Aparently my feet need to get reacclimated to wearing flats instead of boots. The first day of warm weather I started off simple by wearing some black flats, kind of like the ones below. Being able to feel a fresh breeze on the top of my feet felt so good after spending a winter burrowing them inside of Uggs (sidebar: Uggs are kind of a staple in Chicago. That's just the way it is, since the weather can get to be below 0. Don't judge).
After about a day walking all over campus, going to Lincoln Park to volunteer, and walking up and down a thousand stairs, I wanted to kill my shoes. I wanted them gone, thrown out the window, never to be seen again. Showing you the blisters on my feet would probably gross you out and keep you from ever reading this blog again, so I'm not going to do that.
To make a long story short, the six red cuts on my feet mean that I need to wear comfortable footwear for the next few days. I've been wearing my Sperrys. I absolutely love Sperrys! My mom calls them "clunky", but she just doesn't get it. They add some pizzazz to any outfit, like this simple one I was wearing the other day.
This is the pair I have, although the edge is pink.
My friend went to a Sperrys outlet store when she was down in Florida over the break, and she got this cute pair. I'm so jealous, I'm a sucker for anything plaid.
