My, how FLATtering you are!!

I watch as their eyes gaze down to the ground. I can tell that they are staring at my shoes. I already know the question they are going to ask: “Leah, are you wearing FLATS today?”

I fix my mouth to smile sweetly, and prepare to give them a confusing answer: “Yes, maybe,” I say. Their perplexed face follows my response.

A woman who loves heels can still be stylish in a pair of flats, right?

Right.

Flats are part of my shoe collection. In comparison to heels, my flats lose by a longshot. But, there are those times when flats are necessary.

1)Changing into cuter shoes – cute flats are the prelude to the cute heels that you are about to wear. Or, in my writing vernacular, flats foreshadow heels. Personally, certain heels I have do not touch the ground (concrete/gravel) to avoid getting scuffed or more importantly to avoid me falling and breaking my neck. Therefore, I wear my flats and then change when I reach my destination.

2) Still looking stylish while resting your feet – Let’s face it ladies, no matter how much we try to walk through the pain- HEELS HURT!!! and sometimes, it’s beneficial to give your feet a rest and change into a pair of flats. No shame, no need to be embarrassed. Better to wear flats than to limp around in a pair of heels that are obviously murdering your feet after a long day of wear. coach.jpg

Are flats part of your shoe collection? And, I think I’m going to consider purchasing a pair of Coach flats. Any suggestions on the style or color?

April Showers Brings…

For years I’ve seen girls wear the cutest styles of rainboots: Burberry,

florals, Coach, polka dots you name it! As much as I liked them I didn’t feel I needed to buy a pair.

These are so cute I wouldn't even want to wear them!

Patterns!!

Patterns!!

But, I caved in. (it should be mentioned that I went to DSW for rainboots ONLY because I had store credit that I wanted to use).

I didn’t buy the most pimped out pair, but instead I bought an everyday/ average navy blue pair with a pop of pink on the trim of the boots.

Yes, they have come in handy,

Yes, I plan to buy another pair (patterned this time)

and Yes, wearing these rain boots makes me want to go fishing-seriously. Boots

So, to the month of April I say “Bring on the showers, because I will be fashionably ready!”
