If you’ve ever walked into a Nordstrom shoe department, you already know what I’m talking about. Once you walk into the department, you are greeted right away. I love that about Nordstrom. Their customer service is always five star!

If I choose to purchase online, I usually get a couple sizes and style, try on what works and return what doesn’t. Yay for free returns! For these particular wedges, I tried them on in store. A friendly store associate told me to try the 8.5 versus my usual size 9 since they do stretch and I had some room. I’ve already worn these espadrilles on two occasions and almost half a day on my feet and no blisters or sores to report. Now, that is saying a lot considering I’m holding a baby 75% of the time! Besides comfort, the price point is below $80, and a perfect spring shoe. The only con would be, I wish the shoe came in more colors and different heights. I chose the gray since the color was really flattering with my skin tone and versatile to be worn with spring whites and classic blacks. What’s cool is that, at 4 1/4″ height and 1″ platform, you don’t feel the height and it is incredibly flattering. Especially worn with dresses or jeans.

If you were hesitant, get this! When you buy Treasure & Bond, Nordstrom will donate 2.5% of net sales to organizations that work to empower youth. How cool is that? I love when a company gives back. Also, this sandal has 625 reviews, most of which say these are incredibly COMFORTABLE and they wished they purchased these earlier. I know because I read most of those comments. Convincing me to order the tan ones as well. What do you think?

I feel like I’m way too old to be wearing tiny shorts so I’ve been looking for longer distressed shorts. Here I’m wearing some faves from FRAME and also wearing some longer version, because I’m not in college anymore. I love how denim shorts are terribly versatile. Here they are dressed up with wedges, a blouse and a trench or dressed down with a swimsuit and flip flops for the beach. I feel like they’re a great investment for any spring or summer wardrobe, so get your favorites now before they’re gone. Speaking of back in stock, my blouse is back in stock!

Happy Friday Eve!


We’re back in LA and school is out. While I have mixed feelings about having all four kids at home, I have to say I’m excited to explore more of the LA area, namely the hills, the zoo, Venice Beach, and Lacy Park for picnics. And to those of you who ask how I keep my white jeans white? I never put them in the dryer. Instead, I leave them on the dry rack and the sun does my bleaching. Cheers to lots of exploring, summertime, and malbec on the porch. Have a great week!
