Snazzy Nude Pumps: Worth The Pain???

 Hi My Loves!!!

This weekend I finally got a chance to wear my Nude Pumps that I bought in the sale a few months ago from JC Penney's. As soon as I saw them I fell in love with them and they were such a great price I had to get them. I have always wanted a pair like this but never found any that were a good price or exactly what I wanted. 


This weekend we did go out to dinner, it wasn't a date night but we went with a friend and I figured..... What the heck, I'm going to wear them! I think because of the outfit I was wearing them with, it made them a little more casual and perfect for the occasion.

But.... there was a problem! THEY ARE SO UNCOMFORTABLE!!!! If you are a stay at home Mommy like me, then you will know, we don't get many chances to wear such snazzy shoes like this. I got them for that odd occasion for when Jay and I go on a date night or out to dinner.

When I first put them on, they squeezed the dilly dang dooley out of my toes, maybe the sizing was wrong but when I tried them on, the next size up made my heel come out when I walked..... so I figured I would go with the ones I got. I have some tall boots that have a good size stiletto heel with a platform at the base and those are a dream to wear, easy to walk in, comfortable and I can walk just fine and dandy. NOT THESE PUMPS!!! To walk in them more than a few steps, kills my feet and I'm sure that I looked ridiculous walking. Picture a drunk penguin that needs to go to the bathroom. I'm sure that's what I looked like. It's not that I can't walk in heels, it's just they hurt so bad that every step was so painful! Haha!

I guess my feet are just way too used to slippers & flats!

Needless to say, I won't be wearing these again!! Hopefully they fit my sister :)

Anyway, here is what I wore, evil pumps and all :)


They are just sooooo cute!!!!


The makeup I was wearing was my peach & copper makeup that I posted a few days ago, incase you are wondering :)

Watch it here:




My lovely little baby bump :)




OOTD:
Cream Top: Marshalls
Tan Sweater: Gap
MEK Denim Jeans: Buckle
City Streets Nude Pumps: JC Penney's
Leopard Infinity Scarf: Express

Moral of the story is: 
Trying to be snazzy in my sexy nude pumps is not worth the pain (for me)! I'll stick to my fabulous wedges that still give me height but I can actually walk in them and feel comfortable and not look like a complete freaknuts while walking.

Thanks so much for reading!

If you are a slipper wearing Mommy, let me know so we can be slipper wearing Mommy's together!!!

And if you are a high heel wearing snazzy wazzy, props to you!!! 

Have a great day!

  8. When I wear uncomfortable heals.. it radiates up my legs and back and eventually gives me a headache.

    Atleast you look super cute, I bought a pair of nude heals... and the day I got them I got a scuff and now it wont come off.

  9. I like heels, but I stick with lower heels. These are the nude pumps I picked up from Shoe Warehouse in the fall: http://www.iheartshinythings.com/2011/02/material-girl-nude-pumps.html

    1. Not an expert on Sam's "girls", lollol.... but it's probably because she is pregnant. All the changes happening, everything fills out. However maternity bras can be really amazing and soooo comfy. I highly suggest Medela, but the most important thing, pregnant or not, is to get properly fitted, wear a high quality supportive bra, and get one that is actually made for your shape. They say 80% of women are wearing the wrong size. Many good bra shops will fit you for free.

  11. I'm a slipper mommy who wears flats to work. I probably could use the height of the heels, since I'm 5 foot even, but I need to be comfortable and I need to be sure I'm not going to trip myself when I'm taking care of baby so flats win! I'm right there with ya!

  12. I think shoes at JCP are give or take, not all good. :/ I tried on a pair of their flats the other day that were so trendy and had this satin print floral pattern, and those were uncomfortable. I rarely find any cheap shoes that are anymore. So now I just have to save money and buy for comfort and style. I have a pair of wedges from JCP that I can never wear because the straps shrank.

  13. For many years I was a high heeled, narrow toed, pump wearing girl. Then I had a baby (and another) and I stopped with the heels for about 12 years. And, guess what? All of those heels caused me to acquire a bone spur on my foot. And, now I am scheduled for surgery in April. Bummer!!!! I was a sucker for the heels, but now I spend my days in flats, flip flops, and slippers. But, those nude pumps sure are pretty!!! :)

  21. Fashion should never be painful. You only get one set of feet.. I've had problems with mine since I was 15 (genetic bunions)... take care of them or you will really regret it later in life. I ALWAYS try on shoes, and really walk in them for a few minutes... if they do not feel totally comfortable, keep looking. There will be another pair, just as cute, that actually fit. When I find a style that does, I buy them in every color.

  22. From Tantric Petals:

    Suggestion regarding the City Street Shoes: Try taking a ziplock baggie filled with water. Then put the baggie in the toe area. Then put shoes in the freezer. The shoe will stretch from the water expanding. So before you say you dislike the shoe, try this. Then try them again. You can do this multiple times until they get comfortable. If they don't then you are right your feet have changed. :)

    1. I was thinking about buying them in a 1/2 size bigger and stuffing the toes a bit with some tissue and also putting dr scholl's heel cushions to fill the gap the bigger size will create. Also I might wrap my toes in packaging tape to avoid the raw rubbing feeling. Comments? Suggestions?

  23. I admired these pumps in the catalogue for not only their chic look but the sale price of $22!! Yesterday, April 1st, the first sale day of these amazing shoes I went to go finally get myself a pair and I was so disappointed in how narrow the point is! I kept them on my feet for a half hour in the store before deciding it would have been a waste to buy the shoes even if they were cheap because I would never wear them. I was so let down that I ventured to DSW, Macys, & Aldo the same day to find a comfortable nude pump. No such finding. If anyone has a suggestion for a nude pump that is made for women with a wider width of a foot please let me know! :) Kudos to you Sam being pregnant and trying to wear these!

  24. From Imelda Marcos to Hollywood celebs, a large collection of shoes is now standard in most women's closets. The truth of the matter is that women require more shoes than men, and since we wear different pairs of shoes each pair gets less wear, and we keep our shoes longer. I find this website for Best Walking Shoes For Bunions.
