these shoes...

happy day -my shoes
jeans in technicolour
polka dots & shoes

I've been wearing these shoes a lot lately. I admit that I've ignored the fact that they squish my big toe just a little bit because I love them so. They're one of the pairs of fun shoes I thrifted a while back; brand new, never before worn. LOVE those finds! So, I've been wearing them lots & lots in hopes the leather will stretch around my big toe, so they no longer squish.
They go with everything, which is a rare find. A dark navy colour with pretty inserts of tan & burgundy-brown. T-straps make me swoon. Bonus points for them having the slightest of wedge heel and being made to walk (and skip & even run a little!) in comfort.

I get excited when I find a comfortable shoe. A comfortable shoe that's kinda cute is just plain crazy-talk. And I like crazy-talk!
I'll never be the girl in pretty little heels, and that's just fine.
with joy,

  2. Lovely shoes to find in a thrift. Wish I could wear such shoes myself!

  3. As I said the other day when I spotted you... I LOVE THESE!!!!!!!!


    I'm the same when it comes to shoes. Give me a cute flat any day over a pretty heel! And thrifting new shoes in your size… that is the best feeling ever!

  5. I love your shoes ... and like you, I'm never going to be a girl that wears heels. I am and shall always be a lover of adorable flats (and of course comfort). :)

  6. *envy* I love love love these shoes! I so rarely find great shoes at the thrift stores that will fit my boat-sized feet. I found some sandals this weekend.... but that's besides the point. These shoes are just too lovely!

  7. T straps make me swoon too... something about wearing them feels so familiar. Hope they stretch just right wear you need them to.


hello! Thank you for taking the time to say a little something; I do appreciate reading your thoughts & ideas. ♥
