If The Shoe Fits – Michael Kors Edition

If The Shoe Fits – Michael Kors Edition

Helloooooo everyone and welcome to a new issue of If The Shoe Fits – Michael Kors style! In association with my post yesterday entitled “Fall Shopping Fun” these beautiful Michael Kors booties were also purchased with the intention of adding them to my cold weather wardrobe. Take a better look at my pretty new babies and then let’s discuss:


Alright, first let me just say that I am far from a label whore when it comes to my clothing. I don’t care for designer anything. I live for a good deal at Target, Kohl’s, or TJMaxx so it’s extremely out of the ordinary for me to own anything from what I consider a “high end” designer. BUT I saw these boots while shopping with my mom at TJ’s and I fell in love. So how did these MK buckle adorned beauties end up coming home with me? I’m so glad you asked!

I LOVE going to TJ’s with my mom. I can remember going shopping there with my grandma when I was really young and ever since I’ve been a die hard Maxxinista. Whenever my mom and I hit up our favorite store, we always always start in the shoe department. The past few times we’ve shopped at TJ’s we’ve been unimpressed with what they had to offer but not this time around! As I ambled through the aisles of boots, heels, and flats my eyes locked on the industrial style booties. I hurried over and plucked them off the shelf and immediately turned them over to inspect the price. When I saw the tag was far out of my normal price range, I realized that they were Michael Kors. “Oh, that explains it”, I thought to myself and put them back with a heavy heart.

Once my mom caught up to me she asked me if I saw anything that I liked and I pointed out the booties that I just recently returned to the shelf. “Well are you gonna try them on?” she asked. “No, they’re too expensive and I know that if I try them on I’m going to like them too much.” My mom didn’t argue with my logic and we continued to peruse the shoe department together. As my partner in crime tried on some cute new booties of her own, all I wanted to do was try on the Michael Kors. I voiced my insatiable desire deep in my loins to her and she urged me to give them a try. Well, she didn’t have to tell me twice. I rushed my sweet ass to the MK’s and snatched them so fast I was worried that I was going to break a nail. I brought them back to the benches to try them on for the moment of truth…

I sat my sweet tookus on the bench and slipped off my knee high tan riding boots all while thinking, “Sarah, you really shouldn’t be doing this”. But it was too late, my shoes were already off and the Michael Kors were sitting there, waiting patiently to join forces with my feet. I took a deep breath, closed my eyes tight, and shoved the right boot on. I zipped up the zipper on the side and told myself that “that wasn’t so bad” and pulled on the left shoe to complete the pair. I hoisted my sweet badonk off of the bench and walked slowly to the mirror. “Damnit,” I thought as I saw my reflection, “I love them”.

As soon as I saw them in all of their rocker chic glory I knew that I couldn’t leave the store without them. They. Were. Perfect. These Michael Kors booties have legitimately everything that I love. They’re black, buckled, zippered, and edgy as hell. As I previously mentioned, I don’t care about labels. In fact, I hate them. BUT for my first and only pair of designer shoes, I think that they hit the nail on the head!

I don’t plan on buying any more “high end” heels or boots to add to my collection because I really do think that they’re unnecessary. However, I deemed my purchase “worth it” because it really is a one time splurge and the only harm in that is to my wallet. Yes, I do have a lot of beautiful clothes, shoes, and accessories but 99% of them were purchased with price in mind. I’m a smart shopper, I always wait for the best deals, and I like to think that I ball on a budget – but I don’t know any girl that’s going to turn down a pair of Michael Kors booties that were literally made for you!

So there you have it, my latest purchase documented in If The Shoe Fits – Michael Kors Edition. With my amazing new booties and fun new shirt that you can see in “Fall Shopping Fun”, I think that I’ll take a break from the mall for a while…But I really do love both of my new editions to my wardrobe! What has been your favorite splurge purchase? What are you most looking forward to wearing this fall? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Fall Shopping Fun

Fall Shopping Fun

Hello everyone and TGIF!!! This past weekend I enjoyed some Fall Shopping Fun with my mom and got a cozy long sleeved shirt from Francesca’s that I’m seriously obsessed with. Take a look and have a laugh:


^^^ Ahhhh, I love it!

My mom and I took a trip to the mall to utilize one of her coupons at LOFT and we ended up taking the Summit Mall scenic route through a few of our favorite stores. We ended our outing in Francesca’s and the first thing that I spotted among all of their darling fall collection was this crazy comfy heather grey top and I knew that I had to have it. I snagged the shirt from the rack (and was lucky enough to grab the last size small) and headed off to the fitting room to give it a try.

As soon as I entered the dressing room I stripped off my top and pulled the silly slogan-ed smock over my head. I looked in the mirror and was so happy to see that it looked cute as can be. It’s made to be longer and a bit baggy which I personally love. It’s the perfect snuggle up shirt for fall and the material is SO. FREAKING. SOFT. I seriously wanted to keep the shirt on and wear it out of the store once I bought it but my original outfit was pretty snazzy so it needed some show off time!

If you’re familiar with the cuddle worthy fabric of Brandy Melville shirts and hoodies then you’ll know exactly what my new shirt feels like…So in other words, perfect. I adore tops with edgy patterns and sayings on it and my newest purchase is no exception. And to those of you who are curious about the “I told my therapist about you” slogan I’m sporting, the answer is: yes, I probably did!

So there you have it, my first Fall Shopping Fun post! Make sure you tune in tomorrow for a new issue of If The Shoe Fits: Michael Kors Edition, which also ties into my cold weather shopping spree! What is your favorite fall clothing item? What are you most looking forward to this fall season? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
