Loving Life after 50

For the Love of Shoes

love of shoes

There are several things I love in life and several more I am passionate about, Shoes I think fit both categories.  I am addicted to shoes and I am not ashamed of that fact.  I have a lot of shoes, well actually I thought I had an excessive collection but here in this little ole blog world you oftren discover that there are many others more obsessed than yourself ( man I read about a woman who had 847 pairs… that makes my collection look pretty small)  So SHOES, high heels, flats, sandals, pumps, oxfords, sneakers, boots, booties… I love them all. Last night while surfing the net and checking out a few favoutite sites I stumbled across the shoe section at Shein (formerly SheInside).  Did you know they sold shoes? I have been so focused on the skirts and dresses that I never seriously perused the shoe section, well, I have found love in all the right places. Just look at this limited selection I am currently drooling over.
shoes I love

So with visions of shoes dancing through my head, I now must decide which I really really need.
But in the meantime lets focus on the ones I actually do own, these blue mesh wedges I love and have worn with so many different outfits. ( Shoe Dazzle another on line store that does not disappoint)

Wow check me out, Classic blazer, classic shift dress, classic bag the only statements are the colour and of course the shoes. This is one of my standard go to work, have a meeting outfits.  The serious Linda, the hey I am not wearing yellow gal. The “I am serious” look. Well sometimes a gal just has to dress the way one expects someone to dress, don’t you agree?  No, you are correct one must never dress how others expect, only how we expect ourselves to dress.  Me, I like to think I am a chameleon, a person that dresses to suit my environment, and that environment is what I chose it to be.  Today I felt like a more office style, but of course I still needed colour.
