breaking the routine

Ok - I'm going out on a limb. My sweet husband is begging me to use some of our tax return monies to buy some transitional clothing that will do me good this summer as I go through end of pregnancy-new baby body-starting to work off three babies weight. I figure once we're good and settled in Boston, once our budget is firm and established, and once my body is one the way back to normalness - I'll add in some real pieces and start building a wardrobe that has no expanding pants or flowing tummies. Well, maybe a few... for comfy days.

Anyhow, I'm determined to buy one pair of sexy shoes to make myself wear them in these last few weeks of pregnancy/first few months of Tres. I know if I buy one pair, I will eventually wear them - even if it is just to church or on our first date postpartum. I think Nick deserves that. In my closet full of flats and tennis shoes, he deserves one pair - meant only to impress him. And since I stick pretty hardcore to the modesty wardrobe, the sex appeal needs to make an appearance in the shoe department.

So, let's hear what you guys think. I'm taking an idea from Miss Ladd, and I'm going to ask for a vote. So come on, lurkers, you too - give us a vote!



selection A


selection B


selection C


selection D


selection E



Most pairs are under $50, fyi.
And I just have to say, I'm already laughing. I cannot imagine myself putting on one pair of these in any circumstance - which means I desperately need to.
Oh, how a few years and a few pregnancies can change you.
Help me, help my husband, pick me out some shoes - please.

I like A, C, & D!!

Jennie said...

C! I love nude colored heels. They make every lady's legs look 6 inches longer!

Iris said...

I really like B, but the heel is almost practical. And it doesn't sound like you want these to be practical (but that will mean you will get more mileage from them, more than likely). So if not B, then C.

wight people said...

B looks like a pair you would buy and wear for sure...but I LOVE D! WOWZA

Lauren said...

selection 'e' please.

kellycowan said...

i find C most sexy by a mile. i also think i picked it b/c they seem most out there to me as far as what i would actually wear, but that's what you're going for. B looks too close to ones you have now, though cute. i think i should get in on this sexy thing...;)

Alexandra said...

Good Choices! I am a big fan of A and D and C is pretty hot too!!! I am not sure if you could go wrong...

lauren said...

definitely A or D! it's all about the peep-toe!

Leigh said...

I love it! Voting is the best and now you might have to guest host Fashion Friday on my blog when I am in Seattle since I did steal the idea from you in the first place.

I LOVE B! Then A and D tie for second.

Annie said...

I'd go with C but that's becuase I love classic looks and that shoe just looks classic to me....something you could wear five years from now.

WelleyB said...

Guurll...you gotta go with C! No question about it! Your legs will look like they don't ever end and Nick won't know what to do! Well....I mean, he will...but...you know!

Nick said...

I love how all of you women could not pick just one...

staci said...

definitely A. c is too predictable. A is unique, stylish, sexy. pick A.

Mere said...

I would say C & D. D is definitely my favorite, but I think C looks just a little more comfortable. So if you're going just for looks, I would say D.

Hi, I'm Amy! said...

Ooooh, I like A :) B looks a lot like "you" but you need a higher heel to maximize the sexiness!

Lauren said...

Definitely A or B. They are most your style (and mine for that matter:))

Love you.

michelle said...

absolutely C. because it's puke yellow. however, D, the metallic slingback, is going to be very stylish for the duration. and the heel is higher, so it's probably sexier than C. but C...is oh so fabulous. and probably comfortable too. does nick vote?? c'mon, nick. what nes do you like??

michelle said...

right. do i know the alphabet? by C, i meant B. B is puke yellow.

right.

C will make your legs look long as all heck though. and match everything. oh, but they look a little uncomfortable- patent leather...eeek.

Jessica said...

My vote is for A! SUPER HOT MOMMA!

Milovy said...

I love trendy stuff so my vote is E. But C would work for a lot of stuff.

N. Toft said...

as someone who cringes at the sight of and thought of wearing high heels...B. love them.

Destiney said...

D hands down! It transcends seasons, trends and metallic goes with everything. The tiny platform will make your legs look longer and the peep/sling back is a stylish classic that you'll be able to wear for years. I can see it with capris, sundresses, flowy skirts, shorts, jeans, casual or dressy... I'm inspired!

Rachel said...

A few days late but I'm all about A! As a kindred spirit in the 'haven't worn heels sense I've had kids' club, if I had any opportunity to buy and wear heels I would go for those. :)
