Shoe Style Saturday

Brown Sandals {living outside the stacks} #ShoeStyleSaturday

Welcome to the first edition of Shoe Style Saturday! I used to host this many years ago, then I just kind of let it fall to the side. There wasn’t a real reason for it. I just got lazy, I guess.

Then I started talking to fellow blogger, Shugunna {Nzuri N* Simplicity}, and we decided to bring it back. I know, why now? Well, why not now? I mean, we need something to distract us from does the Kermit wave what’s going on out there.

Like many of you, I’ve been home with my family. We started telecommuting about a week ago and the transition hasn’t been without its {very minor} hiccups, but I’m trying to keep to as normal a routine as possible. I still wake up at 5:45 am and take Bleu out for her morning walk. I still shower and get dressed every day as if I’m going to the library. And, if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I still take my morning coffee pictures. This helps me maintain a sense of normalcy. And it means there won’t be a massive adjustment when it’s time to return to work.

I’m also watching my fair share of TV shows. Right now I’m binge watching a British mystery called The Stranger. I can’t tell if I like this show or if I can’t stop watching it. It’s one of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen {but not quite as weird as Tiger King – I haven’t watched that yet, but my Facebook timeline is full of the craziness that is that show}.

So, how are you handling things? Where have your shoes taken you lately? Leave a comment and let me know what’s going on in  your world.


Shoe Saturday is hosted by Shugunna {Nzuri N* Simplicity} and me. We’re both shoe girls and we thought this would be a fun way to share our shoes and write about our week or share our plans for the weekend. It’s all very informal and fun. You’re more than welcome to join us. If you’re on Instagram, tag us {@DaenelT and @NzuriNSimplicity} and use the hashtag #ShoeStyleSaturday.

Now go play in your closet,
