All About You – the one about shoes

All About You – the one about shoes

The sunshine always puts an extra spring in my step and this last week, my little corner of Devon has been bathed in it. This has meant lots of lovely photo opportunities (I’ve never been so excited about a sunny day since finally learning how to use my DSLR camera!) as well as a turbo boost of energy helped in part by my new-found healthy living kick. So I’ve decided the time has come to pack away the Winter woolies and start organising my spring summer wardrobe. Then it occurred to me, during an exchange of emails between Zaz the resident co-host for this fabulous All About You link party and myself, just how unstylish my foot wear really is, as much as I’d love to own a pair of Jimmy Choo’s or have the opportunity to strut my stuff on the school run in designer boots, the reality is that I’m rarely ever seen in anything other than comfy boots, wellies or flip flops, but after so many lovely comments on Mum in a nutshell, about how lucky I am to live by the sea, it struck me, it’s not what I put on my feet that makes me happy, it’s where I put them.

Life's better in flip flops, summer's nearly here and I'm feeling fine by Mum in a nutshell

So as guest co host for this weeks link party I’m linking my 3 steps to a healthier me post. I’m a week in and feel fantastic! I’m not denying myself the odd treat now and then but with help of the inspirational Deliciously Ella cook book I’ve been baking and making some amazing sugar and meat free goodies, even the family have joined in, although I may have failed to let them know that the brownies they wolfed down were 25% sweet potato!

    Ooh I sometimes wish I had better footwear too, but I find a pair of colourful Toms or some sandals are what make my feet and in turn me, happy too!!

      I’m thinking of buying Toms this year, are they comfy?

      I’m thinking of getting toms this summer, are they comfy?

    You are so right – it’s where you are in the world that matters most, not what you look like while you’re there. This said, I have a serious shoe obsession – somewhere between 100-150 pairs, which is pared down from where I used to be in the past! I guess I have always thought of beautiful shoes as affordable art (although I certainly don’t own 150 pairs of Jimmys!). Thank you so much for being my lovely co-host this week! xxx

      I own quite a few pairs of shoes (actually more of a boot obsession going on) but I always reach for the same ones, I need to step out of my comfort zone sometimes though. pleasure hosting, great to discover so many fab new blogs

    I couldn’t agree more it’s not about what’s on your feet, such a lovely message! I personally love ‘flip-flop’ season:) Thanks for co-hosting:)
