On Saturday morning, I woke up and realized I was running really ahead of the game and that I didn’t have much to do before my partay. I ran to the grocery store in the morning, prepped some of the dishes, and had the table set early. There were hours before I had to get ready, so I decided to step out and run to Off Broadway to look for some ankle boots. I’d noticed the night before that mine needed to be tossed and with cooler temps coming (or so I thought, WHY ARE YOU SO DAMN HOT, SOCAL?), I wanted to be prepared.
I walked in and found a pair on sale that fit and looked great within minutes. IMPULSE SHOPPING FTW!
I also found another cute pair of flats that caught my eye. I’m not really a shoe fiend and tend to buy shoes that I can wear versatilely, but these were just too cute to pass by. And I knew they’d match the dress I had planned to wear, so I snatched them up.
Before my guests arrived, I took a look at myself and realized I was pretty pulled together. I didn’t look like I was trying to hard, but I could tell I’d made an effort. I pushed myself out of my jeans and a top comfort zone and I liked what I saw. And because of these flippin cute shoes, I felt finished, too. I was proud of myself. And I liked that my shoes felt like they were made of pony. Yes, I realize I’m slightly odd.
Since Saturday, I’ve worn the shoes twice more.
Hey, I put some new shoes on,
And suddenly everything is right,
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on and everybody’s smiling,
It’s so inviting,
My friend Abby encourages us each Wednesday to “dress for the day you want to have, not the day that’s trying to have you.” I’m linking up with her, because with these shoes, I felt like the best version of myself on Saturday night! Also linking up with Lindsey for WIWW!
