Little black boots

I wore my favorite boots today. Warm, Cozy--when I'm not twisting my ankle up a hill, and Stylin'(hehehe).

In this way, I am the stereotype female...I love shoes. I love seeing them stacked up in my closet, just waiting to be plucked for a day out. Buying them is even more fun.

Green, black, brown, blue, white, beaded, laced. They have such character.

Most days, I wear my boring Sketchers, but today I wanted something more suited for a test (I always get dressed up for tests--it makes me feel a bit more up to the challenge)--more 'me'.

It is amazing how one little pair of black boots can make you feel more comfortable in your own skin.

While walking up the stairs, whispering 'I am not going to get sick', and 'I am going to do well on this test' I squinched my feet in my shoes. Then realized, they were protected from the cold by the nice warm socks-a matching pair-and the boots.

It made me think--we are all protected from whatever is sent at us--a sickness, death, academic failure--whatever. We can always get back up and try once, or fifty thousand times more.

As the owner of 47 pairs of shoes, I clearly sympathize. But sometimes I wish people would stop me. I own a pair of very red sneakers. Is that really necessary?

Absolutely. Everyone needs some very red sneakers. I did have a pair when I was younger, but good for you for indulging in your love of shoes.

It is addicting, isn't it?

hmm, I've only recently been able to say that I have a functioning collection of shoes. Until my feet stopped growing, I couldn't keep a pair for more than about 2 months. Now it's the difficulty of finding shoes that fit. I am 6'0" tall, and wear a perfect 10 and 1/2. No one makes 10 and 1/2. NO ONE. I found a pair of cute white Nikes with a silver swoosh (that I wear nearly everyday because they're so great) at the outlets in Lancaster, but my particular size is RARE.

Usually, I have to settle for blister-rearing 10s or 11s. *ugh* But I, like any other female, adore shoes, and harbor an undying passion for multiple pairs in various colors.

*ask me about my pageant shoes :) mwhaha!

Surprisingly, I don't own a ton of shoes, just ones that I need. I own one pair of tennis shoes (Adidas shoes are the most comfortable in the world), a few pairs of sandals, and a few pairs of thick heeled shoes. If I were to have one million dollars and go on a shopping spree, a few more pairs of shoes wouldn't hurt. ;)

I sympathize with Karissa and her size-finding problem. I'm a minute 5'2'' (with shoes on), and have to try to find a size 3 in kids in most sneakers. I can get away with a womens 5 in dress shoes, but sneakers just are too huge. I get excited just to find sneakers without glitter and butterflies on them :-)

I love shoes! I love shopping! I have a serious problem of buying things I don't need, and shoes often fall in that category.

As far as size goes, I wear a 7--the same as about 75% of women out there so whenever I want certain shoes they are normally out of my size.

I always feel like I need more shoes even though I honestly have so many I can't even count them all. For instance, I always am thinking I need just one more pair of black shoes. Do I really?NO, I just tell myself I do.

Oh shoes, and shopping for that matter, how fun! I love it all and I love being a girl!

I got a new pair of shoes this weekend (they're for the pageant) and they are 9 and 1/2 s. They have 4 and 1/2 stilleto heels, and are clear, so it looks like I don't have shoes on--how cool is that?!

Just thought I'd update on the newest addition to my collection :)
