13 Wishes

This is the worst! You go on a shoe site and see some killer shoes. You click your shoe size to narrow down the results and BAM nothing but fugly shoes. So disheartening! For example, I went to a site put in size 13 and an entire page of these in different colors popped up:


This prompted me to search high and low for pretty sandals up to size 13 because NOBODY should subject their feet to this hot mess.  Enjoy (big smile:)!

Cross Colors

I reached into my handbag yesterday and something was terribly wrong.  I didn’t really know how bad it was until I pulled my hand out and there was ink all over it.  You guessed it.  A pen had exploded in my brown cross-body bag and ruined it :(

Of course there are WAY worse things happening in the world but for a split second my fashion world had ended.  Straight handbag blues. BUT my frown quickly turned upside-down where I realized that this meant I could search for a new one…and the race was on!

I looked up the one I had, no luck, but then I found some that brightened my day in 2 ways; 1) they were ca-uute and 2) the colors were so bright that they literally brightened my day (#supercorny:).

Make it Rain

When I first saw people wearing rain boots I literally laughed out loud.  What adult would wear a rain boot?  I equated it to footsie pajamas...anyone over 10 shouldn't wear them (of course this is my opinion.  If you want to rock an adult footsie pajama go ahead.  That's on you:). 

BUT my tune on rain boots has changed.  They come in real handy for those days where you have to wade to work and there are so many cute styles that you almost forget that you are wearing waterproof footwear.    

Attack a rainy day in style with these boots up to size 14!
