My grandmother loves shoes (and handbags); my mother does too. So when I see my closet full of shoe boxes and purses, I blame my genes. What can I say? Spending tons of money on shoes is in my blood! 😉
I’m also very picky about the shoes I purchase. The shoes have to speak to me if I’m spending my hard-earned coins on them. I tend to go for higher heels–the higher the heel, the closer to God (in my opinion). If I wear flats, I want them to be stylish. Want proof? These are just a few pairs from my collection:
So imagine my shock when I walked out of a shoe store with these babies:
Definitely a departure from my usual style, but with good reason. My mom and I are taking a trip to Costa Rica in the fall (!!!) and I needed something that would take me from the jungle to the beach and back again. After some research (online and talking with friends who’ve hiked a million more miles than I ever will) I decided on the Chacos.
Honestly, they are pretty comfortable. And they are kinda cute when you put them on too! I promise y’all, the intent of this post isn’t to brag about my shoe collection. It’s to brag about how super #adult I felt buying them. I’m almost 30, y’all. I need to cast away childish things. I need to quit focusing on how I look and focus more on how I feel. Because the shoes don’t make the woman–the woman makes the shoes. And I’m making these Chacos fabulous, henny!
So whether I’m hiking the jungle or walking the runway…

You know Kaydence wanted a pair of those sandals and I told her. I would buy the stuff and I thought her Papaw Bobby could make her a pair. Lol Too expensive for a pair of sandals. Lol
😂😂😂 I agree–they are expensive! Especially since her feet are probably still growing. If her papaw ends up making her some, let me know–I’ll take mine right back to the store!
You are a lady after my own heart. I adore shoes and I adore matching them with my outfits. It could watch my dress, cardigan, jewelry, whatever! Just make them tall, pretty, and matchy-matchy. ❤
More shoe photos are always welcome. 😀
I’d love to see some of your collection!
I am all about sharing! I just need to make certain that I remember to take photos… Hold me to it! 😉
