The birth of a shoe addiction?

Don't mind the lack of pedicure.  I had to share you these friggin' adorable shoes.  I don't know what's come over me these last few weeks.  Those of you that know me in real life or have read my blog long enough to see the repeated demonstrations of my "mommy frumpiness" are probably thinking, since when does Jen wear girly high heals and care about fashion?  I know, I'm thinking the same thing!  I never wanted to be all girly and put together.  Something clicked in me these last few weeks (maybe it's my fashionable office mate that comes in looking all cute and put together daily), or maybe it's a "oh my god I"m almost 30" phase, or maybe it's all these changes in my life that have triggered a girly metamorphasis, or who knows....

So Saturday afternoon my husband wanted to go shopping. He wanted cologne (his was literally bone dry and he has used every last drop), and I needed socks.  He dragged me into the shoe section of Kohls and made me try on 6 pairs of shoes.  I found these flowered shoes and thought "oh my god those are so cute but so not me...."  He convinced me to buy them (on sale for $33!) and away we went.

It's not just shoes though, I've been really inspired lately to glam things up a little more.  I have tried to make my hair a little more polished looking and tried to get out of my comfort zone with my attire.  It's not much, but it's a start.

Today fashionable office mate and me spent 2 hours in forever 21 trying on necklaces.  I branched out a little and I'm really happy with my purchases.  We'll have to see if I can keep branching out.  I told my husband not to be surprised if he comes home and I'm wearing my Nike gym shorts sometimes too *which I just got three pairs off ebay new for $18.99!  

Me and Mimi today
My man the shoe-lover.
