The Quest for My Swagger Pt 1: The Shoes

I’ve always considered myself a Sexy Mami (even before having a kid).  Check out the various definitions that Urban Dictionary has for the term mami and you’ll see why.  Basically, mami is a term that can be used to describe a hot chick.  So, ever since I found my self esteem (and that was eons ago, I can tell you right where I was standing and who helped me find the treasure but that's another story for another time), I’ve thought that described me.

Enter pregnancy.  I still sported heels while pregnant and found myself at a loss for when I was put on bed rest and had to go to appointments because, what to wear on my feet? I was real upset when I had to sport cute, fancy flip flops for my baby shower because heels were not allowed and I had nothing in my closet.  After I gave birth, I didn’t want to wear heels.  Primarily because I had the fear of dropping the kid.

My feet got used to lower heels or wedges.  Now I am trying to get my sexy swagger back and find a dilemma: my feet are not used to heels!  Today I sported Beth to work.  Let me give you a little background.  Robin sent me over to Shoe Dazzle.   I love it.  And if you love shoes, you should definitely check them out (use my link and every time 3 of my friends sign up, I get a free pair of shoes!).  But I digress.  Please see a picture of Beth below and bask in the cuteness (also, a percentage of the sales of that shoe went towards breast cancer research so this was a win-win!).

I love that they have names for the shoes.  I mean yes, when we talk about our shoes we now sound like we’re in a love relationship with another woman but, who cares, right?  I wore Beth to work today.  I was sitting there looking cute at work.  Then my feet started hurting.  As a matter of fact, I think that one of them started cramping.  Could this be?  I couldn’t even sit while wearing cute heels!  This is ridiculous!

When I walk, I feel cute and confident.  My feet don’t hurt.  Why are my feet uncomfortable when I am sitting down, I ask you?  I realize that I need a guide to attaining back my previous title.  This brings me to rule #1 in me getting my mami swagger back:

  1. Wear high heeled shoes to work at least twice a week in order to work my foot out and get it back into sexy mami shape!

More rules in the days to come.  Stay tuned…
