Simple Shoe Storage

Simple Shoe Storage

I’ve been wanting to organize my shoes into a simple shoe storage solution for a while.  Whenever I buy a new pair of shoes, I just add the box to a shelf in my closet. I hated the way all the boxes were different colors and sizes, and I never knew what shoes were in which box.  It was a hassle going through all the boxes to find what pair I was looking for.

I finally decided to do something about it!

Shoe Storage boxes

While shopping at Hobby Lobby, I found these sturdy boxes that are the perfect size for shoes and low boot storage.  They have several different patterns to choose from.  The size I decided to purchase is 13 3/4″ X 5 1/2″.  Depending on the shoe, you may be able to fit 2 pairs of shoes per box.

Once I had purchased all the boxes the shoes would go in, I took an individual  picture of all my shoes.  I then used the free online photo editing program PicMonkey to put 4 shoes per page, so I could then print out the images.

Once the shoe pictures were printed, I cut each shoe picture out individually.  I then adhered each photo to the front of each box

and placed the shoes in their corresponding box.

 And there you have it, an organized simple shoe storage solution!

It’s Football Season!

It’s the first official weekend of football season!

It's Football Season

It’s that wonderful time of year when people pack into a football stadium, excitement is in the air. It may be your local high school game, college game or a NFL game. You walk through the tailgates and the kids playing catch, pass all the people carrying solo cups, and into the stadium you go. The smell of hot dogs and kettle corn surround you as you walk to your seats.

What do you wear to a football game?

Depending on the weather, go casual and comfortable.  Remember even if the game starts out in 90 degree weather it can quickly change to the 60’s in no time flat.  It’s nice to carry a scarf in your purse for just those times. Wear comfortable shoes, sometimes you have to park far from the stadium.  Keep accessories to a minimum, after all it is a sporting event.

Saturday Summer Fun with Boyfriend Jeans

Saturday Summer Fun

Going anywhere special Saturday?

Have some saturday summer fun with boyfriend jeans!

Nothing is more comfortable than a great pair of boyfriend jeans.  They are comfortable and can be dressed up by wearing them with a great pump.  I just love the Dolce & Gabbana design, the foodie in me loves the lemon motif on the pump.  These jeans can easily have a more casual look by wearing them with a sling back flat.  Your accessories also play a huge roll in how dressy or casual your look with be.

However you choose to wear them, boyfriend jeans are a fashion staple every woman needs in her wardrobe!

All Dolled up for Brunch

Fashion-post#1-Summer BrunchAre you going to brunch soon?

If you’re not you need to plan one soon!  Call some friends, hurry!

Brunch is a perfect time to savor your meal for hours while enjoying the company and conversation of good friends.  Brunch is my favorite meal to eat out at a restaurant, especially if it is a buffet.  I like trying a bit of everything, while not rushing my meal.

What is your favorite brunch cocktail or mocktail?  A bloody Mary? A Mimosa? or my favorite a Bellini?

Most of the time when I’m brunching, I go pretty casual, but there are a few times every season when it’s fun to go all dolled up for brunch.  Summer is definitely one of them.
