. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Ugly Shoes

November 20, 2012

Ugly Shoes

shirt: old navy  jeans: kohls  wedges: old navy  scarf: DIY

There are many times when I know Chris disagrees with my fashion choices.
Like a few weeks ago when he said,
"I was surprised so many people said they liked this outfit. I think it looks silly."


And here is another example: 

I bought these wedges for under $4 at Old Navy a year or so ago.
They felt really high for me at first, so I wasn't quite sure how often I'd wear them. 
And truthfully I've only worn them a few times because I'm having a hard time finding how to wear them. 



A few weeks after I bought them Chris and I were at Old Navy and we walked passed these shoes and he said, "Those are SO ugly, who would buy them?" 

"Um. . .. I already did." 

Needless to say he couldn't understand why I would and thankfully I could justify it by saying it was cheaper than his lunch that day.

Men will never understand. I love your shoes. That price is even better! Love the outfit!

Sarah Burton said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love these shoes! I have the light gray pair myself. I'm kind of stuck, too...I only wear them with pants. Either skinnies rolled up like you or wide legged.

I am having deja vu ;) back to our conversation the other day. Don't worry dear, you rock those outfits! Cute!

those bootie wedges are adorable!!! my husband and i don't always agree on fashion either, you are not alone haha!!

Breenah said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I think I like them. Maybe they'd look good with bootcut jeans? Love the bright outfit he didn't like.

hahahaha. He cracks me up!

i have a thing for "ugly shoes" . my sister always teases me that "ugly shoes" are like stay dogs to me, i feel the need to give them a home . :)

Laura said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha this made me laugh. I can't believe the good deals you find!! And I also admire your boldness to try new things with fashion. I would never know how to wear those shoes but you pull them off with this outfit. Don't listen to Chris :)

That is so funny- my boyfriend (also named Chris!) does the same thing. He makes fun of me for saying "that's the STYLE, Chris" whenever we're out and he sees something "ugly". Guys just know nothing! And I love those shoes!

Chrissy + Nate said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Oh husbands!!! Gotta love 'em. Have a good week lady!

Lauren Shaw said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Jim and I also differ dramatically. For example, he thinks colored skinny jeans are "ridiculous." Seriously though, what do they know?! You are so stylish and you rock those $4 shoes. I mean, I bet you got more compliments on them than he got on his lunch! : )

Those shoes are DARLING! They're so so cute. I found you through the GFC blog hop, and I'm loving your blog so far! Your outfits are adorable, and I too am obsessed with statement necklaces. Like a lot.

I'm your newest follower :) Entered the giveaway too!

As you said last week,fashion advice from boys usually makes no sense.
I'd have trouble styling those too though!

Annie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I think you styled those wedges perfectly! I've had a similar pair for 2 years and never wear them because I don't know how to style them either...but you make me want to break them out :)

haha, this made me laugh because my husband can be the same way about my fashion...the thing is, they just don't know! some things dan used to HATE now he likes simply because he's seen me wear it a few times. for example, my new owl sweater that dan hates will probably be his favorite in a month. because i intend to wear it ALL. THE. TIME. :)

Sarah said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hhahah I have similar shoes and my hubs doesn't like them either! I love them and they are actually quite comfortable! I say rock 'em girl!

Niki Caron said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hahaha guys crack me up! I like the shoes!

Always Maylee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha, you and Chris are so funny. When I ask my husband what he thinks of something, he'll say "do you want me to be honest, or do you want me to answer a certain way". Oh men.

Have a very happy Thanksgiving my friend! :)

xo, Yi-chia

Ash said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That's hilarious... my husband is the same way. Only his famous line is, "It'll have to grow on me." And it usually does =) But, like you, I have the comeback that I paid so little for my stuff that he can't really complain. Love the outfits!

Francesca Giusti said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Pass to my blog and if it likes you follow me too, I will be so glad :D

Haha I get that from my fiance all the time! Men are silly. I think they are cute!

Love your blog! :)

Both pairs of shoes/outfits are adorable!! Hopefully they will grow on your hubs or else you'll just have to know that you've got better taste in shoes than he does :)

Heidi-and-Seek said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha my husband does this when we're shopping, I'll show him something i love and he'll be really skeptical about it, and then when I wear it he'll change his mind. Silly husband ;)

Franziska said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

don't worry, you aren't the only one out there that this happens to. My boyfriend has been telling me I dress like a grandma. I beg to differ.

hahahah i LOVE those shoes and i totally know that my fashion is a WIN when my husband goes, "UGH what is that?!"

Whitney said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Garrett quite often questions the things I like and what is considered "fashionable". Oh well, they are boys! I like the shoes and I love the polka dot/mustard jeans combo!
