Because Bloggers Wear Shoes Too.

by Katelyn Block on July 9, 2012 · 25 comments

Sometimes people forget that bloggers are real people. That we do other things besides take pictures, edit them, and blog about our lives that can often seem too planned out. That we have real jobs (wait, what? you have a degree in something?), take classes, and have boyfriends, husbands, and kids (or for you men, girlfriends, wives, and kids).

Sometimes even I forget these things. Wait, I do other things besides blog? Stunning realization happening over here.

But in all truth, I do other things than wear my Nike’s to the gym and walk around my house (and outside – what can I say, I’m such a granola hippie) barefoot. A girl’s gotta keep her closet in shape as much as she has to keep her butt in shape. So, I buy myself (sometimes too much) closet additions on HauteLook. I wasn’t paid to say this, in fact I paid them a hefty amount of money in the last month for all the stuff I bought; this is just pure, unadulterated love. I could buy things on HauteLook all day if I wasn’t such a broke college student. But I guess I’m really not that poor, because I bought myself some shoes.

My birthday is coming up. July 30th. Feel free to send me a cake around that time if you love me lots. I love cake, and I love you even more.

I consider this an early gift to myself, and I’ll say the same for every bowl of froyo I have from now until that date. Always gift yourself. It feels great.

These sandals make me think of Bermuda – I went there on a family cruise back in the eighth grade, and it still sticks in my mind when I think of anything tropical. It was my grandparents’ 50th Anniversary celebration; the one and only cruise I’ve ever been on. Good thing I rode up and down the elevators the whole time, because it was so worth it. I also fell in love with a boy that wears Polos and lives on Staten Island. We totally connected over pool towels.

I’ll be wearing these gems to my drawing class that starts today. Bringing in the breeze of Bermuda, and dreaming of a place worthy of a Free People magazine spread. I hope the other students think I’m artsy.

Fill in the blank: Because Bloggers ___________ Too.

I’ve been on several cruises, and the ones that I took during the middle school years – I too, fell in love with boys. something magical about those cruises & the limited selection of boys. ha

Hannah July 9, 2012 at 9:59 AM

I love those shoes! Shopping is my calling, I think I should be a pro :)


Danielle @ Clean Food Creative Fitness July 9, 2012 at 10:05 AM

I am in love with those shoes! I get HauteLook emails daily and its totally dangerous!


Katelyn Block July 11, 2012 at 12:44 PM

Dangerous is right — my poor bank account is suffering!


Calee July 9, 2012 at 1:07 PM

Haha I love that you used the same pic of the shoes 3 times to drive your point home. ;)

… because bloggers wear makeup too. (Urban Decay Eyeshadow. Stat!)


Katelyn Block July 9, 2012 at 1:45 PM

Haha, it’s three different pictures! Same setup.

Ashley @ AlmostVegGirlie July 9, 2012 at 1:42 PM

Um, how adorable are those sandals?! Happy early birthday, mine’s on July 27th! I think I’ll be buying myself something soon as an early birthday present too…


Katelyn Block July 11, 2012 at 12:47 PM

Birthday twinnnsss!


Caroline July 9, 2012 at 2:05 PM

Love those shoes!


Hannah July 9, 2012 at 2:06 PM

Those shoes are so cute, Katelyn. I totally support buying stuff for yourself near/on your birthday.

I just thought that I’d add that girls can have girlfriends/wives and guys can have boyfriends/husbands…(well, sadly only in a few states for same-sex marriage). I think it’s important not to forget that!


Katelyn Block July 9, 2012 at 2:17 PM

That’s so valid! How could I forget. Right on, girl.


Caitlin July 9, 2012 at 2:09 PM

I love fashion and SHOES. So I love this post. Also, bloggers eat french fries too :D


Lisa July 9, 2012 at 2:20 PM

Love them. I always treat myself in a big way when my birthday comes around, its bad.
We deserve it though!
And I hope you will be posting your pictures of your drawings because I am always super jealous of people who are able to draw! How it it my uncle is an architect and I can’t draw a cat? Sad how that world works;)


Katelyn Block July 11, 2012 at 12:48 PM

Haha I just got a picture of my first one!! It’ll be up later.


Jody - Fit at 54 July 9, 2012 at 2:41 PM

So cute! Wish I could wear cute shoes! I have very very very wide feet with bunions so I can’t fir in most cute shoes & I hide the feet anyway due to the UGLY huge bunions!


Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile July 9, 2012 at 3:57 PM

Can I have those? Way too cute.


Vanessa July 9, 2012 at 4:24 PM

Whattt?! We have the SAME birthday’s! And I love your rationale on randomly buying yourself things because that was EXACTLY my thoughts this past weekend when I entered Lululemon, which I just *happened* to be unintentionally walking by—NOT ;) and bought myself the cutest pair of crops! Love them. It’s why I work, or at least why I tell myself I work as I write this message on my couch because I just got home from work, and eating overnight oats. YuM. Love the shoes!

V :)


Katelyn Block July 11, 2012 at 12:49 PM

TWINNNSSS! Ah! Love Lululemon. And seriously. The reason I make money.
