The Shoes You Need are at Belk and They’re on Sale

The amount of self control it’s taken for me not to buy every pair of animal print shoes I’ve come across in the past month is immeasurable. Any one else feel me?

Stripes and animal print are pretty much the only two colors in my closet, so when I open any of my social media apps and see everything being offered in animal print I want to buy it all.

The fact that I just walked through Belk in West Town Mall and they not only have great shoes in said prints, but they ALSO have them on sale was almost more than my self control could handle. And the thing is, I’ve got to go back tomorrow so we’ll see how it goes.

I did, however, want to make sure you knew of all the fabulous options they have so I walked around and took pictures, maybe licking a pair or two – but that’s not important.

Okay back at Nordstrom Sale time (it’s like a full season of the year – Spring, Nordrstom Sale, Summer, Fall, Winter) these puppies were everywhere. And everyone was raging about how cheap they were if they rang in even slightly under $80. These, my friends, are $50!

I’m just going to close my eyes and post the next two shoes. After transferring the one with the stripe down the side from my pictures, I was mentally making plans to go back to the store and buy them. The Lord, my husband and my closet knows I don’t need another pair of athleisure shoes. If you do, please buy these and let me wear them through you…

Okay let’s take a break from animal print for a second and talk about these floral heels. While you might think you couldn’t pull these off in the fall (CAUSE IT’S FALL OFFICIALLY YOU GUYS) you’re wrong. I think these would add a cool pop of fun to an all black outfit, even a gray tshirt and jeans.

Now back to our regularly scheduled animal print program…the kitten heel on these is just right.

The word basic never raises heart rates. It’s association in the past couple years is pretty, well basic.

I feel as if I’m trying to define something to my 4-year-old…

“Mommy what’s basic?”

“Welp, it’s preeeeetty basic.”

So when you think about replacing the basics in your closet it’s about as exciting as paying for your things to be handed back to you from the cleaners. Whoop-de-do.

However, when you see THESE basics, you’re going to start humming “Bringing Sexy Back” cause girl, you’re going to feel it in any of these jackets – even the button downs I brought with me on the show are going to get you excited.

And think of all the new ways you can work these puppies into your regular rotation. I know there’s a black number I hold up that could really jazz up my everyday t-shirt and yoga pants world. So look for yourself and check any of them out in Banana Republic or White House Black Market in West Town Mall!
