The Quest for My Swagger Pt 1: The Shoes
Enter pregnancy.Â 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.Â After I gave birth, I didnâ€™t want to wear heels.Â Primarily because I had the fear of dropping the kid.
My feet got used to lower heels or wedges.Â Now I am trying to get my sexy swagger back and find a dilemma: my feet are not used to heels!Â Today I sported Beth to work.Â Let me give you a little background.Â Robin sent me over to Shoe Dazzle. Â Â I love it.Â And if you love shoes, you should definitely check them out (use my linkÂ and every time 3 of my friends sign up, I get a free pair of shoes!).Â But I digress.Â 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.Â I mean yes, when we talk about our shoes we now sound like weâ€™re in a love relationship with another woman but, who cares, right?Â I wore Beth to work today.Â I was sitting there looking cute at work.Â Then my feet started hurting.Â As a matter of fact, I think that one of them started cramping.Â Could this be?Â I couldnâ€™t even sit while wearing cute heels!Â This is ridiculous!
When I walk, I feel cute and confident.Â My feet donâ€™t hurt.Â Why are my feet uncomfortable when I am sitting down, I ask you?Â I realize that I need a guide to attaining back my previous title.Â 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.Â Stay tunedâ€¦
