New Shoes make EVERYTHING better.

So I realize it has been quite sometime since my last blog post, but like everything else in my life, it has been put on hold due to being inconveniently sick.  A few weeks ago I got really sick, and last week I found out it was all thanks to a virus called Epstein-Barr, or "mono."  Needless to say this last week has been, well, miserable. 
However, rather than writing a blog dedicated to something no one should ever have to experience and wouldn't want to hear about, I have decided to show you something that has brought lost of happiness this week. NEW SHOES!

I went on somewhat of a spree and bought three pairs of new heels I am IN LOVE with. Now all I need is a chance to wear them :)
These came from eBay, and I love them because the remind of something Allie would wear in The Notebook. They are Colin Stuart peep-toe pumps and I am anticipating wearing them with everything. Regardless of what you have heard, eBay is a GREAT place to find shoes as long as you know exactly what size you need.

I also bought two new pairs of shoes from the coveted market DSW.  Shopping online at DSW is great, but if you ever get a chance to go to a store you MUST go.  It is extremely overwhelming but extremely rewarding.  Half of my closet is filled with shoes purchased from here.  They have great designer stuff at perfect prices and their sale room is something to behold.

These are going to wonderful for fall! 
And finally, my new nude pumps! I am extremely excited about these.  I have been looking for nude colored pumps for ages and I have fallen in love.  They are just the perfect color to wear with everything, but they have a precious texture to them which makes them so much more fun and interesting than just the plain colored pumps I had been looking at.

So I know I should not put too much emphasis on material things, because yes the things of this world are fleeting.  However, today the simple joys of new, pretty things is getting me through the misery of mono and I am thankful for the men and women God created to design these beautiful accessories for my feet.
The other thing I am thankful for is all this bed rest which is allowing me to finish reading The Help, but that will be a post for another day.
