Pretty in pleats

Isn’t this dress to die for? Nothing like feeling pretty in pleats. And tiers upon tiers. How fun is this dress? It’s a Lulu’s original but I found it at Nordstrom Rack.

Lulus tiered, pleated midi dress, Nordstrom Rack; Red wedge peep toes, old; Red floral necklace, Ann Taylor Loft; Rose gold clutch, Marshalls; Rose gold sunglasses, Ross.

 

While everyone else was shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, I was over at Nordstrom Rack checking out the already reduced prices on all of their clothing items. I’m definitely one for a good deal, and The Rack has way better deals than the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, IMHO.

This dress would be perfect for a summer wedding guest outfit. I felt like I was all dressed up with no fancy event to go to. Instead, we headed out to Hood River for a day trip.

It was a bit windy so I added a top later on, but still, a beautiful day for a drive.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. I have been on vacation this week and it has been amazing. Not long enough, though. I think I need to move to Europe where they get month long vacations to our week long ones in the States. Or win the lottery…

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!
