Fire in Your New Shoes

I've come down with some sort of flu, so to make myself feel better I thought I'd blog about my favorite topic: New Shoes.

I definitely went over my monthly clothing/shoe budget this month. While a "Monthly Money Check-Up" is actually on its way this month, I thought I'd take a little survey to find out whether a recent purchase is a yey, or a nay.

cardigan - Dynamite (2011); tank - Dynamite (2011); pants - Gap (2010);
clogs - Aldo "Markley" (2011)

Aldo "Markley"

So I realize that they're not 100% "my style" (if we can say i have a specific style...), but I'm so in love with the clog trend, and these are surprisingly easy to walk in...

What do we think?


  1. ooh i love them! great for spring. you can never have too many shoes, lol :)

  2. I'm not typically into clogs, but I've warmed up to the wooden/studded sandals. I think they're cute and will be versatile. I'm not sure of the longevity of the trend, but who cares if they're still "trendy" if you like them!

  3. I wish I could just go out and make purchases! My husband does, too. I could reallllly use some new shoes, but I hate spending my money. I am such a lame blogger :)

    Your Gap pants are amazing!

  4. we think hell YAY. for sure. i love them. the color is great too. and i love how they spice up the simple (but pretty) jeans and pink top. keepers.

  5. As "organized" as I may be, I do not have a budget for clothes-shoes.
    HOwever this year I have begun keeping track of what I spend and I honestly fear that END of the year amount....
    On a happier note, I love your ALDOS !

  6. I just stumbled upon these clogs and I'm thinking about ordering them. Would you say they are true to size? I'm usually a size 7 but I've heard that Aldo shoes run quite small...

  7. definitely true to size! I got a 6 and they fit perfectly. they are howver a little tight around the front opening, but nothing a little shoe stretcher didnt fix!


I'd love to hear from you!
