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!

Best of April Shoe Report!

In honor of May 1st this Shoe Report is looking back at my favorite outfits in April!!  Tell me which outfit was your favorite?

Monday, April 6th:

MONDAY OUTFIT

Shoes: I love these blue shoes.  They’re a great way to add a pop of color with out going over the top.  Also, if you have blue accents in any of your clothes these will bring them out for sure.  I got these beautiful blue shoes at Opitz Outlet, this is the place to go and my favorite part is their clearance section.

Outfit: I’m calling the outfit 50 Shades of blue! Between the blue jeans, blue shirt and blue shoes.  The jeans are my Express ones that I got from Arc’s Value Village.  Let me tell you, if you don’t have a ton of time heading there with a personal stylist appointment is the way to shop!  You don’t spend too much money and you save time; that’s a win win!  The shirt, I believe, is from Nordstrom… it was a gift from my mother-in-law.  I added orange earring that I got from Target just so it was so blue.

Tuesday, April 7th:

TUESDAY OUTFIT

Shoes: These classic pumps are just beautiful, I always get so many compliments when I wear them.  These are from my favorite place to buy shoes justfab.com.

Outfit: Okay, since outside isn’t screaming spring I thought I could scream spring with my outfit.  The dress is from Lularoe and it is so fun and comfortable.  I love that this dress has so much character that you don’t need to add too much more.  Of course, I want to take it to the next level. The scarf and tights are from Target along with the leopard print belt.  Since I’ve challenged myself to mix prints I’m loving it!

Wednesday, April 16th:

WEDNESDAY OUTFIT

Shoes: I absolutely love these booties!!  I love how they completed this look and I got them from my favorite place justfab.com.

Outfit: I’m loving this skirt!  It’s from LulaRoe and I just couldn’t wait to wear it.  I kept this look simple with a t-shirt from Target and just let the skirt shine!

Friday, April 18th: 

FRIDAYS OUTFIT

Shoes: I’m loving the that the mule style shoe is coming back,  I got another pair in the mail this week.  I just love these leopard print from justfab.com.

Outfit: For me, its all about the shoes for this outfit so I kept it simple.  The jeans are from Silverand the sweater is from Target!

Thursday, April 23rd:

THURSDAY OUTFIT

Shoes: Yes, its true!  Flats again for me… still feeling the burn for my work out.  I love these simple black flats from Justfab.com.  I don’t wear flats much but when I do I’m probably wearing these.

Outfit: I’m so in love with this outfit!  There is a boutique in New Mexico that I follow on instagram call Trinton Boutique and I just love there stuff.  I finally ordered this anchor tank (rumor has it they still have a couple in stock) and could wait to wear it.  I was going to wear it this weekend then I decided I could totally dress this up.  So I added my white pants from H&M and then my favorite blazer from MODE in Roseville, MN and BAM I got to wear my new fun tank top to work!

Thanks for visiting and have a happy shoe day! And don’t forget to pay it forward!

Shoe Report: Oscar Trend Edition! (2/23/14 – 2/27/14)

I was inspired after watching all those beautiful dresses on the red carpet to start incorporating those trends into my outfits this week.  So each day you’ll see one or two trends that we’re on the red carpet.  What trends are your favorite from the 2015 Academy Awards?

Monday, February 23rd: 

Did you see how beautiful Jennifer Hudson was in yellow?! Check out her  Romona Keveza dress!

YELLOW DRESS TREND

Which reminded me, I have some beautiful yellow boots I never wear!! Plus, It was freezing out and I needed to add some sunshine to my outfit. These beautiful yellow faux suede boots are from justfab.com.

Monday Shoes

Now for what inspired my oufit! Reese Witherspoon look amazing in her Tom Ford black and white dress, it fit her perfect!

BLACK AND WHITE TREND

This dress was icing on the cake for me… I’ve been seeing black and white stripes all over the places but I didn’t have any a shirt or anything.  I picked up this shirt at Target and my jeans are the curvy fit also from there.  My blazer is from Primp and when they have these in stock they’re always in a variety of colors.  I just love this blazer.

Monday's Outfit

Tuesday, February 24th: 

Tuesday’s outfit is inspired by the beautiful floral trend that was on the red carpet.

Floral Trend

For the shoes, I pulled out a pair I don’t wear too much.  I got these so long ago that I don’t reminder where I got them but they’re such a fun pair of pumps.  The flower on top adds a real conversation piece to the outfit.

Tuesday Shoes

The floral trend continues to my purple cardigan that I got at Target.  This is much bolder than what you saw on the red carpet but I haven’t yet embarrassed the floral look, I am trying.  I paired the top with a floral lace black skirt that I got a Kohl’s.  I really committed to the floral look for this one!

Tuesday Outfit

Wednesday, February 25th:

There were some beautiful metallic gowns Sunday night but my favorite was Laura Dern’s Alberta Ferretti gown.

87th Annual Oscars Red Carpet Arrivals

Of course when I saw this I thought, I really need to pull out my Steve Madden metallic purple boots.  I mean, didn’t everyone?  These boots I don’t bring out too often because they are so pointy that they get scuffed pretty easy.  These were originally $300 but I wanted until they were on ultra clearance and I got the for $65, which I believe is the most I’ve ever spent on shoes.

Wednesday Shoes

For the outfits, it’s all about the black and white trend for me this week.  I keep going back to it because it’s so easy to pull off. All though my favorite black and white gown was Reese Witherspoon look, a close second was Marion Cotillard’s Christian Dior gown.

