Weekending Plus Tieks Ballet Flats Giveaway!!

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Happy Monday!  Seriously can’t we have one more day?  Especially since my Saturday didn’t really count because I was working out for 5 hours straight?  I can’t wait to teach class tonight and tomorrow that’s all I have to say.  Linking up with my girl Biana for her weekending linkup!
Quick recap and then we can get to the exciting stuff right?
1//Obsessed with this Revlon Matte Bright Color from this post (also love how those mirror Ray Bans don’t lie).
2//Fun Summer Outfit
3//Friday Night Pizza and Wine
4//Major Scores at Dillard’s Sale
5//Bright Pop of Red Pencil Skirt
Now off to the good stuff!  If you remember from this post I finally took the plunge and scooped up some Tieks Ballet flats. They live up to all the hype.  I seriously have not taken them off my feet since I got them.  They are so comfortable and basically mold to your feet.  The turquoise sneaker like bottom is cushioned and gives great support.  The flats fold up so you can carry them in your purse if you want to switch from those uncomfortable heels.
You know how I feel about customer support (which is fabulous btw).  They come with a handwritten note and an adorable turquoise carrying bag.  They also have free shipping and returns.  Look at these sweet pics by my new photographer ;-)  
I told him my the pics were of my feet and they needed to be hanging. Look who got all creative right?  Totally his idea.  
Also because y’all know I like to give you all the detais…..here are the “behind the scenes” of this glamorous Sunday afternoon photo shoot courteous of my smart photog.
Yes you are correct that me sitting on the back of a tailgate.  Naturally the minute we started taking pictures 10 people started driving by.  This photo also proves this ecard perfectly…
Moving right into it.  So I couldn’t think of a better giveaway than this one with all these amazing ladies!  Please check their pages and follow them along they are my daily reads and soon to be yours! Hint my entries are Bloglovin, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

    Girl – that top with the bright pencil skirt. Where did you get it?! Obsessed. And now I’m obsessed with Tieks.

  2. July 28, 2014 / 5:21 AM

    Hmmm either tan or black! Sigh, so boring but practical. I have to walk to my office from the BART train so I ALWAYS need a flat before I switch into my pumps.

    I love your Dillard finds! We don’t have a Dillard at the major malls near me, so when I am in Atlanta…I try to make it a point to stop! I used to STOCK UP from there when I was in college.

    Those shoes are totally cute and I might need them in my life if they are comfy like you say!

    You SCORED at Dillard’s! I’m so jealous! Love that black and white striped dress you picked up.
    Is it sad that this is the first time I’ve heard about Tieks?? But they’re so cute and I love all the colors they come in! Good buy girl!

  33. July 28, 2014 / 8:24 PM

    I’ve said it once but I’ll say it again – that aztec/red outfit is killer! I need to find myself some more printed tops, that one would go with everything. The pewter/charcoal coloured Tieks are already on my wish list for Christmas haha.

  34. July 28, 2014 / 10:46 PM

    That outfit in your last picture is so adorable!

  35. July 29, 2014 / 1:00 AM
