Okay, so it hasn’t technically been a full week since I started, but I have some free time now. But before I begin, I hope you’re having a lovely Easter weekend with family, friends or both.
Back to the subject at hand: SHOES!
Sunday, 4/1 – I went barefoot all day. It was a Sunday and I didn’t feel like leaving my house. Don’t judge, it was glorious.
Monday, 4/2 – I thought I would start strong (Sunday is a day to relax, this totally still counts as starting strong) and wear a nice bold shoe. Orange is one of my favorite colors and there’s just something about a colorful shoe that draws me in. I decided to finally break out a new dress I bought over the winter, a cute cream colored dress with a navy blue bicycle pattern paired with my bright orange flats. And when I say bright, I mean BRIGHT.
Tuesday, 4/3 – Since I have to manage
30 29 days of shoes, I don’t want to wear all of my favorites right off the bat (not that I don’t love these shoes, I love all my shoes). I need something to look forward to at the end of the month. I’m sure I’ll be dreaming of wearing those orange flats again by next week. But I digress. I decided to pull out an old (I mean OLD) pair of brown and orange Sauconys that I loved in college. I wore a pair of jeans and fun dinosaur t-shirt. I’m so lucky that I work in advertising and can wear what I want.
Wednesday, 4/4 – I decided to break out a new pair of shoes. Well, I’ve actually had them for a while and finally wore them on Wednesday (I’m beginning to sense a pattern here). They’re a pair of black patent flip flop heels. That’s probably not what they’re really called, but I feel like it’s a pretty good description. What did I wear on Wednesday? Oh yeah, I wore a black maxi dress with a cream colored lace top over it. That was new for me to wear a dress with a shirt over it, but I’m happy with how it turned out. I am not, however, happy with what those shoes did to my feet. They gave me MAJOR blisters. I’m not even sure if I’ll ever wear them again (but by the time I can wear them again, I’ll probably have forgotten about the blisters).
Thursday, 4/5 – Since my feet were in pain from the blister fiasco on Wednesday, I decided to wear a comfortable shoe. So I broke out a pair of Chucks that I haven’t worn in a while. They’re black and white pinstripes. I don’t know about you, but I. Love. Pinstripes. I matched them with a black and white striped cardigan, a grey tank top and a pair of jeans. Comfortable, yet stylin’.
Friday, 4/6 – Happy Good Friday, ladies and gentlemen. I decided I would dress myself up in a cute long green skirt and white t-shirt and offset that with a pair of coral open-toed flats. I’m all about cute and comfortable. And I knew I was going to need to be comfortable since I would be playing Scattegories with copy writers. What was I thinking playing a word game with wordsmiths?
And that rounds out my (work) week of shoes. The first week is easy, but I’m sure by Wednesday, I’ll be ready for a shoe repeat. I still haven’t worn my go-to plain black flats, I’m saving them for when I’m desperate.
I also want to alert you guys to a great cause (that will coincidentally lead me to not wear shoes again) the One Day Without Shoes Challenge. My office is participating and while I’m a little leery of being barefoot in the office, I’m happy to help a good cause. So Tuesday, April 10, 2012 – I will once again be barefoot. So make that 28 days of different shoes.
Also, I need a pedicure.
