Shoes, glorious shoes!

This summer I was able to add several new pairs of shoes to my collection. :0) Strangely enough, I went for color. I normally tend to stick with neutral tones as I know they are more "practical" as they can be worn with most everything. But, I was needing something a bit more fun and so I went out on a limb. I'm so glad I did as I have had so much fun wearing them! :0) So, I figured I'd let you "enjoy" them as well....

For my birthday, my sister in law, Holly, bought me these two pairs of shoes. Hot Pink wedges and sassy ice blue heels. I think this is what started my "color revolution". She was worried I wouldn't like them because I haven't really owned too many "colored" shoes. I think I have a pair of pink heels and a pair of red heels and that about covered my color collection up until this summer. Crazy, huh? I have had so much fun with the blue heels. :0)

I bought these a short while later on a whim. The print is little flowers and they are so cute. I struggled over whether or not to buy them because of the pattern. I wasn't sure if I would be able to match them with outfits well. So far so good, though. It helps that I don't wear many patterned outfits. I'm a jeans and tshirt kind of girl {interesting that I love heels huh?} so, my canvas is usually one toned. :0)

I bought these two pairs of shoes while on vacation last week. I know....bright yellow and kelly green? What was I thinking? For some reason I have become more than slightly obsessed over the color green. Who'd have thunk it? I've been sold over brown for over a decade, so to all of a sudden turn to such a bright color is odd even for me. But I'm loving it! And the yellow shoes were just fun.

Kenzee helped me put away all my shoes the other day {they were scattered all over the bedroom floor} and after they were all in their little cubbies she noticed there were still two whole spaces left empty. :0) She agreed that perhaps that meant that I needed to buy a few more pairs. Then again....she has about 8 pairs of her own. It's a sickness.....

I've got the sock fetish, too. Anna has a whole bin full of shoes in her closet that I'm afraid to even count. It must be genetic:-)

dang it, I'm blogging and now I'm thinking I must go shoe shopping. Great. Now I'll get in trouble from hubby... but I'll just blame you.

Love the shoes!

Holly said...

I'm glad you like the shoes I got, but what about the pink ones, do you really like them?

Ashlee,

I apologize, I lost your email address. Please email me again (katie.alanos@yahoo.com) if you're still interested in the online/blog party. I received my stuff in the mail, and would be happy to send you some catalogs.

Talk to you soon,

Katie

I don't dig the bright colors, BUT-I love the flowered ones!

Jane the Sane said...

So cute, I especially like the flower printed ones.

Ashlee said...

Holly, yes I like the pink ones. I've worn them as well. I think the blue ones just attract more attention. :0) I actually saw a different pair of pink wedges at Payless about a week after you gave me these ones, and almost bought them until I remembered that I already had a pair from you. :0) So, don't worry! They are awesome! I really need to come down and have you take me to that store. It will be evil, and I'll probably need WAY more shoe storage space, but I will be in complete heaven!
