So with all the chaos going on at work, I felt the need to redo my bedroom. My room recently has become too cluttered and in need of a great redecoration/cleansing. I love shopping online and creating dream boards of items on my wish list. As you can tell...I definitely love bright bold colors and tons of patterns. I guess technically my room will always feel like chaos, at least its a colorful chaos :).
I know last weekend I was excited for the 3 day weekend with Memorial Day. But believe it or not I'm more excited today for the weekend to start. We've been playing catch up all week since we had a lovely Monday off. I spent the weekend in the lovely Zion National Park and soaked up the sights in my fave Sage sandals. This week was full of adorable pugs named Gracie, What Will They Say poodle smoking slippers, beautiful plum Finders Keepers and of course a cat ring.
How was your long weekend!

Yeah, yeah, we all know cats rule the internet. But we think it's time we give a little attention to the underdogs! (pun intended) For every Lil' Bub, Grumpy Cat and Maru there's a canine equivalent in Maddie, TrotterPup and Momo. In honor of (wo)man's best friend, we've created a collection of our favorite dog-inspired items, including Seychelles What Will They Say poodle loafers. What do you think, are you a cat or a dog person? Who are your favorite furry internet celebrities?
1. Dog Park dress at Modcloth
2. Seychelles "What Will They Say" poodle loafers
3. The French Dog coffee table book at Anthropologie
4. French Terrier necklace from VERAMEAT
5. Daschund Letter Holder from Anthropologie
6. Hand-Dyed Rope Collar from Free People (because your pup deserves the best, too!)
7. Buxom Stay-There Eyeshadow (each color is named after a different dog breed. So cute!)

It's Friday and we're ready for our fun 3 day weekend! We've definitely packed our sandals so we can be beach ready :).
What plans do you have for this weekend?
Each year Memorial Weekend is the bookend holiday that marks the beginning of summer. Weekends are soon filled with BBQs, long days at the beach, lemonade out of mason jars with cute straws and ice cream...lots of ice cream.
One of our favorites ice cream places has to be Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams. The flavors her and her wonderful team come up with are to die for. To name a few of her amazing creations: Black Coffee, Brambleberry Crisp, Pistachio and Honey Mint and Cherry Lambic. Since her shop is in Ohio, we have to find alternatives. (Jeni's is sold at certain locations, *thankfully* you can find one near you here)
If you feel adventurous, Jenis also has a book for at home recipes! A fun way that we've discovered how to make ice cream is with this ice cream ball. It's perfect for kicking around while chatting around the BBQ, all while it churns your delicious treat.
To top it all off we found the perfect All American star serving stand and in my opinion my fave no fuss ice cream scoop. Don't forget to show your patriotic stripes in our Lost Control wedges.
Aside from the great time to spend with family and friends Memorial Day is a day to remember and give thanks to all the men and women who gave their lives in the service of this country.
Happy Memorial Day :)

With Memorial Weekend just around the corner, I've been stuck day dreaming of a the perfect getaway.
If you were wondering, our company name comes from the ethereal Seychelles islands located in the Indian Ocean. Recently the Royals Prince William and Kate Middleton made this unknown island a star with their visit. It's easy to get lost in the beauty of the islands and its welcoming turquoise waters.
Doesn't this seem like a perfect mandatory company getaway? Seychelles ladies going to the Seychelles Islands? One can dream :)
In the meantime I've collected some Seychelles Island inspired items.
1 With The Fishes Ring 2 A perfect accessory for beach hair 3 Seahorses Ring 4 Turquoise Shades 5 Mint Color Block Tote 6 We love a classic one piece 7 Stripes One Piece 8 Fuji Instax Mini for your adventures 9 Ramblin Ways Sandal 10 Cat Eye Shades

Happy Friday everyone :) we've had such a fun week on Instagram and we're really excited for this weekend! Here's a little recap of our week in photos.
On Monday we chose our 3 winners for our Seychelles Weekenders contest. We love all the photos submitted it was so hard to pick just 3. As you can see from our pictures, the A Beautiful Mess app made its wonderful debut on the itunes store and we snatched it up right away! All the hand drawn flourishes make our photos feel so personalized, Elsie and Emma from A Beautiful Mess did should be proud of their amazing app baby.
In case you haven't caught our news, we are now also on Trendabl. Trendabl is a new fashion sharing app that allows you to tag brands in your photos. It makes finding specific items much easier. For example you can choose the shoe category and even a color and it will pop up with all photos that match your search. We just love it! Make sure to follow us at seychellesshoes.
Lastly it looks like the sun is back out again for the weekend, just in time for our "Ramblin Ways" sandal (bottom right photo) to make an appearance.
Happy weekend everyone :)
Lately we've been noticing we have some cute desks here at Seychelles. It totally inspired us to find more cute and useful items for the home and office. Having a bright and cheery workspace always makes the day go easier.

This Friday Finds is inspired by my very own mom, and Mother's Day this Sunday. Like they always say "Like mother like daughter", I've found that I love brights and desserts just as much as my mother does :). Happy Mother's Day to all the moms this Sunday!
All in the name of great fitting shoes! Our Queen Bee and Director of Product had a 'whatever it takes' moment while on the road to the airport in Dehli, India.
Remembering we needed to size one of our FALL 2013 boots before departing for Hong Kong, they pulled over to the side of the road in 102 degrees and finished the process there. We'll do anything in the name of shoes.
Happy Friday everyone :)! We're excited to start the weekend in our Seychelles Weekenders! Don't forget to snap a photo of your weekend adventures and tag #seychellesweekenders for a chance to win a pair of shoes. This is the last weekend so have an adventure and let us know all about it. If you're not already following us on Instagram, here is a snapshot of our fun week.

Shoes and handbags go together like cake and ice cream, salt and pepper, rainy days and hot coffee...ok, you get the picture.

Scroll down for the details. And don't forget to stop by Melie Bianco to gush over their lovely bags.

3 Carry the rain with you in this adorable teardrop shaped ring

Just when we thought we couldn't love fabulous online boutique Libby Story more, they go and win us over with cute puppies in their newest lookbook! For their summer photoshoot, Libby Story partnered with CARA, their Community Animal Rescue and Adoption Center, to make a difference and showcase some sweet pups and help them find their forever homes. Clearly, these ladies have style, brains and a heart. We're proud to have our Risky Business wedge featured. View the whole lookbook on their website right here and while you're at it grab a pair of Risky Business wedges!
Happy Friday everyone! Quick hello, this is Robyn blogging and I'm quite new to Seychelles :). Little bit about me, I love all things whimsical, food and adventures! I'm hoping to post weekly Friday Finds and share with you all the little knick knacks on my infinite wish list of things I want (you know you have one too!)

If you're anything like us, you have a major crush on anything gilded. How awesome is this gold resin cow skull? We think it's the perfect complement to the Anise woven moccasins in rose gold. A little rustic, a little glam. Just our style.
