Shoes, Shoes, Shoes

The title should be sung to the tune of Girls, Girls, Girls by Motley Crue. ¬†I just need to come up with the rest of the words ūüôā

As you might recall, I’ve been having some problems with mild plantars fasciitus. ¬†Because of that I am trying to move over to primarily “sensible shoes”. ¬†Thank goodness they are making cuter sensible shoes these days.

I am also crazy thankful for Podiatry Shoe Review, a blog written by one of the top Podiatrists in Phoenix. ¬†She has a great post that went up today on the Top 20 Women’s Comfort Dress Shoes. ¬†She talks about the features of different brands and styles, but more importantly does a terrific job of explaining what types of foot pain each shoe can or can’t hurt. ¬†I definitely recommend taking a look.

A Pot-Luck Thanksgiving

For the last few years my friends and I have had a tradition of what we call “Orphan’s Thanksgiving”. ¬†Rather than lots of small thanksgiving dinners, those of us without family or without nearby family get together and do a pot luck thanksgiving. ¬†Everyone brings a couple of things and we eat together.

As you might expect, this doesn’t require a dressed up look. ¬†So I went for stylish casual with all items I’ve worn before:

  • Blue snake print jeans (Kohls)
  • Black flow-y knit top (Valerie Bertinelli for Marshalls)
  • Black ballet-flat style sneakers (Marshalls, similar)
  • Brass geometric necklace (Loyalty and Blood via
  • Brass bracelet (the little boutique across the street)
  • Prescription Sunglasses (Goggles4u)

Looking at the picture, I’m not entirely happy with the taper on the leg of the jeans. ¬†However snake print jeans like this are a very trendy style, and likely to be OUT of style again fairly quickly. ¬†Plus they were pretty cheap in the first place, and border on too big.

And I know; a fashion in sneakers!!! ¬†What a shock! ¬†I can’t recall the last time I saw that… ¬†We’ll just write that one off as my own personal style ūüėČ
