Sneaks

Sharing My Sole - Sneaks

 

In case you haven’t noticed, I rarely wear flats on the blog. At 5’4”, my legs need a lift. And when it comes to shoe shopping, practicality has never been my strongest virtue. Even though I love me some killer heels, sometimes comfort just wins. Especially on the weekends. (Heck, sometimes I don’t wash my hair all weekend. Heels aren’t the first thing on my mind). So, when running around last weekend I went with some comfy sneaks and my toes were happy campers all day long.

Bloggers Who Budget: Favorite Transitional Piece

Sharing My Sole - Bloggers Who Budget

 

The Bloggers Who Budget gals are back for that weird time of year where it’s starting to cool down, but it’s not full blown Fall weather yet. So we are bringing you our favorite transitional pieces, for less. I’m sure it’s no surprise I went with a blazer. It has been and probably always will be my go-to piece for Fall. I snagged this jacket for 40% off and it’s been perfect for those slightly chilly days.  Don’t you love a good sale?

Friday Favorites

This week officially started to feel like fall. Yep, we quickly moved from 90 degrees and humidity to me turning the heat in the car to warm my toes while driving to the office. It came on suddenly and now I really need to step up my layer game. Anyone feel me?

A few favorites from around the web…

Madewell is offering 30% off select fall styles until midnight tonight.  Need this dress and these boots.

I’ve decided I need some pale pink in my closet for fall. This and this. Yes please.

Love this article on being a better listener. I think we all need this reminder sometimes.

I’m constantly on the hunt for the best hair products to add some volume. Going to try this next.

Polka dots two days in a row?  Things are getting crazy up in here.  Ok, not really since polka dots are my jam.  But how cute is this dress?  I couldn’t resist.  Part of me feels like I need to throw on some red lipstick and go live on the Mad Men set.  Now pour me a gimlet and call me Betty.

Denim & Dots

It’s no secret I love a good polka dot. Blouses, dresses, bags. I’ve had my eye out for a few new dots for fall and I scooped up this silk tank for that transition of seasons.  (p.s. These heels are ridiculously comfy.  They might look high, but they have a little built in cushion.  #winning).

Spicy (+ Giveaway!)

Sharing My Sole - Spicy

 

Want to know how to spice up a weekend?  Throw on a little black dress.  Do you ever have that?  The urge to get fancy with no real occasion?  I get that sometimes.  And then when it’s actually time to get dressed for work I just want to wear yoga pants.  Figures.  Luckily I have a fall wedding coming up where I can sport this little number again.  Fancy pants.  And my heels?  Just continuing on my mission to prove that leopard is a neutral.

Heartbreaker

Sharing My Sole - Heartbreaker

 

Labor Day weekend can sometimes feel like a heartbreaker.  (Summertime, summertime sadness).  Technically there are still 20 more days until Fall officially begins and the temps are lingering in the 80s, so I’m going to hold off on the boots and hold on to a margarita for a couple more weeks.
