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!
They were so nice that I wore them twice…as a matter of fact, I think I have worn them more than twice since the last “You Choose The Shoes” episode. I just love the black and white print with the solid yellow heel and pairing them with this red dress which is also from Avon was a great match.
However, don’t let me muddy the waters because the other shoes which have a floral print are just as nice so you be the judge.
Once again I chose to highlight the yellow heels with a yellow purse, this one was purchased from Kohl’s last season. I then decided to change it up with a black clutch purse from The Rainbow Shop.
The dress has a cinched waist so it’s a bit more flattering and less clingy. The accessories for this outfit is a Goldtone coin necklace and an over sized multicolored bracelet to coordinate with the floral pink heels…that’s if I chose to wear them.
So what do you think, which pair would you have chosen to wear with this dress? I was thinking that maybe the chunky heels were too over powering but it seems as though chunky heels are back in fashion for the season and can be worn with any outfit.
Thank you to all who voted last month in the “You Choose the Shoes” episode #4. The overwhelming majority chose the Avon print so perhaps they will win again…let’s see how they fair this month.
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 and welcome to week 8 of “You Choose the Shoes”
Last week I actually did try to rearrange my closet, pulling out the winter wear in exchange for the Spring and Summer shoes, but I didn’t get too far. Hopefully, on Monday, Memorial Day I will get it all done.
Before we begin, I would like to ask for your prayers as we say goodbye and prepare to bury yet another cousin on Saturday who lost her battle with breast cancer #ihatecancer
Our cousin Renee’ was a beautiful, kind, loving and spiritual woman and I know she is looking over us all. I am going to dedicate a separate post to her once all is said in done, because I want to honor her husband and children as well.
This week’s contenders are Patent Leather wedges – versus- Patent Leather pumps
I remember wearing, and as a matter of fact I still have a pair of my patent leather Easter shoes from childhood. They were the squeakiest shoes ever made but when you shined them with Vaseline…watch out world…you were as sharp as a tack!
This is one of my favorite dresses, I purchased it for Tayair’s High School graduation in 2010. The purse is a recent purchase from Walmart #WearWalmart Speaking of Walmart, did you see my spread on their website…I’m in my “big girl panties” – click the picture in the sidebar to be taken to the advertisement and video. I am still in amazement of it all!
Okay, back to the shoes, the patent leather wedges were thrifted from Goodwill and the pumps are Mossimo via Target. As you can see, hubby was at it again…
The bracelet was purchased from a Clair’s in the mall and the necklace was a gift from hubby.
So which pair works better with this outfit?

Hello friends and welcome to You Choose the Shoes Season 2 ~ Week 6
Thank you all for your kind words and suggestions regarding my leg, unfortunately there is still a scar which I doubt will ever heal. Thank God is didn’t blister, but the next time, if there is a next time, I’m just going to let the pan fall onto the floor!
This week will be open toe versus closed toe. The weather is finally where it should be so this weekend, I will be pulling out the Spring and Summer shoes so we can get this contest rocking and rolling.
The cloth open-toe pumps are Rocket Dogg from The Shoe Dept and these patent leather pumps are Mossimo from Target.
Believe it or not I almost forgot about this weekly feature…not because I wanted to but because I launched a new blog, Blogging with Blake and have been trying to get it up and running along with a vlogging series. Do ya think I have enough time in a day?
If you follow me on instagram you know we took a road trip to Virginia Beach and welcomed a new cousin into the world, I can’t wait to tell you all about our trip and the rental car from Enterprise!
