Being Carrie Bradshaw

Sarah Jessica Parker - along with her alter ego, Carrie Bradshaw - has become a leading fashion icon for working women everywhere. Before Sex and the City, brands like Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo didn't mean much to me; now, styles from these designers and many others fill my closet.

Sarah Jessica Parker's recent foray into design with the SJP shoe line (available through Nordstrom) has helped her transition from wearing new shoe fashions to creating them. Today, I'm wearing a pair of SJP pumps, and like SJP herself, they are fabulous.

Dress: Shoshanna Leighton Tweed A-Line Dress (no longer available)

It's hard to see in the photo, but the dress features tiny green and blue stitching. I wanted to bring out the blue hue by wearing these blue matching pumps.

Shoes: SJP Slim Peep-Toe Pump in Avio Blue (no longer available)

Celebrity Sighting!
Reese Witherspoon was seen wearing these SJP pumps with jeans this past spring. I love how these pumps go great with a dress or jeans. Although a little on the pricey side, the shoes are very well made, so treat yourself.

When Reese wore the pumps for the first time, her Instagram post read: "Oh @sarahjessicaparker I love you and now I love your shoes." Reese, I totally agree!
