So no where in my closet is there a single edgy 'trendy' piece. It's a sea of florals and polka dots. Peter pan collars and decadent lace. Not to mention simple A-line shapes with full skirts. I know what I like when it comes to clothing but apparently I can still shock myself every now and then by buying...

Studded heels?

I cannot tell you why, but I love these shoes to death. I'm still asking myself why I like them, why I bought them, and frankly if I've gone mad. I'm just not an edgy, trendy girl. Never have been, never will be- I don't have it in me. But these shoes, I'm just so drawn to them. They make me feel powerful and confident. A kick a** pair of shoes can do that to a girl.

Can I also mention that they were $10? Yep, pretty much the deal of the century and I am one very, very happy lady. Okay, add crazy along with that!

Anywho, enough shoe lust (because I really could go on forever). I'm getting my blog redone a bit by the lovely Jessica of Midwest Muse who is honestly incredible. An adorable gal, with impeccable style, who does lovely design work. She actually designed my current blog layout! She lives in Ohio and not too far from Kent. Expect many a blogger meet up this coming fall!

Just wanted to let you know that if you see some changes, don't be alarmed. It should all be finished and finalized in a few days. I figured with a new stage of my life starting in a WEEK (can't believe it) my blog should reflect that, as well

Thank you for all of the love and support you give me, as always! Hope you're all well :)

With much love, Lauren.

AHHH! Those shoes are SO B.A.! Work it girl. Don't you love that shoes can do that to you?! And for $10? No regrets. Strut your stuff girl (Crap. Now I have that old Cheetah Girls song stuck in my head.) :p

Can't wait to see the new layout!

I love this outfit! You look all adorable and soft at the top with your wavy hair and beret (and I mean 'soft' in a nice way, and mostly as an opposite to 'edgy' but just go with it) and then bam! spike shoes! Woo. I am also not usually a fan of spikes, studs etc. They feel too much like what I wore as a teen when I was all into grunge, but with what you are wearing they look really cool. Hope you are taking them to college.

Um yes. Those studded heels are so awesome! I think they'll work wonderfully in your wardrobe. I love a juxtaposition of an edgy piece with a sweet outfit.
