I wore three or four-inch heels often and without giving it much thought for most of my adult life. On a busy day last summer, my favorite heels suddenly became very uncomfortable. I ended my grocery shopping halfway through my list because I had to get out of those heels. On that day, I knew that it was time to change my shoe choices.
I’ve donated or sold most of my high heels collection, so I needed to invest in some replacements. I plan to wear all of the shoes I show you today for the next few years.
My jewelry in these photos includes a ring I purchased a couple of years ago in a boutique in Highlands, NC. The earrings were a gift from Mr. Mickey. (Earrings here) The fabulous bracelet is here.
My top is by Clara Sunwoo via My Fair Lady (click here). The white jeans are by Everlane from last year. (Similar here) The handbag is a few years old. (Similar here) Affiliate and referral links in my post may generate a small commission for me at no charge to you.
I thought it might help to share some of my recent shoe purchases and explain why I chose them. The shoes I am wearing are by Marc Fisher from last year. (Similar here) While the heels are high, the pitch is low because of the platform in front. They are very comfortable. I wear them with long, loose-fitting tops and slim-fitting jeans, or I can wear them with wide-leg crops and slim-fitting shorter tops.
From left to right as shown above: The black flats with the gold buckle are here. The black suede pumps are here. The beige slingback pumps are here. The Cognac Suede pumps are here. The Maple Sugar flats are here. The pecan suede Espadrilles are here. The casual British Tan thong sandals are here.
I discuss why I bought each shoe and mention my foot shape in the video below. (Learn about the shapes of feet here.) The flat shoes are suitable to wear with straight or slightly flare leg pants that end at the top of the foot. Pair the heels with full leg crops, dressy pants, skirts or dresses, and of course straight or skinny leg jeans of any length.
