What Do Your Shoes Say About You

What do your shoes Really say about you?  

Stripper Shoes Aren't Just for Painting

Today I am going to let you in on a little secret...I love shoes....shoes with high heels {think stripper shoes ~ for you DIYers these are not the shoes you wear when stripping furniture}.

You thought that was the secret, didn't you? Nope, it's not.

The secret is that my love for shoes is misleading.  I have so many gorgeous shoes...shoes that only see the light of day when I'm not fighting the battle of the bulge {right now it's not a battle...I have given in and I am embracing the bulge with both hands}.

I have shoes in boxes.  Shoes that have never left their cardboard homes.  Shoes that sit up on a high shelf in my closet begging to be released from their tomb but there they sit, day after day, season after season.

Here are two pairs of my most recent acquisitions ~ both high heeled {not quite stripper high...I mean, I am a mom...and a wife...and...well, I don't want to fall off them and break a hip}.  These sometimes get some wear action...rarely.

When I want to go for the sorta cute yet still comfy factor, I wear either of these pairs.

When I totally give in and basically just don't care {please tell me I'm not the only one that does this} I wear these beauties with stretch jeans ~ yep...they look like I work the night shift at a factory and then get in the car and head on over to volunteer at an old folk's home, don't they?  {No offense to you if you do work the nightshift at a factory.  I know you work hard and you need to wear comfortable shoes}.  I have no excuse for wearing these except that they fit, they're comfortable, andI don't fall off of them.

For belly laughs, videos {really funny true-to-life not perfect mom videos} and other cool Mom stuff wait until the kiddos are all tucked in tonight and head on over to NickMom.com.  I could spend hours over there just having me-time fun.  I thought this video {compost parenting} was hilarious ~ it made me feel so much better about me and my way of mothering ~ you know, the "imperfect but I can laugh at myself" style.  NickMom MotherFunny has so many more videos, Night-Cap Stand-Up {my favorites}, photos, LOLS and games.  You are so going to thank me for this....we'll probably be BFF now that I've shared this info with you.  We can even go shopping together if we both wear our comfy shoes...we need to be practical like that.

  1. LOL Too funny! I love little 'quizzes' like this. I also love the really high heels and I will wear a pair on occasion. I must be some kind of crazy mash-up, though, because I probably own at least 6 of those types of shoes. My favorite kind of shoes these days are boots, more for utilitarian purposes than comfort or fashion, though. Since they don't mention boots at all, I wonder if that means boots are 'so yesterday' or if they were too intimidating to poke fun at... Hmmm... *chuckle* Great post!

    As long as the rear end of that jogging suit says Juicy or Pink you could definitely audition to be a friend. Wait, is your butt big enough??

  3. Maryann @ Domestically Speaking says:

    That shoe chart is hilarious!

  4. That is hysterical! I used to wear heels all the time because I'm so short, but now I wear flats 90% of the time. I think my shoes say cute, but comfortable 😉

  5. Laura @ Finding Home says:

    Love that chart - shoes make all the difference in your day!

  6. Cheryl @ That's What Che Said... says:

  7. Bonnie @ Uncommon Designs says:

    Giggle! Love the shoe chart...I need to branch out from my flip flops!

    I used to love shoes but I've become so lame in my shoe choices. Love those cute tennies though!

    Those white sneakers are really, really funny and you describe them perfectly. 🙂 I have a pair like that too but mine are black and teal. I need to find something else to be a go-to shoe for me. Although I'm typically in a pair of flip flops, as the weather becomes increasingly more cold, I need something a little more . . . toasty. The little tennis shoes are REALLY cute! I should consider getting a pair of those while mini floral is still in!
