So many shoes who knows what to do?

How to pick out the perfect shoes

I know you have heard that women actually have too many shoes. I say that is a fallacy. You can never have too many shoes, just not enough places to wear them all. I used to worry about my shoe issue, but that was before Payless. I can pick up two pairs for the price of one in a department store. They are on trend, and they do not break my budget. I had such a hard time deciding between the gold ones and the red ones that I bought them both. I mean why chose when you can afford two?

I will show you how your shoes can change your look. I will also remind you to head into Payless because you will be pleasantly surprised by what you can find. I have been stopped three times now by people asking me where I got my shoes. They almost fell over when I said Payless and then when I told them what I paid. They kept saying “for real”. Yes, for real I am the Real Advice Gal, and I tell the whole truth and the shoes I was wearing were Payless and they look “AMAZING!”

This is a normal outfit for me dark jeans and a silk blouse. You can see the difference in the outfits as I change the shoes.  It is an easy way to update your clothes that you have in your closet. You can make them very fancy for the holiday with little more effort by  slipping on something fabulous. I selected the  Payless black booties first because  I had them. Then I added a pair of red sparkle heels at my daughter’s insistence and a pair of gold pumps. They all changed my look from frumpy to fabulous. I will also admit I love wearing heels so I can look my husband straight in the eyes.

It isn’t hard to change your shoes and update your style. It is easy, affordable and fun and all done at your local Payless store or online. I buy my whole family shoes at Payless because there is something for everyone. They have sneakers, dance shoes, to shoes that you can wear out dancing.

I like to use the clothes I have in new ways. You can switch out your shoes to update your look. It is the easiest way to take your outfit from day to night and drab to dapper.  We all know people look at our shoes, so why not give them something to not only look at but compliment you on.

You can buy the shoes I bought online or in the store. I just love them. The only question is which one do you like best?

The Story of How There wasn’t Just One Pair of Boots

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Payless for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

   Every person needs boots. They are the perfect accessory for everything from jeans, skinny pants, skirts, and even dresses. The looks these days allow you to wear every type of boot with a dress. I am a little fancier so I choose to wear the fashion forward bootie from Payless. You can see how I styled my affordable and on trend Payless shoes. When I know I am going to be running around a lot I like to wear a flat boot.
   This is the problem. I went to Payless. I was on the lookout for a black over the knee boot which I found for a HUGE discount. I got the designer Christian Siriano Pronto Stretch Black Boot
   You would think that is where the story ends. You know a lady walks into Payless and sees the boot she is looking for, then she tries them on and they fit. She buys them. Well, that is what almost happened until this lady on her way out of the store saw a pair of snow boots that were also on sale.
   The snow boots she had were thrown away last year after she wore them until the soles came off. She was sitting trying on the snow boots when her eyes met the rain boats. They were so cute. What would it hurt to try those on? Wow! They fit. They also landed on top of the snow boots’ box. Then out of the corner of her eye what did she spy? It was a tan pair of boots with quilting on the side. Wouldn’t they be divine for those jeans and sweater she had the perfect outfit in mind. I would say that was all but in her Payless haul there were gifts to be had. The gifts were a pair of black boots and one in brown so that her friends could look fashionable while strolling around town.  I figured why should I be the only one to have such fun. I know how fashionable and affordable Payless can be and how happy new shoes makes me.
   I needed friends to share my boot bliss with me. This princess luckily had her prince with her, and he dutifully carried out my new boots he even agreed to pay for a few! What is better than new boots? Well, getting and giving them as gifts of course! I sure can’t wait for my friends to open their gifts since they always compliment me on my style and the best part is their prices weren’t vile!

  Lucky for me Payless has a variety of styles, color options, and heel heights. The other thing that Payless does well is they have a variety of widths. It is truly hard to find a boot if you have larger calfs. Payless has thought about this issue and addressed it. They offer a how to measure guide, so you know what look to select in the store or online. You can ask the staff at Payless to help you find the right boot for you. They are well trained and helpful. I asked them tons of questions because I knew I wanted an over the knee boot. I just wasn’t sure what kind. They showed me all the styles in a variety of sizes because if they didn’t have it in stock then they offered to order them online since they have free shipping if you spent $25.

I  suggest combing the Payless website or dropping into their store because I am amazed by what they have to offer. Payless does not only offer a vast selection of basic footwear, but the store is an all-inclusive destination for on-trend, special occasion, and stylish everyday footwear. I have been sharing my finds with my friends, and they also were pleasantly surprised to fill their shoe needs at such reasonable prices.

I also recommend that you check out Payless on Pinterest to see all their awesome on-trend shoes and style inspirations.

On-Trend and Affordable Shoes from Payless

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Payless for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

On-Trend and Affordable Shoes from Payless


   I got a secret come closer. I like shoes. I love shoes. I love shoes that are in style. I love shoes with heels, without, with straps, without, shoes that are colorful and those that are black in fact if you gave me a shoe I would never give it back. The problem is most shoes are trendy, and that is okay if you follow my affordable budgeting ways.

   Do you look at your shoes and wondering what decade they are in? I do a shoe clear out every fall and every spring. I line them all up. I do this when my husband isn’t home, and my kids aren’t around to count them. Do not worry I shop at Payless so they are affordable and fashionable. I sort my shoes by color. Then I look at each color and think did this fit? Did I wear this a lot last season? Do I still need this shoe? Is it in style?  I consult the internet and the Payless website to figure it out. If it isn’t, then I  clear it out. You do understand the best reason to let go of old shoes is to save space for the new ones.  

   I looked at my black shoes and realized the trend was the bootie.  I headed to Payless to find out which one would do. I found so many, but I was in love with these two. It is easy to find a ton of choices. I went back to what I already had and made the decision to move forward with the heeled boots.

   I look for fashion, fit, and affordable pricing. I look for something that is stylish, comfortable and takes my outfit to the next level. The truth about fashion is your shoes tell your story. They are the easiest accessory to update an outfit. You can take a simple black dress and change the look with a new shoe. The only problem with Payless is we never leave with just one pair; they have such a great selection that my children always find a new pair. I will not confirm or deny that I can’t just leave with one pair usually at least two. It is easy to buy multiple pairs because you want to capture the newest trend at an affordable price. 

   I am simply in love with my new platform bootie by Fioni. I have worn them with jeans, dresses, shorts, and even a skirt. They are perfect each day, and I can’t wait to wear them this holiday season because they look cute and does not hurt my feet! Score adorable and comfortable!  

   Payless has been a top trusted American based shoe brand for decades. Payless understands the importance of offering quality, on-trend, affordable footwear for women and their families, helping them look and feel great every step of the way. You can check out Payless on Pinterest to see all their style ideas.

   So you be the judge are these shoes cute or what?
