Hello everyone, it’s been a long time since either of us have written. Apologies, Melanie is in the final countdown to her wedding (it’s this Saturday!) and I’ve been busy with work. Which is not a good excuse, but it’s the only excuse I have 🙂
Monday, 4/16 – I love these grey boots. They’re a staple of my winter wardrobe, but I wanted to make sure they got a chance to shine in this 30-Day challenge (shh, don’t tell my other grey boots).
Tuesday, 4/17 – I’m not sure what drew me to these shoes, probably the kitten heel and suede-ish material. They make a really loud clicking when I walk, my boyfriend hates it, but it makes me feel like a grown up.
Wednesday, 4/18 – Remember when I told you I had an obsession with Converse? Well here’s another pair. These are probably my favorites, I can wear them with anything. And I do. The sad thing is, I didn’t even wear all of my Converse this month.
Thursday, 4/19 – These shoes have special meaning to me, they’re the shoes I was wearing over 4 years ago when I met my boyfriend. Honestly, that’s the only reason I still have them. They’re adorable, but they’re not that comfortable. And I just can’t bring myself to get rid of them.
Friday, 4/20 – I love these shoes. They make me feel sassy and tall. I mainly feel sassy because they give me an extra 5 inches. And they have little studs on them. So sassy.
Saturday, 4/21 – These shoes are really comfy and I’ve had them forever. They’re not cute, they’re not special, but they’re durable and have a pop of orange. So they’re okay in my book.
Sunday, 4/21 – Sadly, these shoes are no more. My little puppy decided they were a better chew toy than foot cover. Which makes me so sad, these shoes were so comfortable and I could wear them with anything. They’re black and brown, anything.
Monday 4/23 – Friday 4/27 – Okay, this is where it gets weird. I was out in LA for work the whole week and had to pack pretty light. So I just threw some sandals in my luggage and wore the shoes when they made sense. During the day I was wearing one pair, for client-dinner I was wearing another (I work in advertising, I can get away with dressing casually at client dinners). So I’m just throwing all the pictures up here since they don’t have a designated day. Also, it was cold and rainy in LA and packing so many sandals was not the best idea.
Saturday, 4/28 – Finally back in Austin! Melanie and I (and another friend) took a bike-riding class/tour of the city so I donned a pair of bright red tennis shoes.
Sunday, 4/29 – Okay, I know you think I’m cheating, but I didn’t wear shoes again. I was so glad to be home that I just cleaned house and stayed home. It was a lovely day, aside from all the cleaning.
Monday, 4/30 – The Grand Finale. I decided to wear a pair of fun red heels (can you tell it’s my favorite color?) to end on a high note.
And that concludes the 30 Day Shoes Challenge. The only thing I learned is that I have too many pairs of shoes. I didn’t even come close to wearing all of my shoes. Not. Even. Close. It made me realize I tend to gravitate towards the same few pairs of shoes all the time. And that I spend a lot of weekends barefoot.
Thanks for reading and looking at the shoes, it was a fun journey. And Mel and I will try to post more regularly. Although, it’ll be up to me while she’s honeymooning in Fiji (I’m a little jealous, but I’ll try not to let it show 🙂 )
