FRIDAY FAVORITES....SHOES EDITION


Hello friends and crap, I just realized, you know what we lose this weekend? An hour worth of sleep! How did the dreaded Spring Forward creep up on us already? The bright side is: lighter in the evening and if we screw up next week, we all have a good excuse: Mother Nature and Old Father Time, messed with our internal clocks! Now let’s get to a “Sole” fun Friday Favorites with a Shoes Edition.

1. Sweeter than a Pineapple
Talk about the sweetest spread of pineapple love and joy! A couple weeks ago I showed you these Darling Sparkly Pineapple Shoes that one of my dearest Bloggy BFF’s, the beautiful Kellyann from This Blonde's Shopping Bag had sent me a picture of. I loved them so much but was having no luck finding them so this sweetheart went on a mission and scored them in my size and sent them to me as an early birthday gift. Talk about a heart of gold. Kellyann is always thinking of others and her compassionate heart lifted mine when I needed it most. Another utterly beautiful and talented pal (This girl can cook AND keep you in line with the law), Missy from My Shitty Kitchen, also scored a pair for me not knowing Kellyann had already found a pair. Missy and I concocted a plan for her to exchange for the size that fit our sweets Amanda from CCK Blog as she is a pineapple lover just like me, not to mention one of my favs who I refer to as my lil sis. I always wanted a sister. Missy and Kellyann were able to spread immeasurable joy because it wasn’t just the fun of being able to sport these darling shoes this summer, it’s the thought of people who I’ve never met face to face would take time to look for and purchase something they knew would bring happiness. Now that is unconditional friendship and it’s what continues to motivate me and remind me there is so much love out there spread across the miles and smiles even if it is not always in your own backyard. 

These ladies all stand tall, beautiful and sweet...just like a pineapple and I’m soooo lucky to call these ladies friends. Blessed is what it is!

2. SHOES
So, starting to think about shoe needs for Spring and summer. Two pairs I knew I wanted was another pair of casual clip ons and some chunky espadrilles. And then I saw the knot slides and at such a great price,  was like "yeah, these too!" These three recent purchases have me super geared up for warmer weather!

These Shoes 
I cannot even begin to express my love for these Sperry slip ons. The perforation is refreshing and the platinum color goes with everything and wait for it…the insoles are Memory Foam!!! Like clouds….In LOVE 

BUY HERE


And THESE
These Marc Fisher Annie (Which my husband often calls me) Espadrilles have my heart and feet very happy. LOVE the blush suede.
BUY HERE


AND These Knot Slide Sandals
Aren’t these darling! I love an easy slip on shoe and the fact that they are a soft satin is even better. Under $25! Way cheaper than the Kate Spade Indi Slides.

BUY HERE

3. Week's Attire
Old Navy Dress HERE // Ralph Lauren Slip On Shoes HERE 

Free People Henley HERE

Long Cardigan HERE, American Eagle flannel, Cream Lace Extender HERE

4. Fresh White
This Lou and Grey open front cardigan is so soft and I love the length and sleeve length of it for Spring. Love crisp white on white. Good news, my cough is about done but this pic was taken a couple weeks ago and you can just see the about to get sick look on my tired face, lol! 

Cardigan HERE // Necklace HERE and similar HERE // Top HERE
Leopard Bracelet HERE // Boots HERE

More Inspo 



5. Misc. Fun
Zevia Cream Soda 
I have never been a pop/soda drinker at all. I’ll have an occasional vanilla or cherry coke with popcorn or pizza but we are only talking once or twice a year. I’m a water girl. However, cream soda has always been a favorite flavor and with my parents being from father south, we always would stock up on red cream soda. I saw this all-natural sweetened Zevia (with Stevia) on sale and after reading about it on several sites and the cream soda being a favorite, I decided to give it a try…it is delicious, refreshing and not as sweet as the loaded sugary stuff. 

BUY HERE and you can find these at Target and Wal-Mart and some grocery stores.


This Meme
My favorite Spring Forward Meme, with yet even more snow on the ground here, yep, so true! My mom and one of our sons are both in Florida so at least some of us are wearing sandals, lol! 


May this weekend  SPRING into greatness for you pretties!!


Linking up with  Amanda // Friday Favorites  // High 5 For Friday // 5 on Friday // Fashion Friday

  11. I love all of your shoe inspiration. Last fall I decided that most of my springy/summery shoes were worn out and they left the scene. I now need to replace. Thanks. :)

    I've never been a closet person but yours is making me green!!

  15. Those pineapple sandals are still the cutest! I can’t wait for it to get warmer so I can start wearing sandals again, although I’m not looking forward to losing an hour of sleep this weekend!

  16. LOVE those espadrilles!!! You also look lovely in that one photo despite the fact that you were not feeling well. Love that Lush tunic on you too! :-) I too have been thinking about spring shoes. I have a pair of slip on sneakers but they are fabric and my feet either sweat in them or I get a blister. I tried wearing socks with them too but the socks just slide around. Ugh. Anyways!! I hope that you have a fabulous weekend and hopefully spring will be here soon!! Sending you a hug too! :-)

  33. I love, love shoes and am on a big time hunt right now for super comfortable stylish shoes to take to NYC in May. We'll be walking and walking so they have to be comfortable but I refuse to wear tennis shoes, so surely I'll find something half way cute between now and then. Have a great weekend springing forward!

  41. I love all the shoes, especially the platinum Sperry's. I will have to look into that soda. Unfortunately I AM addicted to diet coke, so maybe if I find a fizzy alternative I can wean myself away from them. Have a wonderful weekend!
