I do. It’s up there with my first kiss and my first high school crush. I used to spend the better part of my weekend wearing my green suede six hole lace ups. I loved the smell of them, the comfort, the clean yellow stitching and more importantly the memories I made wearing them.
This weekend Donovan bought me a pair of ox blood 8 hole lace ups. I’ve been taken back in time. I can’t believe I have a pair of “iconic” shoes sitting on my bed right now! I have mixed emotions. I don’t think I’m bad ass enough to pull off that look, like I did with such ease 15 years ago. I certainly don’t have ripped jeans, grungy t-shirts and a bad attitude to wear with them anymore. I suppose I could always work around that. Rules are meant to be broken aren’t they? I could turn the ragged, grungy look of yesterday year into a smarter chic look for a mom who is still very much young at heart. I can already visualize it. I’m hoping it looks as trendy in my head as it will in real life….
