High Five for Friday

It's Friday yet again!  The girls have been on Spring Break this week & have one more week to go. That's right, they get a two week Spring Break which I love because, quite frankly, one week just goes by way too fast. This week we've just kind of reveled in not having to do anything in a timely fashion & have been enjoying the slower pace of life. We'll have a few activities planned for next week, but still nothing major.

Anyway, lets talk about High Five for Friday this week. Um, in case you didn't know already, I have a love for shoes (don't all girls love shoes?). It dawned on me yesterday that I've acquired quite a few new pairs in the last two weeks, so why not share them for this Friday's post. I've noticed that I get on these kicks where I'll buy multiple pairs within a very short time frame & I think that's triggered by the changing of the seasons. I will say that I've been really good about donating some older/worn-out shoes lately to make room for the new ones, so I can't feel that bad, right?

Nothing too earth shattering here - just some good deals & styles I couldn't pass up...

New Shoes

1). Mint Flats: I've mentioned this pair on this post before & have been patiently waiting for them to go on sale ever since. Well I finally broke down & purchased them during Target's Buy 1 get 1 50% off sale this week. Yay!!!

2). Patent Grey Kitten Heel Slingbacks:  Well, in order to get said shoes above at 50% off, I had to get another pair at the same time.  I've been searching for grey shoes that would be work appropriate for a while now & for various reasons haven't found anything. Honestly, I didn't like the look of these shoes on the rack & only even tried them on because of the color. However, once I put them on I really liked them!  Goes to show you that you have to try things on!  They look fab with boyfriend jeans too!

3). Strappy Sandals: Nope, you're not having troubles with your vision...I actually bought this pair in both Navy & Brown (insert smiley face here)!  These were on sale at Target last week for $12 a pair & I was having a tough time deciding on which color I "needed" the I got both!  Great for casual wear for Spring, Summer, & early Fall.

4). Ankle Strap Heel:  This is probably my favorite shoe style right now. I love how they are so minimal, yet edgy. I blame this purchase on Kohls Cash that was going to expire so I had to buy something!  However, between a sale, a coupon, my Kohls Cash, & the remainder of a gift card from Christmas, these beauties didn't cost me really anything. I love them!

5). Natural Wedges:  I picked these pretty little things up on a lunch hour when I was "killing time" at TJ Maxx.  At first I really struggled with the price, but later saw them at the Guess Factory store for $20 more than I paid. I still feel bad at the price, but sometimes you just have to buy the shoe! I struggled at the end of last Summer finding a new pair of brown wedges, so that's my justification for this pair.  (Currently on sale at Guess Factory for $44.99, I paid $39.99 at TJ Maxx)

Well that wraps up my five "pretties" this week. How about you, what's worthy of your High Fives this week?

  1. Hello! Following via Bloglovin' from the Totally Awesome Blog Hop!!!

    I love the flats and the wedges! Can not wait to wear summer shoes again sooo tired of boots!


  2. The mint flats are gorgeous and I have been eyeing those same strappy sandals at Target! They are so cute, but I haven't grabbed them yet because I'm not sure if I'll need them or if I already have my sandal bases covered this year. But I do the same thing-- I can go for months without buying shoes, then buy 4 pair in a month. Usually at the beginning of the season!

  3. Oooh, mint flats! Sounds like a total dream shoe :)


  4. That's a great deal on the Target sandals! (I would have also bought both colors!)
