What Do Your Shoes Really Say About You? NickMom #Motherfunny #shop

I like to think of myself as a #MotherFunny (you know, a funny mother). Well at least I know how to laugh at myself. And I know my family and friends laugh at with me all the time. One thing is for sure, I do love to laugh. It’s why I love NickMom so much.

When my son is done watching Nickelodeon and he’s in dreamland and I’ve got everything ready for the next morning (which is around 10pm), I get some “mom” time with Nick to get my laugh on.

I do think moms have a unique sense of humor. We have to really. We deal with bodily fluids, no time for ourselves, multi-tasking on a grand scale, because we have so much to do every day, and add in being chauffeur/nurse/teacher/counselor, to name a few… Every. Single. Day.

If I didn’t laugh, I’d just ball up like a baby and cry and never get out of bed. Okay, maybe it wouldn’t be that bad, but seriously, laughter is what gets me through those tough days. NickMom gets it. Like this LOL photo of what toilet paper is used for. Tee-Hee.

I also love this ‘What Do Your Shoes Really Say About You?’ chart on NickMom.com….

I’m a shoe wh-wh-wh… hoarder. Did you think I was gonna say something else? Being the shoe addict lover I am, this got me to thinking about what the shoes I wear often say about me.

Hmmmmm, let’s see:

#MotherFunny NickMom what does your shoes say about youStilettos

I can’t afford Louboutins, and even if I could, I’d rather buy several pairs of shoes for the price I could buy one pair of Louboutins. #JustSaying. But I do love a good pair of stilettos. Yes, they kill my feet, but dang they sure do make my legs look good.

They can be wedges, kitten heel, stilettos, or somewhere in between, slip-ons or ankle strap (no, I don’t like the ankle strap because I like being tied down – no bondage here – but I’m not crazy about my feet and I feel like the strap visually separates my foot from my leg, so the attention is drawn towards my legs, not my pitifully abused feet from years of wearing high-heeled shoes).

What they really say is, “I didn’t have time for a pedi”.

I live 400+ miles from a beach, but I’m a laid-back, beach lovin’, Margaritiville singin’ wannabe. I’m really just preparing for the day I retire to a beach and become a real beach bum.

And finally, I have to add my footwear of choice in the fall and winter months — the boot.

#MotherFunny NickMom what does your shoes say about youBoots

These boots were made for walking…. well, if the zombie apocalypse hits and I turn into a zombie, I hope I’m wearing boots. Since zombies do a LOT of walking. But my luck, I’d be roaming the earth as the undead in a pair of stilettos!

If I did survive the zombie apocalypse, my legs would be protected, and my feet would be comfortable outrunning the (slow-butted) zombies.

So there’s some of my favorite shoes and what they say about me. What do YOUR shoes say about you?

Be sure to connect with NickMom to keep up with all the laughs.

  1. Leilani says:

    I wear mostly TOMS or shoes similar in style to TOMS. So my shoes say that I like to stay comfy and casual. 🙂

  2. I don’t see flip flops or sneakers on there. That’s my style!

  3. Mellisa says:

    I was looking hard for flip-flops on your list cause that’s my style…lol!

  4. Angela says:

    I think mine say that comfort is my priority.

  5. Vonnie says:

    I agree with Angela…..comfort is my priority. Been there done that with the “Yes, they kill my feet, but dang they sure do make my legs look good.” 🙂

  6. Melanie says:

    lol!!! My favorite pair of shoes are definitely my stilettos. Sure they kill my feet but my legs look GOOD when I wear them! lol I love what they have for crocs lol I think my favorite shoes are my wedge flip flops. Fashion AND comfort! 😉

  7. Emily says:

    Lol oh gosh, I probably have one pair of each!

  8. Jenn says:

    We need flip flops on the list!

  9. The Mom Jen says:

    Great post, so cute! I wear flip flops 90% of the year and I’m about 30 miles from the beach. 10% of the year I wear Uggs mostly because I can’t find a matching pair of socks! 😉

  10. Alaina Bullock says:

    My main priority is comfort when it comes to my shoes. I’d have to say sandals are my absolute favorites to wear!

  11. Grace Hodgin says:

    I loved this post and laughed at what shoes really say. I wear my Juil sandals until it is too cold to wear them. I’m tempted to wear them with socks but my family has promised to disown me if I do so I switch to clogs.

  12. Tammy says:

    apparently I’m insane since more than half of the shoes in my closet are Crocs :/

  13. Tosh says:

    So that was really #MotherFunny! LOL! I totally love my flip flops in summer.

  14. Carrie says:

    I wear flip-flops and slippers…pretty sure that means I’m a stay-at-home-mom, lol!

    PS – you have some SUPER cute shoes…jealous!

