I bought a pair of the ugliest shoes ever

Top, Sweater, Yoga pants: Old Navy, Shoes: Payless
So yesterday, I went shopping and these little dearies happened to come on home with me. I've been admiring them for a bit now and I was just too cheap to bite the bullet and spend that much on such an ugly tennis shoe. But the promise of a toned booty with as little input as walking {Running is so not my fave. Post run: maybe, during: hating every step.} finally got the best of me. So, when I found these happies at Payless on sale for $24, they hopped right onto my toesies and I think I might be in love with them. Plus they give me about and extra three inches. Which is kinda cool, I guess.
By the way. This is not what I really look like working out. Ok, well maybe the hair. Which is pretty horrific. But add in a major tomato face. Because I get mega flushed if I so much as begin to get winded. This look is pretty much accurate for how I look on days when I don't post pictures of myself. See why? Yup. These yoga buddies are my besties for sure! Like PB and J we are!
Ok, I'm off to go test out my shoesies again before work! You'll know they work if I start posting a mass influx of rear shots. Not that i would do that. Ok, well maybe.
Love,
Ramsey

Ramsey you're too cute for words :) hha and i laughed out loud when I saw that you saying "this isn't what i look like working out' haha i get SUPER flushed too after a ridiculous work out ..gah! cute shoes though ;)

Natalia Lynn said...

You will definitely have to post if they work, I always wondered that. And I feel ya on the running thing, during I hate it, after I feel like I could run a marathon! Then I remember the actual running part, HA!

Well look at you incorporating colorblocking even when you are working out!! Go Ramsey, go!

And I know what you mean about hating running. It is the pits.

Aimee said...

I get mega flushed when I exercise too! I don't care how horrendous those shoes look, you totally rock them.

careful, apparently there's a study that they're really bad for your knees and joints.

Gentri said...

haha! You look adorable!! My face get's super red when I work out too. Not sure why, then it stays that way for an hour after. :P I need new running shoes so bad. They're next on my list of things I need.

Love the watermelon look of your workout gear! I think it's always good to wear happy colors to exercise.

If I could look like you in your pictures when I'm working out, I'd be content :)

Kenzie said...

Haha. I hate running to, but every once in a while I'll go out, thinking I can run like I used to be able to in high school. Never works out.

Oh and you should definitely check out this post. Because you're definitely in it and it has some fun stuff you might like :)

Rams,

(Is it okay if I call you that? Like we are friends or something?) Anywho, I was hooked when you said these shoes add an extra 3 inches! I'm shorty...and would love a little height action in a tennis shoe.

I may copy!

Thanks for sharing!

Oh don't you hate it when that happens?? But at the same time, if pictures of your bum and some rock-hard calves start popping up on the blog I might be willing to conform. Maybe.
You also look super comfy!

Elise said...

Nicole said...

You'll have to let us know if they work? I might (having said i'd never buy any of those shoes because how could they actually work!) have to get some! yikes.

Please let us know if the shoes work! I'll buy ugly shoes if they tone my butt like they claim they will!
