Royal Obsession: Blue & Gold Details

Wow, Friday already?! This was such a busy week for me! I wasn’t sure if I was even going to have the time to crank something out for the blog. Work has been crazy hectic and I’m still house hunting like crazy. The housing market in North Dallas is such a nightmare.  Since so many people are moving here from Cali, where the prices are outrageous, you have to be ready to pay asking price or higher within 24 hours of a house going on the market. This is at least the case for the new homes or neighborhoods that I’ve been looking into. I just keep trucking on and will hopefully find something before the year is up! Fingers crossed.

Today I’m stepping a little out of my comfort zone. This is just a “hey, look I have cute clothes on” post, haha, or more like a style feature. I really just wanted a chance to show off these super cute shoes because I'm in love with them! I don’t really like having pictures taken of me so this was a little different. I’m going to try to do more and more because I want this blogging journey to be an outlet for creative and pushing me to do new things! Two main staples for me, regardless of season, are blue and gold. It really doesn’t matter what shade of blue, I love it! And I honestly used to despise yellow gold but it is really making its way into my heart lately! I think that means I'm getting older *sigh*

These royal beauties were a gift from Camille of The Cocooners aka my photographer, friend, blogging bestie, work husband (yeah, you read that right). She got them from Saks Fifth Ave and didn’t love her feet in them so I got them instead – yay! I love having a friend to share clothes with, especially shoes! They are lightweight and extremely comfy since the blue straps are so stretchy!

On any given day, I am rocking something from Kendra Scott. Whether it be a simple necklace or statement earrings, I always have something of hers on! This cute lock cuff that I got from an adorable online boutique, Audrey Pamela, also comes in rose gold. They will frequently run deals or giveaways on their Instagram but everything online is already a great price!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at something new that you may start seeing more of! Let me know what you think! And also what are some of your staple colors or pieces that you can't go without no matter the season?

  1. I love the purse and shoes! The shoes likely wouldn't like my feet either but man they are cute. And the purse is one of my favorite colors.

  2. I LOVE this color, and that's saying a lot since I don't drift from my neutrals, haha. Those shoes are so gorgeous and wish I could get a pair that'd fit me (I have super small feet).

  3. I need those shoes, haha! I love the color. That purse is so pretty too!

  4. Love, love, love those shoes! The color is gorgeous!

  7. I stumbled this post earlier today and came back for a comment. Gah I love that little bangle but those shoes are the real show stopper. Wow! I love the height, but they look like they'd be comfie and easy to walk in. Two very important things for me. ;)

  8. Love your outfit! The color combo is just lovely!

    Have an awesome day!
