Today my 6 year old told me that I need to wear high heels more often. She was looking in my closet and said, "Why do you always wear flip flops? You should wear these (holding a high heeled shoe) more."
Maybe she is right. But then again, do a pair of heels really fit into my day to day life? Let's see....daycare, laundry, dinner, baths...these are all very glamorous I know, but they don't really call for high heels.
So then I began to think that because my day to day life doesn't call for high heels doesn't mean that I should just let them go to waste. Why don't I dust them off on the rare occasions that I do get out? The standard "momiform" that I am usually rocking these days needs a break. I think most of my solid color tees, capris, and flip flops have about had it. Thank god cooler weather is just around the corner.
So tonight I made a pledge to myself to try to step it up every now and then. I will put makeup on AND curl my hair...imagine that! I will decide to go with the heels instead of the comfortable, more sensible option. I will treat myself to a pedicure. I will buy something for myself and not feel guilty about it.
Maybe I need to start looking to my 6 year old for direction when it comes to fashion. After all, she is always looking to me for everything else.
