Week 3 – Shoe Saves # 14 – 22

Wow!  Three weeks down, and I can’t believe how well it is going.

Again, I have only a short post this week in the Shoeper Shoe Challenge.

Also, this week was apparently “Cat Photobomb Week!”  I think I counted four cat drop ins. Bad kitties! 😉

Here they are:

I have had another successful week of saving shoes along with Amber and her blog Shoeperwoman.

By the way, my actual shoe saving week seems to be going from Friday to Thursday, but I am going to keep my dates in the post title as a regular week.

Also, this post will be a simple one, mostly photos, due to a long week at work.

On to the shoes!

This Week in Shoes – 9/1 – 9/7 (Saves 1 – 5)

I can’t believe I am once again attempting to wear all of my shoes in one year!

As I mentioned before, I am going to join in with the shoe guru Shoeperwoman, in this endeavor.  What was I thinking!?!? 😉
At least I started off with a strong week.  Here are the pictures for week one.
#1  I wore this to church and lunch.  I am loving my new bag, by the way.
#2  This is a very casual Sunday afternoon outfit.  Our weather is very hot right now, so I am all about being cool and comfy.
#3  Another casual outfit for Labor Day.  We just ran about town and did some errands. I finally got an iPad!  I have such a super Hubby!
#4  A day at work.  I am happy that I may have more of a chance to save shoes this time around, because I can wear them to the office.  As you may notice, I switched to a regular camera here.  The photo quality is a bit better.
#5  And finally, another work outfit.  These shoes are so old, but I love them dearly.  They are almost as comfortable as my beloved flip flops, which by the way, I will be wearing today!

Shoeper Shoe Challenge 2013-2014

One of my favorite bloggers, Amber from does a fun shoe challenge and I believe I am going to try to participate once again this year.

I say “try” because I am a bit of a collector when it comes to shoes.  I am not entirely sure I can wear all of my shoes in one year, but I believe it is worth a try.

My first step is to count my shoes. Ugh! I try not to know the actual number, so I don’t have to divulge that information to others. 😉

Here are a few photos of the shoes as they stand today.  The number turned out to be 149.  I did not edit the collection at all before I counted, so I think I will be doing some thinning out as I go for sure.

Also, I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures.

Shoe Save #71 Vince Camuto Multi Color Sandals

I actually did wear these shoe this week IRL.  Why am I speaking like a teenager rather than The Mother?  I have no idea.

I simply love these shoes!  They are fun to look at, and fun to wear.   Also, and might I add, most imortant, is the fact that my toes matched the red/orange color on the shoe perfectly.  I take my toe color seriously! 😉

This is the color, from an earlier post.  It’s OPI’s “Monsooner Or Later.”

I am sorry not to have a full outfit shot, but if you look closely, you get the general idea.  This is The Mother’s typical uniform.

Shoe Save #69 – Red Betsey Johnson

I have worn so many shoes recently that I have not photographed.  I hate when that happens.  Here are a pair that I did manage to document.  (Say Hi to Bing everyone!)







I love the red shoes with the pink soles.  I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about those two colors together, but I just seems so cheerful.










I was inspired to wear red shoes with a blue polka dot dress but the adorable Amber at  I loved how she wore it, and I just happen to like how it turned out on me! 🙂









Here I am with my fabulous new coat. (Gifted by Husband In Scrubs.)  I wear so much navy blue, that I know I am going to get a ton of wear out of this coat.  Plus, it’s just so warm and cozy!  Yay for “After Christmas Sales!”

The All-In-One Post: Dressember #5 Shoe Save #66 & Inspiration Monday

Who knew I was so talented, that I could solve 3 posts in 1???

Why, yes.  I am wearing sunglasses in the house.  I thought it lent more creed to my Inspiration Monday look.

Here is our inspiration photo from the TwoBirds blog.  For more outfits, look here.

If you can’t tell, I was going for the Duff sister on the left, but with a Dressember twist.

Here are my pieces separately.

Here is a close-up of my cute necklaces.

Aren’t they adorable!?!

And finally… another Shoe Save.

These boots are Michael by Michael Kors, and I am loving them today, especially because it is cold in San Diego today.
