Spring Yard Sale Tips

Our neighborhood has a yearly yard sale—that means lots of deals all over our neighborhood! I was a late joiner to the event, but the day was so beautiful that I decided it couldn’t hurt to put a few things out while I worked on the porch. Sharing a few pictures of my things in this post, and below you’ll also find some of my big tips on how to make it all go smoothly.

Dots Shopping Trip


have you ever shopped at a dots? i had never set foot in one, and i’d never really heard anyone talk about dots before a month or so ago. the folks at dots reached out to me and asked me to stop by a store in raleigh to shop with a $25 gift card. so, i took the opportunity to stop by and put together some outfits, check out the accessories section, and take a bunch of photos. (shout out to my boyfriend for the excellent help at the “shoot!”)

Wide Calf Boots for the Plus Size & Non-Plus Size Leg

sude high wide calf boot by comfortview woman within over the knee blue purple grey brown black

i’ve got muscular legs. and it seems like the boot options are getting sexier for me every year, which i’m very excited about. now, depending on how large your muscles (or your non-muscles, no judgement!) are … a lot of over the knee boots are not doing the trick for you. cause they ain’t doin the trick for me. that’s why i like to hunt down, every season, the wide calf boots that i’m just JONESING to have in my life. have you found any boots that are killing you un-softly recently? here’s what i’ve found while getting my wardrobe ready for fall.

12 Days of Christmas: Day 2


today is day 2 of the 12 days of christmas, and i couldn’t get very far into this without focusing on shoes. shocker, i know. seeing as i own countless pairs of them. i literally have 2 closets FULL of shoes at my house. i think this probably makes me a horrible person on some level, but then again, shoes almost always still fit.

up first, some affordable options from kmart.

the qupid women’s pamper sherpa short boot in black is not the most attractive looking shoe on kmart’s website, but i think that has something to do with how it’s been photographed. imagine this warm-looking boot on your foot with a pair of black jeggings tucked in and a chic tunic on top with a fantastic obi belt wrapped around your waist, some big chunky rings on your finger and a classic khaki trench on top to protect you from the snow. HELLO. and you can change up the laces to change up the look. these are $37.49. (and kmart has some great shipping offers as well as discount codes going on right now. just click through the photo to get to their site and take advantage.)

unnnnh yes. this is like the perfect foot punctuation for a party look. hell, i’d wear these around the house if i could get away with it. from the platform to the velvet, to the flower, to the mary jane look. this qupid women’s olwyn velvet flower mary jane in black from kmart is workin’ it for all it’s name is worth! it’s on sale for $29.99.

did you hear that asos is having a 40% off sale on shoes right now? that’s music to this girl’s ears because they have some of the HOTTEST options that i would put into the “affordable” price range. and you know they have free shipping to you and free returns, right? love that. these bad boys have pink, glitter, platforms, bows, and velvet. i can’t decide if these are too much are just right. so maybe i’ll just take advantage of that free shipping deal and order them and see … icon

icon now here’s a shoe that i’m totally, totally sure of. it’s green velvet. it’s an ankle boot. it just looks rich. end of. iconiconicon and i’m pretty into the iconhigh heeled loafer look that i’ve seen recently. these are from irregular choice, which is a brand that we’ve talked about before because i’m obsessed with how weird they are. anyway, there are on sale for $89.99, usually $179.99. come on ladies! almost $100 read more
