The summer is flying by too quickly, and I have been trying to wear as many pairs of my sandals as possible before it’s time to cover up my tootsies.
With this outfit, which is a dress from Ross Dress for Less and purse from Avon I have chosen a pair of yellow flats also from Avon and a mustard color wedge again from Ross Dress for Less.
I find wedge sandals to be very comfortable but flat sandals are always better for driving. The yellow bracelet is from Old Navy and to it I added a few miscellaneous bangles.
The necklace was purchased from an online jewelry store. I am not sure where I purchased the ring but most likely it was from Burlington Coat Factory.
So have you taken a vacation yet? Hubby and I have decided to wait until the fall and then take a mini vacation to a Caribbean Island for a little rest and relaxation before the new year.
Malik, our youngest son will be returning to Bowie State University in a few weeks. He has been working two jobs this summer so that he can return back to campus with extra funds to handle his “extradentials” – which is definitely a load off of our plates.
Okay, so which pairs of sandals would you have chosen to wear with this dress?
I hope you have a Happy Hump Day and will enjoy the rest of the week!
Hello friends and welcome to another episode of You Choose the Shoes. It has been exactly one month since the last feature but as I previously stated, things have gotten a lot more busier with ABlake Enterprises so #YCTS will become a once per month post.
With this outfit I am featuring an “oldie but goodie” pair of slip-ons by Jessica Simpson and a new pair from Avon which I think you may like.
It was a sunny Sunday early in April so my son and I decided to drive the Kia Sorento that I was reviewing from DriveShop through town. He actually didn’t want to hang out with his mother, but obliged me if only for an hour. Hubby took these pictures before we left and then he and I headed out for part of the day.
The yellow tote is also from Avon and the Statement Necklace was purchased from Walmart.
Speaking of Avon, I received an email from them wishing me a Happy 6th Anniversary, however, it has definitely been longer than 6 years because I remember that I started selling in the early 2000’s, but according to their records it has only been 6 years.
Anywho, since I don’t have many customers and don’t make a profit I guess it doesn’t matter how many years I have been with Avon. I do however, like buying Avon’s clothing, shoes and accessories so I will stick around for at least another 6 years.
What do you think of my latest purchase?
I should do more pattern mixing but am not very comfortable in doing so, however, I think this worked, what do you think?
Okay, which pair of shoes do you like with this maxi skirt?
The most popular pair from last month were the strappy sandals.
Hello friends, guess what…it’s time for a new season of
“You Choose The Shoes”
Now most of you know that I am in the process of de-cluttering in order to downsize the house so we can move to a 55+ community. However, my closets are the hardest to keep organized because they are overflowing with shoes, purses and clothes, but I am biting the bullet and have been donating with a vengeance.
As a matter of the fact at the time of this reading, these beige pumps will have been donated to my local Goodwill.
The funny thing is, these pumps were thrifted a few years ago from the Salvation Army Family Store and were a closet staple, but the back of the beige ones got a little messed up so it was time to get rid of them. At first I was going to put them in one of those metal bins on the side of the road but wasn’t sure where the shoes are sent.
Do you know who collects them and where they are sent?
Well anywho, back to these shoes, I think they both look great with the dress also thrifted and purse but I need you to tell me which color you would have worn with this outfit.
Leave a comment below with your choice for which pair I should have worn with this dress to work and the results will be tallied and posted in the next “YCTS” post.
Oh and if you know anything about those metal bins on the side of the road I would appreciate the information.
I can’t believe this topic is still under discussion, but it’s that time of year so here we go again…
Should a woman wear sleeveless clothing after the age of 50?
Heck yeah it’s Hot!
I am over the age of 50, as a matter of fact I will be 54 in September, am still menopausal and sweat like a pig most mornings just getting dressed…actually pigs don’t have sweat glands, but that’s besides the point.
I have and will continue to be sleeveless in the summer no matter my age because I want to and it’s comfortable. Hey, if you have flabby arms so what, I think Wendy Williams called them “bingo wings”, be proud of them or do something about them…lift weights using canned peaches or hit the bag like First Lady Michelle Obama.
No matter your age or size, be comfortable with who you are because in the end, it’s not about what you looked like on the outside, it’s how you felt on the inside…stay cool and do you boo boo!
