There is something you might not know about me, I never wear high heels. When I say never, it's really never! I can look back & count the many times I have worn high heels on one hand. I like to stay as low to the ground as much as possible & keep my toesies comfy. That said, on Valentines day, Shea & I had been walking around Northpark mall for awhile. Shea was wearing her super cute, strappy, very very high heels, & I was in my trusty orange suede TOMS. I could tell Shea was kind of hurting after 4 hours in her shoes & we were about to head home. So me being the absolutely great little sister I am, told her we should switch shoes & I would wear her heels. She looked at me in disbelief & said, "Okay!"
Let me just tell you that I didn't realize how high those heels actually were. I had to walk around the mall for 15 minutes holding onto my sister's arm, because I just knew that I was going to fall & end up eating the floor. I kept repeating in my head, "Little steps, little steps, little steps." I was in pain by the time we finally got to the parking lot. It felt like hot needles were poking the balls of my feet! I said, "That's it, I can't, I can't do it! I'm not a woman that wears heels!" I ripped those shoes off my feet & walked barefoot outside! Freedom! When we finally returned home I looked down at my feet & realized that I not only had one, but two, water blisters starring back at me on my toes! Unbelievable. And it was only 15minutes! How will I ever become a lady if I can't wear high heels?
So I have decided that I am going to become a shoe person. I will start to buy more shoes from thrift & resale stores mostly & try to work my way up to being able to wear heels. I have never really been a shoe person. I have my favorite shoes in my very very small collection & I think it's time that I add to it a little more. However, if I just end up buying flats, I'm okay with that. So I have already begun my search for ideas of the types of shoes I want to very soon purchase in this new journey of mine.
