Today there were no interesting conversations within earshot, so my thoughts and my eyes wandered to the shoes. There were all sorts of shoes and most were appropriate for the weather. There were new shiny black boots with heels, new looking uggs (maybe fuggs, I didn't see the label...regardless though, they make much more sense in the middle of an Ottawa winter than they do in LA), salt damaged brown boots (those were mine)...then I noticed a pair of pink, strappy ballet flats. Not at all sensible for the day. Her feet were clearly wet and therefore cold. My eyes wandered upwards to see what kind of person would be wearing such non-sensible (though cute...and complimented with a pair of pink stripey socks) shoes. Much to my surprise, this person looked nothing like I thought she would. In fact, she looked more like a person who would wear sensible shoes. Maybe not a pair of giant sorels, but something at least weather appropriate.
This got me thinking. Do I want to be the kind of person who people look at and see "aah...wears sensible shoes"? In the middle of winter - you bet your aspercreme I do. Cold feet are not my friends. But for the most part, I would much rather be the one in the cool shoes. Not the really high heels, not the ones you know required a good chunk of the monthly income, but the pair that you look at and think "great shoes". Mmm....great shoes...must...resist going out and buying shoes...
And so, I leave you with what kind of fall shoes I should wear. It says I need class and edge. Not sure I am very edgy...but I can work on that.

Motorcycle chic meets uptown.
You have the class and edge to wear this boot.
