This morning, it was a little nippy out so I opted to bypass the sandals and flip-flops for a pair of silver ballet flats that I have had for about six years now. I am really hoping they don't fall apart on me - I do have quite a few shoes that I love but I carry and extra pair of shoes with me because you never know when they are going to go kaput.

I'd say the average lifespan of a shoe in my closet (plastic flip-flops excluded) is about 7-9 seasons. I know it's a long time but I have a wide foot with a high instep and it's hard to find cute shoes that are also comfortable.
