My friends Bruna and Matt got married last Friday in the courthouse and they had a small celebration on Saturday evening at their home. When we got the invitations I thought that was going to be another great opportunity to save a high-heeled shoe and be on this week round-up of the shoe challenge!
I use to wear high heels all the time. ALL-THE-TIME! Last year I broke my toe and the doctor told me that my feet is shaped as a heel feet. It’s hard to explain in words but basically, means that your toes and bones are not aligned the way that somebody who never wears (or wear in moderation) high heels are.
Even when I was pregnant, I was still in my heels. But after my daughter was born, I was kind of afraid to drop her. It’s so much harder to hold a baby and find balance in heels. Then after she learned how to walk I though: Nice, now I can go back to heels! Until one day she ran away from me on the parking lot and it was hard to speed up to catch being in heels.
So I went back to flats. Nowadays she is a very good girl, who knows that she should always hold my hand and wait for me, but I got lazy. It’s so much more comfortable be in flats that it’s all I want to wear now. I own 14 pairs of ballet flats and one more sporty type from Puma. And my eyes always shine when I see a nice pair of flats. And I want more!!!
On the sandals side, I own just 4 pairs of flat sandals and 2 more dressy flip-flops. I totally need more flat sandals. I can’t wait for January 24th, 2012!
Back to the wedding, this is what I wore:
