With a Bow On Top!

Browsing one of my go-to's, Piperlime.com, and came across these lovely, lady-like Kate Spade pumps. I think I'm in love. Adorable and appropriate for any season, these Kate Spade heels are perfectly shaped, styled...with a bow on top!

The 'Krysta' by Kate Spade New York glitter pump has Carrie Bradshaw written all over it:

'Karolina Bow' by Kate Spade New York is equally fabulous, with a more conservative spin:
Ms. Spade is known for her quality shoes, bags, accessories, and more--why not add these beauties to your shoe closet collection?!

On Men's Style: Burnetie Footwear

My husband is the cutest. Ok ok ok, hopefully EVERYONE would say that about their husband, but I really do love mine. He's not the biggest fan of shopping and fashion, but he is open-minded enough to occasionally allow me to go shopping for him, dress him up like my own Ken doll, and even push the limits once in a blue moon, with skinny jeans and hipster boots. And it all looks so good on his many physique, so I can't help be continue to work my fashionista magic on him!

When it comes to shoes, the hubs knows what he likes. He likes comfort and versatility: kicks he can wear to work and to play. His latest love are these 'Mark' boat-style canvas men's shoes from Burnetie. They go with his blue jeans, grey jeans, and even stylish shorts for summertime.

Love, love, love! Oh, and he wants me to tell you all that these shoes make him feel extra manly--so manly he automatically gravitates toward manly tools like an axe. Oh yeah.

So what does your manly-man sport on his feet these days as his go-to shoes?

Pinching pennies.

I've been trying to be super good lately about my shopping habits. I know, you're probably wondering if I'm running a fever, or am in some sort of hallucinogenic'd state of mind (believe me, I can't help but stop and wonder occasionally myself these days!). But after looking at our household budget in this season of our lives, I felt like I should cool it on the weekly trips to the mall, and stop shamefully hiding shopping bags and silencing tag pulls from my husband. Eek!

One guilt-free loophole to the pinching pennies state of mind is, of course, going the discount route. Instead of shopping the serene aisles of Nordstrom (where I always manage to get sucked into some fabulous heels), try hitting up Forever 21, for some adorable, on-trend kicks, at 1/4 the price...

D'Orsay Ankle Strap Pumps are soooo spicy, and 27 bucks! To. Die. For.:
 
I dig the edgy look of these Button Strap Booties, designer style at a oh-so right price:

F21's Satin Heart Pumps can steal any shoe-lover's heart:

So what's your solution to shopping when you're pinching pennies?
