Shopping Spree

I've been having some foot problems recently, most likely brought on by the hours of standing I do each night at work in my Wal Mart dress shoes. And so I set out yesterday to find a simple pair of black flats with lots of sole, preferably ones that didn't click when I walk on the tile. (I prefer to be stealthy)

I'll admit it - I don't really think that either pair is 100% sensible. What you can't tell from the picture is that both pairs are slides. Yes, they're 'legal' within the dress code, but I'm still not sure how much walking I can do in them. I do, however, think that they are both fabulous!

The pair on the left are like mary janes, with a strap across the top. They also have a funky rubber sole that looks a little like a golf shoe (only not...). And they were on clearance for $25. The pair on the right look like they'd hurt, but the tops are stretchy. This is the closest you'll ever see to a pointy toe shoe in my wardrobe. And they look awfully cute with jeans! They do have a bit of a lift to them, which will probably limit the amount of time I can spend in them over the course of a day.

Scott also indulged me with a trip to the Old Navy outlet in the same shopping center. I came out with two plain t-shirts (kelly green and white) and two spaghetti strap tanks (for layering/sleeping) for less than $20.

And then we went grocery shopping.

And then we came home.

And tonight we're going to Hoop Dee Doo. All is right with the world.

I like both shoes, and maybe if you switch off, they won't get to you as quickly. And also, thank you for not wearing the pointy things! What they heck are THEY all about? Killing roaches in the corner?

***** Any chance you remember the kelly green golf shirt you used to wear with white shorts? You were probably in Alphabetland when you wore it, but it was one of my all time favorites. Kelly green looks good on you. *****

How was HOOP (that's insider talk)?

I really like the pair on the right. They're cute and they look like they won't pinch your toes at all. I hate pinched toes. When your feet feel bad it's really hard to have a good attitude.
