I am not at all unique - I love love love shoe shopping. That's not to say everyone digs it; I just know I could shop for shoes and handbags as a regular part of my daily diet.
Yesterday, the girls and I went out to get some shopping done. Both are getting ready for school while Joe is at Boy Scout Camp this week. Each of them found a pair of shoes for school, a lovely cardigan sweater for early fall, and a dress. Me? I found a tablecloth. Really?!
Admittedly, I tried on MANY different shoes, but I didn't fall in love with any of them. Oh sure, some of them I liked an awful lot, but I want to be smarter with our budget and am waiting to really fall in love with the perfect everyday pair. To be fair - I did fall in love with a pair of butter-soft Max & Co flats - but the fit was a bit off.
No way I could say the day was a waste - the girls and I had fun together, took our time, and enjoyed each others company; tons of sparkle in that!
Having the freedom to shop for shoes with the women I love is where it's at.
