|Most of Kansas is flat - but this post is about non-flat women who wear flat shoes!|
Wearing flats that is - as in shoes - isn't really popular among the blogger world. But then I stumbled upon Kyla at bluecollarcatwalk and was entranced! In the past, I couldn't make the leap from my wish to look more "put together" to the examples I was seeing that all included four inch heels. I think I must have subconsciously just shut down over it. I quit trying somewhere along the way. I know I had decided that short, strawberry shaped women are just never going to look beautiful like that so it wasn't worth worrying about anymore.
I used to wear alot of heels and loved them. But I just don't have the time for it anymore. The change for me has been owning up to the fact that it is my decision. I no longer feel like I need to apologize to myself over it. And thanks to Kyla, I am serious this fall about planning my clothes around my flat heeled boots and shoes to start with, rather than changing into them at the last minute as I leave the house. Short legs are cute too!
According to caroltuttle.com Energy Profiling, a signature style for me as a dominant type 1 is probably "cute shoes". And to think I thought I needed to grow up! I have always loved funky weird shoes and I wear a small enough size that I sometimes get great deals on little girls styles. But then my corporate type (black) work wardrobe demanded boring shoes. I tried to blend in and be serious for over a decade. How depressing!
Luckily I hung on to many of my favorite weird cute flat shoes over the years! Now to start finding good tights or leggins combinations again........
