My mom and I were recently discussing Nora Ephron and her hilarious book, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman. Upon reading a few excerpts, I was immediately inspired to create a new feature here on the blog. I'm calling it... Let's Get Real. I'm going to be sharing some of my thoughts on being a woman... you know, little things here and there that you might not see everyday in this crazy little blog world.
Today I'm going to talk a little bit about fashion. Sometimes I enviously look at fashion bloggers and think to myself, "Wow... that's such a cute outfit. I should really put more effort into my clothes." Well, the truth is, I could try harder but what I wear everyday is really far down on my list of priorities. I'm just not a fashion-y kind of girl, and I think there are a lot of you out there that feel me on this. Why not share that? It's nothing to be ashamed of. There's nothing wrong with jeans and t-shirts. They're comfortable! The simpler the better. That's my motto. So... let's talk shoes, shall we?
These are my shoes. They're dirty and falling apart. Is that tacky? Wait... let's be honest... I don't really care. Sometimes I wear Vans and sometimes I wear Converse, although the Converse usually win. On the weekends, when I'm running errands and I'm extra lazy, I'll wear flip flops. That's it! Sure I own heels but I don't wear them unless I absolutely have to. Of course I understand having to dress up for work but I've been lucky enough to have jobs with casual dress codes. This extreme love for Converse makes me wonder if I'll ever be too old for them. Will I look ridiculous wearing them at 60? Possibly. Will I wear them anyway and bask in their comfort? Definitely.
