Mama got some new shoes

After careful deliberation, I finally decided how to spend some of my Christmas money (thank you, Jody Santa). I ordered a pair of shoes from Sierra Trading Post. It was while I was placing the order that I realized that the only other new pair of shoes I’ve bought for myself in the past five years or so were my Crocs. Gah. That’s a long time for a girl to go without new shoes.

Anyway, they are $80 Mary Jane Tevas that I got for $39.95 (woohoo!) on closeout.

Here they are. Please note that I don’t normally wear my jeans rolled up for the high-water effect. I rolled the legs so I could get a shot of the shoes. ;)


In case you are sitting there saying to yourself – wow, I want those shoes! – I must note that I read some reviews online that they run a full size bigger so I got myself a 9 instead of a 10. I did find that to be true and yes, I do have big feet. I’m still trying to decide if I’m keeping them or not though. The heel part sits a little lower than I’m used to and I don’t know if it will rub and cause a blister if I wear them for any length of time. So for now I’ve been wearing them around the house with the tags still attached (as you see in the pics). I’m such a dork.
