Cha- Cha- Cha- Changes

Okay, now try and get that song out you of your head!  Life is full of changes and sometimes you simply can’t fight it. It’s with a heavy heart that I’m announcing I’m no longer going to be selling shoes.

We're Closing

Happy Shoe Day is going back to its original glory!  Back to where I search for fabulous shoes and show off how a pair of shoes can complete an outfit.

What does that mean for the Happy Shoe Day Shoe Store?  Shoes won’t be available for sale on the site.  Being a full-time mom, working part time and starting my own consulting firm I simply don’t have the time and energy to also own an online shoe store.  Its been a hard decision to close this part of Happy Shoe Day but its what is best for my family and my sanity.

Searching for a positive in all of this, I’m looking forward to going into a shoe store and shopping!!!  Instead of checking out their inventory and wondering how my little shop can keep up.  Also, I no longer will feel guilty buying shoes when I have a basement full of shoes.  Not sure our bank account is happy about that part.

Happy Shoe Day, the blog, isn’t going anywhere.  I’ll be posting more about trends, fabulous finds and even featuring some baby shoes too.

Everything Must Go!

Where do we go from here?!  Well, I need ALL of the shoes that are in my basement to GET OUT!  I’ve updated the shop to the lowest prices possible.  What you see is what you get… all available sizes are there.  Minnesota peeps: check out the shop and then e-mail (or text) me with your order.  This way I can just drop them off and we don’t have to worry about shipping.

I want to thank everyone for supporting this venture.  What a dream come true to have owned my own shoe store.  I’m sad to see the shoes go but excited to see what the future holds.

Happy Shoe Day CLosing Party

And because I always love a reason to shop, see friends and enjoy a class of bubbly I’m going to have my final shoe party.  Come to the Happy Shoe Day Headquarters and shop the rest of the inventory.  The Style Trolley will be here to help complete the outfits with beautiful pieces.

Details: Sunday, July 23rd from 2-6 pm. 4860 Highcrest Dr, Excelsior, MN.  E-mail me at happyshoeday@gmail.com if you’re interested in stopping by.  Would love to see you!

 

Have a happy shoe day!

1 Pair of Jeans = 3 Comfy Weekend Outfits

It’s late August and the fall crisp is starting to sneak into the air.  The Minnesota State Fair is just around the corner and that is the unofficial sign that the summer of 2015 is winding down.  Although I’m not ready to put my summer clothes away, I am ready for the transitional time between summer and fall.

One of my favorite places to shop is The Style Trolley!  This isn’t your average boutique… it’s a boutique on wheels!

This fashion truck has just loaded its latest shipment and it’s stock full of comfy and fashionable fall clothes. Between what Mariah, the owner, has in her truck and what I have in my closet already I created 3 comfy outfits perfect for the weekend. Want to buy these looks right now?  You can also shop online.

Outfit 1: Perfect for a Saturday filled with shopping and maybe even lunch with friends.

All summer long you’ve seen graphic tee’s. How about a graphic sweatshirt?!

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

Pairing this comfy (and extremely soft) sweatshirt with a printed scarf from Primp.  And the jeans I’m using for this entire post are from H&M. To finish the look off add knee high boots from Justfab.

Outfit 2: Date night wearing a kimono!  You saw it this summer and you’ll see it more this fall.

Outfit 7

YOU CAN PAIR THIS VERY COLORFUL ONE WITH ANYTHING You can pair This very colorful one you can pair with anything.  I enjoy classic fall colors when it comes to styling. I paired it with an orange tank top to bring out the the orange in the kimono.

Outfit 7 shoes

With a beautiful top and using the tank top to bring out the colors I wanted the rest of the outfit to be pretty simple.  So, again I just used my skinny jeans from H&M and then using my tan western inspired boots to complete the look.

Outfit 3: The Cozy Sunday Look

When it comes to fall it’s all about layering and being comfy.

Outfit 2

And what is more comfy than a blanket scarf? Not much! I turned this one into a cape. This is the perfect accessory for late summer nights.  I played off the colors in the scarf to brighten the look up.

Outfit 2 Jewelry

Adding a yellow tank from Target to create a nice silhouette for you and added mint earring along with the brown and gold necklace.

Outfit 2 shoes

Then finally a pair of boots I got last fall from JustFab to anchor the look.

Bonus Outfit!!  It’s time to put those jeans away and take out your white pants.

Outfit 6

That’s right! We’re taking a sweatshirt and dressing it up for work… perfect for a Monday.  I love the detail not only around the neck but carrying the same style around the wrist.

Outfit 6 shoes

 And then let’s add some more bling to this outfit with my bedazzled flats to finish the look off.

I hope you enjoy your fall and have happy shoe day!
