Arm candy lust

I don't own any Kiel James Patrick yet....I have posted about their camo bracelet before. Which I still think I want need.
Then I got this email in my inbox yesterday....and woah. Love.

A pearl version? Adorable. Definitely not instead of the camo, but I think I now need both, side by side.

 Camo and pearls sounds about perfect for me....

Packing planning - South Carolina

A couple fun work trips are coming my way....first off to Charleston/Brays Island next week. 

The events are:

Fly there Wednesday
Dinner with Garden & Gun founder Rebecca Darwin Wednesday night
Ladies Sporting clays shoot at Brays Island Plantation Thursday
Fly home Friday

Super excited! I have never been to Charleston, I love Garden & Gun Magazine, I am THRILLED to be invited, and I obviously love to shoot :)

Here is the kick off to my packing list....

Wednesday - Travel Outfit:

the Eileen Fisher T Shirt Dress- I LOVE this thing! It still looks fabulous and is so comfortable for travel.  Garnet hill carries them, and they are often on sale.

Depending on the weather I will pair it with ankle length leggings and probably ballet flats.
these Cole Haan's are my favorite...easy on/off, and like wearing slippers!

Throw in a scarf (for warmth on the airplane) and you have my perfect travel outfit! This one is on sale at Nordstrom...

And this bag, I think I am finally going to spring for. I love Filson.....i love the style, how rustic and durable they are, and i love this updated styling.

Up next, Wednesday dinner and Thursday shooting!

Learning to love my big feet

I have big feet.  My college roommate told me once "you're feet are HUGE for such a little body". I am not sure about the "little body" now vs college, but either way, proportionally, my feet are LARGE.

In the last two years I have learned to love this.  All it took? Realizing that my ginormous feet are not a popular size, which means amazing shoe finds.  When i was younger, and ever so briefly wore a size 7 or 8, shoes were always gone in my size. 
Now that I am a 10, I am happy to find my size usually available and on clearance. 

The universe works in strange ways :)

Here are a few favorites....

 DVF on clearance at bloomingdales....
These puppies I have wanted for over a year....seriously.  LOVE.  On sale now at neiman marcus....I am trying to convince my husband they are an amazing early birthday gift :)

Tuesday...what I wore


Tuesday... by shotgunsandpearlsblog 

Still winter....still wearing a whole lotta black. Not just because it's my favorite color, but as a red head, it's a good color with my skin/hair.   You all know I am a huge fan of the T shirt dress....paired with tights and boots, it is one of my favorite outfits.
Who says you can''t wear chevron when you sell shotguns? :)
