Readers, I’ve been thinking that I should probably clarify something about my footwear. I’m guessing not a single reader has pondered my footwear in their spare time, but I nonetheless want to ‘fess up.
I live in downtown Chicago, and walk (when it’s not stifling hot) a few miles a day to get around via bus and subway. I don’t wear the following shoes during that walk:
I either carry my heels with me or pick shoes out from my shoe stash at work. …oh yes, shoe stash.
That’s one of my shoes stashes. Yes, that sure is a pair of slippers, because sometimes I need those too.
Anyway, I’m glad we had this talk, readers. As you’ve probably guessed from reading my blog, I’m a very practical person at the end of the day. And while I am practical, I still like to have some semblance of fashion even while commuting around town…just not in my heels.
Here are two good articles about this very issue:
Both of these have a bit more (okay, a lot more) fashionable picks than mine! It’s a bit tricky here in Chicago because it’s generally freezing cold or exceptionally hot, which I think limits us even more. Shockingly (not so shockingly?), they did not include Uggs in either article. I’ll be the first person to tell you that my waterproof Uggs are essential for my Chicago winter commuting!
Does anyone else also commute in different shoes than what they wear at work? What do you wear when commuting in extreme weather?
Happy Thursday, readers! Thanks for visiting!
