I’ve almost been 23 for three months, and thus far it has been an exciting time. I officially feel like a 20-something—a term I used to loathe but now accept with a bit of laughter and understanding.
When I was 22 I was graduating college. I was getting started with a job. It was all exciting and new. Now a year has passed since my graduation and it has all really set in. I officially feel like I’m a young professional, a growing woman, and at times it is exciting, but it can often be very daunting and scary.
But, this isn’t a blog where I talk ad nauseam about those scarier elements like income angst, my painful single lady status, and thinking of getting a dog. Instead, like many blogs, it’s where you get to see all the good things happening in my life (promise, it’s not alllll perfect *wink wink*). So, I was thinking: what can be better than seeing my new grown-up shoes?!
I’ve always appreciate the beauty of shoes, but until recently I used to be a purse person. However, I’ve slowly realized that only having a few footwear choices isn’t great when you’re constantly wearing them down, so I’ve started investing in some nice purchases (like the Steve Madden Cutout Booties)
I saw this pair at TJ Maxx and practically died on site. I love their sexy simplicity and the mixture of textures. The gold bar across the toe adds a luxe-essence. The shape is flirty, feminine, yet mature. The heels are high enough to make the legs look amazing, but not too high so one teeters like they’re coming out of a loud club.
These heels will have a great time highlighting my denim skinny jeans and black dresses.
