For the love of shoes!

I feel like I should dub this ‘The Year of the Shoe’. I have bought so many cute sandals this year, and a super cute pair of Sketchers athletic shoes. In my defense, a lot of my old ones are just falling apart. Plain and simple.

I had a couple pairs that were falling apart but were in really good shape otherwise, so I went out and bought some Shoe Goo. Yes. There is such a thing. You repair your shoes with it. I know. In today’s day and age, whoever thought of repairing something old rather than just chucking it out and getting something completely brand new? I did both. Repaired the old and bought the new. Super proud of myself for attempting to fix the old ones. Not sure how long the repair job will last, but what’s a little more time with a beloved shoe?

I won’t show pictures of all the old ones. (In fact, I didn’t take any of my ‘fix-it-upper’ shoes.)  The new ones were definitely worth showcasing.

Laser cut zip-up wedge sandals from Ross.

Supa fancy blinged up flip flop style sandals from Marshall’s.

Woven wedge sandals from Rue 21.

Comfy and cute embroidered floral memory foam Sketchers. Can be a great transitioning seasons shoe as well. Found on clearance at Ross.

Gold bling thongs sandals. Ross for the win again!

And technically, these are from the end of last summer. Crocheted wedge sandals found at Goodwill during one of those rare instances you walk by something you like, pick it up and it actually fits. I find this much harder to do at Goodwill and much easier to do at Marshall’s, Ross, or TJ Maxx.

Anyone else out there a shoe-aholic? Any great shoes you’ve found for a good deal lately?

Thank you for stopping by!

Stripes and flowers

Happy July everyone! I know, it’s halfway through the month, but I haven’t done a blog post yet this month, so I thought I’d say it anyway.

I went out shopping on 4th of July weekend and found some good deals at Ross and Marshall’s that I thought I’d share with y’all.

This Anne Klein skirt was only $13.99 on clearance at Ross. Whoohoo. I saw another striped skirt before I left that was only $10.99 regular price. I almost bought that instead, but you just can’t beat the quality of this Anne Klein skirt over the more cheaply made t-shirt material thin cotton skirt I thought of getting instead. That one was cute, but I decided to go with the better quality of this one.

And this shirt, though! I was admiring it when it was full price at the Marshall’s close to me, then just happened to spot it at another one a month or so down the road on clearance for only $10. Yes, please! Check out those cute floral details on the sleeves of this Kim & Cami tie front top.

The big asymmetrical stripes make a bold statement, while the florals add a softer feminine touch.

Also, the gold sandals are from Ross. Less than $15. Good deals are my jam!

We went to one of the historical houses in Portland to do this shoot, and it was packed because they were having a car show. We walked around a bit, took a few photos out back, then switched to a quieter historical house located in Troutdale. Much easier to do photos without the crowds.

I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead. Happy shopping!
