My Housewife Shoes0
Yesterday I was given a pair of yellow shoes for my birthday. They were a gift from my husband who had seen me staring at them in a shop window last month. While I was peering into the closed shop I told him that those shoes could be my ‘housewife’ shoes. I don’t really identify with being a housewife, and I think the term is majorly outdated, but these shoes called for a bit of a retro name.
They looked easy to slip on, which is vital when you are holding a baby on your hip and ushering a preschooler out the door, and I thought they were lady like with a bit of chilled elegance. Plus they looked comfortable and that is a big factor for me. Really, it was a win win situation overall!
While my sense of style has changed over the years I still like to look put together every day, that part has not changed about me. However, I don’t take hours in the bathroom each morning doing my hair and instead only wash my hair about twice a week. I alternate between leaving it down and putting it in a top knot or a ponytail. I have a 5 minute make up regime that I’ve perfected to give me just enough of a put together look. Sometimes I even give my skin a break and totally skip all make up in favour of just some sun protection.
If you run into me on the street you can guarantee that I’ll have some earrings on and a pair of shades. When the weather turns cooler I’m often accessorizing with a scarf and as much as I do love the warm sunshine I can also really get behind sweater season.
What makes you feel put together and ready for your day?
