It’s hardwired in lots of women’s psyche to have a ‘thing’ for shoes, isn’t it? I don’t think I’m so into them as my husband would have people believe, I probably have around 30 pairs as opposed to the 50+ pairs a shoe fanatic might. Is 30 a lot? I’m not even sure.
It’s tough to buy shoes when you’re a parent. Here are two of my summer favorites that I pretty much never wear anymore:
The beaten up ones on the right used to be my absolute go-to going out shoes; faux-snakeskin and generic cialis usa from Reiss, they are beautiful. Their condition probably speaks volumes about how many excellent good nights out they’ve accompanied me on and ever since I hit 20 weeks of pregnancy my feet have been too swollen to wear them anymore. The ones to the left are KG by Kurt Geiger and I wore them recently for a wedding. It hurt, but I looked good. Which is what counts, right?
My current lifestyle of http://howdoesthemovieend.com/best-online-levitra cooking, childminding and working from home doesn’t so much require fancy shoes, I don’t see myself trotting off to very good site Fashion Week this year, but it’s always nice to have something in case of any last-minute invitation to meet Cheryl Cole. Or something.
Wedges are a much more practical shoe when you’re a mother. Although there is always the http://rumahkayu.info/viagra-effects risk of toppling off them (it’s happened. It hurt) they are much easier to walk in. I have been looking for my perfect wedge shoe this whole summer (by which I mean I checked ASOS, Net-a-Porter, Reiss and TopShop before feeling bored and defeated) and came up with zilch. But then I saw this post about wedges on LibertyLondonGirl and fell in shoe love with a Comptoir des Cotonniers pair she bought in Spain. There are no Comptoir des Cotonniers boutiques local to me but last weekend I visited Nottingham and skelfsborg.com knew I would be having lunch in the vicinity of a CdC. I wasn’t holding my breath but there they were – the final pair of tan and brown wedges, in size 5 and marked down from £170 to £85 – it was shoe fate.
Aren’t they beauties?! Comfortable and sensible(ish), they will serve me for that date with Chezza, the wedding I’m going to next month or I might even go all out and wear them shopping next week. I know, WOAH.
They’re not glamorous, but at least they ain’t Crocs (of which I absolutely don’t own a pair. Ahem).
