I have a love/hate relationship with Zara. You see, they only make a handful of their shoes in size 5 and you’re lucky to even snag a pair because they always sell out. The most annoying part, their size 5 fit me perfectly and the shoes tend to be really comfortable (um, hello?!!). As I’m sure you’ve heard me complain many times on this blog, shoes are SO incredibly hard for me to find. I’m a small size 5 and nothing ever fits. Why, why can’t you make 5 a standard size, Zara?!

I spotted these leopard heeled sandals on the site a couple weeks ago and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw they came in size 5. I didn’t hesitate one second (things sell out quick) and snagged them immediately. I’m so glad I did because they’re perfection! They fit nicely and you can tell the leather softens over time. I just love the little pop of leopard. So good!

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mike and I did some binge watching of House of Cards, met up with friends for drinks, shopped for our groomsmen suits, and spent the rest of the weekend working (wah wah). Lately, if we’re not both working, we’re doing wedding stuff, so the fact that we were able to see friends and have some down time was an added plus. We’ve been in full wedding planning mode as of late. Mike had time off for ski week, so we were able to tackle some of the bigger things. We started registering, which is a whole process in and of itself, we had our food and wine tasting, we visited the venue with our photographer and coordinator, and I’ve been nailing down my accessories for the big day. There’s been so much going on, I don’t even know if my heads on straight! Let’s just say there has been a lot of wine  consumed.

P.s. Can you believe it’s already March?! I know February cheats us on days, but man, time is flying by. 4 month countdown has begun. Reality check, much? Yikes!

Since beginning 2015 with a new outlook on the outfits worn on Crystalin Marie, I’ve tried to make extremely conscious purchases as well as shop my own closet. The old me would continue to add the newest ripped jeans to be wardrobe, and while I still have my eye on said jeans (love these), my closet and style won’t evolve and grow unless I make changes. On my quest to wear pieces other than destroyed denim, I’ve discovered a new-found love for some old favorites. I don’t think I’ve worn this Rebecca Taylor blouse in over a year and half. Crazy right? I’ve always loved how the colorblock raglan sleeves balanced out the feminine silhouette of the blouse, but for some reason, I don’t reach for it as much as I should. And then there’s these Wayf track pants. Again, I probably haven’t worn them in over a year, which is just downright dumb, because man, they’re SO comfortable! If you haven’t added a pair of track pants to your wardrobe yet, I highly recommend it. They’re a nice alternative to jeans and you can get away with eating the entire pizza and sneaking it that second or the third glass of wine.

Two old favorites combine to make one of my favorite outfits, ever! This color combination is just too good too!
