So I mentioned I got a steal of a deal on shoes recently. Now I certainly hope y'all didn't think I meant heels or anything sophisticated like that. Ha! We're talking very casual and very budget friendly here, people. What happened was that I was browsing in Payless Shoes (i.e. budge friendly) and noticed some cute buy one get one free slip-ons for summer. It's so hard to pass up a BOGO, am I right? Well I was in a hurry, so I didn't buy them. I came home and could not stop thinking about how cute they were. And it didn't help that I also had a $10 off $30 purchase coupon burning a hole in my pocket. ;)
Soooo...here's the deal...the $10 coupon started on May 31st and the BOGO ended on the 31st. So basically, I HAD to buy some shoes on that very day in order to save money, right? Makes total sense if you're a woman.
So, here's what I got...
I love the pastel stripes and the black and white pattern will go with a lot of things.
Then I added these cute flips in order to bump my order up to $30 so I could save $10. :)
They're all SO comfy! I also got these little no show socks at Payless to wear with my slip-ons. They're very low and don't show at all. I don't know about you, but I still like wearing some sort of sock with my slip-ons.
And they have this little gel thingy on the inside of the heel so they don't slip down...
With my stellar savings/coupon skills, I got all four (and the socks) for $37. Not bad for some cute things to make my feet look pretty.
Have you shopped Payless lately? They really have some cute styles. Don't forget if your store doesn't have your size or the style you're looking for, they can order it and have it shipped to the store for free. And my Payless also takes $3 off the price if the store is out of stock and they have to order it for you. Not sure if all stores do that, but it's worth asking.
Now for the tip of the week:
I had to share this fantastic tutorial from Amy at Euna Mae's on how to properly cut a round cake...
I pulled this pic from her instagram account @eunamaes where she shows to cut the round cake down the center, then cut it in thin slices instead of wedges. Brilliant! I can't ever seem to make my wedges the same size, so I loved this tip. Y'all should totally be following Amy on IG. She's the cutest southern lady with a wonderful shop that carries the most adorable heirloom kitchen supplies and home goods. (click on the link above to visit) Now I want to make a round cake just for the pleasure of cutting it properly. :)
I'll be back early next week with my backyard landscaping post. Y'all have a great day!
