One of ways in which I feel like a failure as a Proper Grown Up Lady is my total incompetence with heels.
Or perhaps, more accurately, they hurt my feet and I don't feel like I can run around/climb trees in them. Which is how I evaluate everything I wear: "Can I run around in this? Would I be able to scrabble up an oak whilst wearing this?"
But, in an effort to assemble a slightly more stylish/adult/non-tree climbing wardrobe I've been hunting high and low for cute, sexy-ish shoes that I could actually walk around the block in. So, I researched and asked you guys and here are a few of the cutest, most comfortable ones I've found!
Okay, they're not even vaguely heels, but they're kind of fancy! And kind of sexy-ish, right? I think they'd be adorable with this dress and this hilarious clutch. Then you could be That Stylish Laid Back Girl Who Doesn't Take Herself Too Seriously. (They'll be able to tell you're laid back because you're wearing flats. And, by the way, I've spent most of my life trying to be the aforementioned girl.)
Cute little white v-neck t-shirt. Cuffed blue jeans. Pile of wooden bangles you've picked up at thrift stores. Big black sunglasses. Maybe a vintage scarf in your hair? Done.
Oh, look at you sexy, grown up shoes! Like, Probably Don't Wear You To The Office Shoes! But on the weekend to a show? Or drinks plus roller derby? Or 11 pm fruity drinks on a rooftop with your girlfriends? Yup.
Grey skinny jeans. That black linen sundress. That polka dotted pencil skirt. White shorts and a cute nautical top. I'm pretty sure they'd all work with these sweet little corkers!
What are you favorite actually wearable shoes? Can you (or do you) wear heels?
