oh, the places you'll go.

last summer i started doing this silly thing so many of us ladies do. photographing my shoes. well, it wasn't always for the shoes. sometimes it was the toenail color, or the outfit, or the location/moment in time that i wanted to capture. whatever the reason, i've developed quite the collection of feet photos. it's kind of cool though to look back and reminisce all the places my feet took me this past year. care to see? what's extra cool is that for all of these snapshots, i was able to find when i blogged about something similar, if not the exact moment captured. blogs = life diary. pretty cool.

kind of funny to see the same shoes popping up over and over again. clearly, further proof that i get good use out of whatever i buy! which pair is your favorite? also, do you take these photos? or am i the cheese standing alone over here?


  1. This is such a fun way to look back on all the places you've been!

  2. I totally take photos like this! Although my occasions are not as fun it would read more like: work, work, yet another day of work. My toms would also be repeated a little too much as well! Neat post!

  3. Oh I love this idea!! So cute...mind if I steal?!

  4. Such a great way to capture where you've been! I've taken photos like this as well to remember all the new places I've stepped foot on, and also my shoes :P

  5. That's so cool to see the seasons through your feet!

  6. What a cute post! I love the idea of looking back on events through similar photos. Great shoes too!

  7. I love this! I am always taking shots like this myself!!!

  10. I love these photos. I actually recently thought I should start doing it. Too funny to know see this post. Now I REALLY want to.

  11. This is so fun- LOVE all of them but I think my faves are the BHLDN pair/nailpolish combo- so pretty!

  12. You have great taste in shoes! I think I need a pair of alpaca slippers though. They look incredibly cosy.

  13. Just a creative post! Love the shoe pics...

  14. I love this! a) you have such great shoes! b) You've done a lot this year!

  15. Love this post! I definitely have the tendency to take the same kind of pictures, especially if I'm wearing a new pair of shoes. :)

  16. i hate being in front of the camera, but i recognize how much fun it is for readers to get a peek. problem solved, adorable photos!

  17. I know so many people who take these photos! So creative. Plus you get a glimpse of the outfit! Lovess the post :)))
