BB Dakota: Sailor Jerry Striped Overalls

I can already tell these will be on repeat for a long time. They are extremely comfortable and lightweight. The fabric is 100% cotton and gives off a slight linen vibe. You can pair them with wedges, tennis shoes, or flats. You can also throw them on as a cover-up for the beach. This little number really knows no bounds.

Christian Louboutin Iriza: A Stunning D'orsay Pump

All that being said, I believe in investing in classic styles of shoes. Unless you “got it like that,” you really don’t want to waste your money on styles that are here today, gone tomorrow. When it comes to designer items, you want to invest in items that will stand the test of time both in quality and style. Hence, my love of nice pumps.

The Power of You

I’ve always found it terribly unfortunate that so many people allow others to define their self-worth. If you think about it, it is kind of insane to defer to others when it comes to determining how much value we have. Maybe you didn’t get into your dream school and that's always haunted you. Perhaps, you’ve been overlooked for a promotion time and time again and you’re at your wit’s end. The examples can be endless, but the sentiment remains: other people dictating what you are or are not worthy of.

How to Protect Suede

HOWEVER, I have to keep it real with my people. As a girl that has at least 10-12 pairs of suede shoes, I have to tell the truth. I have to admit suede is high maintenance (just like yours truly). It can get scuffed and unkempt if you’re not careful. You must be conscious of stains, water spots, etc. It takes hard work to be a suede lover because I don’t know about you, but I am not going to be out in the streets with raggedy shoes.
