This morning is a favorite memory from our recent trip to San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. The early hours there are my favorite, when nobody else is awake and the town is completely quiet. The empty cobblestone streets in the morning remind me of a movie set. We spent the morning exploring Parque Juarez and later stopped for croissants and cafe con leche at my favorite cafe. It was a cool 60 in the mornings there, and now that I am back in scorching hot Texas I am missing San Miguel’s weather terribly!

I collaborated with Tory Burch to style the new fall Gigi pumps for this shoot. It’s such a chic reincarnation of her iconic flats. I love a low-heel style like this, especially for a weekend get-away. These shoes were just the thing for hours of wandering the city, and so perfect for dinner with a dramatic printed skirt. This50’s skirt is a special vintage piece I picked up recently, I love the sequin embellishment at the hem. I have the Gigi’s in both teal and maroon…I’ve been wearing them with cuffed up 501’s and vintage peasant blouses the last few weeks. They’ve totally freshened up my usual uniform.

Marni

My mom and I have been texting each other about these Marni boots since we saw them online. We planned dream outfits to wear them with before we even got these shoes (cropped flares and vintage quilted vests!). Finally, my mom was the first to cave and order them once they went on sale. I thought my resolve was stronger, but after I tried her Marni boots on I couldn’t stop thinking about them. There was a zebra and gold version in a size 9 taunting me on Farfetch. I could no longer resist. They’re mine now, they actually just got here in the mail today and I’m wearing them as I type. A shoe like this doesn’t come around too often….I’d be lying if I didn’t admit they make me incredibly happy! A shoe like this is so unique it will always stand the test of time.

There is a version in of this Marni boot in all white that is also incredibly cute, if you love them as much as I do!
