A Steal in Silver – Loafers

We’ve all had shoe lust! Don’t deny it, you know you have, and sometimes we’re fortunate enough to be able to satisfy that lust while other times… sigh.  Budgetary restraints take charge.  But now and then there are those moments when we hit the jackpot and find that ‘similar’ shoe at a bargain price that makes you do your happy dance like nobody is watching.  In my case, I struck silver at DSW with this look alike of a Rebecca Minkoff loafer.

Yeah yeah sure sure they aren’t exactly alike but close enough and unlike the original price of $195-$225 (depending on what store you’re at) I got these Steve Madden loafers at DSW from the clearance section at 50% off their list price plus I had a $10 off coupon for belonging to their rewards program which gave me the final price of – wait for it – $32.22!  BOOM!  It pays to prowl those clearance racks for great finds.  By the way – if you are into Converse sneakers they have some great summer ones in the clearance section now.  You can thank me later.

Until next time ♥

Casual Saturday – Skinny jeans, Converse and his shirt

Sometimes you have things to do, you want to be comfortable and heels and a dress just will not work for the errands on your to-do list.  That day was today!  Cleaning up around the house, a bit of gardening, getting groceries… it has to be done sometimes.  So what to wear when you want to be comfy but not look like you just threw on the first things your hands touched in the morning? Grab his shirt, pull on your jeans and Chucks, put your hair up some kind of way and go!  And in the case of a couple of these photos, be a bit silly along the way.  You’re never too old for having some fun.  In the words of the Joker – Why so serious!

I confess,  I did wear some lip gloss.  I just feel so undressed without my earrings and some lip stick no matter what I’m wearing.  Dressing up will have to wait for Mother’s Day 🙂

Until next time ♥

Chilling in my Chucks

I wanted to shoot a different look outside but nature had other plans – other snowy and cold plans the day I did this outfit!  So it was just relax indoors in my flannel and Chucks instead.  What I love most about this flannel shirt from the Gap, besides it being soft and comfy, is the long shirt tail in the back.  I’ve worn this shirt with leggings and boots as well as with denim.  The pants, from J Crew, are stretchy and comfy and can be dressed up or down.  And as I’ve said before, when it’s a look you like and it works for you, get it in multiple colors if offered.  I bought these in 5 colors (mostly on sale).

Now what can I say about the Chucks?  Great shoe and I’m up to four pairs now.

Until later ♥
