Dark florals

Hello lovelies! Today I’m back with a gorgeous red and black floral A-line swingy top straight from Ross. Yep. I love that place. New clothing for less, what’s not to love? …The lines, actually. They don’t hire enough cashiers, so the lines are always long as everyone else wants to go there to save money as well. Le sigh. There always has to be that one thing you don’t like about your favorite place to shop…

Swingy A-line top, Ross; black skinny jeans courtesy of Mott & Bow, Betsey Johnson bow bag, also Ross; blingy flip flops, Marshall’s; earrings, made for me by a relative, similar kit here. (They have tiny photos of my mom as baby wearing a hula skirt. Squeee.)

I don’t know if you can see the detail in the earrings, but that is a photo of my mom in a hula skirt on the earrings.

It’s been nice to start venturing out into the world without a mask again now that Oregon has lifted the mask mandate except for health care settings. Which is where I work. I realize there are new variants of the coronavirus out there to watch out for and one can never be too careful. Still, it is nice to see people’s faces again, instead of just their eyes.

I hope you all stay cool out there. Oregon recently hit new high temps of 115 degrees. Yikes. Leave those temps for the states down south of us, please.

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!
