Adorable and Affordable Sandals Shoes for Spring and Summer - Target Sandals - SCsScoop.comClick this photo to shop my look!

Hi friends! Earlier this week, I made a Target run and stumbled across some adorable and affordable sandals that I just have to share with you! It’s a great time to stock up on sandals for spring and summer, especially because all of the ones I am sharing are currently on sale. They are but one, get one 50% off through Saturday night, April 20th at 11:59 PT. Even without the sale, all of the sandals I am sharing retail for $35 or less! Now, here are my top 10 favorites. Several of which I own and love!

The Scoop on Target’s Affordable Sandals

There are a lot of great things about Target, but if you don’t know – they have really great dupes! Their shoes look so similar and the quality has been great, in my experience. Now, I would not say it is high-end quality. They probably will not last as long as the higher end versions. But, if you are eyeing something trendy that probably won’t be popular in a couple years, then getting Target’s more affordable option is the way to go!

The strappy sandals above with a block heel are a Steve Madden-inspired, with less height in the heel. I own the Steve Madden sandal, so I tried on Target’s in-store ones to give you all a comparison. I was surprised. The Target dupe is great, and since I wore my Steve Madden pair all summer last year, I can say from experience you will love them with SO many outfits.

Also, I know the mules I shared are not technically sandals, but I am obsessed with the woven detail of them and just had to share. There are a couple pairs above that will look very familiar, if you saw my recap of what I wore in Cancun and what to wear on your next beach vacation. Both pairs I got have a nice amount of cushion, and I still can’t get over the prices.

Hopefully this recap helps you out if you are in the market for some new shoes to sport as the weather gets warmer. I would love to hear what pair you love the most and what sandals you wear the most during the summer.

Cheers!

Learning to Bloom Where You are Planted

Spring is in full force, and each year it makes me think about personal growth and change. This year in particular I have been reflecting about what it means to bloom where you are planted. To me, learning to bloom where you are planted means learning to come into your own, maintain confidence in who you and find peace with exactly where you are in the current season of life. Today, I want to share with you a few of my latest revelations in hopes that they encourage you to BLOOM!

What to do when you are not where you want to be.

Life is full of ups and downs, and often times God plants us in a place where, frankly we do not want to be planted! When I was fired a few years ago, I was really upset. It was not part of my plan. So what do we do in those situations, when we are pushed in a direction that we don’t want to go?

Stop asking, “Why me?”

Of course, I asked that initially! I felt very confused and blindsided in the moment. But now, in retrospect, there were signs that I missed. After a week or so, I learned to consciously stop focusing on a question I would never get the answer to. I had to learn to accept what happened, even if I was still upset about it.

Focus on the lessons.

Getting fired taught me a lot of things about my work ethic. Most importantly, it taught me that my work does not define me. It was a catalyst that allowed me to find confidence in my skills and to speak up when something was wrong.

I am a firm believer that life is full of lessons, and these lessons should be shared (hence this blog post!). Even when we are planted in a place we do not want to be, there are lessons to learn about ourselves and the people around us. We just have to look for them and open our eyes and hearts to fully understand them.

Don’t compare yourself to others.

We all know comparison is the thief of joy, but more important than that is remembering that we all have completely different lives. We are unique – through our circumstances, our personalities, our struggles, our weaknesses and our strengths. Some people may have one part of their life in full bloom, while the other part is in disarray. Comparing ourselves to others steals our time and kills our joy. There is no way we can truly bloom when we are comparing ourselves to others. It steals our time and kills our joy. But, if we focus on the good things within us and around us, then we can come into our own and reach a new level of confidence.

Look for a silver lining.

Sure, I was really upset for a couple days. But, I decided to focus on the good that could come out of the situation. I had time to think about what I wanted out of my career, and I had time to do a fun DIY project for our patio that I had continually put off. I took advantage of the time I had at home and I focused on my relationship with Will. For me, the silver lining was that being fired gave me the gift of time.

Now, I have to acknowledge that with some situations, it is much harder to find a silver lining or there appears to be no silver lining. Those are situations when the unthinkable happens, when it feels like we are incapable of ever blooming again.

I had a time in my life when I felt like that. It is something I plan to open up more about soon. But for now, I will say what got me through it was my determination to not have my life defined by that situation. It was not easy at first, but I focused on the good qualities within myself and the good things happening around me.

“Perhaps the reason you are drawn to flowers is not only for their outer beauty, but because they remind you: beautiful things will bloom after the longest seasons of waiting.” – Morgan Harpers Nichols

If you are struggling in the season of life you are in or feeling confused why part of your life is not blooming, do not beat yourself up. Find peace that you have been planted exactly where you are supposed to be. Remember you are strong. You are capable of blooming. And often times, the most beautiful blooms come after the heavies storms.

Cheers!

What to Wear on Your Next Beach Vacation

What to Wear on Your Next Beach Vacation - Beach Style - Beach Packing Tips - SCsScoop.com

A couple months ago, Will and I were over the winter weather and craving some time away from work, recharging in the sunlight. So, we booked a trip to Cancun at an all-inclusive resort. It was the beautiful, relaxing, much-needed break we needed, though we left wishing that we could have stayed another day or two! Right after the trip we went full steam ahead on our home remodel, and if you’ve followed any of the updates on Instagram, you know that it’s been adventure. Now that things are finally starting to calm down, I am sharing everything I packed for the trip! My hope is that this round-up will help you figure out what to what to wear on your next beach vacation. So, here is what I packed along with my outfits!

I don’t know about you, but I often over pack for beach trips. Maybe it’s because warm-weather clothes take up so little space. Whatever the reason, this was the first beach trip where I felt like I didn’t over pack and I had the right items with me.

We were in Cancun for five days and four nights, and I had an outfit for each evening and a few swimsuits to rotate. I love the blue and white, flowy maxi dress I found on Amazon. It was easily my favorite dinner outfit, and i still can’t believe it’s only $23! My favorite bathing suit has to be the smocked number, pictured above with my green twill shorts. It was such a cute suit and super flattering. I am sure I’ll be loving it for many years. The other piece I am obsessed with is my white, cutoff shorts. They have the best fit. If you’re in the market for a new pair this summer, I highly recommend them. 

I would love to hear how you pack for beach trips in particular. What are your go-to pieces to wear at the beach? Is there anything I wore that you have too? Let me know what you think in the comments.

Cheers!
