Happy Birthday to Me {a Shoe Review}.

3:13 PM

This is a little late...My birthday was a couple of weeks ago actually!  But I just wore my present for the first time last night and I wanted to tell you about it.  I have a hard time spending more than $50 on anything.  I've lucked out and gotten some of my nicest boots (that retail for $150+) on sale at TJ Maxx or Marshall's for just under my weird self imposed threshold.  But I've been craving a couple of pairs of nice dark brown boots/shoots.  I happened upon these initially at AE.com.  They were on sale and I had a store credit that would have made them $55.  As luck would have it, when I finally stopped debating and went to purchase them (you know--for my birthday!), they were sold out!  Boo!  I just couldn't justify spending $100 on this pair of shoes (to be clear, I have justified it before...I just couldn't this time ;).  Even though I wanted them.  So bad.  Then I checked Amazon.  My how I love that site.  And they were less there.  In the meantime I'd gotten some birthday money so I decided to go for it.  I wore them last night and I love them! They were so comfortable.

Here's what I wore:

Women's Plaid Double-Weave Boyfriend Shirts. $29. My shirt was from Gap and had a little more green in it but this is a really close match!
Women's The Rockstar Pop Color Cords. $19. I LOVE these and am bummed that the other color I want is sold out in my size.  They are super cute. Be warned--order up a size.
Clarks Desert Boot in Beeswax leather. $77.14 Super cute and comfy!  If Amazon doesn't have the size/color combo you want, check them out on Zappos, or Clarks.com.  Right now Retailmenot has a Clark's Coupon Code FNF12 for 25% off and free shipping! I can't guarantee that code but right now it has a 92% success rate!

Need more inspiration?  Look at this image I repinned from my good friend who's the queen of Pinterest (I'm not sure that's an official title, but if it was, it would belong to her) 6 weeks ago:

I can't wait till spring (or fall) to be able to wear them like this.  So super cute.
