The other morning I was getting my gym bag ready for the day and pulled out a pair of shoes that I had switched out of 2 weeks ago. I was shocked - I had actually forgotten about them and they are my every day shoes! I had been wearing them for the majority of the year until recently since temperatures have dropped, (which is why I hadn't removed them from my bag), but the fact that I had forgotten I even owned them, completely shocked me. It really showed me that I had too much. Shoes alone, I have 42 pairs that I have counted and logged (I'm sure I'm forgetting a few) and my goal is to take it down to 20.
As I mentioned before, we supposedly only wear 20% of our wardrobe and with that in mind, I should be down to about 8 pairs of shoes, but ... let's not get crazy now ;)
For those interested, these are Cole Haan silver cap toe "Bria" wedges with the Nike Air soles - picture not my own.
