The white strappy heels were purchased last season from Rainbow Shops and the flats are this season’s purchase from Payless. You guys know I have a lot of shoes, and I have finally begun to purge some of them. I can’t believe that I only work 1/4 of my winter shoes – ridiculous!
The statement necklace is Walmart and bracelet from Old Navy.
So will it be the strappy white sandals or the blue flats for this outfit?

Hello friends and welcome to You Choose the Shoes Season 2 – Episode 10
Last month before we left for vacation hubby and I shot two sets of You Choose the shoes episodes and so we will begin this week with the flats verses wedges.
I love this maxi skirt and striped tank which were both purchased from Walmart and I bet by now are on the clearance racks. So if you are looking to add to your summer wardrobe, may I suggest you head over there with a quickness.
Now take a look at the outfit and let me know which pair of shoes you would have chosen to wear with it.
The belt is a thrifted find from Goodwill and I think the necklace is also from Walmart. #WearWalmart
The flats are from Rainbow Shops and the wedges were purchased years ago from Kmart. Right now both of these stores are having great clearance sales so you can really dress for less! What do you think, I know it should be about comfort but believe it or not, the wedges are more comfortable than the flats, however, when it comes to driving, it’s better to wear flats.
Take one more look at both and let me know which pair you would have chosen for this outfit.
If you are looking to update your Spring wardrobe but not looking to spend a lot of money, instead of buying more clothes, just purchase a few accessories. Adding awesome accessories to any outfit will make it look stylish and refreshed.
There are plenty of department stores with accessories which are very often on sale. Invest in scarves, earrings and necklaces to add more class and attractiveness to your vision. Here are just a few accessories you can use to update your wardrobe if you are on a budget.

About a quarter of your wardrobe budget should be spent on accessories. The more accessories you have the less clothes you will need to buy. You can wear your favourite clothes and match them using different jewelry for a new look.
You will spend less time matching an accessory than trying to find clothes that match together. There are many accessories which are universal and can be combined with almost every outfit. If you have accessories in yellow, green, silver and gold, you can be sure that they can be matched with almost every clothing you wear. These colours are universal and will be the best choice no matter what clothes you choose to wear.
To stand out with your own unique personal style try wearing various types of accessories. Otherwise you can get lost in the crowd of similar dressed women who are all wearing the same branded and trendy clothes. Your shoes, earrings and jewellery makes you stand out and be unique.

If you think your look is too plain you can just wrap a scarf around your neck and completely change your vision. You can use the scarf as a belt if you prefer, depending on the style of the clothes you wear. Bags and shoes can make your outfit look stylish and really change your appearance. You don’t have to follow the trend. It’s enough to choose accessories which look good on you and can be combined with many different clothes.

Choose expensive-looking accessories to make your clothing look better if you are on a tight budget. There are many pieces of jewellery which look pricey but aren’t expensive. Choose things which don’t look too fake. You can cross a small bag around your body and wear some earrings which focus the attention. Instead of buying gemstones which are very expensive you can wear semiprecious stones. Don’t buy fake imitation of precious stones because they look cheap. There a plenty of accessories you can use to make your everyday appearance more interesting and stylish.
Hello friends, each week I will put together a collage of my favorite outfits of the week, then post them here on Sunday Stylin RoundUp.
This first outfit I wore to the SITSGirls Bloggy Boot Camp in Philly. The skirt was a recent purchase from Burlington Coat Factory, as was the tote from Walmart. This tote bag was only $14.97 and they have a large selection in various colors, I will probably pick up another one in Cognac. The sandals and top are closet staples. The necklace and arm band are too old for me to remember where they were purchased but the red bracelet is from Old Navy.
As you can see, I love the tote and wore it again to work the following Monday with a thrifted faux wrap dress from Goodwill and thrifted beige pumps. Necklace from Rugged Wearhouse, bracelet and ring both from Old Navy.
On Sunday, I wore another totally thrifted outfit, dress and purse, however the blue pumps and necklace are from Avon. Ring and bracelet are from Old Navy, as you can see I picked up several, but for $1.99 each wouldn’t you?
If you haven’t noticed by now, black and red is one of my favorite color combinations, and this outfit is definitely one of my summer favs. I wear this thrifted skirt all year long, so you will probably see this entire outfit again with a blazer.
These were my favorite outfits from the first week in September, which one do you like the best?
Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday. We are halfway through another wonderful week and so we have two new shoe contenders, but before we begin, let’s take a look at last week’s You Choose The Shoes winners.
Were they your choice?
Now the shoes that I picked for this week are similar in print but different in style and I wanted them to compete with the pattern in my dress, take a look:

This has been another blessed week, with our oldest being accepted into the CLSC Program at the University of Delaware and tonight our youngest is graduating from Appoqunimink High School!
I don’t let grass grow under my feet either because in addition to working full time outside of the home I also sell Avon and have been since 2002. Honestly, I don’t have a large customer base but enjoy selling products for a company that has been in business for over 125 years!
I use Anew products on my face and I love how Avon has changed their clothing selections to keep in line with the current trends. Unfortunately, it eats into my profits but that’s okay because I love their accessories, the shoes, sneakers, scarves and especially the totes and purses.
Check out this comfy casual outfit that I wore at the end of April, it’s was totally thrifted from Goodwill but accessorized by Avon.

I am getting so excited in anticipation for the heat of the summer as I’m sure a few of you are as well. Last week it was still a bit cool but the weekend more than made up for it with temps in the 80’s. I can’t wait until it’s officially pool time in just a few short weeks!
Today’s outfit is a combination of JCPenney, Citi Trends, Avon and Target.
The Peplum top is JC Penney, and I was never a big fan of them because I didn’t think they were flattering to my figure – what do you think?
This perfectly color coordinated purse is from Avon (Mark) #loveit Bracelet from Rugged Wearhouse and Necklace and Earring Set from Jewelrymax.net.
I not a big retail shopper and I try to stay away from the malls but I won’t rule out low-end shops like Rainbow, Deb and Citi Trends, which is where I purchased this pencil skirt. #dressforless
The black patent leather Mossimo pumps are from Tar’jay (Target). This is the outfit that I wore to work and later on that evening for teaching a Blogging 101 class at the Bear Library. It was very comfortable all day and worked well for both environments.
I love teaching these Blogging 101 classes because the attendees are awesome!
I’ll be stopping by to see Whitney Nic James for her Personal Style Linkup, come over if you get a chance. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I’ll see ya tomorrow.
