It’s been awhile since my last Mindless Monday post…. Prepare yourself for a random post about shoes!
I love ballet flats. It’s pretty much the only type of shoe I wear since having two kids. I think my days of stilettos, or any type of high heel, are long gone. When I’m holding two kids, one on each hip, a diaper bag filled with snacks and diapers, juggling the keys and my iphone… flats just seem practical. About a year ago, when I spotted a yellow pair of snakeskin Gianni Bini ballet flats, I fell in love. My husband hated them, and so did my mom. But I knew I loved them, ignored their opinions, and bought them anyway. Who cares if a couple people didn’t like my shoes? If I loved them, wasn’t that all that mattered? So I did what made me happy, and I seriously wear those shoes with almost every outfit. They go with everything. And if you see me out and my yellow shoes don’t match my outfit, don’t you dare tell me!
So do what makes you happy – kind of a big statement to draw from a pair of shoes. But as dumb as it sounds, my yellow shoes make me happy. They make this worn out mother of two feel a little bit stylish, and I would have missed out if I had just done what everyone else told me to do.
If it makes me happy, does it matter what other people think?
