Back in July I shared with you that Payless Shoe Stores had launched a military discount program to show their appreciation to our awesome troops. To show their appreciation even more Payless allowed me to check out a very fashionable pair of sandals from their summer line along with a cute little bucket hat.

I am a flip flop person period!

I wear them in the Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. My husband is always saying why can’t you just wear a nice pair of sandals, but I usually don’t budge. I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to show off a little foot action by rocking these blue and white naval color inspired ankle sandals. I wore them on a shopping trip 2 weeks ago in which I walked all day to several outlets and malls and they were super comfy. The sandals I received are blue and white with a rubber bottom so they are definitely non-slid for people like me people who tend to be clumsy and fall all the time. They also have a cute little tie embellishment to add some pizazz!

These sands retail for about $24.99 and because Payless is always having a cool sale plus our military discount , I am sure you will be able to save a few bucks.

As for the hat I have to admit I am not a hat person but I have worn them for those hot summer days when my hair just can’t take the humidity. Payless sent me what is known as a bucket hat to review. It’s perfect for the beach and this weekend it is going to be perfect for my theme park days. The hat retails for $14.99 and is by Minicci. This is the perfect hat to wear on a casual day with jeans or capri’s. It is perfect for a beach day as well.

70 Comments on Payless Shoes Stores: Shoe and Hat Review & Giveaway!

  1. If I win I would love to buy the Payless Women’s Komet Platform Pump
    Brash ($29.99 Reg. $34.99) in the silver sparkel color! My husband would DIE if I started wearing heals again since I stopped when I became a stay at home mom!

  2. I would choose the grey ballet flats. I personally love flats, because I am a tall girl, 5’9” to be exact, and its hard for someone my size to get away with heels without feeling like an amazon woman. For this reason, I maily live in flats and flip flops.

  3. First of all, I LOVE Payless! Right now I’m really digging the penny loafer pumps! They go way back, old school! I think I had a pair when I was 13 or 14, but I still love them. Would LOVE to have an updated version to wear.

  4. I would purchase the Women’s Crew 2.0 Court Athletic shoes. They look comfortable, and I love the white!

  5. I would get me a pair of Wedges. Those are my fav type of shoes and a girl can’t ever have enough of them lol Also I would get my Toddler a pair of boat shoes and for our little lady a pair of the golden bow flats :-)

    I liked and subscribed and am following both on Twitter

  6. Women’s Katey Bow Wedge shoes are so cute! I would definitely get them and rock them with a sexy top perfect for a date night : )

  7. OH MY WORD!!!!!!!! The Choices… I hate decisions like this… lol.. BUt I fell in love with the Komet Platform Pumps in Leopard. That red platform!!! OOOH BLISS right there. May just have to get those for myself this month instead of the flowers that the hubby “sends” me. lol

  8. Subscribed to your e-mail, like payless on twitter, liked you on twitter (i’m not a twitter person, so that’s a jump for me!), and loved payless on facebook :)
