The Perfect Spring Shoe

Real talk– the Free People Royale is one of spring’s “it” shoes and one of my personal favorites. The design is so perfect for warm weather, which we’re all hoping is headed our way soon. These beauties have been sold out basically everywhere, but I’ve found them for you! Seaside Soles has them available in this rich cognac color, and they also have them available in black. There are a lot of copycat versions out there, but I’ll be the first to tell you that they aren’t the same as the real thing. Personally, I would much rather splurge on a nice pair of shoes than pay for something that I know will fall apart after one season. Nothing peeves me more than unreliable, uncomfortable, give you blisters kind of shoes– They’re the worst! I will forever love this fabulous pair of shoes! The leather is so rich and the sole molds to your foot as if it were made just for you! Seaside Soles also has other great styles– Totally check them out. You can find …

The Learning Curve

In college, as an education major, my professors instilled in us the idea of being a life long learner. Be willing to adapt, willing to mold, and willing take on challenges. In education, this seems obvious, but I apply that concept, or I at least try to, in all aspects of life.  Because I am undergoing a new position at work (which I’m suuuper stoked about), I’ve been thinking a lot about the concept of becoming a life long learner. I’m learning SO many new things– Fascinating new concepts and ideas that up until this point I haven’t been familiar with, and I’m also able to apply knowledge that I’ve attained from other jobs that I’ve held or experiences that I’ve had. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. It not only pushes me to be creative and innovative, but it’s also extremely rewarding. Making progress in something, whether it be school, work, home life, is so gratifying to me and helps me find a purpose.  I know this post is short, but I just wanted to …

Newage Backpack

Story time. Over the past few months, I have been yearning for a Michael Kors backpack. I could just imagine myself strolling through town with an adorable vegan leather pouch strapped to my back. I kept seeing them over and over again (it’s like they were haunting me). But, unfortunately, I don’t have an extra $378 lying around. Woof. Maybe next year. But then, oh and this is the best part, something miraculous happened. I found Sorial (praising hands emoji)! This is the treasure. ‘X’ marks the spot. I have found the gold, people! And this is why: Amazing thing number one, I don’t need a baller status cash flow because my Sorial backpack cost less than HALF the price of my previously coveted Michael Kors and I like it even better. Amazing thing number two, you can use code KARLEE30 for an extra 30% off of your order from Sorial. Say whaaaa? Yeah, it’s fabulous. They offer everything from tiny fringe clutches, big, fabulous vegan leather totes, to my favorite, fancy, I am your BFF backpacks. So, really …
