Shoe La La


On Friday Aneesh surprised me for my birthday (which is today) with dinner and an evening getaway. We headed to the Liberty Hotel for the night and enjoyed a great meal at Scampo, one of the restaurants in the hotel.  It was a lovely and relaxing evening and I thought it was so thoughtful and sweet of Aneesh to plan a fun night out for my birthday. I wore a dress I recently picked up at the Tahari outlet with these black platform sandals.

I am also guest posting over at the CoolKids blog today on my Top 5 Must Have Shoe Styles For The Spring. I hope you will head over to my friend Betsy's blog and check out my list of the hottest shoe styles for the spring and how to wear them.

And I have to explain the inspiration behind the title of this post. Aneesh and I have been reading the most adorable book to Ariyana called Shoe-la-la.  This sweet rhyming story is about four little girls in search of the perfect shoes, and in the end they realize the best pair of shoes they can find are the ones they make and decorate themselves.  The illustrations are colorful and what I love most about this book is that it sends positive messages to young children about individuality, friendship, and creativity.

You look amazing in this dress & shoes. I have to tell you that I just ordered the same shoes in two colors last friday and when I saw your post this morning I could not believe it. I order them online at shoebuy.com. I order them in back and gray and I can't wait to get them. I also order the Delmar in the beige color. I used promo code Spring15 and got 15% off. Saw them at Dillars for $42.00 dollars more...I feel like I got such a bargain!!

Happy belated birthday! You looks so beautiful in that photo looking through the window. The moment I saw the photo I knew you were at the Liberty Hotel - I've never stayed at teh hotel but I've been dying to visit it for a night. I love your black sandsls. I need some beautiful sandals for the summer. Time to go shoe shopping.
