Outfit: Floral and Color Blocked Skirt


I have had these Michael Kors platform sandals for about three years now. They are the highest and the most comfortable sandals I own, and that's including flats. I can walk in these all day with no problem. There is no toe rubbing, no pain on the ball of my feet, the instep is at a perfect angle, and they are the perfect shade of nude for my complexion. I can literally wear these sandals with everything. If you find a pair of sandals this perfect, hang on to them. These babies will be with me until they fall apart.










I just love TJ Maxx, Marshals, and Ross; you can save a ton of money by shopping at any of these chains. These stores often have items that are currently in the department stores for up to 60% less. I scored this top and skirt for less than $40 at TJ Maxx earlier this year. I try to visit my local stores at least once a week, because they get new shipments of merchandise every week.




I am linking up to What I Wore Wednesday.

Thank you so much for reading!

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog and following! I'm following you now, too. I love Michael Kors, and that's good to know his shoes are so comfortable. I'll have to keep that in mind. I really have to get to TJ Maxx more often. Maybe once my shopping ban is lifted.

  6. Love the shoes! I miss wearing heals desperately. I work from home and look like a freak wearing them with Jammie's to get the mail ;) Big fan of TJMaxx as well. Wish we had a Ross near here.

    1. I have also recently cut my work schedule, and now I only go in to the office 2-3 times a week. Some of my off days I still wake up and get dressed, and when my husband comes home he asks me where I've been. And when I say nowhere, he just laughs at me and shakes his head.

    1. It is hard work finding the right shoes. I actually bought another pair MK sandals when I bought these and have only worn the other pair once. They were the exact opposite of these in comfort!

  26. I LOVE this look. And girl, you totally just pulled off two trends at once, which is NOT easy! Way to work it!

    Also, I love Marhsall's, Ross, and TJ Maxx. So much more reliable than thrift stores like Goodwill, in my opinion. But just as inexpensive!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog! New follower right here - I love your style!

  38. I so wish I was more dedicated about checking out my local discount stores... I go so infrequently, and then frustrated when I never find anything. But this skirt + top combo is gorgeous! And yes, when you find shoes that awesome, you hold on to them, and look for where you can buy another pair!
