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?

15 Gifts for her under $100


I particularly love the cat purse from Asos, and the unicorn keyboard cover from Urban Outfitters.

Add a sparkly dress to make those winter days brighter. Sparkles, yes please! Pair this with shimmery eye shadow for all those winter parties.

Plus a warm puffer coat, a cute beanie and a super cute faux fur stole to keep her warm.

Bows on shoes and perfume bottles as well ~ I love bows on anything!

Graphic sweatshirts and fun llama print leggings to boot! You know those llamas are in now, right? Well, they are in and they are pretty adorable, so now you know!

Jewelry is always welcome. Kate Spade studs like shown in the widget below were super popular this year. There are all sorts of colors available. And who could resist a little blinged up Hershey’s Kiss necklace? I don’t even like Hershey’s chocolate very much, but still think this is pretty sweet. (I’m sure they don’t have a Dove dark chocolate necklace for me, and if they did, it wouldn’t be as cute as a chocolate kiss.)

As usual, you can shop my clickable widget below for more fun gifts for her. Hope this helps. If you wait until the last minute it may all be sold out. Don’t be that guy.
