When I was out of town this weekend at our family ranch with my little family and some friends,
something BIG happened on this little ol’ blog of mine.
Yep, when I was enjoying my favorite people in my favorite place……
be still my heart
Pinterest Told Me To reached 1,000,000 pageviews.
No…that’s not a typo… I didn’t put too many zeros there.
The blog actually reached 1 MILLION pageviews.
HOW IN THE WORLD DID THIS HAPPEN?
I don’t know how it happened, but I am forever grateful to all of you for making it happen!
You read the blog, you come back day after day, and you tell your friends!
On Friday I’m going to do a big giveaway to celebrate YOU!
So, stay tuned for a giveaway announcement!!!
It’s gonna be good. It’s gonna be HUGE!!! 1 winner takes all!
I do want to acknowledge that the main reason the blog has grown so quickly has been because of other bloggers and friends that have been sweet enough to mention me on their awesome blogs.
First and foremost, I wouldn’t even be coming close to 1 million pageviews if it weren’t for Shay and the constant mentions I get over at Mix and Match Family.
THANK YOU SHAY! LOVE YOU!
You have been my biggest bloggy cheerleader, and I am forever grateful for your support!
Plus, it’s just plain fun to do this blogging thing with you! 🙂
During the last 7 months I have also picked up lots and lots of new readers from Kelly’s Korner, Big Mama, The Blue Eyed Bride, Hi Sugarplum, and The Larson Lingo.
So….THANK YOU KELLY, MELANIE, ERIN, CASSIE, and Mel!
I have learned so much about blogging from you ladies (I read most of your blogs before Pinterest Told Me To was even a thought in my head), and I’m happy to now call you all friends!
Thanks to my personal stylist,
today I’m blogging yet another outfit I wouldn’t have put together on my own.
These look perfect, and they are on SUPER sale – an additional 30% off the sale price!
And if you don’t like lilac, there are several other color options.
I really like the “pistachio” color also.
A pair from GAP HERE on sale!
Turquoise Bag| Fossil HERE (not at all similar to the pic)
The left one is my absolute FAVORITE (I cannot imagine an outfit that it wouldn’t go with!), and the middle one comes in 5 different color combinations.
Click on the pic for information.
The shoes in the inspiration picture are great (love the neon- HUGE trend right now), and I have lots of great NEON and brightly colored options for you in both flat and wedge options.
I think THESE are a very reasonable option.
They come in 6 different colors (pictured below – not sure why I can’t get the picture to rotate) and they are AWESOME. They seem like the perfect little summer shoe to me. I LOVE the bright color choices, and I also LOVE the little bit of glam with the gold on the strap.
Click HERE to see all of the colors up close.
THIS shoe is another option. I actually think this might be the exact shoe in the inspiration picture.
It comes in lots of different color options too, but several color choices have
only limited sizes available.
AND….if you want to rock a neon sandal…but you would rather have a wedge, check out these!
The middle one is just a wedge version of the ones highlighted above.
Click on the pic if interested.
I tried on the far left sandal last week and I LOVED it. (That’s me below trying it on.)
It is a pretty tall wege, but crazy comfortable. I feel like it would be very versatile.
And for the record, I don’t think the above picture does it justice. It is much younger and modern than it appears (see below).
Casual enough to throw on with cut off jean shorts and a t-shirt…
or the patent makes it dressy enough to go with a cute little sundress.
You can find the below wedges HERE, and they come in lots of great bright colors (as well as neutrals). There are 49 reviews of them..and 39 of them are 5 stars!
I saw this shoe originally at the Nordstrom
store. I bought them in black, white and yellow. I was so excited to
see this show in Aqua and ordered it on line. I have 4 pairs of these
and LOVE Them. I can wear them all day and my feet do not hurt. I am a
91/2 and I bought a 10. So if you are half size, make sure you go up to
the next size.
I get lots of compliments on these shoes.
I went to the Nordstrom in Dallas and saw
that these were a great value. I tried them on and they felt so
comfortable and cute that I bought two pairs in white and red. It was a
great find. I’ll be wearing these all summer since they’re so easy to
match any outfit with. They’re so comfortable, it felt like I was
walking on air.
REMEMBER THE REVIEWS SAY THAT IF YOU ARE A 1/2 SIZE TO ORDER A SIZE UP.
So, if you are normally a 6 1/2, order the 7!
So, what do you think?
I think it’s time we jump on the neon shoe bandwagon.
I’m going for the wedges, what about you?
And make sure you check out the sales before you go. I just updated them 04/17 a.m.
We are talking as much as 35% and 40% off!
Click HERE to shop LOFT. If you are a cardholder, it’s 40% off of everything through 04/21.
That is HUTE.
There is also a Nordstrom Spring Sale that started last night!
After you click HERE, type “spring sale” in the search bar in the upper right hand corner
Then, on the left sidebar, you can scroll through more specific
categories such as “women’s apparel, men’s shoes, junior’s, or kid’s
LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of great spring stuff on sale!
But I know this about Nordstrom sales…..great deals tend to fly off the shelves, so if you love something…..get it!
If it doesn’t work, you can always return it. Nordstrom is great about returns.
J Crew Factory is an extra 30% off of final sale items with the code GETMORE. Click HERE.
