Spring Fever and Other Afflictions

Spring Fever and Other Afflictions

Last week I wasn’t able to bring you any new outfit pics.  Mostly because I spent the week laying around in my PJ’s and hacking up a lung after being diagnosed with bronchitis.

When I came home from the doctor and shared my diagnosis with my family, they felt sorry for me laughed and in their best Sweet Brown impersonations said “I got bronchitis!  Ain’t nobody got time for that!”

If you’re not yet aware of the origin of their mockery, then check out this video of YouTube sensation Sweet Brown.

Trust me, you will sing that all day.

Bronchitis aside, I’ve been suffering from another, more pleasant affliction…spring fever!  That one was a little easier to cure thanks to some unseasonably warm days last week.  A mani/pedi and my new open toed flats did the trick quite nicely.

I stopped by Old Navy last week to find a new pair of boyfriend jeans like my bloggy friend Carly of Thirty Something Fashion posted about HERE.  Unfortunately my Old Navy didn’t have them in my size but I did find this green and white gingham shirt, so it was still a successful trip.

I was so excited that it warmed up enough for me to finally wear my super cute new leopard flats from Sole Society.  These shoes are incredibly comfortable and well made.  I’m a huge fan of this brand and will definitely be buying more.

Like these.

Or these.

And definitely these.

 It’s Your Turn:  Are you suffering from spring fever too?  What are some of your favorite pick me ups on winter days?

Payday Pretty is my regular Friday feature where I challenge women to squeeze a little out of the weekly budget and do something pretty for themselves. I also provide affordable style inspiration for you to get your shop on.

Hello pretties and TGIF!  I was sad to see the BYOB series come to an end, but never fear, I have more fun in store for 2013.

Recently I was introduced to a new online shoe retailer called Sole Society. Sole Society is a members’ only web site (membership is free) offering on-trend styles at amazing prices.

So this is how it works.  1.  You sign up for free.  2.  You get great shoes at incredible prices.

Basically they are able to cut out the two times price markup traditional retailers typically apply to shoes by skipping the middle man (retail stores) and selling direct to their members.

Oh and better yet, they are partners with two of my faves – Vince Camuto and Nordstrom.   Together they design an exclusive line of shoes and accessories and deliver them to Sole Society members with free shipping both ways – all without the high price tag.

As a recipient of an Influenster Vox Box, I received a special offer of $25 off my first purchase.  So, I thought why not try them out?

There were so many great choices, I had a hard time picking just one pair.  So I got two.  🙂

This ankle strap color block heel.

[Francesca – $49.95]

And these fun leopard flats.


[Vida – $49.95]

With my $25 off coupon and free shipping, I got two pairs of shoes for what I’d normally spend on one!

And I have a few more pairs on my wish list already…

Like these snakeskin platform pumps.


[Lana – $49.95]

These adorable wedges.


[Sharon – $49.95]

And these suede chunky heels.


[Cleo – $59.95]

Do you want a pair too?  You know you do!

Well I have a special treat just for you.  Sole Society is extending a $25 off coupon to all of my readers!  All you have to do is enter coupon code INFLUENSTER25 at check out.  But hurry, this code expires on January 31st, 2013.

This coupon makes most of their shoes just $25! Totally Payday Pretty approved.

Happy shopping and be sure to show me what you get!

Stay pretty,
