New York City!
During FASHION WEEK!
I didn't even plan for it to be during Fashion Week. It just happened to be the ONLY weekend that worked out for me to go visit my friend Elizabeth. No, I don't have tickets to any of the actual fashion shows. But I will definitely be stalking around the city looking for fashionistas.
So, here is my issue. I still don't have any cute shoes that are comfortable (and by comfortable I mean "walk for miles" comfortable). For comfort, most Atlantans seem to prefer flip flops -
But I can't walk for miles in flip flops. And ballet flats bother my heels and toes. Converse shoes have been extremely popular internationally -
They are starting to trickle into Atlanta -
I may join this band wagon one day, but I am just not feeling very sporty lately. I was inspired by this girl to try some flat strappy sandals -
Here are the sandals from Nine West that I just bought (on sale) -
So far they pass the test for my "mom" life, but they haven't yet walked for miles in my "street style blogger" life.
I visited Aerosoles, because sometimes they have some comfortable shoes that are pretty cute. Once again, I ended up going more for the cute than the comfortable -
I haven't worn them out of the house yet, but they have way too many cutouts and angles to not create blisters somewhere. I decided that something I can wear with socks is the best way to go. So, I ordered these wedge boots from asos (free shipping both ways) -
I also tried on these boots at Aldo (and they are soooo comfortable), but I heard that they have gray suede in NYC. Can anyone confirm that for me?
I can hear some of you saying, "Just buy some Clarks and be done with it." I know, I can be stubborn.
