I should have made a new years resolution to blog less, ha!!
Life is stressful right now. There's no tenants in our rental so we're paying 2 mortgages. But I know we're blessed to even have 2 properties and know plenty of others in worse situations than me, so I try not to complain.
I just don't blog :)
But I wanted to ask the internet how many pairs of shoes a person needs. I have never understood why anyone would need a shoe closet. It just boggles my mind. I can't understand that level of consumerism. So I'm going to talk about those of us who live in the real world. How many shoes do we need? I mean, we all know you only need one pair of shoes, but I'm talking about regular people who work and run and sometimes shovel snow. I finally sorted through mine and I'm proud to say I now only have 8! And I think that still sounds like too many, but I'll break it down for you.
I have 1 pair of the following:
black flip flops
brown "fun" shoes/dress sandals
white dress shoes
black dress shoes (actually, I need to go buy a pair of these, but I'm going to include them anyway)
I know I could whittle that down more. Right?
I need to have a talk with myself about soccer. 2 years ago I had a significant concussion and sprained (broke? it still hurts) my knee. I'm 30. While that isn't old, it isn't 20 and I still try to play like I'm 20. Maybe it's time to let it go. My concussion affected me for over a year, that's nothing to play around with. I know Igloo would feel better if I never played again. But cleats are expensive and if I do play again I don't want to go buy a pair.
And do I really need 3 pairs of dress shoes? Can't I just decide if I'm going to have black, white, or brown as my accessory color of choice and buy clothes accordingly?? Is that really possible for a woman to do? It might be....
I know I sound extreme, but you have to draw a line somewhere, right? I really do believe that you have to mentally keep track of everything you own and that creates mental clutter. My brain is having a hard enough time! Would sticking to a color palate free me or limit me? That's something worth exploring.
One thing I have decided is that every woman needs one pair of awesome shoes.
Those are my brown open toed wedge shoes. Or at least they're very similar. They are the shoes I can wear on a bad day and then the day isn't so bad. I just feel awesome in them.
My friend has a pair of yellow dress shoes that I covet. They are the most fun pair of shoes I have ever seen. Do you have a pair like that? Do you have more than one?
