You know I don’t wear flats all like that, right? It’s not because I’m only 5’1″ and feel the need to be taller… no, not at all. At my core, I am a heel. It’s natural and I just can’t imagine being one of those girls that can’t handle all day. I love a sexy 6″ heel in any color, skinny, wedge or platform anytime of day. Barring the necessary running shoe, rain boot or flip flops, there are the rarest of moments when I find an irresistible flat which leaves me second-guessing my tastes and loyalty to the fabulous heel.
I had such a moment a few weeks ago at Nordstrom Rack. I was there looking for some Hunter’s when I accidentally came across the most beautiful oxford I’ve ever laid my eyes on. I literally dropped everything I had in my hands and grabbed the tattered box. I tried them on, walked around, Instagrammed a pic to gauge opinion, and decided they were meant to be. But I’m not a compulsive buyer so I ran to customer service and put them on hold. They were perfect in every way, even having a green sole, but I had to make sure I was okay dropping $130 on a boldly colored FLAT!
I went back and snatched them. And now they’re mine. All mine.
I’m thinking they’ll make their way with me on my next international hop… to the Virgin Islands. The perfect excuse to give the stilettos a break.

Eat well, love unapologetically, pray with true intention, and take care of yourself.
