Comfortable, Stylist Shoes

It's not easy to be fashionable and comfortable at the same time. I am usually walking way too fast and not paying attention to where I'm going, which usually doesn't end well. At this point in my life, I've decided to stick with wearing flats on these wide feet and finding something that's stylish and affordable has been the impossible dream.

I never thought I'd be doing my shoe shopping on Amazon, but it's turned out to be the perfect place to buy shoes that fit and are interesting looking as well.

This fun, colorful pair of Socofy wedges were the first ones that I tried, and I couldn't be happier. I can't believe how many people (even people I don't know!) ask me where I bought them. They have lots of support, and even on days when I've been on my feet all day long they have been true comfort zones. You can buy your own pair of these beauties here.

Then I discovered these Labato leather loafers for $17! They are so comfortable and are so stylish I thought they wouldn't last long, but I was wrong. I love traveling in them, and they work wherever the road takes me.

I even got stuck in a snowstorm in Buffalo, NY and they came through that with flying colors! Speaking of colors, I love these so much I bought them in almost every color they offer, and it's extensive. You can buy these here, or on my Lifestylist Amazon page. Let me know what you think!

When I Grow Up...

This is who I want to be when this Lifestylist "grows up." I see her every year at the Walnut Hill Driving Competition and she always looks like she is enjoying life to the fullest - win or lose.
I had thought that my equestrian days were over, but after attending this competition I might still have a few good years ahead of me. You are never too old to enjoy the things that you love. Here's to the great life!

Finding My Fit

Believe it or not, I hate shopping, especially for clothes. No matter what I weigh I feel fat, I buy more than I need to because I don’t want to have to repeat the experience any time soon, and I HATE trying on clothes in a dressing room. It used to be so bad that I would just buy everything thinking that I could just bring back what I didn’t want when I tried them on the in privacy of my own home, and never fail I’d lose the receipt or wait to long to take things back.

Yesterday I had to head to the mall to get some new clothes to wear at The International Builders Show and the Kitchen and Bath Show. Macy’s was my first stop, and it reminded what I hate shopping. It was a mess, no one wanted to help me, nothing was organized by size and there were literally clothes thrown all over the floor and none of the employees were making any effort to pick things up.

I’m rethinking buying my clothes online - there has to be a better way. How do you like to shop? I’m thinking that finding some online stores that offer free shipping and I can return things to the store might be a better choice for me.

Supporting Local Businesses

Have you ever thought about who actually owns the company that you are doing business with and if the profits are kept (and spent) in your community? A a Lifestylist® we travel so much and shop all over the country so we can't always buy local, but we make a point fo doing it when we can. I drive my customers crazy when they ask me where I want to go for lunch and I say to their favorite local spot - pressure! But after they know that's what I'll enjoy they have helped me discover some amazing finds that would have never been on my radar. Who would have thought that my favorite place to dine in Orange County would be in a mall?

Yesterday we did our usual stops at our farmers markets. we've started going to one that is further away but the people are always so darn nice, and we've made some great finds there. White Rock Local Market continues to impress us, and has us coming back.

My favorite this week is the Chandler Family Farm. They are in Mabank, Texas and their tomatoes were beautiful and tasty as well! After going back home and checking our their Facebook page I learned that it's a farm that is owned by Jennifer Chandler - a second generation farmer and almost every other comment on her page is about how nice she is. That's someone I want to support and do business with.

Looking forward to learning more about Jennifer and enjoying more of her produce in the days to come.
