Guys, girls, whatever… I KNEW THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN!
In fact, I was warned.
Once you get one pair, you will want more…
It took less than 24 hours for me to realize that I need another pair of Tieks.
This OOTD is pretty much all Old Navy… Pixie pants, linen blend button down shirt, and cardigan. I can’t remember what I paid for each item but I have an ON credit card now and they are pretty generous with the rewards on top of sale prices. The necklace I got in my women’s clothing resale group a while ago. It’s one of my favorites.
Here’s the problem. The brown shoes I got at Goodwill for like $5 last year don’t quite match the outfit. My off-white canvas Toms wedges don’t quite look right either. The nude heels I bought at Old Navy a few weeks ago are perfect… except for the fact that they are insanely uncomfortable and difficult to walk in. That’s not a knock on Old Navy, the problem is me. It wouldn’t matter if they were $500 Louboutins, I can’t do heels. I grabbed them thinking I was going to turn over a new leaf and magically become a pump girl. Didn’t happen.
So now I am insanely tempted to splurge on another pair of Tieks in either nude or very pale pink. I mean, I didn’t pay for the first pair, so if you think about it, I would have 2 for the price of one, which means I’d be paying less than $100 per pair and that’s not too bad, right?
Don’t you love how we try to justify spending entirely too much money by convincing ourselves that we’re somehow saving money?
Should I do a GoFundMe? I’ve seen people do them for worse. My husband would probably divorce me if I spent $175 on a pair of shoes right now… So it would be for the sake of keeping a family together. That’s a worthy cause, right?
Side note: He’s already grinning and bearing the home makeover I am dropping mad cash on right now… New furniture arrives Saturday! I’ll have lots of pictures and I’ll explain why the whole thing has been a psychological challenge for me.
Anyway, that’s about all I have for today.
Thanks for reading… Feel free to comment and share my posts if you want me to keep doing this…
