A Seriously Beautiful and Warm Day.

Of course it was windy… But still so lovely. The farmers’ fields are green!

It was so nice to be able to rush about without a jacket!

Top: Buckle (long time ago), Pants and Booties: Maurices, Necklace: Apricot Lane, Earrings: American Eagle; both a while back…

Again with the Stevie Nicks stuff! What can I say, this weather brings out the 70’s vibe and it is EVERYWHERE in stores! (HA! A Fleetwood Mac song!)

I can’t wait to pair these jeggings with a denim shirt! And I AM looking for a different colored tank for under the chiffon top…hmmmm…

I want to talk a little bit about the boots I’m wearing today!

In my search for comfortable, fashionable, professional clothing and footwear… footwear always falls short of expectations for me. And it seems like it’s only me!

Folks…TMI…True Story: I Have Bunions Edition.

This means I can’t wear tiny little shoes. Not every day anyway. As a Paraprofessional/someday teacher, Tom’s have really saved my life. My foot can spread out as wide as it needs. But Tom’s are not great for wanting to look a bit more dressed up. Boots work VERY nicely, but after wearing them most of the school year ’cause Kansas is cold y’all!…eh. Some comfort ballet flats work, for sure… Then comes in the desert boot wedge to just change the whole game! Wedges are great because they are easier on the foot than heels and these styles do not have a drastic heel, about 2 and 3/4 in.

I’ve been wearing mine for 4 days to test them out and day 1 and 2 were great. Day 3 I taught a 45 minute lesson, went grocery shopping at the end of the day, moved boxes at my aptartment for 30 minutes and with the general walking around my feet were pretty sore.

With that being said I still put them on for a 4th day and will for a 5th and yes my feet hurt, but not so much that I’m limping.

I think that these will make FANTASTIC every-other day shoes. I am also not used to wearing a heel! So I’m hoping part of this is just getting used to it, but I know for the health of my feet that rotating shoes is the best choice.

What I love most about these is the price! Knowing I want several colors and will be buying boots next fall and more Tom’s and flats I could NOT fathom spending $90 on 2 or more pairs. (Gotta have black and brown/neutral folks!) SO I was delighted when I slipped these on my feet at Maurices! For around $40 bucks you can have a VERY similar shoe. These are canvas, but I can imagine that they are very similar in quality/construction otherwise. And I can imagine that they will need replaced sooner than I would like, so I’m happy I found such a good price.

I have ALWAYS loved Maurice’s shoes. I still have three pairs of these darling pumps from 6 and 8 years ago!

So, teacher friends out there, what are you favorite cute comfy shoes to wear?

Tomorrow is Friday everybody! How ’bout that! Looking for another lovely day, and if you can, make it just a tad less windy for us! 😉
