I look at our trip back to Ohio* in the summer as a time to reconnect with family and friends… and to refill my closet.
The truth of the matter is that I feel like I’ve been wearing the SAME SHOES SINCE 2006 since I live in a perpetually warm locale.
Literally. Same shoes. Different day. (Sandals and wedges for 10 months out of the year, ballet flats for 2 months. You can MAYBE squeeze in a pair of boots once or twice, but it’s hard to wear them without looking like a jerk. I mean, it’s hot here. And this is the land of cobblestone, heels are tough. Wedges are the way to go.)
But truth, I needed/wanted some new shoes.
Here are eight of the pairs of shoes I bought while I was there. (I bought a couple more, flip flops and sandals.)
Fit in my suitcase? No way. (Waiting for them to arrive as you read this…)
I literally LOVE these.
From Nordstrom’s. No idea the brand, but cute.
And these are ORANGE!
(It’s my signature color, you know…)
“…My colors are blush and bashful…”
“Her colors are pink and pink… can this wedding get any more precious, I ask you?”
“Pink is my signature color…”
$10 for whoever knows the movie that comes from. (I’ve seen it at least 799 times.)
Anywho, on sale (now) for only $54.99! Go. Move. Buy.
And Craig’s [least] favorite pair.
They’re crocs. All men hate crocs. But you guys, THEY’RE COMFORTABLE. (See here.)
I felt the little red numbers were fun. I bought them to go with this dress that I wore to Iris Took’s sister’s wedding.
(Here we are – I LOVE YOU, EEN. AHHHHhhhhh!)
I was IN LOVE with the whole outfit. I really was. (Ignore my bangs. Wind, I’m guessing?)
It was a BUBBLE DRESS with POCKETS from here.
I felt it was perfect for an outdoor wedding at a lake.
|The 3 of us felt we coordinated well. I’m married to the one on the left, sans jacket.|
Sometimes I cry because I live in Mexico and there’s no good shopping here.
*My photo-update of our trip is forthcoming. I have a lot of photos to wrangle.
