Not only is the color green the pantone color of the year (Greenery to be exact) , it’s slowly becoming one of my favorite colors to wear.   I love pairing it with navy or yellow.  When I saw this green silk wrap dress at Banana Republic last month, I knew I had to give it a try.  It is a little low cut but there is a small button at the top that keeps it from plunging too low.  I opted to still wear a tank underneath, just because I didn’t want to chance the button coming undone.  Of course I waited for the dress to go on sale and snagged it for 40% off.

It was still a little chilly out when I took these photographs so I threw on my thrifted gap denim jacket.  This dress could easily be paired with a cardigan or worn alone.  It can be worn to work, out to dinner, church, or even date night, the versatility makes it a great investment.

The leather shoes are also Banana and I picked them up in the dead of winter for 26.00!!!  I love finding sandals in the winter, and they are always at least 75-80% off retail price.  Another great thing about the color is the endless assortment of shoes you can wear with it.  Gold, navy, nude are just a few colors that come to mind.

I shopped for black and white shoes last year to wear to my mother’s surprise birthday party.  I just couldn’t find a pair that I simply had to have and to be honest a pair that I wanted to invest in that I knew I would wear more than once.  Well fast forward to this spring, I’m driving down the road a few weeks ago and what do I see?  A beautiful black and white striped pump plastered on a store front window.

I have not shopped at a Payless shoe store for myself since I was a kid.  It’s definitely on my list of shoe stores when I’m searching for special occasion shoes for the kids but I just don’t shop there for shoes for myself.  Well that changed quickly once I saw this striped pump that I just had to have in my life.  I went into the store and tried on my size, they fit perfectly.  The price was only 24.99 and I had a text coupon for an additional 25% off (I subscribe to text messaging from every retailer you can think of.  If there is a discount to be had, I’m going to get it..lol).  I walked away with my 19.99 black and white pumps.

After wearing them several hours I did end up switching to my black flats.  That’s pretty normal for me after about 3-4 hours of walking around in heels.  Honestly the shoes are pretty comfortable and the quality is pretty decent.  I would definitely recommend them if you are searching for some on-trend fun heels that won’t hurt your pocket.
