I know so many women who are shoe women. My sister is one. When it comes to shoes, I can tell you what I think is pretty. I have a pinboard devoted to shoes. I can tell you what looks good with an outfit. I have a pinboard devoted to pairing pretty shoes with pretty clothes. Scarily enough, I can even name shoe designers. I thank my sister for that one. Insanely, I have managed to amass quite the collection of shoes, and I don't wear half of them. I get the attraction to shoes. I understand a woman's obsession with shoes. But, I personally don't have a love affair with them. I can blame that on my mom, she ran around barefoot or in flip flops the majority of my childhood, until she became a nurse and then it was nurse's shoes. I grew up loving to be barefoot. Getting me to put on a pair of shoes was a struggle. And my shoes never stayed on long, the moment I could take them off they were gone. Boots are a different story. I feel sturdy in boots. I like the support boots provide me. I feel confident in boots. That is why boots are going to be a recurring them in this blog, as you will soon come discover.
