Work Shoes Don’t Have to Be Boring

Image

I needed some cute work shoes fast, as I started a new job yesterday! I found these adorable polka dotted pairs at the Gap. Since I wear so many basic clothes to work, these shoes should go with pretty much any outfit. I like the cute quirky style that comes with the lace up oxfords, and the fun pop of color with the pointed classic flats. Totally impressed with Gaps shoe selection – they are fun, affordable, and who doesn’t love polka dots!?

A Little Bit Country

Image

This weekend I flew home to Sacramento to celebrate my baby sister’s 16th birthday. My mom and I whipped together some fun country-themed decorations with the help of Rustic Event Rentals. They supply great custom accents for any occasion. Check them out at: http://www.facebook.com/RusticEventRentals

Some sand blasted glass jars, tied with burlap and twine made the perfect country lanterns.

Image

We used these colorful cowboy hats as both party favors and as garland to decorate!

Image

My favorite inside-tip from the girls at Rustic Events was the cowboy boot center pieces!

Image

All you have to do is place a regular glass jar or vase inside a cowboy boot.

ImageImage

Just add water and flowers!

Image

Yes, that is a mechanical bull– what country-themed party would be complete without one?

Image

So, my sister insisted on having Taco Bell to serve for dinner.

Image

Rustic Event Rentals provided the cutest wooden containers to display all the tacos and burritos.

Image

It was a great way to feed hungry teenagers!

Image

Chalkboards are an instant way to personalize an event.

Image

I loved all different shapes and sizes and scattered them around the party.

Image

Other decorations were simple items we found around the house – like jean jackets.

Image

The party was definitely a success thanks to Rustic Event Rentals! Thank you for some great ideas and supplies!

Spring Sandal Savings

Image

I hate spending a lot of money on sandals. No matter how much you spend on them they will be dragged through sand, doused with sun tail oil, drenched in chlorine – ultimately meeting their demise at the end of every season. These three pairs are stylish and cheap!

Jessica Simpson Dusty Blush Jaqcui Flip Flops: I found these cute braided flip flops with rhinestones at Marshalls for under $30

Image

Yellow Box Jessica Flip Flops: Nope these aren’t the $195 Tori Burch Sandals – but you could have fooled me!

Image

Merona Emily Braided Strap Gladiator Sandal: My co-worker just grabbed this adorable pair at Target for her upcoming trip to Jamaica! I cannot believe they are just $15!

What are your favorite sandals this spring?
