Making an effort

Boots: Colin Stuart

I just wore these boots for the first time in months the other day and it made me realize that I've been in a serious shoe rut.

As much as I love shoes I always end up wearing the same two or three most comfortable pairs consistently until the weather forces me to change. Right now I've been alternating between my two pairs of black Payless boots since Fall (I guess that makes it about eight months!).
I'm definitely going to have to make more of an effort to wear the rest of my shoe collection from now on.

i know what you mean but when you get into a routine its pretty hard to get out of it sometimes

UberOriginal said...

I think most people struggle with this, like the favourites get worn all the time while others get neglected. xx

Claudia said...

I love those boots!

Jennifer said...

I do the same thing! Love these boots!

Lainey said...

Those boots are gorgeous. I'm the same way with my shoes though. I always tends to wear my most comfortable pair of boots, because sometimes I just don't have the patience. I love those Colin Stuarts though.

Those boots are so gorgeous! Wow I really really like them, they remind me a bit of the Marc Jacobs from a while back.
I am the same way with shoes. I have a million pairs but always end up wearing the same ones! Maybe I will follow your lead haha xx

I get that way too babygirl. Despite all the shoes I have I basically stick to a few pairs. Hope you have better luck than me switching between yours!

KISS, China L.

I was looking for a leather jacket a while ago and I found mine floating around...I'm pretty sure this would fit you and its a hell of a lot cheaper than it was new.
