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…
