And now for the many faces of my shoe shopping experience…
Oooo cute shoes…
OMG, I need these shoes…
Okay, it’s official, I’m getting these shoes…
Uh, wait, do I really need these…
Let me calculate…
It’s finally blazing hot in NC so I guess that means it’s time to feature some of my fave summer shoe finds so far. Currently, digging block heels, fun colors and prints, and of course, you gotta have a basic nude that goes with everything. Still searching for perfect summer shoes? Here are 5 tips to get you started:
1. CHECK YOUR SHOE STASH
I always see what my closet has to offer before I go out and buy shoes I really don’t need. If you have a perfect nude pair at home, there is no need to go in search of another.
2. CHECK YOUR WARDROBE
Take a few mental notes of the summer clothes you have and then take the shoe hunt. It’ll be so much easier to get shoes when you know what clothes you have to pair them with. Plan ahead so you can avoid the dreaded returns.
3. CHECK YOUR CALENDAR
It’s wedding season ya’ll and you know what that means, new shoes! Figure out what big events you have coming up then go shoe shopping. No need in buying a whole bunch of shoes that you can’t wear to all the upcoming weddings, graduations, summer parties, cookouts, beach trips etc…. Shop smarter not harder ladies and gentlemen. Think about it this way, your busy summer schedule, 1, it’s an excuse to go shopping and 2, a girl can never have enough funky wedding shoes that can also be worn to a fun summer soiree.
4. DONATE /TRADE IN
Now if your like me, you probably have way more shoes than necessary. Every year around this time I visit my local Goodwill or trade in my gently used shoes for money. This is a great way to give back and declutter or make space for more cute shoes. However you roll, it’s always a nice feeling to pass on shoes to someone else who will enjoy them too.
5. FIND THE BEST DEALS
So, the only thing worse than being a shoe addict is finding out you can get better deals on shoes than you thought. I’m excited to share that I’ve partnered with Purcado to bring you these good deals! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to SHOE SHOP, NOW, WITH PURCADO!
