Jeans + Heels


...is there anything better? Particularly when the heels are neon metallic snakeskin...with fluorescent pink leather piping. I wore these so often while I lived across the pond that the cobblestones broke the heels straight off. They are repaired, but delicate, so I carefully pick and choose when I wear them.  Fluorescent cashmere makes the cut.


Most people save special furs for special occasions, and for that matter save ALL "special" items for just the perfect moment or event, but I always wonder...WHY? Why keep our best gems and most fun closet treasures reserved for once or twice a year? No way! Stack on the rhinestones, pile on the cuffs, cashmere and fur, throw lots of gold into the mix - pair with ripped jeans so you're not toooo over the top - slap on some hot pink lipstick, don't waste time brushing your hair - just run with it - and you won't be able to stop smiling. I promise. {just try it...then let me know how it goes}

THEN we had an event last night that the same stole was perfect for, and I paired it with one of my all time favorite dresses ever, though I use the term "my" dress loosely...since it is not mine, but my mother-in-law's!! It is probably 50 years old, but nothing short of a true gem. I absolutely adore it. I wish I would have had a gold clutch {or hot pink?!} that I could have paired with it...I am on the lookout!

  2. Absolutely agree how to wear those treasures and not save them for one time in a blue moon(: I just do NOT like wearing jeans ... I think everyone does all the time and I am so bored of them as well as they do feel like too casual almost construction type... Even with cowboy boots I prefer denim skirts(: but I love the way you wear it. That is how I would do it ...if I had to wear jeans... Your dress is beautiful ... Ciao z

  5. awesome, as usual! I hope the stole is faux, but I'm afraid it's not:( After researching what goes into making a fur, all the inhumanity and cruelty and greed-I'll never do real fur again!

  8. LOVE that inherited dress. How incredible. Sheridan, your makeup always looks effortless and flawless. Would you ever do a post about your skin/makeup regime? I am a full time mom of two toddlers and I am always wishing I had such an effortless style and am constantly in search of the "perfect red lip" for those few occasions when I go out with the hubby or girlfriends. thanks!

  10. Your fur stole is incredible! It looks perfect with both outfits and what a great reminder to break out the "special occasion" pieces for everyday.
    And I have to agree with Emily, I would love a makeup post! I bought the L'Oreal Pink Vinyl lipstick after you mentioned it and adore it :)
