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

Armchair Shoppin!

i really want to go shopping today, but i really don’t need to. so, i’ll be armchair shopping from here, and hopefully you’ll see some pieces you like and tally forth and shop for me? whaddaya say? i know i’ll be hitting the beach as soon as the weather will allow, and here’s what i’ll be wearing for the ride down – from my coverup (which means i’ll be ready to party in the area as soon as leaving the beach) to my shoes (which will totally show off my fresh outta winter pedicure stylee!), i am SO excited to pull out my spring time pieces.

Black Challis Faux Snake Belted Jumperso, things are actually starting to warm up around here! and that means it’s time to break out the rompers! this one, from torrid, has pockets. pockets are always a win, especially if you’re going to the beach or are going to be away from the house all day. it’s got a smocked waist and and elastic back and cuffs – so it’s safe to order without trying on. and that snake belt? it’s included. 5% off for shopping from THIS LINK.

Toya Olive Perforated Lace-Up Wedge Bootie (Wide Width)now, let’s talk about what you’ll be wearing with this jumper. these bad boys, also from torrid, are clear knockoffs of last season’s jeffrey campbell mary rocks. BUT, they’re on sale for $39.99, and i’ll definitely still be rocking this same style this spring. they are mad comfy and they look great with everything from jeans to crop pants to dresses to rompers and skirts and tshirts. batter up – get the toya perf lace up wedge bootie. even comes in wide width. hiyah!

Black and Nickel Faux Leather Wide Beltnow here’s a belt i’ve had my eye on for awhile. i totally believe that belts are important to any curvy girl’s wardrobe. seriously – they can bring a whole outfit together and make it look like you really put some thought into it. even if you’ve just thrown a sweater on over top of a tshirt and some leggings and thrown on some wedge heels. SRYLY! anyway back to this belt. i’ve not seen a belt like this made for plus-size yet, so i’m hoping to swing by a torrid sometime soon to try one out. this bring the waist cinching look to an outfit without having to get all buckled into an actual waist cincher or corset. again – 5% off at this link! booyow. i would totally wear this with the jumper to bring the look together for read more
