A Recent Hilight

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope everyone had a wonderful V-day!  I am posting a day late but hopefully everyone is still in the loving spirit.  Anyway, I have been quite the slacker when it comes to posting on this blog and that is simply unacceptable.  I am going to try very hard to blog more regularly.  I have been so busy since starting a new job that I barely had time to post.  I was lucky enough to get out of work early yesterday for V-day and so I took advantage and enjoyed a lovely dinner with my boyfriend.  Before we left, he picked me up and gave me my gift.  My boyfriend usually always gives me jewelry for this occasion so I was surprised when he came into the house with balloons and a Steve Madden retail bag.  I love Steve Madden shoes although I must admit that I do not own many.  Nevertheless, I have been eyeing the Steve Madden Hilight Sneaker for awhile now.

They are the sneakers with the hidden wedge in them that resemble an updated hi-top sneaker.  I know originally these sneakers came out awhile ago from Isabel Marant for over $800 but over the past few months many other brands have come out with their own version of this design that are a bit more affordable.  So I was really surprised when I opened the Steve Madden box and see these shoes!  At first I wasn't sure if I would like them on me but once I put them on I was surprised at how comfy they were and how cute they look with a good pair of jeggings!  Plus not to forget, if you are short like me
(5'2 and under) these sneakers elongate your legs and make you look taller and slimmer!  They come in other colors but for me I love to buy things in classic colors like black so that I can wear them with a lot of different outfits.  They function like a bootie but have the look of a sneaker and if you grew up in the 90's you will also love the retro hi-top feel of this sneaker.  I plan on wearing these baby's all through Spring 2013!  

What shoes will you be strutting in this spring?
