Wish List Wednesday

I recently stumbled upon a shoe company called Oka B.   The shoes come in a variety of colors and styles.  The embellished jeweled ones are my favorite.  How cute are the pink flats with turquoise stones?  The best price about these shoes is that they are all under $100 and most under $50!!!!  You can buy them on Amazon or by clicking HERE

Bon Voyage

I must admit I have total luggage envy.  Take this March, I was in Miami next to the chicest girl.  There she stood in her rainbow Valentino gladiator sandals, white jeans, pastel cashmere cardigan next to the most beautiful suit case.  I on the other hand was reaching for my black honeymoon Samsonite, which I had just noticed had sprouted a hole, making its already thread bare appearance even worse.  I decide then and there I was going to upgrade my travel “look”.  I found some great options below.  I am of course leaning toward the leopard but I think the British Flag design might to the trick too!!!

Bon Voyage
