I posted a question on Facebook a few weeks ago asking what shoes will work with skirts that I can use for walking the kids to school, grocery shopping etc? My requirements are: comfort, look nice with both long skirts and short, and won’t make me look like Mary Poppins. Now I’m sure you’ve noticed that flip flops are my general shoe of choice, but now that summer is changing to fall and I’m walking Francesca about a mile and a half round-trip to school (and I’m pushing the other two in the double stroller), I needed something close toe and a little more suited to my daily activities.
This question sent a flurry of responses on the topic with recommendations for boots, mules, clogs, flats etc… I’ve definitely looked into all of these (I’ve looked at pages and pages of online shoes), and even found another pair of boots at the thrift store that I think will work well when the weather starts getting really cold, but still I wasn’t finding That Perfect Shoe.
And then…I did!
Sonja called this weekend and asked if I was free to go to REI and it just so happens I was, so off we went. She went looking for climbing hooks and I went looking for shoes and don’t you know these little beauties were patiently waiting for me.
Comfortable, lightweight, not clunky, and Perfect for walking! I’m a happy gal!
Another little fun-find this week was a copy of Don Aslett’s Is There Life After Housework? for only .50 at the library! I’ve checked out this book before, but I’m glad I was able to snag my own copy.
Have a wonderful day!
