  16. It’s so hard to choose! For me, the Lynne sandals in metallic silver are a standout. Perfect for day to night, these shoes are easy, breezy, and glamorous! LOVE!

  17. I have been obsessing over the Milly boot. They are fab! low heel, great details with the golden toe and buckle accents and the side openings. Perfect for fall and winters in Arizona <3

  25. My favorites are the booties you’re wearing!! Milly in taupe snake <3

  26. What a great give-away!! Love their site and would so love a pair of the Kate heels, they’re gorgeous!

    Have been following you for a little over a year now & absolutely love your blog. It’s REAL and there aren’t too many of those out there. Through you, I started following a couple other Utah bloggers & y’all are so great! Makes me want to move from San Fran to Salt Lake!


  27. All Signed up! I am now in love with everything on the sight. I would kill for the Carrie shoe in taupe!

  28. Taking a cue from the bright footwear and gorgeous color combos that you come up with, I would choose the Hellin (Suede) Wedges. They are such a cool graphic shoe with the potential to spruce up any outfit. Thanks Amber, Maya

  29. Hi Amber,
    I would pick the “Kate” it is a perfect example of a subtly glamorous, yet understated shoe and can truly pull an outfit together, whether it be summer with some amazing white cut offs and a loose black tee, in fall with a pair of leather leggings, with winter white or even with a neon pink. I think they are versatile and worth the pick.
    I love your style and actually think these would fit perfectly in your closet as a staple.
    I would love to win a pair!

    Thank you and happy Sunday!

  30. i looooooooooove the milly snake heels. they are amazing in every way!! i HAVE to have them…. sadly they are sold out in almost everysize 🙁 ps girl your amazing!!!!! wish i was you.. but hey pick me? thank you.

  49. So I am shopping the local sidewalk sales yesterday and I cross paths with this girl who had the best combination of little boots and a white dress. Instantly, I fell in love with her shoes. I was in such awe that I completely forget to ask her where she got them. Bummed that I never thought I’d ever see these cute boots again I went home to search online. Your blog is usually one of the first things I check out and I screamed with joy when I saw you were wearing the exact pair of boots she had on. I would LOVE to win the Milly shoes in your would make me so happy. Love your blog, huge fan. xo

  81. The Meredith flat is absolutely amazingly adorable! Thanks Amber!

  82. Is it totally wrong to love the ‘Meghan’ boot??? Not only do they share my name….the black and brown color combination is pure genius! Love it!

  83. Hi Amber,

    Gorgeous. I am loving the whole look from the free people sweater to your windswept, tousled hair! If I had to choose a pair of shoes, it would be…. the Milly style you have on in the shoot! X

  84. um…what a great find!!!!! HOW did I not know about this before? I’m such a shoe junkie, but I’m also saving money for my wedding and trying to keep on a budget, so this seems Heaven sent with those prices on such amazing shoes. In LOVE with those Millys, hands down my absolute favorite. I’m also digging the Kate in nude- I typically go straight for booties but I’ve been seeing you pair strappy mid-height heels with funky/casual outfits and I can’t get enough, so I think I need to make a departure from habit and try the same!

  85. I would totally pick the Milly boots you have on. I have been eyeing that style for a while!

  86. I would definitely choose the Milly’s just like you have on! They are so adorable!

  87. Amber I love those Milly’s you have on! The Kate’s are a close second!

  88. I LOVE the Kate heels. Sassy and I how could I not love them? It’s like it’s fate!

  89. Amber, I love your blog! I especially love all of your awesome hair tips and tricks! Thanks for your dedication to helping others look and feel beautiful.

    I pick Hellin in nude patent, size 8.

    Thanks again and have an awesome day!

  90. Love your blog!! I would pick the Lina sandals in either nude or black 🙂

  91. I signed up for ShoeMint and it’s such a fun site. They have such great styles, I love them all! The nude booties you have are to die for! I am also eyeing the Kate heels in nude and olive, Elizabeth lace up pumps in python, Jaysie heeled loafers (!) and I had to stop myself there because I could go on and on 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  92. I absolutely LOVE the boots you’re wearing in this post! so trendy, cute and versatile! I would love to add the MILLY boots to my wardrobe, as they are perfect for fall!! 🙂

  93. First of all, these pics are amazing—your friend is so talented! Maybe getting lost in the dessert was a blessing in disguise—you found a great location!

  101. Ahh, I LOVE the Shiva (in black) – just like the deity, a shoe can be the destroyer or transformer of all outfits – am I right!? Alas…sold out of this one in ALL sizes! So I would have to go with the Sienna in black! Nothing better than a tough bootie to kick around in.


  102. Loving the Elloise wedge….very versatile. Could be dressed up or down very easily.

  103. It’s so hard to choose, they’re all adorable! I’d have to go with the Ulla heel in tan and black. I love sandals with t-straps! They’re so feminine!
