My Shoe Confession!

As much as I love the ankle booties I purchased especially for my London vacation, I have a confession to make! One I did not want to admit earlier especially to B because I knew he'd give me his "I told you so" look. takbole

So I silently endured the first few days of our vacation wearing my bootie heels. I braved through the pain and discomfort because I love the way my heels looked on me. But as awesome as they were, I hereby sadly admit that my lovely booties were just not comfortable enough to withstand the endless walking we did while vacationing.

Me and my booties

Usually, I'd bring two pairs of shoes including a pair of
sneakers while on vacation. This recent one however, I was quite strict with my packing and left my sneakers behind; refusing to add additional weight to my luggage. Truth was, I was planning a shopping spree and needed all the space I could get to stuff in my buys later!

Gorgeous ankle booties from Liz Claiborne!

To be fair to my lovely ankle booties, I did enjoy wearing and walking around in them for the first three days. Day 4 saw the pain starting to kick in and by the end of Day 5; I returned to our hotel with a pair of Footglove shoes from Marks & Spencer! I finally surrendered to the call of a new pair of comfy flat shoes since there was still plenty of walking, shopping and sight-seeing remaining on our agenda. penat

A little shorter with my Footglove flats

Anyway, they're off-white and the last pair available was in my size 7; kind of meant to be I guess! And yes, I did appreciate the immediate immense difference it made to my feet and I do admit that I walked a lot faster and easier with my new comfy
women's flats. malu

So you win Love and I do deserve that "
I told you so". Worry no more however for I will DEFINITELY go back to practising my two-pairs-shoes-including-sneakers rule on our next getaway! When will that be? rindu

Life Ramblings,  November 03, 2010 3:42 PM

those booties are incredibly gorgeous and you've a good eye for style Marzie.

Life Ramblings,  November 03, 2010 3:42 PM

but when i travel, i don't think i can wear those high heel booties. Traveling can be rough, especially on the feet if you're walking endlessly with those heels.

Life Ramblings,  November 03, 2010 3:47 PM

When I must spend much of a trip walking all day long,my best best is still flat sensible shoes.

*Michael,  November 05, 2010 7:26 AM

:* :* :*

*Michael,  November 05, 2010 7:27 AM

Good tips for traveling and walking. :* :* :*

*Michael,  November 05, 2010 7:27 AM

I usually travel light and pack the minimum.

*Michael,  November 05, 2010 7:27 AM

Love the first photo!

Evan's Mom,  November 07, 2010 2:14 AM

They're gorgeous indeed. :*

Evan's Mom,  November 07, 2010 2:15 AM

I used to be able to walk all day with high heels, but I guess now my feet are getting old... prefer flat for a long walk ;)

Evan's Mom,  November 07, 2010 2:16 AM

I'd either bring sneakers, flat shoes or sandals when traveling... depends on my destination of course... plus a pair of pumps when traveling for work :)

Mariuca,  November 07, 2010 8:48 AM

Hey EM! Sneakers are the best for walking, no denying that and I only bring sandals for places with warm climate! When are u gonna go for another exotic work cum vacay trip? He he… :)

Mariuca,  November 07, 2010 8:54 AM

I think so too EM, esp love the colour! :)

Mariuca,  November 07, 2010 8:55 AM

Ahhhhh not the big O word hahahahah! Yeah I saja wan to look nice but still couldn’t tahan the pain EM, my bad! ;)

Ayie,  November 07, 2010 12:46 PM

before I usedto mind how it looks on me but now I am being very careful with heels eversince I got pregnant. When baby's walking around on his own and mommy not needing to carry him much anymore then I can go use my heels. ;) ;)

Bingkee,  November 10, 2010 1:01 PM

Those shoes are fab, but they're a killer if I walk on them on a sightseeing tour. I'm the kind of gal who loves comfort so I can enjoy my tour.

foongpc,  November 14, 2010 2:08 AM

Haha!! U want to be like Mariah Carey ah? Only wear high heels and zero flats! LOL!!

foongpc,  November 14, 2010 2:08 AM

Walking so much during vacation how to tahan even though u r not FBB like Mariah? Haha!!

foongpc,  November 14, 2010 2:09 AM

You go shopping must walk fast fast sure must wear flats lah, how long u can take it with high heels? LOL!

foongpc,  November 14, 2010 2:10 AM

Ayie, Mariah Carey dance on stage while prego also wore high heels!! Haha! Dat;s why she fell! LOL!!

Mariuca,  November 14, 2010 3:19 PM

What to do Foong, me stubborn muahahaha!

Mariuca,  November 14, 2010 3:20 PM

Yay to wanting to be like Mariah hahahahahha! She wears zero flats kah? I wear flats oso Foong but the trip special case mah.. ;)

Mariuca,  November 14, 2010 3:21 PM

LOL at not FBB like Mariah, thank goodness!! Dat’s why la I didn’t wan to admit to B initially, no wan hear him lecture me, which he did anyway… ;)

Mariuca,  November 14, 2010 3:22 PM

Lol if I’m prego surely I won be wearing heels la and I def won’t be dancing on stage hahahahahha!

Mariuca,  November 14, 2010 3:23 PM

He he he, in the end I had to succumb to flat shoes Bing Kee, but this still won’t stop me from trying to find the perfect heels that are comfy for long distance walk on tours muahahaha!
