As the holidays near, I feel so grateful to be able to hug my loved ones close … and to celebrate my baby’s very 1st Christmas. No presents can compare to the gifts I already have. It’s worth it to take a moment and remember this…
The last week has been crazy (I feel like I’m saying that a lot lately), but in a good way. Work is keeping me on my toes as is my soon-to-be toddler (meep! 1 year old on the 28th!).
But I did cross a big item of my to-do list — “Purchase new car.” Check! When it comes to bigger purchases, I am extremely decisive. I know what I want and after the main research / checks, I just go for it. It hasn’t served me wrong yet. Zach however likes to investigate…a lot. Luckily, we know a good deal when we see one and were able to purchase a newer version of my old car on Friday. It feels just like my old car. And it beats driving this around:
Yes that was my rental car for 3 whole days. Yeehaaa! That would be a pink Chevy Spark. I said it was my Moet & Chandon pink bubbly car. Ha!
Anyway, back to Shoes-Day Tuesday. A few weeks ago, we hit up the outlets in Gilroy and I bought a couple of pairs of shoes for work from Nine West. While these aren’t the most ‘fun’ shoes, they have already proven to be extremely functional. Two different outfits shown below:
I wore both outfits to work (the second much more casual than I’d normally wear). But the shoes worked with both I think.
They are the Nine West Outahereo (?) style. I tried googling to find a good pic (since the pic below is so horrible), but I can’t seem to find them. They are a size 7.5, with about a 3.5″ wedge and they are beyond comfy. I am so glad I purchased them. They are a dark taupe that can be taken as brown or grey — double win! I believe I purchased them for just under $60. A similar pair can be found on Zappos.
Do you have ‘just for work’ shoes or do yours cross over? Generally speaking I’d say most of my shoes are fair game any time, any where, but there are a few that are strictly fun
