I have been oogling the Kate Spade Keds for quite some time now.
There is one problem….I am cheap. If I pay a pretty penny for shoes that cute then they are going on a shelf, not on my feet. So I did what any cheap girl lusting after shoes does, I got another credit card.
Just kidding, I made my own. In my favorite colors. I stayed on the lookout for a cute (and cheap) pair of white shoes. Finally found a pair at Old Navy that were calling my name, in show tunes form. How can I resist that? Then I came home and got out Pantone’s color of the year paint, you may remember some handsome pots that got a makeover with the same paint. The hardest part was finding something to make the polka dots with. I ended up using a set of foam ear plugs that Tim keeps around so he can ignore my snoring. What as if I actually snore, c’mon.
After about twenty minutes of dotting, I busted out the gold paint pen and glitzed up the toes. Say ello to my new favorite shoes. I think they are fun and funky and perfect for all our summer shenanigans.
Even Asti approves. Have you ever made your own shoes? When I was in eigth grade I took sharpies to a white backless pair, they were my favorite shoes for at least two months.
I wrote on Chucks a lot in junior high/high school but I think that was out of boredom, not for style points. I love your new kicks! You are adorable my lovely lady.
See Janelle, we were cool way back when haha!!! Although I was never cool enough to have Chucks…I just had off brand Payless shoes to write on hahaha. Maybe I should redeem myself and buy some cute Chucks now 🙂
For sure! I think Chucks definitely go with your style.
Ok, sold! I am on the hunt 🙂
Super cute!! Can I get a pair? 🙂
Awwww THANKS!!! Heck yes, they are super easy to make haha
Where do you buy the pantone paint??? Love these – think I’ll make this a Wednesday craft activity with my three year old. He’ll love it!
They have little samples at Lowes in the paint section. If you can’t find them I am sure they would be happy to mix some up for you! It is a gorgeous color. Have fun, send over some pictures….I’d love to see what you do 🙂
Cute cute 🙂
Those are so cute I wanna rub my face on them! Weird, but true 😉 They came out soooo great! 🙂
Hahahaha….it’s ok I pet them on the daily 🙂
Thanks so much for all your sweetness!
