Fashion Fiesta

medium button

Today is Big Mama's Fashion Fiesta!

So what you're supposed to do is share your wardrobe staples. Which for me is a pair of jeans, that are thankfully starting to get a little loose (woohoo), that have a big ol' hole in the knee and any sort of tank top since I feel like I'm 104 degrees lately.

I've been wanting to share these 2 pairs of shoes with you since about.. a month + ago and keep forgetting. When I saw the Fashion Fiesta I was really excited! Since these shoes contribute to my emotional wellbeing, I decided that while I wear them rarely for dressing myself up (doesn't happen often for a M.o.M.) that this was the moment to share them with the world!

Jake sent me out for a little shopping spree a little while back. I had a more formal bridal shower to go to, and right after having a baby nothing in the closet that was appropriate fit (agony).

I couldn't decide on which one pair of shoes and was advised by my husband to buy them both! If you can't believe it, there are 2 motivating factors for him to do this. 1) He has more shoes than I do and he's embarrassed about it. 2) I agonize over buying things for myself, and typically find a way to go without so I can be sure every other family member is comfortable - and Jake doesn't like that! (although at times the sacrifice has greatly benefited us and he appreciated the outcome, he just wants me to be as comfortable as everyone else. You know what I mean)

So for the first time in years, I have more than 1 pair of ridiculously cute shoes in my closet! (in fact, I had none for a very long time - only practical shoes, I'm a M.o.M., people!)

And here they are to share with you... so you can bask in their greatness with me.




Oh how I forgot I have a deep love for shoes... these 2 pairs have brought that to the surface!

**Edit** I was supposed to add what I have in the wardrobe my dreams... sigh.. maybe a pair of jeans, that fit, without a hole in the knee? According to one of those, find your perfect jeans things.. Old Navy's Sweetheart jeans are made for me... so a pair of those. Heck, how about 3 pairs.. this is the wardrobe of my dreams after all!

LOL! My husband too!

I am in love with both the shoes and your husband.

My husband will probably not like that at all. Maybe your husband should have a chat with my husband about why I love him. You know, advising you to buy BOTH pairs of shoes and all.

Love the brown polkadot shoes. Super cute.

I hear ya on the whole not having anything super cute to wear (that fits) to more formal functions.

Congratulations on your jeans fitting better. Nothing is a better pick me up than having the jeans fit better than the last time you wore them.
