If there is one thing that my husband is good at (in fact, much better than me) it is shopping for clothes, for me.
I find it so hard to find something that looks good on me, and he just goes to the store, grab a couple of things and voila, perfect.
Most of the time.
He recently bough me a pair of boots (which I loved) but they were the wrong size. To be fair, my shoe size varies between a 38/39/40 depending on the shoe.
Anyway, he bought me a pair of knee high boots (flat heel, the kind that you can just pull up). I loved them but even with a pair of thick socks they were too big.
No problem I’ll just take them back and change them.
Problem, they were the last pair in the store and none of the other stores had them in stock either. Okay, I’ll change them for another pair.
Well I have not been embarrassed by my kids like this in a long time. Here is what happened:
I took the kids with me to exchange my boots (mistake nr. 1). But I thought, they are big, they can hang around while I look for a pair of boots.
So first off I saw these boots …. loved them!
Only to be told, by Cat, very loudly! ‘ Put those down, you are not 18 anymore, you a old, and you are a mother of 2 kids, you can’t be seen wearing boots like that. Put them down!’
And despite my plea, the earth did not open up and swallow me.
In the end I got these,
|also from Zara|
which I also love but I still need a pair of flat boots and when I go to buy those I’ll make sure that the kids are home, alone, with nothing to do … (I’m kidding …… a little)
But speaking about boots and shoes I love all of these, oh to have the money to be able to afford all the shoes I see. Which ones do you like?
|Not sure where these are from|
