thanks to Emel for alerting me (& you) of Cole Haan’s end of the season sale where these beauties, (seen last summer here in nude) can be yours for $50!
they were go-to sandals last year & i highly recommend adding a pair (or two) to your collection!

daily outfit: the “BR’s Birthday" edition.

with the weather turning cooler at night,

i opted for a mix of summer & fall all in one look.

it was comfortable, classy, & kind of colorful..

my favorite mix!

back in 2007, i bought this pair of Cole Haan + Nike Air Carma pumps to wear to a wedding.

while at the wedding, some wine was consumed, some wine was spilled, & the next thing i knew, my nude pumps somehow gained purple freckles.

after five years of sitting, unable to be worn, in my closet,

i finally decided to do something about it.

insert Kimmel Shoe Repair in Carmel, IN.

all it took was a drop-off on a Saturday afternoon,

a quick request for Chocolate Brown-colored pumps,

a two month (yes, Month!) wait,

& these freshly refinished pumps helped me score Job #3 this afternoon (yay higher ed!)

i am so please with the final result (on every account) that i think i’ll keep ‘em!

gpoyw: the day of Grandma’s 80th birthday (related: it’s Mama J!)

i had no idea what i was going to wear-

it’s something i typically plan out weeks in advance

(i’ve been that way since i was little)

so, like any good fashion detective,

i went to the source.

in one picture, i found the dress, the necklace, and the overall had-to-have look.

daily outfit: the “Father’s Day dinner" edition.

what better way to celebrate my father than with a chiffon tunic, leggings, and sparkly sandals.

let’s be honest, BR could not care less what i wear- he’s seen me throughout the years wearing ruffles & pink, dressing like a tomboy (hello, tall basketball socks!), & now, back to being me.

regardless of his lack in attentiveness to my everyday style, i always enjoy throwing on something printed, a flowery hair accessory, and shoes that resemble something from Greece (with a little more glitz!).

let’s talk shiny shoes, shall we?

last week, the lovely Georgina posted a picture of her beloved J.Crew crushed glitter sandals:

i, along with [presumably] many others, immediately fell in love with the simplicity of the look.

& as luck would have it, i found myself casually walking through the Nordstrom that happens to be a quick walk across the parking lot of my office when i spotted the next best thing(s).

Exhibit A:  Maria Sharapova for Cole Haan

Exhibit B: Enzo Angiolini

& while i may not look half as stunning as G while shimmying around in a pair, 

i believe one of these contenders will gladly fill the gap in my closet that is eagerly calling for a sparkly summer sandal!

Hi! I'm Brooke. Indianapolis is my home & I welcome you to my little nook. I'm a twenty-something girl who was born in the land of corn (Okl.), attended undergrad in the true Sea of Red (Neb.), & eventually found her way back home again after picking up a couple letters behind her name (Kan.) while clinging to an adorable Maltipoo named Bentley. Thank you for stopping by & please feel free to leave a comment (or ask a question) under the "Be Kind" tab at the top... xo, B
