Day 4: Heel Hangover
February 27, 2009 § 2 Comments
Ladies, I know you can all relate…the pain one experiences after wearing vertiginously high heels, or just wearing any heels for several days in a row. The price we pay! After the first several days of the challenge and lots of walking in heels, my feet cried out for relief. The antidote: ballet flats. I love them almost as much as boots. They’re girlie, classic, comfortable and in this taupe, brown and green glen plaid fabric with the taupe grey patent trim, also adorable. This pair is going to be particularly hard to not repeat for the rest of the journey. But, my feet are getting a much needed rest for today…there are plenty more heels to suffer through before we’re finished here.

Date of Purchase: Spring 2008
Circumstances: I was in Denver visiting my sister Jen and we decided an outlet shopping trip was necessary, as it almost always is. We found a shoe store with racks and racks of fabulous deals and in no time at all I was carrying around at least 4 pairs. Knowing that my closet lacked in the flats department, I was on the hunt. She was on the hunt also, for cute practical flats for the office. These caught my eye immediately. Love the fabric, the patent trim, the buckle…and they were a steal. My sister and I have very different fashion tastes but we both shockingly fell in love with these flats! I purchased the colorway above, and she purchased them in a lovely dark chocolate plaid with dark chocolate patent trim. It was a bonding moment.
Compliment Meter: 2. They’re not scene stealers, but cute basics.
Comfort: Lovely. No complaints. Overall, a 9 out of 10.
Worn with: White v-neck, navy ‘varsity’ cardigan, faded cuffed jeans, grey and orange leather woven belt. Casual prep.
Thoughts: “If a woman rebels against high-heeled shoes, she should take care to do it in a very smart hat.” -George Bernard Shaw
