Shoes, Glorious Shoes

Ok so yesterday was my first day back from Mat leave.  Apart from the fact that the baby - who had been a good sleeper with only one night waking around 2am lately - decided it was party time about four times Sunday night, I was still ready to roll come Monday morning.

When I was in high school I would mark the return to school in the fall with the purchase of five new outfits. One for each day of that crucial first week.  (Bless my mother's heart)  It was a way to shrug off the summer buzz and get into school vibe.  Plus it was always about making a great re-impression after being gone those long summer weeks.

In honor of that tradition, I decided to purchase one new pair of shoes for each day of my week's return back to work.  So far, Monday's shoes were not good.  Adorable, but painful and kept slipping off my heel requiring me to walk around like a deranged duck.  Today's shoes are only slightly better which is disappointing considering they are my first L.A.M.B purchase - long overdue - and one would think that Gwen would know better than to go skimpy with cushioning for the balls of the feet in 4" heels.  Shame on you Gwenny.   But they look great and are only mildy uncomfortable so they stay.

Here are this week's selections so far, and I will continue to post each day what I'm rockin on the paws.

Monday's - Not Rated's "Cover Look" in navy polka dot:

Tuesday's - L.A.M.B's Tansy in Grey (more of a weird grey-brown but I love that about them):

Hopefully tomorrow will bring a little more comfort!
