So I have been realizing that my first year of college is coming to an end and quickly, but it’s odd what things make this inevitable fact seem more real. It’s not the fact that my last day of classes … Continue reading
Attached is a letter I have recently written to myself for my english class. I think in it has good advice for anyone entering college, or even just a new phase in their life. This is a letter to myself so ignore the names and maybe inside jokes (yes they are with myself) and for anyone who is starting college in a few short months, I hope you get something out of this.
So as seeing that my blog is called “a beginner’s guide to shoes” I figured that I should incorporate some actual shoe advice into my rants/personal epiphanies/life lessons. So my first piece of advice is this… Every woman needs a pair of black heels in their wardrobe. A simple black pump is the shoe version of LBD. They can sex up a pair of skinny jeans, as well be worn with a mini skirt or sexy dress. Pick out a pair that you can actually dance the night away in, sexy shoes are only sexy for as long as you can wear them!
I have realized that while I am willing to pay $100 easily on a pair of shoes (now I’m aware that that is a large amount of money to be willing to dish out) I am not willing to pay $70 on a pair of half shorts. You girls all know what I’m talking about, the cute distressed ones from Urban. I am equally not willing to pay $50 on a crop top that I would not be comfortable to wear in front of my grandma. Don’t get me wrong, I think both the shorts and crop top are adorable, and great going out wear but for some reason I can not bring myself to pay for it. Give me a pair of 5″ heels that I only have 2 outfits I can wear them with for $120, in my closet they must go!!

Thanks to Pinterest, I have the new goal to get one of these bags in my closet. Already scheming on how to get it for my birthday
