One reason why I love the changing of seasons is because it's a fantastic reason to update my shoe collection.
I am a total baby about my feet in that they need to be completely comfortable at all times. And I mean, at all times.
This inevitably means that I end up spending a lot of coin on shoes. I actually don't mind...it's one of those things that I'd rather save for and get the right pair that is gorgeous and comfy than...er, not getting the right pair that are gorgeous and comfy.
This weekend I was in Connecticut for my bff's bachelorette party and just as any girly party should include, we went shoe shopping!
I instantly made a beeline for and fell madly in love with these gorgeous gems by Miz Mooz. (And of course, now that I'm home with no ability to return the shoes, I find them on sale at Nordstrom. #FAIL).
I tried them on and they were not only leather and incredibly comfortable, but such a gorgeously green color that they reminded me of the Emerald City. And as the sales girl said,
'These are the kind of shoes that you buy outfits for, not the other way around.'
Well said, my new friend. Well said.
Of course I couldn't leave well enough alone and kinda sorta fell in love with these pretty - and slightly - just slightly - more practical black pair. Again the leather material made them super soft while the thicker heel made them incredibly comfortable.
Plus they are kinda hot, no?
Did I need both pairs?
I really was in desperate need of new summer shoes.
And I remembered that a wise woman once told me,
'Rachel, some people have like 300 pairs of shoes!'
So I was all like, yeah I really need to work on that. Thanks Mom!
So I took home both pairs of these amazing shoes. I cannot wait to break them out! As soon as the sun shows her face again, I'll be wearing them!
So that's my tale of 2 shoes. I may or may not have kept opening the boxes yesterday and making sounds like 'ooooh' and 'ahhhhh' and 'so pretty' while petting them.
Hope you have a great Monday! It's rainy and miserable in NYC today! :D
Questions of the Day:
Are you very specific about what goes on your feet?
Just call me baby!
Do you ever buy fun colors or do you stick to traditional neutrals?
I love having a mix of both!
