sunday mornings

sunday mornings.
new beginnings or bittersweet endings?
promises of a fresh start from the muted sun
condemning and damnation from the fiery pulpit crooner.
both turned to sand by her indifference
this moment alone matters.
the here and now, the immediate present
this gift he's given her, staying here
softly beside her in this vast expanse
of white.

Must Have Mondays: Shoe Edition

I have a confession to make...I'm a bit of a shoe-a-holic. I never really noticed until my bf and I started dating and he remarked "Geez Laur, I think that's like the 11th pair of shoes you've bought in the past two months". He was wrong, it was the 12th. I've slowed down on my shoe purchasing but I still can't help picking up a quality, classic pair here and there and I've always got my eyes out for that next covet worthy pair. Here's what I'm loving/lusting over right now:

I love the color of these Tory Burch Reva flats! Will definitely be splurging on these this fall.

Until recently I would never have thought to look for shoes at Ann Taylor, but after seeing these Jackie Bow Sandals featured in a Design Darling post I'm hooked!

It seems like the whole blogosphere is talking about these Etta cap toe satin pumps from J. Crew. With good reason too, the color combination and design are absolutely stunning and from everything I've heard they're super comfortable too! Definitely a must have!

An essential for every shoe collection, these Frye riding boots look classic and ever so comfortable!

Do you have an obsession with shoes? What styles or pairs are you loving right now?

Perfect Handbag

Lately I've been completely obsessed...with Tory Burch that is! I've been in the market for a more  mature, grown up handbag for a few months now but I wasn't having much luck finding something I was completely sold on. But last week as I was doing some Christmas shopping ummm online browsing for myself (haha come on, I'm sure we've all done it once or twice right?) I stumbled on to this bag:

The Robinson Double Zip Tote is absolutely perfect! It's a great size and the color is exactly what I was looking for. And while the price point of the high fives, $575 to be exact, is a lot higher than I'd normally spend on a bag I can't help thinking it would be a good investment. 

What do you think? Do you have your eyes on a certain higher ticket item?
