Today’s Outfit: TJ Maxx Score Outfit #2

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Last week, I scored big at TJ Maxx. What would have cost me well over $1,500 in a department store with retail prices, only cost me around $200 at T.J.Maxx! That’s called being a Maxxinista!

One of my favorite things I purchased were these rust-colored skinny jeggings for $16. I think the brand is “True Love Jeans”. (Size small fits like a size 2/26) They are so comfy and stretchy!

Possible Outfit Example

Last Saturday I showed you 2 possible outfit combinations along with one outfit I actually wore that day. Well today, I’m wearing one of the “possible outfit combinations” I posted about on Saturday (see pic on right), minus the shoes.

I switched out the Report animal print studded ballet flats for my beloved Dansko Nat Lace-Up Leather Boots so many ankles wouldn’t be cold! I seriously love these boots… They are the bomb.

I know I look annoyed, but I promise it’s not the outfit that has me going! Trying to take pictures in a poorly lit room can be a bit…um… challenging.

Dansko Nat Lace-Up Leather Boots Review

We received the Dansko Nat lace up leather boots last month to review and we’re pretty smitten so far.

First impression is that they are very sturdy and supportive, like all Dansko footwear. I love the studs and cute design on the toe. Overall, these are a really stylish and classy choice for Fall.

If you are looking for a shorter boot to wear with your entire Fall wardrobe, these fit the bill. They have a convenient side zipper, adjustable elastic gusset on side and adjustable laces for a truly customized fit. The heel is solid and has great balance and they are very easy to walk in. If you are looking for a little bit of height, without compromising your footing, these are the perfect choice.

SIZING: I normally wear a size 7 – 7.5 in most shoes. In Dansko, I wear a size 38 which is equivalent to a 7.5 or 8. I find that sizing up works best with Dansko, especially if they are a style you can wear socks with.

COMFORT: If you purchase the right size, you will find Dansko shoes to be extremely comfortable. They have a molded footbed that conforms to your feet. I have never had a problem with Dansko footwear rubbing or requiring a break-in period.

SUPPORT: These boots, like most Dansko styles, have very good arch support. If you do not like arch support, these may not be a great choice for you. I would recommend trying them on in a store instead of purchasing them online. The tall boot shaft lends great support to weak ankles and is an excellent choice for someone who wouldn’t normally wear heels because of the fear of discomfort and inconvenience. You will have so much confidence while wearing these boots.

OVERALL: Overall, I would definitely recommend these boots, especially to Dansko fans who are familiar with the feel and fit of Dansko footwear. I love the stylish studs, the lace up detail and the cute design on the top of the toe area. These are really cute and quite versatile.

You can wear them with skinny jeans tucked in, skinny jeans rolled up, boot cut jeans, leggings, tights, skirts, dresses and even shorts! Check out our post How To Wear Dansko Nat Lace-Up Boots for more ideas on how to wear these boots.

Today’s Outfit: Dansko Pippa Clogs (NOT Crocs!)

Today I am wearing the latest addition to the Dansko family – the Pippa! An adorable clog that comes in six eye-popping colors (teal, yellow, orange, blue, black and magenta).

This updated version of the Dansko classic clog was inspired by high fashion’s molded footwear trend. The Pippa is a pop of color for any outfit.

These cool Spring clogs feature a molded foot bed that lends outstanding support, a secure tread, and a polyurethane insert to provide energy return, shock absorption, and flexibility making these clogs more comfortable than you can possible imagine. These really can be your go-to shoes for spring and summer. Whether you wear them to work or out to play, these clogs will not disappoint.

Enter to win a pair of Dansko Pippa clogs in our latest giveaway! Ends May 27th, 2012 at midnight. Click Here To Enter!

The thing I really love about these clogs (and all Dansko shoes) is the secure footing and dependable tread, which is really important to me as a mom, caring for young children. I need to know that I’m not going to fall head over heels while carrying a baby or a load of groceries! This momma gets a workout chasing around 2 kids and attempting to get work done so I am not in the time of my life where I can be running around into stilettos. So I am thankful for shoes like Dansko that still give me a stylish flair and yet are comfortable, durable, long wearing and dependable.

The Dansko Pippa is NOT, I repeat NOT a “Croc” in any way shape or form. Pippa is a stylish, expertly designed clog that will ensure comfort with every step. You will want one in every color, so you can wear them with every outfit all summer long!

Retail: $70-$115

Available At: Zappos.com ($80), Endless.com ($80), PlanetShoes.com ($80), TheWalkingCompany.com ($80), Nordstrom.com ($80), FootSmart.com ($80)

Dansko Pippa Clog Comfortable Shoes Giveaway

We are giving away a pair of super fun shoes that we know you’re gonna love! And even if you aren’t a “clogs” type of person, at least give me the chance to talk to you into liking these because I honestly think they are great!

The Dansko Pippa has over 30 five-star reviews on Zappos alone for being comfortable, true to size, great for Spring and Summer, fantastic colors, breathable, cool and keep your feet DRY unlike other ‘plastic’ shoes… The consensus seems to be that these clogs are NOT Crocs and don’t even compare! (Although everyone likes to compare them to Crocs…) They are cuter, more comfortable, provide support for your feet and keep your feet dry (no sweating!) all day.

Perfect for gardening and any other passive, non athletic outdoors activities, as well as anyone who is on their feet all day (cashier, grocery-bagger, nurses, doctors, maids, teachers, hairdressers, or similar). These provide excellent support (although not a lot of arch support), they are great for people with wide feet and they are super fun. I mean look at the colors these clogs come in! Blue, orange, magenta, yellow, teal! Don’t worry they are also available in black for those of you too afraid of COLOR!!!!!

ONE lucky winner will receive a pair of Dansko Pippa clogs worth $80 in her choice of color and size (depending on availability) AND a bonus FREE Dansko Tote bag worth $20!
