Fall shoe shopping for the family is a big task for any mom. With the giant school lists we need to check off, sometimes it’s nice to have a one-stop shop for the necessities. Like most women, I’ve shopped at DSW since they first emerged on the scene. Pretty much a godsend for any fashionista on the hunt for designer shoes at reasonable prices.
Throughout the years, my priorities have shifted—as has our budget. But great style does not have to be sacrificed! Shopping at DSW for my entire family is one item on the list that I thoroughly enjoy. Let’s face it: There’s usually some leftover budget for mom, too, which is always a win-win.
Speaking of: Have you guys checked out their fall lineup? Olivia’s feet grow just about every two weeks, so we stocked up on this season’s favorites just in time for cooler temps! Here are a few:
One could say I’m a smidge addicted to a stylish bootie. Guilty as charged! As for Liv, I think I’ve got her covered for running, jumping, marching, and every single type of play date. Thank goodness she loves shoes just as much as I do!
These BCBG booties are my go-to for just about every denim ensemble, and they look ultra chic when paired with a floral maxi. I wore them to the patch this weekend and stood for hours—no pain, sister friends!
So what are you waiting for? Head on over to your local DSW and get your fall on! I promise you won’t leave empty-handed! Happy shopping!
Disclosure: At DSW, we believe that shoes have the power to bring out something great in everyone. So no matter who you are or how you dress, we’ve got just what you need.
Shoes say a lot about you. Spend a little. Say a lot.
The sales are abundant this weekend - be on high alert. Today, for a change of pace, I am rounding up my favorite Bauble Bar items...you know the ones that are in heavy weekly rotation. Good news, too - the majority of them are on mega sale this weekend so I've linked them below. 75% off! You cannot beat that with a stick!
Happy first day of Summer, friends! How sweet it is. I'm ready to embrace all the sunshine and make this a killer summer with my little family. Are you? Let's kick if off with some sizzling Summer fashion! I am all about sandals and breezy dresses as of late. Pants are for the birds so free those gams and scoop up this gorgeous pinstripe dress. Hurry while supplies last!
I've partnered with Woodfield Mall again but this time the focus has slightly shifted...we're talking all things DAD! Yes...even dear old dad deserves a day to himself. <don't we all?> The girls and I headed out last weekend to get our shop on and shopping we did, indeed, accomplish. Might I add that we took several 100 breaks for various reasons ranging from the bathroom to snacks to toy stores and beyond BUT we completed our mission.
Note to self: Train daughters to build some shopping stamina!
Let's shop eh? It's been awhile, right? I've been struggling to hit a rhythm with my blog posting schedule...perhaps even hobbling but I will deliver! I promise. I am so excited to enter a new season and in dire need of tops. Why is it we are always low on tops? Is it just me? No worries, I've found some great ones.
P/S Are you as obsessed with bow mules, loafers and sneakers, too? It's literally taking everything in me not to purchase a pair but that's what birthdays are for!
Okay, real talk. I never get to a spa. And that is not a complaint. I'm of the mindset that if I cannot relax at all - why spend the money? Heck, I can barely get through a no-chip manicure without tapping my toes and telling my manicurist to skip the hand massage complete with warm towel aromatherapy. Yeah, I'm that girl.
Spring is the yin and yang of fashion. It you live in Chicago, you might actually turn both the AC and the heat on within the same day. It's what inspired today's post -- 20 pieces to take you through transition weather. Blouses, denim, dresses and strappy heels. Some of my favorite items and ones that you should stock up on because they never go out of style. I find myself layering a lot during the season because you can always shed the layers = smart dressing!
If there's one thing you can count on me for...it's bringing you on-trend footwear for every season. I am shoe obsessed. Always have been...always will be. Which makes today's post most delightful as I am ready to embrace the cutest, embellished flats in the form of SANDALS!
Doesn't it seem like everyone is in Mexico? I swear. Envious...a bit but hey, Spring is right around the corner and I'm feeling it big time. Maxis, tanks, sandals and more...today's round up is Spring Break inspired and if you're jumping on a plane to jet set to the nearest pearly, white beach - get on this shopping list muy pronto.
If there is one thing I love, it's little girls in Easter dresses. There's nothing sweeter. But, sometimes momma needs a new dress, too! #amiright? Not to worry, I selected five sweet but tasteful dresses that fit the bill no matter if you're hosting or brunchin' out.
Fun fact: I fell in love with SPIN classes starting in January. It's a welcome change up to my at-home workouts. Another fun fact: my calves have grown and all my jeans are tight in the calf. Who does this happen to? Me…of course.
