Marmi Shoes Grand Opening


I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening event at Marmi Shoes last night in Memphis.  Marmi is a fourth generation family owned company out of St. Louis with 24 stores nationwide.  They specialize in comfort and size variations, with options available in wide, medium, narrow, slim from sizes 4-13!


Celebrity Stylist and fashion guru George Brescia was there signing copies of his book Change Your Clothes, Change Your Life.   He was a doll and was so sweet!


The store was packed and the energy was great for the event.  The employees and staff from Marmi's parent company, Wolff Shoe, couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating.  If you are looking for a true stellar customer experience then look no further! 


You all know that I've never met a leopard print that I didn't like! I love this unique take on a loafer flat with the flare of leopard print.  


And this blue flat with the sequined buckle reminded me of the Carrie Bradshaw wedding shoe from Sex & The City! 


Thank you so much to Marmi who invited me to attend this event and please check out Marmi Shoes for comfort and style! 

Thursday Randoms

I have been looking for a cute dress to wear to a baby shower next weekend ... I cannot seem to find anything.  I went to Anthropologie the other day and tried on some dresses to no avail.  



I actually really like the one on the left maybe with red heels?  I know it doesn't look all that flattering in the picture but it was much cuter in person.  

I really love this Topshop dress as well ... but how long does their shipping take? Does anyone know?

....................................................................................................................................

Madewell is having an awesome promo right now!

Basically I want everything in there right now ... 

This pullover sweater comes in three colors and is so soft and cozy. 

This Tribune dress is seriously the best little easy black dress ... such a great blank slate for layering in the fall. 

Then there's these jeans that I have that are a great dupe to the popular J.Brand ones. 


One of my all time favorite booties, the Billie boot is also included in this promo ... 
And lastly, hello ... everyone needs this scarf

....................................................................................................................................

 I randomly strolled into Forever 21 the other day only to find some adorable and affordable booties! You all know I can't pass up a pair of booties!

The ones on the right are really cute on ... here they are on the model:

I also got this dress there that is much cuter in person.  It is very well made for Forever 21.

J.Crew Factory is also having a 30% off event online with code "SALE30"

Tulip Hem Dress


And of course, the excursion vests are excluded from the promo, but how freaking cute is this new print they have? 




....................................................................................................................................

And if the sales above weren't enough, J.Crew is offering 25% off full-priced styles with code "SHOPFORFALL"

....................................................................................................................................

I told you all in a post a while back about me losing my job due to budget cuts in April and how it has been a rough year.  I was able to get a fun job a couple of months ago at a Yoga Studio, but since April I had been applying to a certain kind of "hard to get" job with no avail. I finally secured a series of interviews last month and accepted a job offer last week!  So, I officially start a business lady professional job (cue Romy & Michelle's HS Reunion) the first week of October.



I am beyond excited to get back into the hustle and grind of a career and I am so thankful to have been given the opportunity to embark on a career that I've always wanted to try.  I have my training in Chicago in a couple of weeks ... I haven't been to Chicago in a long time, so please tell me any recommendations on places to eat or shop! 

....................................................................................................................................

Have a great day, friends!

Madewell Albion Plaid


Dress: Madewell | Booties: Old Navy | Necklace: J.Crew Factory | Watch: Daniel Wellington c/o (use code "pipmegan" for 15% off | Bracelets: J.Crew & David Yurman

I knew that I had to have this dress as soon as I walked into Madewell.  It is so perfect - it has plaid, it's flannel, and it has pockets! Also it is lined with a buffalo check pattern that shows when you roll up the sleeves. It's longer in the back than the front, which I think is great for those of us who are paranoid about our bums showing in dresses that are too short.  Basically it's the best dress and you need it.  





Guest Post: Mom's Med Minder

Today Kelly will be guest posting from Mom's Med Minder.  I have known Kelly for years- her little sister is one of my best friends and Kelly was always the "cool" older sister.  Read below for info from her new company. 

Hi everyone!  Thanks so much to my sweet friend Megan who is allowing me to guest post today.  I have been a daily blog reader and on-and-off blogger myself for years (I used to have a blog called Pink Daisies), and Pretty In Pink Megan is always on my list.  I have gotten so much inspiration and decorating, fashion, recipe and parenting tips from blogs.  One of my favorite all-time things is to get the girls to bed, get cozy on the couch, make a cocktail or glass of wine...have HGTV on in the background.....and scroll through blogs.  

Megan is letting me post so that I can tell you about my new company Mom's Med Minder.  I also have a blog that I would love for you to visit.  I hope I get to be on your daily read list.

My inspiration for this new business venture are these two:


These are my twins Ava and Charlotte. They call Megan "Meggy" and are like magnets to her.  They appreciate good fashion. :)   


A few years ago Char had pneumonia and Ava had strep at the same time.  Between fevers, antibiotics, breathing treatments, etc, I was going nuts trying to keep all the meds straight. I was doing my usual grab a piece of mail and write down when I gave a dose so I could remember the time.  That wasn't working great, so I made a poster to check off each time I gave them their meds.  

I started looking for a good medication reminder system on the app store or on-line, and I just wasn't thrilled with any of them.  Ease of use and the look of a site makes such a difference to me on whether or not I want to use it.  Plus, I wanted to be able to save the info so I could print it out to show the doc or look back on it.  It's amazing how many details you will forget by the time you get to the dr or years down the road.

So, the site was born, and the mobile app is only a few weeks from being launched. I am really proud of it, and I really want it to be successful.

Becoming a free user is super easy and quick, and it lets you use the MedMinder function.  If you upgrade and become a member for  just $12 a year, you can use all of the capabilities, and it really is neat.

I would love your feedback.

My sister and best friend is helping me get it off the ground.  This is she and I here.  I'm the one on the right. :)


​And this is she and her sweet family:


Thanks again Megan for letting me visit!  I appreciate everyone's support and hope to hear from you!
