When Little Miss Brat (aka my daughter) told me the other day that pink is not a color for adult women, I could not help but reflect on my shoe collection. This is not strange, as my shoe collection is, uhm... predominantly pink. A variety of shades of pink, of course, not just one shade as that would probably be strange.
I decided to soothe my growing anxiety. The method I decided on was to decide on was to very quickly choose my favorite shoes in each category. The results were as such:
In the daily slopping around the house shoes category the winner was: My shocking pink crocs. Naturally - I wear them most days and they're in my favorite color.
In the beach category: My pink slip-slops! I soothed my conscience again, as the walk to the beach is basically just across the road and then I take them off to feel the sand beneath my feet. Nobody actually saw them, so they did not count either.
I decided to make it harder. What is the hardest category I can think of? Hmmm... Aha! A dressy daytime shoe for "going out".
Immediately my 4-inch, wooden sole sandals came to mind. They are gorgeous, with a beautiful rhinestone embellishment. I can wear them with jeans and a top or with a pant-suit or with a dress... Working from home, I sometimes wear them with hot pants to the office (at home, which I share with hubby - nudge, nudge, wink, wink).
Their color? Dark pink. Yup - it is clear that I like pink shoes. So shoot me!
I guess my daughter probably has a point about all the pink. Will I change it anytime soon? I can't say. Wearing pink clothes with my massess of blonde curls sort of gives me a bit more leeway in terms of what I get away with. People are more forgiving and expect less of me when I am just a "blonde with pink shoes"!
