New shoes! New shoes! Friday I took off work because I felt dreadful and slept the majority of the day. Around 4pm I felt great... good enough to be a tad bit accomplished. I haven't had a professional pedicure since... well before Emerson was a year old so I headed to the nearby strip mall for a Starbucks iced coffee so I can enjoy it with a recent issue of Cosmo while I get my feet pretty and no longer looking as though they belong to Cody Lundin.
On the way to the nail salon from Starbucks, I walked passed Payless... and decided to go in. I rarely have success at Payless - I usually feel I am too old and in too professional/conservative of an office to carry off their shoes. But I figured they were having BOGO and maybe I could get some shoes for Emerson. The toddler shoes were atrocious - too many cartoon characters, bling and gender stereotypes but I was pleasantly surprised by the women's selection. The shoes above were on sale for $19.99, came in white, floral, denim, and black. The black came in wide width and these shoes are so comfortable! Seriously, they rival my high-end shoes for comfort. If they had the denim color in wide I would have nabbed those as well. Even though BOGO was going on, I left with just these shoes. Never buy just because it's a good deal; only buy if it's a good purchase!
Also the toes are a pretty orange-red - same color as my shantung skirt and LOFT knit dress. The women in the chairs on either side of me were trying to get me to get nail art or crystals but that's just not my style. I usually keep my toes pretty neutral, but I am totally loving on this color lately and had to take the tomato plunge!
