back to school with Shoe Carnival + $50 GC Giveaway

Thank you to Shoe Carnival for partnering with Unlikely Martha. With school on the horizon in just a few weeks this partnership is timely. I’ve been compensated for this post, my kids always needs shoes.

I’ve learned from years past the part of Summer where my kids are out of school moves extremely fast once July comes. Father time has once again pushed the speed up button and on August 1 my babies, equipped with their backpacks, lunchboxes, new school clothes and shoes will be walking back into the schoolhouse for another year of learning.  Back to school shopping is underway and you know it is always best to get the things you dread out of the way first.  Shoe shopping has already been tackled and to be honest Shoe Carnival had mercy on our budget.

As you can imagine, I’m a little flustered trying to get everything in order to include cleaning out closets and drawers taking inventory of what fits and what’s flooding so that I spend wisely when purchasing new school gear. Shoes are always at the height of the back to school priority list, and are the items that I dread shopping for hands down. Outfitting two kids with shoes that are affordable and durable stresses me out.  The sheer cost of purchasing multiple pairs of shoes for more than one child is mind-blowing, especially since my son has moved out of children’s sizes into adult.

Shoe Carnival came through with discounts that allowed me to get FOUR pair of shoes for about $150. Who doesn’t love saving money? I’ll wait.

In addition, Addison spun the discount wheel and got her Mama an additional $4 off our total purchase. Thanks boo!

Ironically both children opted for the classic Chuck Taylor’s.

One of Addi’s best friends came over a few weeks ago with high top Chuck Taylor’s and she had been asking for a pair ever since. She spotted a pair she wanted and within minutes had them tried on and in the buy pile.

I added on these double tongue Chuck Taylor’s because I loved them. I just hope they stay white until at least September, or maybe she’ll only wear them on rainy days with no chance of outside play.

My son, has become a little high maintenance. I can no longer say this is what you are getting without some kind of kickback. He finally decided on these high top white leather Chuck Taylor’s

…and with a little coercion he agreed to a low top Gray Converse. Glad to say I can wear both pair, thanks son for taking one for the team.

    Chucks are favorite here too! I normally grab Sav a pink and purple pair. This year I think I’ll swap out the purple for a navy blue pair. I didn’t know Shoe Carnival carried Chucks! I’ll have to remember them when we go shop next month.

    The hubby has the same all white high-top leather ones and some “Kappa” red ones, I guess me and Victoria should get on board!

    We love Chucks at my house, too. My daughter has the black high-tops like the red ones you’ve shared and now she wants the red ones for school! For sure we will be heading to Shoe Carnival in the upcoming weeks to get the shoe part marked off the back to school list, too. Thank you for sharing this giveaway.
