Bonus Day 31 for Karen...

My friend Karen, was demanding a recount since I only did 30 days of shoes instead of 31 for this month! Since I enjoyed her daily comments I have to post one more pair for today.

Day 31
I stumbled across these at Marshalls awhile ago. Funny thing is that my  super fun friend Kelly in Arizona wore these back in March when we were there for spring break. I loved them then and I love them now! These were so meant to be... right?

They are Jessica Simpson and the style is JP-KAPRIX if you want to try to hunt them down.

Looking forward to enjoying our three day weekend although I wish I could be back in Illinois celebrating my dad's 60th birthday with him and the family.

Today is the day-Day 30...

Finally, the shoe finale! I had such a fun time doing this and it really made me show some love to pairs of shoes that so badly deserved it. Not one pair of shoes were bought this month and I think if everyone dug a little deeper in their closets they would find they have much more to wear than they think.

  These are more practical for running to and from today

Day 30
Roxy flip flops
but these would be a lot more fun to be wearing today!
Day 30
Sam Edelman you outdid yourself once again. Rachel Zoe might not think so but I do!
 They made their debut in Scottsdale this past May and I'm not sure if they will be worn again. Pretty sure they're going in a case to be put on display! Ha!

Thanks for following along and be sure to check out the Labor Day sales this weekend...I'm pretty sure you'll be able to get a great pair of shoes for less than you imagined!

I have to break out the Betsey Johnson's for today. They are so fun and silly just like her...I hope to have as much fun and style as she does when I'm her age! 

Day 29

I do have to show you these beauties that I will not be wearing today
but hopefully soon!

Sunday Day 26
A little boring I know but Jack had two baseball games in 90 degree weather so had to wear flip flops!

Perfect for walking the kiddos to school for the first day today...can't believe I have a 3rd & 5th grader.

Hope everyone has a great start to their week!

Looking forward to our last weekend before school starts!
Enjoy your weekend...

Day 23

These caught my eye at Nordstrom about 3 years ago. I absolutely love them but can you believe I have never worn them? It's true...No I will not be wearing these around the house today or walking in them to meet the teacher night at school. I will promise you that I will be  daydreaming about wearing them somewhere fabulous...someday!

They look brand new don't they?
Another day of running around with the kiddos so these will be perfect.

Sweet Sixteen...

Eric Clayton hope you are having a fantastic birthday!
I don't know if you know this but you share a birthday with
Babe Ruth! Yes...the great bambino. I only know this because my kids-especially Jack-are obsessed with him and we celebrate his birthday every year.
Crazy right?
We celebrate with eating Wheaties (supposedly it was his favorite cereal) for breakfast and have a hotdog and root beer for dinner.
So cheers to Babe and Eric today!

No, I didn't forget...
Day 16
Another favorite of mine...Mom remember these?
Very well worn but not worn enough!

Try it Tuesday & Shoe Day 14...

It's Try it Tuesday from Pinterest and here's what I tried over the weekend.

I came across a homemade hard water removal cleaner recipe that I needed...
Here is the recipe that I found:

Fill half of your spray bottle with vinegar
1/4 cup lemon juice
Fill the majority of space in your bottle with liquid soap
(I used Dawn)
Spray away 
Here are my results:
Obviously I'm highly recommending this DIY/inexpensive cleaner and I will never buy a store bought solution again!

I found it. pinned it. loved it. 

Day 14
Havaianas Day = Happy Day!

walk/run with Ms. Junie B.

Monday-Day 13
One of my favorites and I've only worn them ONCE since we moved here...

Happy Monday!

Love Nests...

I made these "love nests" for my loves this morning for breakfast. I cooked them a little too long for their liking but next time I'll make them so they can dip their heart toast in them. They're super easy to make...
Here's how:

Cut a hole in the center of a slice of bread with a small heart-shaped cookie cutter. Spread both sides lightly with butter and place in a pan on the stove top that has been heated on medium. Crack an egg into the heart-shaped hole.

Cook until almost set, 4-5 minutes. Flip and continue cooking for another minute or so. Adjust the cooking time if you want them a little runnier so you can dip your toast!

Too early to make a shoe selection so check back on Monday!

Distracted by Paper Source...

I was so excited about taking Ryan to her stationary making class yesterday at Paper Source that I forgot to post my eighth day shoe selection! Scroll to the end to see one of her cards she made...

Day 8 

Found these in downtown Chicago a couple years back right after we ran into The Jonas Brothers in our hotel lobby...These are lifers!

Day 9

Ryan's notecard from yesterday's class

Check out your nearest Paper Source store if you haven't already. But I'm warning you that it is somewhat addictive...

Pocahontas would like these...

It's been exactly a week since I started my 30 days of shoes. 
I had to dust these off when I put them on this morning to take the kids to the library...I think I might have worn these once last year!

I feel like Pocahontas when I wear them...
Happy Taco Tuesday!

Day 6...

Still having fun with wearing a different pair of shoes each day! Although I really have to stop and think about which shoes I pick since I won't be able to wear them again until the month is over!
Hope I didn't jump the gun with Saturdays (Day 4) selection since they are one of my favorites. If you only buy one pair of summer sandals make it these.
Sam Edelman GiGi
They don't break the bank, they come in a wide variety of colors and they are super comfy. Plus I'm sure they'll be going on sale soon if they haven't already!

Sunday Day 5

TOMS not BOBS! They were perfect for the rainy day we had here!

Monday Day 6
Nike Free Run 2
Perfect for "running" my errands today!

Here's to a great week!

30 Days of Shoes...

I'm shoe obsessed. 
I will admit that I do have a lot of shoes...some shoes I wear occasionally, some I wear all the time and some pairs are still in their box waiting for the perfection occasion.
I thought it would be a fun challenge for me to wear a different pair for 30 days. Some of you may find it completely irrelevant and some of you might find it fun to see my daily shoe pick of the day.
Follow along if you're shoe obsessed or just curious!

Here we go: Day 1

Black daily go to Havaianas with dragonfly
