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?

On-Trend and Affordable Shoes from Payless

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?
