A Bootie-ful Thursday!


Will got a little creative with the camera this morning, hence the diagonal shot. Here is another pic in the great outdoors. Which I have to admit, I really like how this pic turned out. The colors look vibrant and my necklace really stands out. More outside shots to come. Maybe I can try to change the scenery here and there. So here are my bootie-ful deatils...

Purple top - Target
Grey skirt - Old Navy
Crazy pattern hose/tights - Target
Tate Oxford Booties - Payless
Green beaded necklace - gifted from Lynette


So if you read V's blog, you'll see that we've been watching the bootie prices. She has loved then from the beginning. As for me, it took a little time, but about 3 weeks ago I jumped on the bootie/shootie bandwagon. Of course they had these super cute pair at Payless, but for $30, I just wasn't ready to spend that much on a trendy shoe. This past Monday, Will and I were on the hunt for the closest Payless to our condo. I had a coupon (courtesy of Kimberly's coupon blog) and I was at least going to get 15% off. It was 8:00 pm, the last day for the coupon, and we never found it. I figured it wasn't meant to be. Then yesterday, something told me I should check their site in case they marked it down. Low and behold, it was on sale for $19.99, which is a better price than if I had used the coupon. I was thrilled. I called V and let her know. So last night after my workout, I made a mad dash to the Payless closest to the gym. Of course the only size they had was a 5 1/2. I asked the sales girl and she printed the locations that had those shoes in my size and at the bottom of the printout was a coupon for and extra $3.00 off my total. Of course I raced over and bought my booties for the bargain price of $16.99. Score!

I just love purple and gray together--I wore the combination a couple weeks ago. It just never fails to look completely chic! You look great!

V said...

I really like the shirt. I was wondering how that would look and of course purple's my favorite color!

I love the artsy photo skills. I try to be creative sometimes but it never comes out right for me. The outfit is cute love it.

OK. Why didn't I get the purple memo today? You, Kimberly and V and two of my co-workers wore purple. I'm not feeling the love, LOL.

The shots outside are pretty great. Tell Will he did a great job being creative :)
