I’m not one of those shoe-crazy women, but I do like to enjoy some cute shoes from time to time. I often tell Craig he is lucky that I pretty much only shop at DSW anymore, because at least my shoe purchases are affordable. I can’t believe how much some women spend on shoes!
Anyway, I’m in the market for some new summer sandals. I’m in good shape for dressier sandals that I wear to work or out with a nice outfit. I do like to wear heels but I’m learning that my knees are happier with flats. [Yes, I am getting old.] So, I am looking for flats. But not flip-flops; I don’t know why, but flip-flops hurt my feet. (I know, I’m strange.) I’m not looking for anything in the athletic/water sandal category (I already have those), and I’m not looking for something that a grandmother would wear. But when I went to the store the other day to look for cute yet flat non-flip-flop sandals, I came up empty-handed. Everything was either flip-flop, heels, athletic, or grandma style. Sigh.
If anyone has any suggestions on where I could find some good flat sandals, by the way, let me know!
Of course, I couldn’t exactly leave a shoe store empty-handed, now could I? So I ended up picking up these:
…which were great with my new dress. You may ignore the fact that I bought shoes for the dress back in March. That was in March when it was cold and gray. Now it is June and sunny and warm and something strappier and lighter in color was definitely needed. 🙂
While I was at the store, I also saw these. They were so heinous and unbelievable that I had to take a photo:
In case you’re wondering what you’re looking at, that’s a built-in canvas ankle-warmer (or whatever you’d call it!) attached to the sandal. The craziest thing is that I actually saw TWO different versions of this type of sandal there. Are people really wearing sandals like this? Yikes.
