Enter pregnancy. I still sported heels while pregnant and found myself at a loss for when I was put on bed rest and had to go to appointments because, what to wear on my feet? I was real upset when I had to sport cute, fancy flip flops for my baby shower because heels were not allowed and I had nothing in my closet. After I gave birth, I didn’t want to wear heels. Primarily because I had the fear of dropping the kid.
My feet got used to lower heels or wedges. Now I am trying to get my sexy swagger back and find a dilemma: my feet are not used to heels! Today I sported Beth to work. Let me give you a little background. Robin sent me over to Shoe Dazzle. I love it. And if you love shoes, you should definitely check them out (use my link and every time 3 of my friends sign up, I get a free pair of shoes!). But I digress. Please see a picture of Beth below and bask in the cuteness (also, a percentage of the sales of that shoe went towards breast cancer research so this was a win-win!).
I love that they have names for the shoes. I mean yes, when we talk about our shoes we now sound like we’re in a love relationship with another woman but, who cares, right? I wore Beth to work today. I was sitting there looking cute at work. Then my feet started hurting. As a matter of fact, I think that one of them started cramping. Could this be? I couldn’t even sit while wearing cute heels! This is ridiculous!
When I walk, I feel cute and confident. My feet don’t hurt. Why are my feet uncomfortable when I am sitting down, I ask you? I realize that I need a guide to attaining back my previous title. This brings me to rule #1 in me getting my mami swagger back:
- Wear high heeled shoes to work at least twice a week in order to work my foot out and get it back into sexy mami shape!
More rules in the days to come. Stay tuned…
