I don’t know how you decide what to wear, but for me it varies every morning. Sometimes I plan an outfit the night before, and sometimes I’ll wait for inspiration to strike in the morning. Other times I wake up, check the weather, see a number below freezing, and wonder if it’s inappropriate to wear my pink fuzzy robe and comforter to work.
This outfit was all about the shoes. They were a Christmas present from my mom. I asked for them back in November, and she spent the entire month pretending she hadn’t bought them, making me even more excited to open them on Christmas day. I immediately tried them on and found that they were not only cute as heck, but also comfortable, which is like hitting the shoe jackpot.
Only time and distance can really test shoes, though, so I wore these to get brunch with one of my best friends a few weeks ago.
On their first public appearance, my shoes got coffee spilled on them, but also received a sincere compliment from a stranger, so ya win some ya lose some. Perhaps more important, the shoes were able to stand up to my personal Good Shoe Test™ meaning they didn’t hurt my feet after 4 miles of walking in them. 4 miles is not an arbitrary number, but one I have arrived at after years of research and tracking my average walking distance on my phone. I usually average 4 miles of walking a day, and shoes that can get me through the day without giving me blisters or aching arches are A+ in my book.
Also, if that hasn’t sold you by now, they are on sale for under $20 right now, which makes me want to buy another pair just to get in on such a good deal. I’m not being paid by Zara to tell you this, I just get aggressively excited about a really good sale. If you do too, you can buy the shoes from Zara’s website << by clicking that link. Happy shopping!
