Rewards.

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon the most gorgeous shoes.  Then I got this:

(I do believe it's valid even with a typo. ;))
 And I thought, "Yes... yes, I will..."

So, I bought myself the shoes.  Also, I'm totally and completely smitten.

 Aren't they so pretty?  Aaaahhhhh.

This cat is the reason I never do outfit photos.  She's such an attention hog.

Elsie recently wrote a really good post on work and motivation, and I totally agree that it's good to treat yourself when you've been working hard.  Maybe not always with shoes (<--- that was just for the husband's benefit ;)), but rewarding yourself leaves you feeling accomplished and ready to get back to work.  And, every once in a while, I think everyone is entitled to something a little fancy.  For me, it was the shoes.  They make me feel lovely.  And tall.  ;)

Have a great weekend, friends!  We are getting out of this house to soak up all of the gorgeous weather we can.  xoxo Katie

  1. I am definitely a believer in treating yourself, although I don't always practice what I "preach." But with a little encouragement from my husband, I just bought a super cute dress (it was also on sale, which helped).

    On another note, the shoes are super cute :)

  2. Lucky! Its still snowing where I live! I love those shoes and agree with the being taller. I'm only 5"2 and the hubs is 6"4. I like feeling taller. :) I'm glad you got a little something for yourself. :)

  15. Such pretty shoes, I'm saving up to buy them in green or red! But I was wondering; do they walk okay?
    Cause it seems a bit tricky with the wooden sole....Would be great if you could answer me, thanks! :)

  25. I totally agree... I use these little rewards (perfume, massage, etc...) as incentives to study more... for every 50 hours I self study, I get a treat.

    The shos are cute, enjoy! :)
