Don't Go Shopping in Sexy Boots.

I know I already have your attention from the title, but give me a bit to explain before you make assumptions. I got these fabulous black boots 3 years ago on clearance at the end of the season. Regularly $150, I scored them for $30. They are nice leather and generally pretty comfortable considering the heel is small and 3 1/2 inches. Marshall dubbed them the "sexy boots."

Yesterday I was meeting my mom, sister, and sister in law at the Cheesecake Factory to celebrate our birthdays. Avry's was the 24th, and Lia and I share a birthday on Feb 6th. What better way to celebrate than to go out to eat and shopping. I just reviewed a really cute pair of denim on my Babes and Kids blog and thought they would look cute with my boots. I think Marsh was a bit surprised to see me pull them on before I walked out the door. Generally I only wear them to church, just because I like to look cute, but most of the time, I'm all about comfort. Scrubs, sweat pants, or a pair of comfy jeans with a hoodie.

We had a wonderful time at Cheesecake Factory. We sampled all sorts of appetizers and then skipped the main entree because we were full. We had fun taking pictures in the mean time.

The cheesecake was glorious. Yes oh yes it was. My mom gave us all some money for our birthdays so after lunch we headed over to the mall to do a bit of shopping. We all got to ride in Avry's sweet new car :)

I was ok for about the first hour of shopping, then I started to feel it. My feet ached and it got progressively worse. I did say that they are quite comfortable, but I don't care who you are - when you walk distances in 3 1/2 inch heels, you are bound to start feeling it.

Then we passed Brookstone, and I saw this amazing massage chair with....a foot massager! Heaven! I was all about taking my boots off and got a nice 5 minute massage.

Then it was back on with the boots. We kept plugging along and lo and behold my feet started hurting again. After 2 1/2 hours at the mall my feet begged me to stop, but not without taking some pictures.

Yes, I do look enormous next to Avry and Lia. And yes, I am close to 6'1" with those heels on.

The last little bit walking to the car, I think I resembled someone who'd been riding a horse a bit too long. I had such a fun time with the girls that afternoon, but it is most definitely NOT worth it to wear sexy boots shopping.

LOL. I've done that before too! I wore three inch heels one day when I was student teaching and by noon I had to go out to my car and grab some flats. Looks like you had a fun time...and that cheesecake looks too yummy.

Oh Tiff, I haven't looked at your blog for a bit and a lot has happened. I can't believe that Rowan is 2!! Wowzers!! And I love the picture of you at work with the ponytail by your chin. Hilarious. And I am so sorry you decided for looks rather than comfort with the boots. I bet it will take awhile for you to be able to wear them to church even. Miss you!
