You may have noticed that the front entry has stripes now and there’s a wooden deer head on the wall and a new chair and a rusty, chunky, pallet word that says “FARM”….
….but can we discuss summer footwear for a moment?
I have to interrupt this regularly scheduled before and after to ask a very important question.
Have you seen the sandal selection this summer?
Enquiring minds want to know.
I just spent an afternoon shoe shopping and five stores, four frustrated hours and two tired feet later, I have come to the conclusion that there are only two basic sandal options this season.
Option 1: Completely flat shoes without a heel. Pretty. Basic. Comfortable.
But they are all FLLLLLLLAT.
Pros: There are days when I like flat. Flat gets you everywhere without your feet hurting. Flat says I’m comfortable. I’m here. I’m ready to party.
Cons: Flat makes you short. If you are five feet tall and you wear flat sandals, you know what that makes you?
Five feet tall.
Option 2: Skyscraper heels. Five inch heels with platform wedges. Six inch heels with cork and silver and extra personality.
Pros: Skyscraper heels are tall and pretty.
They are perfect for simply sitting and looking cute.
Cons: Not so great for walking.
I tried and failed.
So just between us…..what did 2015 do with all the medium heel sandals?
Where did they go?
Did all the shoe people get together and decide we all needed an un-medium shoe intervention?
Dear Mr. Shoemaker….here’s a suggestion:
1 1/2 inch heel.
Sparkly rhinestone on the front.
Sling back.. Black. Size 7.
I’ll click my flat sandals together and wish them to Kentucky.
PS: Oh….and I almost forgot.
Here’s the before…..
And here’s the after.
Happy shoe shopping.
