Mirror, Mirror: Mama’s Day

What will I wear to the mall?

For Mother’s Day this year, I woke up in the morning, wanting to buy a new pair of shoes at a place I rarely ever visit- the mall.  I already have a good collection of shoes, but I felt it was time to give my feet something new and exciting.  With all the running around I do as a mother, I need it!  Most of my clothes and even shoes are swapped or from the thrift store, so going to the mall is kind of a big deal to me.  I detest most of the garb there anyways, but once in a while, you find that gem in the crowds.  I put on my fit hoping to find the perfect shoes to match with it.  I wanted to wear something comfortable, of course, since I would be going to three different restaurants, I needed to have some room to grow in the middle, if you know what I’m saying.  Tights and a dress always do that trick.  I also wanted to shine brighter than I usually do.  I’m a fan of bold, bright colors on the daily, which usually aren’t the typical hues for mothers to wear, so on Mother’s Day, I’ll definitely kick it up a few notches.  With my new shoes, too, I’m kickin’ it.

Lovin' my wing-tips!
