You see, I think it's important every girl have a pair of shoes that when she straps them on, she goes "oh yeah, that's right, I'm Super Woman hear me RAWR!" I mean let's face it, we all have those days where we feel cranky, fat, ugly, mean or just plain bleh. I have two pairs of shoes that are an instant attitude adjusters. The first being, of course, my beloved Justin Ropers. I wear these to every country concert and all winter long and nothin makes me feel like a prettier redneck chick than my boots. But, they're black and as such don't really "go" with my work uniform of brown pants and a blue shirt. My other attitude shoes don't really "go" either, but I love them so much I think they go with everything. I'm talkin about my oh so adorable pink Chuck Taylor All Stars. Growing up, I always had Chuck Taylors. By the time I was 6 or so, I had a red pair of Chucks (and a red pair of Justins, come to think of it..I see a pattern) and by the time I was a teenager I had numerous pairs. Sure, they're not the most comfortable shoes for being on your feet all day, but I tell you what, nothin makes me feel more feisty, adorable and downright spunky. I've worn them to work a few times now (paired my favorite way, with a skirt) and I always get compliments on them. In fact, some of the ladies have taken to callin me "Spitfire" because of the 'tude I project while wearin my girls. I was given them a few years ago by my hubby for my birthday after some not-so-subtle hinting, and I wear them everywhere during the summer (they're not the most practical snow shoes). They go great with a skirt at work, with a dress to church or with cutoffs to the lake. I'm hoping to pick up another pair for my
Tell me about your attitude shoes. Do you have a pair? Do you need a pair? Would you like to borrow my pink Chucks?
