Eye Spy...shoes!

Oh the shoes of my former life. We had fun. We ate out a lot, we went dancing. You were sometimes carried home when my feet had given up and it hurt too much to walk you up hill to our city apartment. We could still have fun? If only there was a place for us to go that was practical (that takes pregnant chicks and 19 month olds!). But alas, those days for us are few and far between.

Since becoming a stay-at-home-mum I've enjoyed always being able to wear comfy shoes as a day-to-day thing. No need for work heels - woo hoo!

I think I have two favourites that are just rotated between Summer and Winter (I'm pretty boring, always the same brands even when I buy new ones!) - birk's and tiger's. Both are super comfy which earns two thumbs up from me.

Not to say that I don't ever wear heels - but even they are now comfy - my Think! shoes. These are great, you don't feel like there's any heel there and I love the style of them.
So it's not goodbye my lovely strawberries and cream shoes - it's just until we meet again at the next appropriate function (where I won't be standing for long and have access to the car).

All this writing and reading of shoes has given me itchy feet (boom boom) to go and buy some newbies. I'm thinking a new pair of Summer flats are in order - perhaps some more Think! ones or maybe some Naots. If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them.

Thanks to Anastasia for picking such a lovely theme - head on over to Cindy's blog for shoe fashion.

hmmm i live in my tiger asics at the moment too... My favourite pair were sent to the op-shop a while back. I had a love affair with them in paris and could not resist bringing them home with me. I miss them.

I own those same birkis. I just can't wear them anymore tho.. they never seem to match what I have on?! Hmm maybe I need to try again!

Great post :)

Oh the days of heels and going out clothes!!....cocktails and tipsiness without having "going to have to get up at least twice during the night for my little monster" on the back of my mind!
You have great shoes! Thinks!! I am envious! My birthday is coming up....... do you get them from Children of the Rev?.....Or do you know somewhere cheaper? (please).

Those top shoes are to die for! Practical shoes are to live by!

Very nice party shoes! I have never been any good in heels ever, which is a shame as I am only about 155cm tall.

I think every girl needs a pair of fantastic shoes, even if you aren't breaking them out al the time, just to know that they are there
