Put A Bow On It

When I think about my own personal style, girly and sweet are definitely not the first words that come to mind.  And while I think hearts and bows and frills are all adorable, I don’t normally gravitate towards those types of ensembles.  BUT, every once in a while, I do think it’s fun to put on a girly dress and pay homage to a more feminine style.  And as an added bonus, while most of us are still experiencing in between temps, I absolutely love the option of wearing a button down shirt underneath a dress to change things up from my typical go-to cardi or jean jacket…

Spring Must-Haves (for your feet!)

Before I became an Executive with Macy’s, I was a Senior Footwear Buyer at both Sundance Catalog and Overstock.com.  So it should come as no surprise that I really (I mean really) LOVE shoes!  And so today, because footwear is off the chain this spring, I wanted to share my favorite (and affordable!) picks of the season with all of you…Spring Shoes

Happy hump day, dolls!  And happy shoe shopping!

Downtown Abby

Last week marked our big 2014 planning meetings. And while it was fun to discuss our fashion and growth strategies for the upcoming year, I always especially love the excuse to office out of our beautiful, brand new Macy’s in downtown SLC. And so of course, when Friday rolled around, my hubby and I took full advantage and met for drinks at one of our favorite local downtown spots. It was the perfect way to enjoy some gorgeous spring weather and kick off a nice, relaxing weekend after a week full of craziness.

We all know I am obsessed with pink shoes.  And this bubblegum pink pair is my current favorite because they are amazingly comfortable.  But can we talk about my little bow top for minute?  It’s pretty safe to say that I am beyond obsessed with it.  The teeny, tiny bows are so darn cute and on top of that, they are velveteen-totally reminds me of when I was a kid.  Plus, it was under $15.  Can’t beat that!!!

Hope you all had an amazing weekend.
