Shoe Shopping...and a pair of pants on sale

For the past few weeks I've woken up to go to work, headed straight for my closet and dreaded one simple thing...

What shoes will I wear?!!

I don't know if you're like me, but I have worn each pair to death! I'm talking there is no plastic protector on my heels, they are all worn down to the metal spike, the soles are completely gone, and for some reason it looks like I've taken them through the ringer.

Literally...to death.

So I shared with Blake my frustrations, and because we had a little extra money in our budget this month he told me I could go get a couple pairs. When I got our power bill for this month it said -$16.76...meaning you don't have to pay this month and next month will take $16.76 off???? They do this once a year if you make all of your payments on time, and it is BRILLIANT! Because...I GET NEW SHOES!!!!


So...because I got a little OVERLY excited, I'm having a hard time picking one of the pairs out, and I need your input of which ones you like better! Sadly, two of the pairs won't let me save their picture so you'll have to click on the link, but let me know what you think!

First of all, these are a definite keeper only because I've already worn them :)

Here is the link in case you want them also...I think they're a bit cuter in person than in this picture, but maybe I'm just trying to reassure myself that it was money well spent??

And now comes the voting...

Here is option #1.

I have to have a wedge that I can throw on with everything because I love wedges...

What is more comfortable than a wedge?!! I'll tell you...


So here were the Diane von Furstenberg one's I was eyeing, but with the $280 pricetag my husband told me to take those eyes elsewhere...

So here were the replicas I found at Aldo. Not too shabby for a replica...I'll take the $200 savings :) Here is the link for these.

Option #2

This one is my budget-friendly pick at $49.99.

And Option #3

(In coral) Because I love "T" straps, and I think these are adorable.

So...help me out, everyone! Which do you like better?!

And one last thing...

Here are the pants I got for $24.99 at J Crew (cheaper in the store) that I may be a smidge obsessed with! :) I plan on making the rolled up pants my staple wardrobe for the spring...these aren't shown rolled up, but just imagine them in your head...

With one of the wedges you like best...


  1. Ironically, I like them in the order listed :)
    Option ONE is my favorite & 2 is my second fav :) Happy Shopping! :)

  2. Megan!! Shoes, shoes, shoes... I have no idea! I'm going to have to think about that a little longer! Have you looked at all of the wedges online at Target? I know you probably want a more sturdy shoe, but some look really close to what you're looking at!


    I'm keeping my eye out for more because I'm on the lookout too!

    I'll get back with you on your selection :)

  3. im with brittani!! i LOVE the first ones, and i love the Aldo Wooden wedges. I almost got those last week!! love you!

  4. love the aldo wedges. and YOU! thanks for your sweet comment the other day...definitely lifted my spirits. it's almost warm...let's plan a trip.
