One FAIR giveaway!

It's summertime, no doubt. The temps are risin', the bbq's are firin' up, and the short-shorts are coming out in full swing! Oh yes yes, and don't forget about the summer shoes that hittin' the sidewalks right now--sizzling sandals, gorgeous wedges, towering platforms...the list goes on & on. But amidst all of the summer fun + fashion, I must confess to you readers what one of my favorite summertime events is--right up there with sale shoppin' and water-sliding, it's THE FAIR! You heard me right, this small town blooded girl just loooooves to throw on her summer sandals, soak up the sun, munch on fried food & cotton candy, and scope out the ferris wheel and outdoor concerts (bikini diet currently on hold!).

You may ask, what sorta kicks does one sport to a day at the fair?--well, personally I'd say it's fair game (no pun intended, promise), to style yourself with some comfy, summery wedges like these chic & stylish 'Jungle' espadrilles from Jessica Simpson...OR if your feet aren't as heel-friendly, you may throw on a shiny pair of gladiator-inspired sandals like these Miss Me 'Leon 2's.
And in honor of the fair season, and all of this summa'time talk, I've decided to treat one lucky reader to 4 FREE TICKETS to see 80's star & grammy-winner Pat Benatar at the Orange County Fair on August 3rd (front & center seats)!!! So. Much. Fun. Oh yes, you remember Ms. Benatar from her uber-amazing power ballads like "We Belong" "Love is a Battlefield" and "Heartbreaker"! You knoooow you wanna grab your best girls & rock out with your spicy dancin' shoes on! Tickets include a full day's admission to the fair, so you can do a lil' pre-concert noshing on famously fried fair food, hop on a few rides, and head to the amphitheater just in time to sing along with 80's diva, Pat Benatar.

  2. Definitely a casual peep toe platform wedge in a solid neutral or bright color. I live in Orange County and would love to see Pat Benetar in concert.

  5. I am addicted to my roman sandals with canvas top for this summer. I get more compliments on them then any other pair of shoes that I wear. PLUS they are super comfortable. I think Pat Benetar would DIG them as well, LOL ;) Love, @StaceySoleil

  7. My favorite summer shoes are either my sandals, or tennis shoes. I know sounds boring, but as a mom of two kids under three my tennis shoes allow me to run around in comfort. @laurat427

  8. Favorite Summer Shoes have to be my Miss Me Numa Lace Up Sandals. Super Comfy, only $28 and after having a baby this summer I needed something super cute to ease me back to pre preggo weight and goodbye to swollen feet :-)

  9. My favorite summer shoes are called "Noshoes". I wear them while singing "We Belong" as a duet with my best friend at the dirty karaoke bar down the street. Is it Tuesday yet?
