As you can tell I am over the posey pics, so we played around with movement and shadows this go around. The shoes made me do it you know….

I have a tendency to avoid looks that are too matchy-matchy so throwing in a nude pump with some bold electric blue is my way of throwing off the expected. It’s tough to find a good nude pump though, I tell ya what! I searched high and wide. So when ShoeMint offered to team up again, I said sure…… as long as you throw me a nude pump that can kick the tires and light the fires! (Wink wink.) 

As you can see, these do the trick and they really do kick it too the curb on all fronts!  Comfortable believe it or not, not too round, not too pointy, and that perfect hue of blush nude. I can even do my squat jumps and not topple over so we are winning. A few other fab things you should know about ShoeMint in case you aren’t familiar: Free shipping both ways (tops my list!), refined materials such as leather and suede at an affordable price point, AND new styles are added monthly which makes it fun to re-visit. Whenever I login I see what shoes are geared towards my style profile, and always I nod my head and say “mmmmhmmm….you got that right.” On par every time!

Ready to win a pair of your choosing? Winner will be chosen next Tuesday! 

TO ENTER: Head over to ShoeMint, sign up (free and no obligation to buy), and leave a comment letting us know what your choice pair would be if you win!

Nena & Co. + Giveaway

Nena and Co | IHODDouble Twist BraidNena and Co via In Honor of DesignSummer Lounging

When I was in L.A., I had a little time to meet up with some friends I have kept in touch with for a while through the blog world and finally got to connect with in real life! Ali of Nena & Co. was one of them. She is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful gals I have ever met, and she had a heart of gold to match! I loved getting to chat with her about all the behind the scenes ins and outs of our crazy entrepreneur lives. 

And I believe I am not the only one who goes a little nutty for everything in her shop. We wanted to team up again to give one you all a new Day Bag II (it’s dreamy!) AND a pair of Corte Leather Loafers! To enter, head on over to instagram! Good luck friends!

Love, Anna (and Ali!)

Short Stack Reading .01

Printed Shorts
{Three ways to style Printed Shorts this week for eHow}

I have been making a point to take time to read more. It is something I have always loved, but feel the need to do more of it now to keep my mind sharp (which seems to drastically shrink after having kids…). I want to be aware of the different current events in the world, open my eyes to different cultures, and learn about different topics….

A short stack reading list:
Worth pondering: In Search of Meaning

A must read for bloggers: this article by Grace Bonney on Racked.

A book I read in one flight, that I couldn’t put down. (We are reading this for sister book club:))

Watched and learned about the You Are Beautiful project and promptly booked Matthew Hoffman to be a speaker at our Chicago Brand Market workshop.

magazine I am hooked on and newly subscribed to.

6 secrets to being a happy mother - I couldn’t agree more.

And in good humor, if you are familiar with Ann Coultor’s  opinion on soccer and the World Cup, you will appreciate this brilliant article.

I won’t overwhelm you, so we will keep it at that for now! Have a great start to your week!
