these shoes are killer. no. seriously. they kill.







cardigan:target // shirt&pants:american eagle // shoes:clarks

After gazing in my closet, wondering what I'd wear today I realized I hadn't worn my wedding shoes in for.ev.er. So I threw together an outfit I thought would accompany them quite nicely, slid my backpack on and bounded up the hill to school. Not a little baby  hill, imagine a slow 45 degree slant, followed by a 90. No matter how much zumba I do, it kiiiiills me every time.

Minutes after leaving my quant apartment I remembered why I never.ever.ever wore those shoes. Accompanied by a memory of going through a whole package of band-aids on our wedding day, wrapping up all my toes and across my heels. PS those band-aids were the bright colorful ones. Pretty sure if you zoom in on the garter toss you might be able to see a lime green one.... 

Unfortunately, almost 11 months later they still aren't broken in. And I have the blisters to prove it. Ouchy.

In fact, I was so exuberated after a full day of walking in those bad boys that I couldn't even make it through the pic sesh with the hubs, where I sat down and gave him little pitiful smiles, while mostly complaining about my bubbling skin. If I hadn't worn those shoes on my wedding day...I'd probably burn them.

On an entirely different note. While we were taking these pictures there was a couple in a car about 10 feet away sucking eachother's faces off. So that was fun. At least they were blissfully oblivious, which is better than all the times people awkwardly walk or drive by, and probably wonder, why is that guy taking pictures of that girl? It's not like they figure we're in a photography class since I use a bread and butter digital camera. So I imagine they probably think I'm some egotistical freak who loves taking new facebook pictures or something. 

The things I do for blogging....

  1. blisters are the worst! I hate it when you have that pair of shoes that you absolutely love, but they kill to walk in. Well the shoes (and your outfit) are adorable, so I'd call it worth it :)

    P.S. I love your blog! I haven't been following for long, but I really enjoy your outfit posts!

  5. Love the burgundy cardigan on you. Gorgeous colour. Sorry about the shoes. I find I have to wear them with socks to stretch them out a big and that helps. Love how you were taking pics next to 2 people making out.

  9. Try a wearing them around the house or to school with a pair of big, comfy socks (maybe your hubbys?)! It always works to break my uncomfy shoes in.
