Heel Hateration

I am about to admit something that could possibly cause me to be evicted from the fashion blogosphere: I hate high heels. Absolutely HATE them. As a little girl, I couldn't wait to wear high heels. I used to practice in my mom's in the hallway (you know you did, too) and was absolutely thrilled when, at 12 years old, I got my first pair of kitten heels of my very own. I was in love. Fast forward 20 years. I now hate high heels. They just keep letting me down. I can't tell you how many times I would slip them on with the best of intentions, only to end up hobbling home (if I can even make it home without taking them off first). So now, if you ever see me wearing them, it's usually for  a very specific reason - like, my dress is too long and I didn't have an opportunity to get it hemmed. Or, I'm going to an event where I know that I'm going to spend most of my time sitting. I just hate them. They hurt my feet. And I can't be cute when I'm in pain. That's why I spend most of my time in flats. (Thank you, FLOTUS, for making flats chic again.) They sleek, pretty and COMFORTABLE. What about you, dear readers? What's your favorite shoe style?

    Co-sign! Me + heels = no fun. I do enjoy a nice high wedge or platform heel when I want to get my “tall” on though ;-) Love, love, love my flats and I make no apologies for it!
