coming back. They're incredibly comfortable but still super chic. I was a little hesitant because the lower heel can sometimes give off old lady vibes, but I think the key is to make sure they have some additional detailing. Right now -- and with almost all of the pairs above -- its 's the ankle strap. It gives the lower heel a more modern, edgy look that I absolutely love. The d'orsay style (like #2) is another way to make this style appropriate for 2014. They also look amazing with boyfriend jeans and anything distressed, which I can promise you I'll be living in this fall!

Welp, I finally did it. I bought a crop top. I decided -- inconveniently -- that I was on board with the trend when I was about 8 months pregnant. Not the most ideal time. But now that I'm 3 months post-baby, I was finally ready to actually wear one. This one from Topshop is perfect because the fit is spot on for my shape -- which is key to making the look work. The length is just right and since I opted for a looser-fitting piece, it balanced out the rest of the outfit. I loved pairing it with a high waisted faux leather pencil skirt, but it would also look great with low rise shorts or jeans that allow a little sliver of skin to show.

Also, I just really feel like black and white needs a major shoutout. It's so classic and you just can never go wrong with this combo. I'm almost 100% positive it's all I'll be wearing this fall.

Happy Monday, loves! Long time, no post. So sorry about that! Baby is keeping me pretty busy these days, but now that my maternity leave is over and I'm actually putting on real clothes on a more regular basis, I'll be able to get back to sharing my outfits with you. Wee!

Speaking of, this romper has been one of my favorites this summer. It's so comfortable, light and easy. Plus, who doesn't love only having to pick out one thing? I can't wait to transition it into fall by adding a blazer and booties.

Here's to a fab week!
