This week I unleashed the shoe shopper in me. There I was back at my favourite shoe shops at opening time. I even happily ventured past the ‘Hotpants: 5 ways’ promotions at Topshop to my own little quiet corner of endless, beautiful, colourful shoes. I even went shopping online after downloading the only shopping apps you could ever need – ASOS and ShopStyle.
But by the end of the week, I was still empty handed. As we set out for our Easter holiday, I felt disappointed rather than excited like I should have been at the start of a five day break with a free pass to eat as much chocolate as you liked (why try to fight it over Easter).
The answer was simple – I still didn’t have the perfect shoes. How could I fail at this task? Unlike all those years ago where I would enter a shop and wait to see what would take my fancy, now I knew what I wanted. Maybe I’m a more grown up shopper? And what I wanted was wedges.
The choice was overwhelming – wedges crossed with trainers? The Clarks wedges – a take on their desert boot?
Or perhaps wedges perfect for the summer sun?
Or perhaps just something metallic?
And then I realised the choice didn’t have to be so difficult. Why stop at just one? Well, maybe one for this week – hello new Clarks wedges in khaki. I can be cool and practical at the same time – yes, I’ve been reading The Hunger Games.
It’s good to indulge yourself every now and then so I’m going to update my super budget for a new pair of wedges every now and then. Hmm, which will be next?
