I used to have so much time to go shopping with the girls. We would wonder down Chapel Street or through Flinders Lane, visiting all the little boutiques. I can’t say those days are entirely over but with each passing year and extra child, the days are growing fewer and further between.
It’s still important for me to have nice things. I like to look my best and be comfortable but I do a lot more of my shopping online now, in lulls at work or when I find a moment to myself. Online shoe shopping can actually be kind of fun and the prices are usually much better. You can also find shoes that are much harder to get in stores and certain brands like Planet Shoes, which I just adore, have great online stores. For me, it helps make the situation less of a compromise.
