Mary Jane Shoes Make Me Happy

Fun fact…  Besides hating heels because they hurt my feet and knees (a.k.a. I’m old), I also have really skinny ankles so they slip off. Grrrr… I’ve tried those grippy things, and they work OK if I’m not wearing hosiery. All bets are off if I’m wearing tights. It’s likely that I’ll accidentally fling one off as I’m walking. Yes, it has happened. And then God created the Mary Jane shoe and the clouds parted and the angels sang.

Hallelujah! A strap! Straps are wonderful!

I have a lot of black flat, casual shoes, but I had been searching for a dressier black shoe with a bit of a heel for a while. I wanted something that would work for the office when I didn’t want to wear a bootie. These are just a 2 inch heel, so I can wear them all day long and could probably hike several miles in them. Yes, there are granny shoes but I don’t care. I like them. If you wanna wear super high heels, you can. I DON’T WANT TO. You do you and I’ll do me. (Apparently, I’m old AND ornery.)

This is me.

I’m super happy wearing this. I wish I could wear something like this every day, but alas I can only wear jeans to the office on Friday, and I can’t wear ripped jeans. BOO. So, I tend to live in these on the weekends.
