Thursday Threads | All About the Shoes

It’s Thursday vodka lovers and time for Thursday Threads!

With the Dallas summer in full swing, I’ve been finding as many ways to battle it each day. This week’s outfit features one of my favorite tops that I scored from Target. You’re probably wondering why it has been one of my favorite tops for the last three years. Well, I’ll tell you why – I can get away with not having to wear a bra.

To some women that seems like a travesty, but for me its a small victory. Any excuse to be free and let the girls out to play, I’m going to take that chance.

I’ve already bragged enough about scoring the perfect top that allows you to go sans bra, but the key is finding the right shirt. This tank has a neat ruffle that hides any type of cold breezes that you may catch along the way. Pairing it with my comfy straight leg jeans with a cuff was enough to jazz up the outfit for a night out with the man or ladies. The cuff served its purpose to showcase the highlight of this outfit the shoes!

Jordan of Darling Truly mentioned buying shoes from Payless and I remembered being young and never wanting to be seen in Payless shoes. You remember that saying “Payless shoes ain’t got no grip, trip on a rock and bust yo lip!” If you don’t know that saying it proves that I went to school with mean kids. After she bragged about a pair of shoes she purchased, I took a leap of faith and went to check out their website. First, they have EXTENDED SIZES! For a beauty with size 11 feet, this was huge for me. Next, they AREN’T orthopedic or stripper shoes! All too often when it comes to larger sizes they are typically catered to individuals who don’t want to wear cute shoes (think black, white, or tan shoes) or ridiculous stripper heels that I would break an ankle in.


Imagine my excitement when I came across the beautiful perforated tan heels! They were seriously a steal and some of the most comfortable heels that I’ve had the pleasure of wearing. Let’s just say that I’ve even had to run in them (not by choice, just by being a drunken mess) and no issues at all. Unfortunately, these are no longer available – but I did link similar ones above and you can always visit the Payless website.

What I love about this whole ensemble is that I can dress it up and down, while still managing to feel like the girl next door. That’s what my style is all about – embodying the all around Dallas woman.
