Weekend finds: A day in Orlando

The hubby and I decided to take a little road trip to Orlando this past Saturday.  The original plan was to go to Sea World, but due to this sweltering heat, I was not up for walking around and sweating (lol).  Maybe next time when it's a little bit cooler.  We ended up having lunch and doing a little shopping instead.
I stopped to one of my favorite shoe stores in Orlando- a cheapalista's shoe paradise, Shoe Land!  I ended up buying a pair of Steve Madden "Sanzo" inspired sandals for $19.99, and a pair of medallion gladiator sandals for $16.99.



Of course, I had to stop in Dots to see what new goodies that they had in.  There were tons of maxi dresses  and all of them were either strapless or had spaghetti straps.  Total no no's for me.  I did, however, find two cute dresses on the clearance rack.

black & white dress $9.  I'm going to belt it to give it some shape.  I adore the print and it's very comfortable.;  floral shirtdress/tunic $7.  I may wear this with a pair of leggings because it's too short to wear as a dress.

I also found some cute jewelry.  Is it me or has the price on Dots' jewelry gone up a bit?  I remember when their necklaces used to be $5, but now they're like $8-$10.  I still love the selection, though.  Such fab accessories!



chunky coin necklace $8; earrings $5 and hair clips $3; chunky disc necklace $8

The black and white dress and coin necklace are fantastic finds! And kudos for you and your husband for going shopping instead of sauntering around Sea World. I'm so not a fan. My sister and her family suckered me into Sea World last year. They were supposed to drop me off at an internet cafe but we somehow ended up in the 20 lanes leading up to Sea World. lol
