Now that my feet aren't in blimp-like proportions, I have been wanting new shoes. I finally got a new pair from Anthropologie today.
These are pretty bold for me, but I love the color so much. Most of my clothes are neutrals anyway, so they shouldn't clash with much.
I also have my eye on a couple other pairs...
I love the vintage look of these and they are in my favorite colors - charcoal gray and olive green. Love. I can pretend like I'm Steve Prefontaine in them too.
I have another pair of Toms with polka dots on them but they are ratty now and Reeses has chewed on them a bit. They are the shoes I put on when I need to go outside to take out the trash or water the garden. I want a pair that I can actually wear in public. I went to Whole Earth Provisions to try them on but they didn't have my size and Sam was starting to fuss so I couldn't check any other stores. And of course they are sold out online. Oh well. I will save up to get the Nikes first and maybe this pair will be restocked after that.
Now if I can just lose this last 20 pounds of baby weight, I can enjoy going clothes shopping again. Jimmy and I have been going on nightly walks with Sam and Reeses and we are planning to get a membership to the zoo so that I can walk around there whenever I want. The exercise along with my decrease appetite should get me back to my old self before too long. I've already lost 26 pounds at 3 weeks postpartum, so I'm hopeful. I just want to fit back into my old jeans. I hate jeans shopping.
