Are made for walking! I've been driving myself wonkers trying to make up my darn mind and buy a pair of everyday boots...I realize I have a lot of shoes...shoes I never wear...like ever! I'm usually in one of three pairs of shoes on a daily basis, and in summer one (flip flops) if not barefoot!
SO... I'm cleaning my closet out. Geez...it feels good to purge. While researching mid-century modern homes (because we are planning to rock the history of the home and bring back some of that retro flare) I just happen to stumble on an article of "why" homes in the 1950's had such small closets.....it's because men and women typically only had 5 pairs of shoes each. The article further highlighted that actually 5 pairs of shoes was "a lot" back then....
I think it would be great to only have five pairs of shoes.
- Less clutter.
- No asking what shoes should I wear? (and having your hub always pick the ones you really don't want to wear)
- No tripping over shoes on your way to potty in the middle of the night (don't tell me this hasn't happened to you?!)
- Justification to purchase "spiffy" better quality shoes- is there because you're funding 5 pairs not 50!
Take a guess which shoes I ordered online today???? My requirements were in no specific order: Color: Black, for everyday wear, minimal to no heel, quality- preferably leather upper, a mid calf range in height...no knee high boots for me!....................
Lucky Brand- "Amber" boot
Frye- "Melissa Button" boot
Miz Mooz-"Bloom" boot
Doc Marten- "Mel Elena" boot
Lucky Brand- "Angel" boot
Miz Mooz- "Moon" boot
Miz Mooz- "Hugo" boot
Anthropologie- "Nor'Easter" boot
Frye- "Veronica Slouch" boot
It was a tough call really I wanted to buy a few of these........but that wouldn't be following my mid-century ay of thinking! So I shopped around, found myself an online coupon for 15% off and free shipping both ways (should they not fit right) and clicked purchase.
Leave me a comment; What would have been your pick (if any) out of these??....and take a shot at guessing which ones I bought!!!
(And YES...I got rid of quite a few pairs of shoes/clothes to a local consignment shop to make way for my new boots :))
