I have too many shoes. (…) But I think I’m getting close to figuring out how many I actually, really need. About 12 pairs, but only 10 would be out at any one time (I live in a very seasonal part of the country). FYI, I work from home, but also attend events and meetings regularly, some of them “fancy,” so I can’t get away with just wearing the same pair of sandals every day.

Here’s my list:

Two pairs of running sneakers: (…)
One pair of good quality flip-flops: (…)
Two pairs of brightly colored sandals with heels: (…)
Nude-colored ballet flats or flat sandals: (…)
Two pairs of boots, one high, one low: (…)
Hiking sandals: (…)
Two pairs of low-heeled, cold-weather shoes (…)
Crazy, sexy, ridiculous, fun shoes for dancing (or just standing in, looking good): (…)
One pair of serious winter snow boots: (…)