I was excited to get this new jacket in the mail, I ordered it from Sheinside.com.  It took awhile to get it to me but I got this week and couldn’t wait to wear it.  I paired it with pixie pants from Old Navy.

Wednesday Outfit

Thursday, February 26th:

Pretty in pink! There was a lot more pink than normal at the Oscars and it made me want to embrace pink.  My favorite pink dress was Zoe Saldana’s Atlelier Versace dress but Gwyneth and Anna pulled the look off too.

pink trend

So for the shoes I stuck with a nude pair to keep the look simple.  These are from Target and I have to say they’re like flats to me… when it doubt these are the pair I wear.

Now for the pink.  The only light pink I own is this super comfy sweater from Kohl’s. Seeing the trend on the red carpet made me pull out a sweater that I simply don’t wear that often.  To dress the sweater up a bit I added my anchor scarf which I have no idea where or when I got this. And to finish this simple look I wore my silver jeans that I love so much!!

Thursday Outfit

Friday, February 27th: 

For the last trend this week, I wanted to feature the all black.  This was a unique challenge for me cause I love adding color to my look. Cate Blanchet, Sienna Miller, and Margot Robbie looked absolutely beautiful in all black but I especially love the pop of color Cate added.

all black

For the shoes, I had to wear my favorite black pumps that have a beautiful textured heel!  I love what this heel adds to a look, so simple yet still such a statement.  These were purchased at DSW.

For the outfit, I stayed as true to all black as I could but I took a note from Cate Blanchet and added a little pop of color with my belt.  This entire outfit is brought to you by Target!

Monday Shoes

Shoes: I’ve done something that I’ve never done in the shoe report… wear flats! I know what was I thinking?!  Well, it was freezing outside and my outfit was so comfy it just seemed to fit. Plus, if I’m going to wear flats I’m going to make sure they have some bling on them.  These are from DSW and incorporates a big trend for winter… adding some texture to a simple black shoe.  I featured these in a my fall shoe trend segment on Twin Cities live… watch the segment http://eplayer.clipsyndicate.com/embed/iframe?aspect_ratio=16×9&auto_next=1&auto_start=0&page_count=1&pf_id=8338&pl_id=16353&rel=3&show_title=0&tags=default&va_id=5401958&volume=8&windows=1“>here.

DSCN0071Shoes: I’m not a fan of just plan black boots but boots with some sassy detail I’m all about!  These are simple so I can still wear them with everything which is key to find that happy medium.  These are from DSW and right now they have some great boots from under $60.

Wednesdays Outfit

Thursday, February 19th: 

thursday shoes

Shoes: I love purple so it was a simple decision to buy these when I had a shopping appointment with Michelle at Arc’s Value Village.  If you haven’t set up an appointment with her yet, you’re missing out.  It was the best experience! These are Madden Girls that we’re only $17 and originally over $150!

Friday, February 20th:

Monday Shoes

Shoes: I think everyone should own a pair of red pumps and red boots.  Especially when you don’t have a lot of color in your wardrobe its such a simple way to add a pop of color.  I got these beauties from justfab.com and just love the buckle detail on them.

Fridays Outfit

Outfit: You can’t see them but the detail on my pants are little flowers with red in the center, I had to wear the boots with them of course.  The pants are the pixie pants from Old Navy and the black turtle neck has been in my closet for so long I couldn’t even guess where it was from.

This week the weather was all over the place and so were my outfits… hope you enjoy!!

Monday, February 9th:

Monday Shoes

Shoes: I think these boots are a perfect to dress up an outfit for work but to tame down crazy colors. I got these from justfab.com. It was so nice out I got to wear just these; I didn’t have to change from my snow boots to these.  Very exciting.

Monday Outfit

Outfit: Had to warm up my outfit with a neon look in the winter but of course a comfy sweater had to go with it. The tank is from Target along with the accessories. The sweater is from CAbi Clothing and a fun fact about this sweater its so warm I didn’t have to wear a jacket.  Lastly, the jeans are my curvy fit from Target.

SHOES 1252014

Shoes: Classic black booties that I love so much, I wear these when I can’t figure out what shoes to wear. Yes, sometimes that happens. You guessed it, I got these on justfab.com.

Thursday Outfit

Outfit: These 2 tones black and blue pants are pixie pants form Old Navy. Right now through Monday you can get 50% online and in stores at Old Navy. I do have to say though, I should wear these pants more but for some reason I just have a hard styling an outfit around them. I went with a floral top from Target and a sweater from my mother-in-law.  What do think of how I styled this look?!

Friday, February 13th:

tuesday shoes

Shoes: I simple LOVE these black tie-up booties.  For awhile I just didn’t wear them but they are for sure back in the rotation.  I’ll give you one guess where I got these!  You got it, justfab.com.

Friday Outfit

Outfit: I have a confession.  I put this outfit together last night and simple had no idea what sweater I wanted to wear with it.  So I took the pictures and made a game time decision this morning before walking out the door to work.  The skirt is from LulaRoe.  It’s just so comfy and cozy but I love the neon yellow detail on it.  I put a black tank sweater to go along with it that I got at Marshall’s forever ago.

Lularoe OutfitAnd now for the sweater I put with it, a nice comfy dark gray and black that I got from my mother-in-law. It’s a Eileen Fisher sweater from Nordstrom’s.
