The Comfiest Block Heels for Spring

SHOP THE OUTFIT

If you know me, you know I LOVE me some shoes. So of course I jumped at the idea of reviewing a pair from ONO Footwear's spring 2018 collection. I had never heard of this particular brand before so I was excited to check them out! I'm all for discovering new brands and sharing the knowledge with my girls..aka YOU!

If you can't already tell from the majority of my pictures, I wear a ton of neutral shoes. It's kinda my thing. So when I went to Dillards.com to see the collection it was no shock that my eyes were immediately drawn to these ONO block heel beauties! These gorgeous shoes will make the perfect accessory to all your spring outfits, and to top it off they are incredibly comfortable!

I'm not kidding you that when I put these shoes on for the first time I was honestly shocked just how comfy they felt on my feet! The special-designed footbeds offer airy cushioning in the heel, ball of foot, and arch. These amazing features allow you to walk around in them for hours on end! Buttery leather and supple suede surround the foot in softness..are you convinced how amazing they are yet? You can really tell that no detail was missed in designing these heels!

The heel isn't too high at 3" so they're super easy to walk in and spend the entire day/night in.  If neutrals aren't your thing, no worries because they also come in black (which I think I also need!) Spring weddings and special events are coming up and the ONO Lace Up Block Heel is the perfect addition to all the cute spring dresses you'll be rockin!

SKI OUTFIT ESSENTIALS WITH SUN & SKI

SHOP THE LOOK

As some of you might know, last month I went on a snowy vacation to Breckenridge, CO! As a Texas girl, I rarely ever see snow and have a very limited amount of clothes appropriate for that type of extreme cold weather. Luckily my friends at Sun & Ski swooped in to help me find the perfect outfit and gear to get me back on the mountain with confidence. I visited the Dallas Sun & Ski location to check out their HUGE selection of ski attire and finalize my outfit for the slopes!

Upon my arrival I was greeted by the friendliest staff who made the experience so welcoming and fun! Sun & Ski has a wide range of winter wear brands but I ended up going with mainly Spyder gear for my outfit. The quality, style and extreme warmth of the Spyder clothing won me over. My ski jacket was probably my favorite piece of my outfit. Not only is it super flattering, but the whole look of it is sleek and on trend! I love how classic my black and white outfit looked on the Breck resort mountain, not to mention slimming - even with all the layers! I would recommend sizing up in the jacket, for reference I'm wearing a size 6. I chose a slim fit ski pant that I found to be very flattering and less bulky than the traditional ones I've worn in the past. 

You can shop my full ski outfit as you scroll down, but for now I’ll move on to my ski lessons at the Sun & Ski store in Grapevine! First of all, I had NO idea ski lessons outside of a ski resort actually existed. I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to have a 1:1 private lesson before my trip. After a 6 year hiatus from skiing, I was due for a BIG refresher. If you’re a new skier or just need some practice, I highly recommend taking ski lessons at the Grapevine Sun & Ski! After an hour long session from renowned ski instructor, Jim Chase, I felt so much more confident in my skiing ability! Once my ski outfit and lessons were complete I was more than ready to be wheels up to Breck!

Once I arrived in Breckenridge and witnessed just how cold it really was (I’m talking 10 degrees people) – I was super nervous about being cold on the mountain. My doubts were quickly diminished once I was literally on the ski lift (as it was snowing pretty hard) and felt SO warm. All of my Spyder gear I picked out truly paid off and I can’t say enough good things about the quality and warmth they provided me while I was trying not to fall down the mountain! You can find more Spyder clothing on the Sun & Ski website. 

When the weather is that cold, it’s super important to layer up – I had on 3 top layers and 3 bottom and I was just fine. I received a ton of compliments on my ski jacket from other girls at the ski resort and lodge during my stay – which I thought was pretty cool since there were so many people and the fact that I stood out with my look truly says something. If you’re trying to find a fashionable ski or snowboard outfit and you are into amazing quality and customer service, I highly suggest checking out Sun & Ski! I’ll warn you that you may be overwhelmed with the vast selection – but hey, that’s never a bad thing is it? 

