Unwilling to continue trudging through the next 20 weeks of pregnancy in Havaianas flip-flops or my Birkenstock-ish Neckerman sandals, I finally took the plunge and purchased my first pair of rubber shoes: Crocs.
Having pretty much lived in flat shoes for the past 15 weeks of my pregnancy, I am damn sick of pik-piaking everywhere lor. Hubs suggested slip-proof Crocs wedges or heels for maximum comfort and safety, so we went to Plaza Singapura on Sunday and – with Uncle Henrie’s fashionable input – picked out this pair:
Crocs Cyprus in Silver/Lavender
The silver is versatile enough to go with all my maternity clothes, and it looked fabulous with my bootcut GAP maternity jeans when I tried it on at the store. And at S$58.50, it’s less than half the price of ALDO or Nine West heels. Granted, it’s not as sexy as a pair of 3″ strappy leather heels, but pregnant folks don’t have much options ok.
I’m sorry I can’t be your typical mom who lives in flat shoes and can’t be happier with the lack of fuss. I love my heels and I would continue wearing my knee-high leather boots with 3.5″ heels if my tummy wasn’t in the way of me pulling up them on.
It’s virtually impossible (to me anyway) to dress up nicely and complete your outfit with a pair of flat shoes. Women should wear heels. And women who can’t walk in heels should be sent to some bootcamp where they learn how to walk confidently like a proper woman.
Very gender stereotypical, I know, but heels instantly make you look slimmer and taller as well as improving your posture! What’s not to like?!
So, spot me strutting about town in my rubber shoes some time soon – wearing my maternity support band underneath it all, of course.
