I hate shopping. Detest it with a passion. I’m not one of those girls who enjoys going into malls for hours and hours walking store to store trying on everything and anything. I have more of a manly approach when it comes to shopping; I have an idea in my head of what I’m looking for, I then set off out to the shops, if I don’t see anything I like within 5 (10 at a push!) minutes, I walk out. I then get pretty grumpy. If I do see something I like, I’m in & out as fast as I can. My record? 7 minutes buying over 8 items. Impressive if I do say so myself!
Work attire is slightly different. You have to look a certain way, dress according to rules & be presentable. It’s always a nightmare trying to decide what to wear for work. Since getting my new job (more on that in another post!) I have been buying new clothes weekly just so that I’m not wearing the same sort of things week in & week out. My bank balance doesn’t like me, but at least I look presentable.
The worst thing for me though? Shoes.
I hate shopping for shoes. For work, I’d never wear really expensive shoes. I like to keep the expensive shoes for outside of work, instead, I buy a few pairs of cheaper shoes to wear to work & don’t really matter how badly damaged they end up because they weren’t expensive. This has resulted in me buying a new pair of shoes for work practically every other month. It’s pretty annoying now though!
I’ve been looking around at various places for shoes, normally I wear black ones as it goes with everything but I have even seen some brown or silver shoes that I like the look of & it’s so confusing trying to figure out what looks better! Over the years, I’ve started to hate wearing heels. I’m already pretty tall for a girl anyway (5’7), I find heels are pretty pointless unless it’s a special occasion or a night out so any work shoes have to be flats. Everyone knows real women wear flats, right?
Do you get stuck trying to figure out what to wear to work? Do you prefer heels to work over flats? Help me out with shoe suggestions for work! Ones that I can actually walk in!
