I can't believe it's been over two years since my last fashion-focused blog post.


I blame my growing children with their insanely busy after-school schedules and just life in general. I still love to share great shopping finds on Instagram (I'm classychaos), and on Facebook (did you catch the cheaper replacement of my beloved J.Crew Minnies I posted?) and on twitter (check out the cowl neck sweater I scored for super cheap at Banana Republic). Nice, right?




I'm very honored to have been given a gig (more on that below) to focus on fashion once a month. So instead of spreading my finds all over the Internet, like I've been doing for two years, I hope to combine everything in one post. I'm far far far from being fashion forward - I'm just a mom of three super great kiddos that likes to look good and when I find something that works, I want to share it with my friends. That's probably why my best friend and I show up at the same place wearing similar outfits. We swap fashion secrets with one another.


Which brings me to my latest gig.


Remember this ancient video?


The kiddos were so little and I had no where to wear my sexy red boots (from "You by Crocs") so I just rocked them at home, the best I could. Crocs got a hold of that video, shared it on their social media outlets and fastforwardacoupleofyearslater my husband has been wearing the Santa Cruz Slip-on Loafer religiously and I still wear my sexy red boots on date nights.


For the next year I will be working with Crocs as a "CrocsStyle Insider". I don't know how much of the program I'm allowed to disclose online; but, it's really exciting. Honestly, there's so much fun in store for not only me but you, my friends, as well! I've seen their spring/summer styles (not yet released) and they are cool. Really cool! Next month I'm off to Miami to "test out" their spring/summer collection. My hope is to give you the inside scoop of pairing outfits with comfortable but stylish shoes - just like I would do with my best friend. I'm a big fan of re-using my wardrobe but adding new (cheap) accessories, so that too, will be a focus. Gah! So much fun. I'm over the moon excited to be talking about fashion & shoes again. Yay!

I'm so excited for you, Pauline!

I remember that video!

The Crocs cork sole wedges are my favorite go to dressy shoe. I wear them all day at school and don't even take them off once I'm home cooking dinner!

Can't wait to see what's in store for you! Congrats, friend!

I'm so happy for you!

With my feet issues, all but two pairs of my shoes are Crocs. They're more than just the 'gardening clogs' that people see at amusement parks. And YOU are the perfect person to show off how fashionable one can be wearing Crocs. :)

You do know you got me hooked on You by Crocs when you reviewed the cute ballet flats in bright colors. I got 2. And my favorite pair of strappy high heels are from You by Crocs. SO thanks for a great shoe obsession.

Congratulations and all is fab. . . but who makes the fantastic big, square sunglasses that I have been looking for since I lost my favorite pair at the park???
