I warned you yesterday this was coming…. it was raining today. I get excited when it rains now because I have the perfect shoes to wear IN the rain! Can you guess what they are yet?
Today was a little warmer than it has been over the last few days, so not as many layers were required (although I have to say I am developing a whole new-found respect for merino thermals….. thank you Kathmandu…. I may be broke now, but I am certainly much warmer).
Ok, let me give you a clue. My shoes for today are from Target (Target do the BEST shoes!). They are boots. They are raspberry-coloured….
Raspberry gumboots!!! I LOVE them!
Short and sweet (explains both this post, and apparently my attention span for 7-day challenges). Yesterday and today were both sight-seeing adventures around Auckland city and beyond with the family so to be fair, shoe choices (and time to right blog posts about said shoe choices) were limited… but I gave it a go!
A trip to the north-west and the black beaches of Piha – I wasn’t really cheating wearing different Converse shoes was I? Well if I was, I saved the day by changing my shoes to head to dinner and a visit to the in-laws.
This second pair of shoes was a result of my shoe-shopping expedition with mum on Thursday night. Because clearly I don’t have enough pairs of loafers (read the original post here) I needed to secure another pair…. but they are different from the three I already have ok Mum?!
Two for the price of one! The flats are my newest purchase from Rubi shoes (available in store and online now for $34.95), the Converse cost my $10 at the Roselle Markets in Sydney – they have never been worn. Bargain!
My family arrived in Auckland today to visit from Australia (yay!) So a trip to the airport was involved. As was quite a lot of what my family likes to call piss-farting around. This is where everyone is ready to go…. except for one person, who is normally looking for a set of keys, or a jumper…. or a pair of shoes to wear (not pointing any fingers….. ok that was me).. but that is beside the point (I just had to mention that for my little brother, who is often at the receiving end of the afore mentioned piss-farting).
Sooooooo, the moral of the rant is that today’s activities called for some practical shoes to walk around this beautiful city that I now live in….. enter my trusty Converse Chuck Taylors.
When all else fails…. pull out the connies!
Day one was easy! Day two? Not so easy! I REALLY wanted to wear the same shoes I wore on day one! In fact I almost went on auto-pilot and slipped into my awesome new black suede ankle boots (see here for Day 1) BUT I behaved – I sat on the floor in front of my shoe-robe and actually LOOKED for a different pair of shoes to wear.
Here is what I found……. Teal suede platforms from Rubi Shoes
Now to be fair, I have given you plenty of warning about my
obsession slight interest in shoes. There is nothing like the feeling of slipping your foot into a gorgeous pair of heels …. a new pair of shoes can make any outfit better, they can brighten your day, they can make you walk taller and feel thinner, and no matter how many M&M’s you eat, they will still fit on your foot! …..(are you starting to understand the level of my obsession??)
