Red High Heels

Who can resist a pair of red patent leather pumps with a bow on them? Not me! (obviously) Paired with my favorite pair of skinny jeans and a black faux leather jacket, these red hots take center stage.

pencil me in...

When I used to work in the business world I wore pencil skirts ALL the time. They're so chic, classic  and flattering. Sadly for me, there's very limited space in my closet for pencil skirts as a stay at home mom. This one, however, I could not pass up. It's got faux leather paneling, which gives it an edge and makes it perfect for date night. If your work environment is anything beyond casual this is a must have for your wardrobe and if like me, you love pencil skirts and dressing up, this is a must have for everything outside of running around with kids :)
