Blue Thong Sandals {Shoe Style Saturday}

Turquoise Thong Sandals

See those thongs? I picked them because the color just screamed”Take me home, we’ll have lots of fun together!” So I did. Big honkin’ mistake. I wore them to work and half way through the day I ended up putting on my walking shoes that keep under my desk for midday walks. My feet were killing me. I know those types of shoes have a break in period but ohmyword that was just painful. I’ve always lived by the mantra of “Fashion over function” but if your feet hurt, there’s nothing you can do to make the day better…

In other news, I’ve been doing really well with the August Photo A Day challenge. I know, it’s only the 4th day but I’ve been known to quit things 2 days in soooo…. I’m pretty happy with myself right now. If you’d like to see my interpretations, just go here.

And because I like a challenge, I’ve started a second 31 day photography challenge. 31 Days 31 Photos 31 Stories is being hosted by fellow #BLMGirls, Beatrice, at inspired by Beatrice Clay. It’s so much fun! You take a picture according to the prompt and then you tell a story about the picture in 6 words. Lemme tell ya, it gets the creative juices flowing! You can see my pictures here.

    I LOVE pretty shoes but if it’s one thing that I won’t tolerate it’s wearing pretty shoes that hurt my feet. NO. MA’AM!

    I’m a little late with the challenge but I read about it and hoped that I had saw it sooner. I’m hoping that he does one for September as well.

    • Hey, lady. I apologize for replying so late. I’m just now seeing your reply…

      I ended up getting rid of the shoes. They were killing me and I just couldn’t deal… LOL

    Are those birkenstocks? If son keep wearing them by day 4 you’ll never want to take them off. When I wore mine the first couple days I was in pain. I have flat feet, no arch whatsoever. Sure enough day 4 came and my feet were so happy in those birks. I wore them down into the ground lol.mthanks for sharing about the #31stories 🙂

    • I apologize for replying so late, I’m just now seeing this.

      Actually, they’re ghetto birks (fake ones), which is why they hurt like crazy. I’m never going the cheap route again. As a shoe lover, I should have known better. :-/
