… or function over fashion.
I wouldn’t say I am a big “fashionista” kind of mom but I have my share of cute clothes if I do say so myself. I don’t shop that often nor have all the designer duds though. I like to pick up a cute shirt, pair of shoes or jeans now and then. Shopping is just not a passion for me.
Recently, I found these cute, strappy sandals at a boutique store downtown. Of course being a mom who always looks for a bargain, they were sold the minute I saw the markdown from $75.00 to $18.99. Can’t pass up a bargain like that!
I wore the sandals the next day at work and my feet were killing me! Our receptionist commented on how cute they were. I promptly told her about my bargain find and agreed with the “cute” comment. When I mentioned how much they hurt she said, “Oh yes, fashion over function!” I laughed and hobbled away.
Last weekend, I went to a 3 year old’s birthday party and wore a similar style of sandal. Because I had my little guy and boo with me, I was on my feet almost the whole time. Half way through the party I wondered why I didn’t opt for my flip-flops.
I have a closet full of cute wedges, strappy heals and various “fashion” sandals that I loved to wear. With two little ones to chase after these days, my choice in shoes has evolved to say the least.
Following my latest puffy toes experience, I decided “Function Over Fashion” is the way for this mom on the go to get up and go! The other way just hurts.
