An unexpected holiday shoe style

The holidays are always a great time to dress all fancy shmancy, but, if you live in a state that gets snow, dressing fancy can be a little tricky. Let’s face it, heels aren’t the warmest and you risk slipping on ice and falling on your tush. The older I get, the more practical I start to dress – so, this year, I’m whipping out the flat moto booties for my holiday outfit. Moto booties may sound casual, but throw on a pair of glittery tights, sequin top, leather mini skirt and a bold lip and you’ve got a look that will be sure to impress.

How would you style moto booties for your holiday look?

Shop local holiday gift guide

Oh hello, November? This year has flown by so fast which means the holidays are right around the corner! Last week I had the opportunity to attend Ohio Creative’s gift giving guide event and was able to get a peek into all the goodies local businesses have to offer. With that said, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite gift ideas to help you get a jump start on your shopping this year. Enjoy!

For the interior decorator

Indian Lake creations [$25-$120] – Add some Ohio pride to your home or office with these unique hand crafted wooden wall pieces.



For the entertainer

Paisley Proposal [$15] – As an entertainer, you can never have too many glasses – especially when they’re as awesome as these #repyocity



For the foodie

Bleu & Fig gift box [$100] – I had the pleasure of eating all of the items from this box and the only thing I have to say is that you should get it before the 200 that are made get snatched up!


Lollipop Lush [3.99] – Boozy lollipops? Yes please!

For the bride-to-be

The Paper Vow [$2-$30] – From dazzling bottle tags, invitations and t-shirts that are crazy soft, The Paper Vow has everything you need to help make your brides special day even better.

For the traveler

Daisy Mae Designs [$10-$40] – Anywhere in the world, right at your finger tips. Daisy Mae takes any location you want on the map and adds the design to all kinds of goodies.



For the one who always accessorizes

Rowe Boutique [$40+] – Everyone has a zodiac sign and whether that person believes in it or not, these necklaces are too gorgeous not to wear. The shop also offers plenty of scarves, hats and gloves that make great stocking stuffers.


Adore Jules [$15-$50] – It was great to meet this woman at the gift giving guide event. Her story about why she started her business was so inspiring and the products she creates are so unique.

For the fitness guru

Bend Active [$20-$70] – Whether solid, a unique print, or repping OSU, the options for workout pants are never ending at this place!