My ski lessons definitely paid off because after a few runs I felt perfectly at ease and ready to tackle the blues! I only fell twice during my time skiing in Breck and I have to say I owe a big thanks to my instructor Jim for helping me feel more confident! If you ever visit Breck, I recommend having an après ski moment at Tbar after the slopes for a great atmosphere with delish cocktails and food! 

Restaurants to try while in Breck:

Tbar - On-mountain après hot spot on Peak 8 - Try the buffalo chicken dip (trust me)

Relish – Cozy atmosphere right off main street with delicious food

Park & Main – Casual lunch spot (Try the grilled cheese & tomato basil soup)

Moe’s Original BBQ – Loved this spot! Super casual and great BBQ

Ember – More upscale with unique and tasty dishes

Blue River Bistro – Try the reverse Happy Hour 9pm-midnight (Two for one Martinis & Apps)

Crepes a la carte – An absolute MUST and worth the wait! One word: Nutella 

Mi Casa – This place is also a must! It won me over with the chicken tacos and variety of salsas!

I’ve also heard great things about Hearthstone and Twist!

Snow mobiling was one of the best experiences of my life! I would recommend Colorado Back Country to anyone looking for a thrill in a gorgeous winter wonderland! The actual mountain where we rode was in Red Cliff, which is about an hour drive from Breckenridge. Luckily the company we used offered a complimentary shuttle that will give you a ride to and from wherever you're staying in Breck. There were several times while exploring that I thought to myself, "Is this real life?" The scenery was incredible and so magical in the best possible way!

THE BEST OF ATHLETIC SHOES WITH SHOE CARNIVAL

File Feb 12, 7 53 24 PM.jpeg

SHOP THE OUTFIT

If you’re anything like me, a new pair of shoes makes you feel and look your best! I'm partnering with Shoe Carnival to style two pairs of athletic shoes that make me feel both stylish and confident. I don’t know what it is but every single time I bring home a new pair of shoes I am instantly in a fantastic mood! Maybe that means I need to buy a new pair more often – oh wait – that could be dangerous! Some might say I already have quite the unhealthy addiction when it comes to shoes. With that being said, Shoe Carnival has the best selection and variety of shoes ranging from dressy, athletic, casual and more! I especially love to shop at Shoe Carnival for all the latest on trend athletic shoes. I find it super helpful how Shoe Carnival offers an Athletic Lookbook of the Top 10 trends! How cool is that? After seeing this post, you may recognize two that are on the list! I shopped at the Dallas Shoe Carnival location to find my perfect pair of athletic shoes. I was helped by the friendliest staff that made the entire experience super easy and fun!

With every new year I set a resolution to become a healthier version of myself. Little tweaks here and there can make a big difference in the long run. One of the ways I’ve been working on that this year is by working out on a regular basis. I'll admit it, I totally credit my motivation for staying fit with fresh new workout gear. If there’s one thing I highly recommend when it comes to working out, it's a GREAT quality pair of shoes. If you don’t have shoes that not only fit perfectly but you can move in and be comfortable – think again because you’ll regret it after a few trips to the gym. 

The pair of Adidas I’m wearing here are beyond comfy and incredibly light weight! When I first put them on, I was amazed at how good they felt on my feet! The cloudfoam midsoles make me feel like I'm walking on air (no joke). Comfort is the number one thing I look for in my athletic shoes, so you can imagine my excitement when I got these beauties! I'm also a fan of the feminine touch of the shoes with the light ice purple color. The neutral color makes them perfect for matching well with so many different workout outfits! If these shoes aren't right for you, I know you'll find the perfect pair on Shoe Carnival's Athletic Lookbook that shows the top 10 trends.

Not every pair of sneakers are truly appropriate for working out, and for these type I usually wear them with a casual everyday look. These VANS are a classic and just the cutest for the spring and summer! I know I'll wear mine nonstop, and how fun is the light pink color? I also think they would be great to travel in with leggings and an oversized top/hoodie since they're so casual and comfy! You can't go wrong with a fun shoe like this - I honestly can't believe it took me so long to get my hands on some! I can't wait to rock mine with shorts all summer long.
