It's Friday (Tuesday), I'm in Love: Shoes, Vol. 3

This is the third installment in a terribly important and deeply meaningful series; you can find the first and second bits here and here.

If there's two things I know about the Man Upstairs (or Woman, or Wombat - whichever image you prefer), it's that (1) He has a keen sense of irony and (2) He appreciates a good pair of shoes. After all, if He created the Earth and all the beauty in it, surely that includes accessories?

Following this unassailable logic, I'm treating you today to a shoe two-fer which just arrived here at Pretty HQ - yes, hot on the heels (edited to add: can't believe I missed the obvious "Jesus Heels" line here - thanks, Z!) of my no-shop Lent resolution. These treats for the feet, for me & Master P respectively, were ordered on sale before my fashion fatwah went into effect, thus technically falling under the well-known "I ordered these before making a tricky and unlikely to succeed resolution and foolishly announcing it to the Interwebs" Lenten exception. You know the one - it's constantly being cited in Supreme Court opinions and such.

Ahem. Behold the cute yet sensible shoes, and the silliness that ensues when the mama tries to coax the toddler into taking cute yet sensible shoe photos:

Mine / His
As my law school homegirl noted, aren't these driving mocs just perfect for when we fire up the Trophy Wife Wagon for a drive around the Hamptons? And the wee boat shoes are obviously ideal for when we take the alas, also totally imaginary yacht out. Or, um, maybe these are just perfect comfy mom n' son flats for we hit up our next Little Gym class.

Whatever. See above about cute shoes, and tricky Lenten resolutions, and focusing on what's really important grumble grumble grumble . . .

They make Toms for toddler boys?! How did I not know. My 18month old is still a 5.5 so maybe I'll wait a bit longer... But adore! & great photos!

If these shoes were a bit higher, I would yell Jesus heels! But I still love them. And more importantly - your photography skills have improved twentyfold. Ziem Photography watch out!

CUTE SHOES. Cute all the way around. Jealous, per usual.

The very best part of this post is the photo montage. I'm dying. The stacking of cute shoes. The bowing to the foo dog. That the nubs on the driving mocs actually match said dog!

You made my day with this post.

Tippy, just for you I'm responding in the comments -thank you for putting up with my silliness. Well, silly save the foo dogs (from Target, believe it or not!), since we all know those are no laughing matter. ;-)

And see? I came back! I always do, to read comments. LOL - thank you.

Foo dogs from Target. That is serious.

So cute, Mrs. Pretty, especially the detail on the back. I love how they transition so well from the Hamptons to Little Gym. That sounds like something I have said before to Mr. G.

"Honey, think of the versatility!"
