Fall with Restricted Shoes

Well, hello again! Wow. These last few weeks have been a whirlwind. I know I've been MIA and so inconsistent on here for a few months now. It did start out because of personal reasons and from then, I had stopped for a number of other reasons too: new job, career change, travel, moving, school, etc. I am trying to figure out how to do it all at once without any help. I guess you can say I'm a bit overwhelmed and that affected my social presence. Even right now, I'm currently writing this in the office of my corporate job before I fly out to Colorado in a few hours. Talk about risky multitasking! I don't even remember when was the last time I had a free weekend to just relax and stay in my apartment. This rainy weather we've been experiencing in Texas for the past couple weeks would have been great for that.

It doesn't rain often in Austin but when it does, it leaves us stranded and there's basically nothing left to do with all the flooding. Luckily, there was one day of the week where the sun made its appearance. I got to show off my Red Myria Loafers from Restricted Shoes to brighten up this rather gloomy season in the city. If you haven't noticed yet on this blog, I've been a huge fan of this company for a while now, whether it be for high-heels or some everyday flats just like this one.

With this outfit, I paired my loafers with an over-the-shoulder top and a thrifted, paisley pants to make the shoes pop even more. I also have a discount code to share to all of you, for any regular-priced items on the website: 'MANETTEISM25'.

This life update may sound like I'm complaining on how occupied I am with my life right now, but I am so grateful for all of this. I'd rather be busy than be comfortable in one place. I'm so thankful for all the new opportunities that I've been receiving lately. After I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.

Thank you so much for reading. I am so ready to relax and wake up to the mountains of Colorado for the weekend! I'm not sure if I'll make it back to the blog before Thanksgiving, so I just want to wish y'all a happy holidays!



  1. Hope this place turns out good. It’s great that these Chicago event venues offers services such as catering, lighting, tables and chairs, table linen and parking. I am here to choose location for my event, glad to know that they do not put any restrictions regarding music played.
