My daughter has reached the age where she fits into most of my clothing, which is a day I’ve dreaded for a long time. I hate letting people borrow my clothes, especially a teenage girl that thinks its cute to “improve” her (and my) clothing by cropping tops, ripping jeans and drawing on her shoes with permanent marker.
One thing that we can’t share – even if we wanted to – are our shoes. I am a size 7 and she is a size 8, so whatever shoes I buy for myself, I get to keep all for myself! Which is fantastic, because I am a bit of a shoe fiend…but aren’t most women?
I love the way a pair of shoes can completely change an outfit. Skinny jeans and a simple shirt are completely casual when paired with sneakers or sandals, but slip on a pair of heels and you’re automatically considered “dressed up.”
And my favorite thing about shoes? No matter what I weigh, they always fit. When I gained 10 pounds the last time I quit smoking, none of my jeans fit me quite right, but all of my shoes still fit! I think that’s why shoes are so important to me; no matter what, they always fit and they the easiest way to spice up any wardrobe!
It’s about time to buy myself a new pair because Toby, our Sheltie puppy, recently went on a chewing rampage and destroyed my favorite pair of sneakers!
Luckily, I was able to find the exact same pair at Macy’s and they were on sale! Find out here.
Now, I just have to figure out howto keep them hidden so that my daughter doesn’t realize they are new and want a new pair herself…