  15. Amber says:

    LOL Thats funny. I wear just slip on shoes mostly. The ones with skulls on them and just little ballet shoes. Or boots. Im very diverse in my shoes. 🙂

  16. Linda H. says:

    Love “What does your shoes really say about you” lol

  17. Kelsey Apley says:

    HAHAHAHAHA This is so funny!!! I love the YOu are trying out for the Real Housewives!!! I love them so I guess I better go buy some shoes ;-)!

  18. I used to like the Spice Girls, so I guess it’s OK to wear my favorite wedges. They’re tall but still let me stay comfortable and balanced and they’re super cute. Definitely my faves! 🙂

  19. Marcie W. says:

    I just love the hilarious explanations behind each shoe choice. I can mostly be found in flip flops or gym shoes.

  20. Angela says:

    I typically wear flip flops, so I guess they say “I’m too lazy to tie shoes”! 🙂

  21. susana says:

    love this review, soooo funny and true!!! And im also a shoe addict, need more room in my closet!!!!

  22. OMGosh HILARIOUS – love this!! Especially your “walking” boots haha!

  23. When I have to wear shoes, they’re gym shoes. I do have a nice pair of boots, but won’t be able to wear them until after baby comes for several reasons 1) swelling 2) not being able to wrestle them on around my stomach and 3) swelling 🙂

    I hate wearing shoes at all. I’d rather walk around barefoot, although that really doesn’t work here in Chicago during the winter.

  24. Janel says:

    Haha, love the “don’t have time for a pedi”! I live in “beach” shoes even though there are no beaches near me.

  25. corinne says:

    This was cute! My show style has definitely changed. I used to be a stiletto/sandal gal, but since having kids that run around like crazy people, I’m a laid back flip flop mommy. I have my running shoes, but I live in flip flop. To my credit, I live in Hawaii so nothing is really far from a beach

  26. I’m a barefoot or running shoe kind of gal. Flip-flops occasionally.

  27. Stephanei says:

    Haha! I almost always wear flip flops and flats. Which basically says “Im too lazy to find matching socks”.

  28. Cat Davis says:

    That’s funny! My shoes aren’t on the list. I pretty much live in flip flops or go bare foot.

  29. deb says:

    Summer its flip flops and once the snow flys…usually around mid to late October I change to boots.

  30. hahah! I can’t believe they left off flip flops! Just plain lazy!!! 🙂

  31. lisa says:

    I wear tennis shoes all the time.They’re comfortable.

  32. Those are so funny! I love the part about Crocs meaning you’re insane. For the most part I just wear tennis shoes or flip flops. I like to be comfortable in shoes.

  33. Kathy says:

    My shoes tell me that I am overworked and under dressed!

  34. Amy Adams says:

    I’m a flip-flop girl through and through, only because I HAVE to wear shoes; otherwise, I would be barefoot. In the winter I’m like you, in boots (Uggs); easy to get on and off!

  35. Linda Ursin says:

    Trainers: My knees hurt
    Ankle boots: This multi-creative heathen witch means business
    Winter boots: It’s too cold outside for anything else

  36. Susan Neal says:

    Very funny! I’m usually to be found in trainers, walking boots or wellies, because when I’m not indoors I’m usually walking the dogs 🙂

  37. Summer Davis says:

    I grew up in Juneau, Alaska so my shoe of choice used to be open toed wedges. Makes total sense, right? Now I live in North Carolina and I just want to find a pair of boots that fit my enormous, muscular calves. 🙂 LOVE the shoes in your first shot, can you send them to me, please?

  38. Too funny! Well, since my favorite pair of shoes are a pair of killer pointy-toed Carlos Santanas with a kitten heel, I’m clearly out to attract Don Draper. And, seriously, what single straight woman wouldn’t be out to attract Don Draper? 😉

  39. Sheri says:

    I’m all about comfort. I like running shoes and flip flops.

  40. Corina Ramos says:

    I love that infographic Donna!

    I know what you mean about moms not getting time for ourselves! I came down with the flu and had to drive my kids on Saturday for homecoming stuff…fever runny nose, and all!

    I’m a flip flop kind of gal! I have heels but don’t go to the grocery store in them. I also have a pair of converse…yep I’m old school :).

    Thanks for sharing hon! Have a great new week!

  41. Irish Carter says:

    This was great and super funny. I love flip flops. I used to wear stilettos but now I would end up in bed for a week…ugghhhhh LOL

  42. Almost year round you will be able to find me in flip-flops!

  43. Rachel says:

    That is awesome. My style is 1. Whatever is flat, 2. Whatever is affordable, 3. Whatever is comfortable, and 4. Whatever I trip the least in. I’m not sure if I even own heels? Maybe. I have a lot of shoes.

  44. This post is hilarious! I used to wear stilettos but they hurt my feet way too much and I am clumsy so I’ve switched over to kitten heels and my favorites Sperry’s. …So one day I hope to live on a boat and switch over to flip flops when I dock 🙂

  45. chrissy c says:

  46. Courtney says:

    I used to only wear sneakers – now all I wear is flats 🙂
