You can say it: I have a shoe problem. I know. Everyone who knows me knows. This week I promised myself an “unsentimental shoe purge” and I came up with 3 pairs. 3 pairs out of — easily — 75? More? Some I wear more than others, some I haven’t worn in years, but shoes are that ONE item of clothing that will always, always come back around. I feel sick when I go to buy a pair of black knee-high boots and I think about the gorgeous black knee-high boots I had right after college that would be PERFECT. Why did I get rid of them??? Because the heel seemed clunky? Because the shaft start to feel like an awkward height? Why didn’t have the foresight to know: they will come back around?
So I have a shoe problem that extends beyond collecting to hoarding. But here’s a dirty secret: I also have a denim problem. When you are a mamma, it is easy to fall into a denim rut. When you are a Stylin’ Mamma, you keep trying to break out of the denim rut only to find yourself gravitating to stylin’ denim: High waisted! Floral print! Zip-leg!
I need to get a grip.
This summer I’m deep into my denim shorts. I’m wearing ’em sporty, and I’m wearing ’em chic. Playground? Nike Frees (yes, those again), durable watch, aves, and a perfect pullover. Writers’ meeting? Button up, jacket, flats, and headband (what can I say? I’m into them.).
Oh, and p.s.: I’m totally in love with these shoes.
What’s your problem?
