For instance, the shoes I wear through the terminal and on the plane differ from the shoes I may wear to site see in Paris or have a girls night out in Barcelona. The shoes I wear to run 6 miles may differ from the shoes I wear to have lunch with my first grader or an important business meeting with my bestfriend/business partner.
Now don’t get me wrong I do have shoes that are interchangeable and work for many occasions but I also have some that just won’t transition well between the many parts of my day.
As mothers we sometimes want to be responsible and save, save, save BUT as women it is hard to turn down a cute shoe especially if they are having a cute sale lol.
I’m here to tell you that it’s okay to treat yourself sometimes, hence, my first pair of Prada’s!
I’ll never forget I was at Phipps Plaza in Atlanta and Saks was calling my name, now I was hesitant at first but then I saw that they were having a 50% off sale so my eyes were suddenly wide open and my feet were dancing to their own tune.
I tried on my first pair of Prada pumps and felt like Cinderella…. I just couldn’t take them off and for a retail price of $700 with 50% off I couldn’t leave those gorgeous shoes there without a place to call home (what I told myself to sleep better at night).
Point being that it’s okay to splurge but be smart! To date they are the most comfortable pair of heels I own and they make me feel sophisticated and sexy simultaneously so I think it’s a win-win situation.
You may think you can’t afford a certain retailer because of its reputation but you should check out Nordstrom Rack or Saks Off Fifth for designer brands and pocket friendly rates and don’t be afraid to walk into these luxury brand stores and go straight to the sale rack because guess what I DO!!!!
Being a Fly Mom isn’t just about playing the part it’s about looking the part in whatever makes you feel like your best self.
Build up your new clothing, shoes, accessory, even perfume collection in a way that not only fits your life but fits your budget!
